It’s always inspiring to see our favorite celebrities spending time with their families. We also see another side of them as fathers after their children have grown up.

Val Kilmer’s children adore him, as evidenced by the lovely Instagram photos of their relationship with him.

Top Gun: Maverick is the sequel to the well-known 1986 film. Fans of all ages were overjoyed to see Tom Cruise’s character Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, reprise the role and get a glimpse into his life as a successful aviator.

The unexpected announcement that Val Kilmer will reprise his legendary role as Tom “Iceman” Kazansky for the film only added to the excitement of thousands of fans!

Because of the actor’s recent health issues, his character’s appearance on screen meant even more to viewers.

Val previously expressed his excitement to work with Tom Cruise again, saying that seeing Tom again “felt like no time had passed at all.”

Even though everyone was overjoyed to see Val Kilmer return for this long-awaited sequel, there were probably two people who were overjoyed the most.

His children, Mercedes and Jack, were present. His daughter posted photos from the set with captions. “Finally allowed to post these photos from the @topgunmovie set Maverick, which is now available!”

In the photo, she and her brother Jack are wearing pilot caps, and her brother is wearing his aviator specs. Jack is also strikingly similar to a young Val Kilmer.

The final image showed a father and daughter cuddling, possibly because Mercedes’s father was on set. It’s fantastic that his daughter and son could accompany him to the set and observe him at work.

Jack, his infant son, looks exactly like his famous father. The parallels are startling!

Val’s health has been difficult recently, and some issues remain. We wish him good health even though he has been doing well.

It’s always adorable to watch a father’s relationship with his children. We wish Val Kilmer and his family the best of health!
