When Tracee Ellis Ross first found out that she got an Emmy nomination for playing Rainbow Johnson on the hit ABC series Black-ish, the first person she called was her mom. “She was really cute and we screamed for a little bit,” Ross told People. Then the legendary Diana Ross did the cutest famous-mom thing possible and took out a full-page ad in The Hollywood Reporter to congratulate her baby girl. ”
