NBA legend Magic Johnson is the proud father of three children: EJ and Elisa, who are part of the entertainment industry, and Andre, his eldest, who prefers to keep his life out of the spotlight. He’s a husband and dad of two and has a successful career in the gaming industry.
Magic Johnson’s kids with wife Cookie, EJ and Elisa, are no strangers to the spotlight.
But the pair of socialites are not the only second-generation Johnsons. They have an older brother, Andre, who was the product of Magic’s relationship with ex-girlfriend Melissa Mitchell, whom he dated in the early stages of his basketball career.
Andre maintains a healthy relationship with both of his parents, but unlike his siblings, he prefers to lead a most comfortable and normal life out of the sight of the cameras and flashes.
He’s married to a woman named Lisa, and they have two kids: daughter Gigi, and son Avery.
Andre graduated from the Santa Monica College with an associate in Business management. At one point, he worked on his father’s company Magic Johnson Enterprises as Vice President of Business Development, and later on, was promoted to Executive Vice President.
He also worked as a producer at Hydra-Entertainment, as head of Business Development at The Virtual Reality Company, and is now Vice President of Business Development at Mythical Games, a next-generation game technology studio.
His wife, Lisa, not only is a dedicated mother but also the co-founder of the Private School Village, an organization that seeks to connect Black/African American families whose kids attend private schools in Los Angeles.
According to their page, they “build community by organizing social events, sharing resources, and providing programs for Black/African-American families in independent schools. They also help students realize their maximum potential by working alongside parents, students, and private schools.
Gigi and Avery, like their grandfather, are very passionate about sports. They are Dodgers fans and never miss a home game. Avery is also playing baseball.
On top of that, Gigi is talented at volleyball, football and can also strut down a catwalk showing off her modeling skills, like she recently did at the Ladylike Foundation luncheon.
Andre and his beautiful family sometimes join their famous peers on special occasions and holidays, proving that there’s nothing but love among the Jonhsons.
