LeBron James' wife Savannah shared photos of their daughter Zhuri as she celebrated her fifth birthday, and the little cutie is her mom's adorable mini-me. Zhuri has also proven in time past that she’s a daddy’s girl.
It seemed like only yesterday when LeBron and his lovely wife welcomed their daughter, but now, she’s an adorable five-year-old melting hearts on social media.
Zhuri recently clocked the big 5, and her mom took to Instagram with photos of the birthday girl while marveling at how much time has gone by.
Who else can make one of the greatest basketball players take part – eagerly, we might add – in a "Frozen" theme music singalong
Judging from the snapshots, not only is Zhuri a budding fashionista, but she also seems like a fun-loving kid. A few poses here and there for the camera, one shot of her enjoying a drink, and another of her in a princess costume tells us all we need to know.
Meanwhile, Savannah also shared a picture of Zhuri’s four-tier cake decorated with lots of colorful stars and thunderbolts.
"Happy Birthday to my baby #ZhuriNova," the proud mom captioned her post. "Still can’t believe she’s 5 today!! Love you, mama!!"
Fans and friends in the comment section made sure to leave their good wishes for the birthday girl. "Happy Birthday Zhuri!!!" actress La La Anthony wrote. "[You’re] growing up fast, beautiful girl."
"Happy Birthday Zhuri," a second Instagram user chimed in. "Many Blessings to you today."
This bright spot right here happened to our family. And not only did she change me; she’s made me a better person.
While Zhuri seems to have her mom’s whole face, she is also very much a daddy’s girl. LeBron, 34, said as much in his tribute to the five-year-old.
Alongside a photo of Zhuri grinning at the camera, he gushed:
"Happy 5th Beautiful-Day party (Tues official day/date) my Princess Zhuri Nova Ann-Marie James!!!!!! Daddy loves his lil girl with every single inch and more of his heart for eternity and beyond! Enjoy your day mommy face."
LeBron and Savannah also share sons LeBron Jr., 15, and Bryce Maximus, 12, but Miss Zhuri holds a special spot in her daddy’s heart. After all, who else can make one of the greatest basketball players take part – eagerly, we might add – in a "Frozen" theme music singalong in his car?
Last year, LeBron shared two videos that showed him belting out the lyrics to "Let It Go" and "Love Is An Open Door," two popular songs from the 2013 Disney animated film soundtrack. Right beside him in the car was Zhuri, who seemed to be calling the shots.
"She controls the music when she rides with me. The Boss, aka Baby Z!" the LA Lakers Power Forward captioned one of the videos.
If LeBron’s love for Zhuri was ever in question, one only need to refer to what he said about her while accepting his Harlem Fashion Row 360 Award last year.
Per Hello Giggles, the 6ft 9in player said:
"People always told me, if you ever have a girl she’ll change you. Three years ago, this bright spot right here happened to our family. And not only did she change me, she’s made me a better person. A more dedicated person, a stronger person."
"I guess a more sensitive person that realized that I have so much more of a responsibility to women in general," he added. "So, thank you, Zhuri."
Happy birthday, Zhuri! Keep being the amazing star that you already are.
