D.L. Hughley Tearfully Recounts His Son's Latest Victory Over Asperger's (VIDEO)

D. L. Hughley

Comedian D. L. Hughley may always leave us laughing via sitcoms like The Hughleys, but the actor recently got teary-eyed talking about his son, Kyle, who was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome as a child.

In an interview on Oprah: Where Are They Know?, D.L revealed that Kyle, now 26, has graduated college, but still must stick to a regimented schedule -- from eating the same thing to heading to work at the same time every day.


Only recently when Kyle offered to fill his father's car with gas, the realization that his son could handle these changes to his routine made D. L. realize his son would be okay.

Cue the waterworks!
