Amirah “Mimi” O’Neal looks like her mom’s twin in recent pics shared to Instagram. The gorgeous 17-year-old got the best of both worlds, as she inherited her father’s passion for basketball and her mother’s good fashion taste.
Mimi O’Neal is proving the world that she has what it takes to continue with her last name legacy. She’s the second youngest daughter of NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal and reality show producer Shaunie O'Neal, and even though she shares the love and attention of her parents with four siblings, she’s the princess at home.
O’Neal recently turned heads and earned praise from fans after she took to Instagram to share a pair of pics flaunting her curves. She wore tiny black shorts and a long-sleeve blue top that featured a low neckline, showing off her toned legs and a hint of cleavage, as she posed with a city landscape in the background.
“roll wit it’” she captioned the post.
Fans and friends filled the comment section gushing about Mimi’s good looks. “Gorgeous pics @mimioneal_ that view dope asf,” wrote one user, and other brought up the resemblance Mimi has with Shaunie, saying “If you not yo momma twin I’m blind.”
Mimi is a versatile young woman. While most of her pics show a glamorous teenager that likes to dress up to impress, she’s also a talented basketball player, just like her father.
She plays for The Crossroads girls’ team, her high school’s team, just like her eldest brother Shareef did through his high school years.
Two years ago, Mimi celebrated her Sweet Sixteen with a lavish party organized in a joint effort from her parents. The celebration that was valued in around $1 million and took place at the roof of Hollywood's W Hotel.
Billboard award nominated rapper YG made a special performance for Mimi and her guests, and later, Shaunie and Shaquille surprised their girl with a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen.
Mimi looked beautiful on her special day, wearing a long sheer black skirt with a black crop top and black strappy heels as she adorned her neck with a sparkly necklace.
And on her 17th birthday last year, Shaunie made sure to honor her daughter with a sweet message, so she took to Instagram to post a series of pics of Mimi, adding in the heartfelt caption:
“HAPPY 17th BIRTHDAY to my favorite, most beautiful, intelligent, talented, sweet, loving 17year old in the whole world. I LOVE YOU so much! @mimioneal_ #yourstillmybaby #oldestdaughter #bff.”
Is clear that Mimi makes her parents proud, and fans are already looking forward to what path she will take after finishing high school, whether is basketball, like her father, or the entertainment industry, like her mother.
