In the world of basketball, a few names reign supreme, and one of these names are LeBron James. Many people claim to know King James, but the fact is that they only know him as the basketball player who strives to leave his mark on every NBA team he plays for. Since he currently plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers, there’s more to King James than what we see on the hardwood floors. His personal life is full of amazing people who inspire him to stay at the top of his game. In this article, you will learn more about LeBron James’ wife, children, and family.
LeBron James Wife
Behind every successful man is a woman. These are not my words, but a saying that has been used since time immemorial and in fact applies largely to men around the world, including your favorite NBA star, King LeBron James. This superstar is married to Savannah Brinson, his high school sweetheart.
Although he proposed to her at a New Year’s Eve party on December 31, 2011 (which was also his 27th birthday party), the marriage was not consummated until September 14, 2013, in a colorful ceremony in San Diego.
As mentioned earlier, Brinson was LeBron’s high school sweetheart. They started dating when she was 16 years old and were together for 12 years before they entered into the covenant of marriage.
So far they have managed to have three children: two sons and a daughter. Brinson became pregnant with James’ first in the middle of the final year of high school. She was born on October 4, 2004.
Before they were officially married, they had another son. The couple welcomed their first girl after their marriage, bringing the total to three. Unlike most Hollywood power couples, this duo has managed to keep their lives and relationships together since high school. I bet you’d agree that this is not an easy thing to do, especially when you’re a celebrity.
Brinson’s profession is based in the fashion industry. With her husband’s help, in 2013, while they were still living in Miami, she started a campaign they called the I PROMISE makeover campaign. The campaign debuted at an event in the American Airlines Arena.
The event brought together fifty at-risk high school senior girls from suburban Miami to provide them with dresses, makeup tips, and accessories to prepare for the prom. It confirms that LeBron is a big fan of the I PROMISE makeover campaign.
LeBron James Kids
As already mentioned, this superstar has three children born to him from his only wife. The firstborn is named LeBron James Jr. (alias Bronny). He was born on October 6, 2004. The second born is Bryan Maximus James, born on June 14, 2007, and the third born, a beautiful daughter, Zhuri James, was born on October 22, 2014.
The first-born comes after his father and already shows signs of efficiency in basketball. He dominates in the preparatory round and has not missed a step since his team change.
Lebron James did not hide the fact that he is not happy with the recruitment of his son by the NCAA as his son is only 10 years old. I bet you can’t suppress a talent when it shows and the boy will definitely follow in his father’s footsteps.
The second-born Bryce Maximus James is now 8 years old and already shows passion for the game. He loves chocolate, likes Michael Jackson’s Beat It’ and not surprisingly plays basketball. The last born, little Zhuri James is a star in the making. We can’t be sure about her passions, but it’s only natural that she would borrow a lot from her mother, Savanna Brinson.
In summary, LeBron James has built a great career and a wonderful African American family. This is very unique compared to what we see in other celebrity relationships. His story has inspired so many people and will continue to do so. Maybe we will see the two sons of LeBron grow up to be even better basketball players than their father. We’re also not sure if the family will continue to grow, but we’re ready for any new developments and we’ll provide updates as they happen.
