Feeling overwhelmed at a family event is not a rare occurrence, but for Dawn Thandeka King it was a dream come true.
King and her family were all gathered for a celebration. Everyone was dressed to the nines and looked like they were ready for a fantastic time. Dawn Thandeka King had no idea that they were about to surprise her.
Her nearest and dearest suddenly stood up to make speeches about the star. They chronicled her life, her struggles and her successes. The family members said how proud they were of her and all her achievements in the entertainment industry.
The star looked gorgeous and was so touched by her loving family's words that she couldn't help but get emotional. Dawn took to Instagram to share photos from the touching event.

In previous Dawn Thandeka King news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on the star having to clear up pregnancy rumours after fans misinterpreted a photo.
Dawn Thandeka King has had to go back online and post another picture to Instagram to clear up some rumours. The award-winning actress had previously posted photos from a shoot, with one in particular getting fans into a frenzy. Thandeka's pose and inclusion of her hubby in the photo had fans assuming it was a cryptic hint at a pregnancy announcement.
Thandeka jumped back onto social media to remind her followers not to make assumptions and rush judgments. She said she was simply a "voluptuous, African woman" and that she was indeed expecting great things, but that a baby was not currently on that list.
The star was photographed in front of an orange backdrop as she rocked a snakeskin dress and long hair. The two pictures are clearly from the same photoshoot which followers could now see had nothing to do with maternity and probably involved multiple different shots.
The star did not address how she felt about the pregnancy rumours, but it certainly served as a reminder to followers that assumptions about people's lives and bodies are inadvisable.
