Meet Whoopi Goldberg’s 2 Granddaughters: All About Amarah and Jerzey Dean

Published

on

Known for iconic roles in movies like The Color Purple, Sister Act and Ghost, Whoopi Goldberg is one of only 18 EGOT winners, who have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Award for their work.

Before all of that, though, she had a daughter, Alexandra “Alex” Martin Dean, who now has three children: Goldberg’s granddaughters, Amara and Jerzey, and her grandson, Mason.

Goldberg had Alex when she was 18, after marrying her former drug counselor Alvin Martin in 1973. They divorced in 1979, and Goldberg was then married twice after.

In May 2024, Goldberg is publishing a book about her family, Bits & Pieces: My Mother, My Brother, and Me.

“This book is dedicated to everyone who is just trying to figure out the small stuff as well as the stuff where you have to be more than you thought you could be and it’s dedicated to love,” Goldberg said in a press release.

Keep reading for everything to know about Whoopi Goldberg’s two granddaughters.

Amara Skye Dean, 35

Amara was born on Nov. 13, 1989, in Berkeley, California, the first daughter of Alex Martin and Bernard Dean. She and her grandmother, who was only 34 when Amara was born, share the same birthday.

On March 16, 2014, Amara welcomed daughter Charli Rose Burr-Reynaud. “We’re a young family,” Amara told Essence in 2023. “My grandmother’s mother raised me for a little bit. My grandmother is a great-grandmother to my daughter. So we’ve created that connection. There’s only five of us in our family. We’re all we’ve got, so we take each other real close.”

Shortly after Charli’s birth, Goldberg talked about her new great-granddaughter on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. “I wasn’t your normal grandmother, and I’m not going to be your normal great-grandmother,” she said.

When Fallon asked her what Charli would call her, she said, “She better call me Whoopi.”

In 2023, Amara appeared on the show Claim to Fame, where relatives of celebrities attempt to conceal their identities in order to win a prize. As she prepared to be on the show, she got the blessing of her grandmother, who gave her some advice: “Be a strong b—– and come back happy,” Amara recalled.

There are so many people on here that talk nonsense about Coco. She was 15 they said she’s getting too much hype. When she started to have a little success at 16 and 17 they said she would never go up high in the rankings, but she went up to the top 20. Then they said well she’ll never make the top 10. Then when she made the top 5 they said, well she’ll never go higher. And then when she made the top 3 they said she would never win a grand slam. And then she won a grand slam. Then they said she’ll never go higher than number 3 and now she’s number 2. It never ends and she keeps getting the last on everybody.
