Actress Danielle Fishel Karp Celebrates Son’s First Birthday: ‘You Have Been an Endless Joy”


During a year that has seen its share of troubles, Danielle Fishel Karp found a way on Wednesday (June 24) to remind us all that there is still much to celebrate.

Take for instance the occasion of her son Adler’s first birthday, which the actress recognized in part with a heartwarming Instagram post in her darling son’s honor.

“ONE YEAR,” the Boy Meets World actress wrote alongside a picture of the little boy she shares with husband Jensen Karp. “From a preemie with chylothorax to a sweet and hilarious toddler, you have been an endless joy in an otherwise dark year. Thanks for making it easy to get out of bed at 5:50a every day because I know I have your smile waiting for me. And coffee.”

Indeed, it’s been quite the journey for this family of three, as Adler was in fact born four weeks premature and has dealt with health issues stemming from his chylothorax condition, where the lymphatic fluid leaks into the space between the lung and chest wall.  However, this family remains committed to staying optimistic and celebrating life’s beautiful moments.

And, whenever they can, they celebrate love.

“(Jensen Karp) and I love you more than literally anything else,” continued Fishel Karp, who also appeared in the spin-off Girl Meets World from 2014 to 2017. “And we always will. Happy birthday, Adler.”
