Oprah Winfrey showers her 'daughter-girls' with gifts during Thanksgiving bash with her partner, family
The 68-year-old television icon took to her Instagram and shared special moments where the women were seen celebrating in the family home. The first clip shared by Winfrey shows the family singing an African song as a tradition for Paul, 'daughter-girl' Palesa's spouse, as he was spending Thanksgiving with the family for the first time. "Yearly tradition: African song for newcomer Paul, spouse to daughter-girl Palesa. Thanksgiving is in full force here," the post read.
'The Oprah Winfrey Show' star shared another post where she sat across her long-term partner Graham while her daughters surrounded them as they sang along to Cece Winan's 'Goodness of God'. The song was apparently recommended by her daughter-girl Thando Dolma, who could not join the family as she was occupied with work. Winfrey captioned the post, "My daughter-girl @thando_d is working away and couldn’t make Thanksgiving this year, so she sent me this beautiful song by @cecewinans titled “Goodness of God.” It was such a blessing in my life that we tried something a little different at my table and instead of saying a blessing before the food, we sang out loud. Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours."
The final post found the television producer bringing in a stack of presents to gift her daughter-girls. From skincare products to brand new smartglasses, Winfrey made sure to bring all the essentials for her girls on Thanksgiving. She said, "I think the holidays are better shared so I had such a great time gifting my daughter-girls all of my favorite things: @drbarbarasturm skincare products (a must-have in my beauty cabinet), @anastasiabeverlyhills brow essentials, and @rayban smartglasses that you can take pictures and videos with! Happy holidays."
Winfrey does not have any biological children. She gave birth to a child when she was only 14 but the infant did not survive. However, the famous talk show presenter is a "mother" to many girls who have hugely benefited from the "Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls" in South Africa, according to Amomama. Winfrey refers to the girls at OWLAG as her daughters while they call her "mom-O."
