Michael Jordan's Daughter & Her Fiancé Share Heartwarming Photos from Their Epic Baby Shower
Michael Jordan’s daughter and her basketball player fiancé Rakeem Christmas were treated to a baby shower earlier this month, and the couple shared heartwarming photos from the event.
Jasmine Jordan, the 26-year-old daughter of a man regarded by many as one of the greatest basketball players of all time, could not hide her delight at the library-themed intimate shower put together for her by family and friends.
Taking to Instagram with photos from the event, Jasmine revealed that it held on February 9, and called it “one of the greatest surprises in my life.”
Jasmine has been updating fans on Instagram with photos of her growing bump.
The walls were decorated with books and flowers while the room was filled with scented candles. The menu was indeed an artistic piece, resting comfortably on a prop that resembled a combination of a typewriter and filing cabinet.
There were also baby toys and of course, food and drinks, all going with the blue color theme that point to the baby’s gender.
Rakeem, 27, shared similar pictures from the shower, including one where he and Jasmine attended to stuffed bears in what looked like a fun game to prepare them for the real deal.
Jasmine admitted in her post caption that her mom, friends, and the event planner “truly outdid themselves.”
The sports management graduate further gushed about the baby gifts that mean a lot to her:
“It was put together last minute but you would’ve NEVER known! A simple weekend to see my family turned into an incredible memory I look forward to sharing with my munchkin.
Besides seeing my family, the best part of the shower was receiving/collecting several children’s book by black authors. I look forward to reading each book to and with my little man where the characters illustrated within them look like him.”
The soon-to-be mom cannot wait to meet her little one either. “Just know that 2019 has already become my favorite year for the mere fact that becoming your mom will give me the greatest purpose in life,” she wrote to him in a recent reflective post.
Rakeem and Jasmine got engaged last June after meeting at Syracuse University. The stunning beauty is the only daughter of Michael and his ex-wife Juanita Vanoy. She has two older brothers, Jeffrey, 30, and Marcus, 28.
With his current spouse, Yvette Prieto, Michael, 56, is a dad to five-year-old twin girls, Victoria and Ysabel.
