Pauley Perrette celebrated the 84th birthday of her father in an adoring way as she invited her parent to the set of her upcoming comedy on CBS Broke.
The 50-year-old actress shared a video on her Twitter page, showing her standing next to her father, Coosa County Commissioner Paul Perrette, as she explains she chose to sing his favorite song, “Because He Lives,” in tribute to his presence there.
At the start of the footage, the TV star confesses she is scared of performing when singing is required but begins with the song anyway.
The father and daughter sang together for most of the song before finishing with a hug.
Pauley said: “So Dad is here visiting from Alabama for His 84th birthday. He came to our live audience taping of my new show #Broke I sang to him. (Caution: HE’S PRECIOUS!)”
One observer replied: “This is so beautiful. He IS precious, Pauley. What a blessing he is in your life & you to him. Such love.”
A second fan said: “That’s so sweet! What a great memory you two just made together! Make as many as you can, as often as you can!!”
Another commenter stated: “That beautiful thing!!!!!😢❤❤❤❤ Very thrilling!!!! And I love the song that you sang; it’s so beautiful…❤ Yeah, he’s so precious,and I wish a very happy birthday to him,that God bless him, and that he have a very special day…❤ I have sure of proud that he has of you!❤”
Broke is scheduled to be out in 2020, and the storyline is about Perrette’s character, Jackie, who struggles as a single mother to a boy, Milo, (played by Antonio Corbo), and works as a bartender.
However, everything is about to change when Jackie’s sister, Elizabeth, (played by Natasha Leggero), and her husband, Javier, (played by Jaime Camil), appears with the news that they have to move in with them since they are no longer rich and cannot afford their old lifestyle anymore.
The upcoming comedy is an excellent comeback for Perrette. It is going to be the first significant role for the actress since she left the TV series NCIS, where she portrayed character Abby Sciuto from 2003 until 2018 and after her fight with Mark Harmon.
The actress gushed about her new role on Twitter in a new post, saying she was thrilled and thanked everyone who supported her through the last few years, which were very difficult for her.
