LeBron James’ wife Savannah paid tribute to her lovely mom on her birthday, and the resemblance between both women is uncanny.
Most people know Savannah James, wife to one of the best NBA players of all time, but fewer know her mother, Jennifer Brinson. Hours ago, Savannah took to Instagram to wish her mother a happy birthday with a photo of the duo sitting at a table.
Both women wore identical smiles, but even if they didn’t, the resemblance would still have been visible. In the caption, Savannah praised her mother:
“Happy Birthday Mom!!! Thank you for everything you’ve done for me and my family!! Love you!!”
Fans and famous friends alike turned up in the comments section to drop their best wishes for Savannah’s mom as well. “So pretty,” Jordyn woods wrote.
Another Instagram user chimed in: “Happy birthday, Savannah's mother!! You raised a beautiful woman inside and out!!”
Jennifer and her husband, JK Brinson, raised five children in Akron, Ohio, according to Cleveland Magazine.
Savannah, who is known for her philanthropic causes, told the outlet in a 2017 interview that she inherited the trait from her parents who would often take in young people.
“If they had something going on at home, or they just needed a safe haven, my mom and dad always opened up their doors.”
Meanwhile, Jennifer’s birthday comes less than a month after her youngest child turned 33 and got a royal shout-out from her 15-time NBA All-Star hubby.
Sharing a series of romantic photos to celebrate his wife’s big day, LeBron thanked Savannah for her presence in his life.
“Words can’t express my appreciation for you,” he captioned an Instagram picture slide. “And it’s not for everyone else anyways cause they wouldn’t understand unless they been around this journey of ours.”
LeBron and Savannah’s “journey” date back to almost two decades ago when the two met in their hometown of Ohio. The couple met and started dating while in high school and have been together ever since.
LeBron popped the big question on New Year's Eve 2011 at a Miami party. Now-retired NBA player Dwayne Wade and wife, Gabrielle Union, were present.
Happy Birthday again to Jennifer Brinson!
