Child Star Coy Stewart celebrated his 13th birthday at IT-ology in his hometown of Columbia, SC recently. Stewart, star on TBS’s hit show “Are We There Yet?” shoots the series in Connecticut, but headed to his hometown to celebrate his birthday. With him he brought all the glamor of a “real” Hollywood party with true red carpet treatment extended to his guests. They enjoyed dancing, time in the VIP area, photo ops and many special amenities provided by local vendors who embraced Coy and made his trip home truly special. Guests received their own gift bags filled with goodies from FOX, TBS and several local companies including Groucho’s Deli. Decor was provided by PartyDotts.
Friends and family celebrated along with the mayor’s wife Judge DeAndrea Benjamin and her children, Coy’s manager Jamie Malone of MC Talent Management who flew in from LA for the event, and the children of NBA superstar Mark Curry, Coy’s godfather. The icing on the cake was when Mayor Benjamin’s office made a surprise proclamation, announcing June 17, 2011 to be Coy Stewart Day.
Coy also stars in the PBS series “The Electric Company” and is active in several charity organizations.
Sometimes it is hard to remember that these kids are normal people, too. I’m happy that he got to experience some of the normal 13 year-old activities!
