Jackie Christie's Granddaughter Melts Hearts Adorably Dancing in New Video Shared by Mom
"Basketball Wives" star Jackie Christie’s granddaughter is an absolute cutie in a new video shared by her mom Ta'Kari Lee via social media. The tot showed off her dance moves, and fans are all for it.
Ta'Kari and her children were thrown into the spotlight a few years back and even though the mom of four is keeping a low profile these days, fans continue to enjoy the social media updates she shares of her family.
A few days ago, Ta’Kari took to Instagram with a video of her daughter, Ja’Cynda Cora-Lee Isaacs, busting some moves in a black-and-white hooded sweatshirt. In the adorable clip, the toddler throws up her arms in excitement and stomps as a song plays in the background.
When Ta’Kari first had her name splashed across headlines, it was because of her son Jaxson who got badly burned
"Lil’ Turn Up," Ta'Kari captioned the video, and tagged her daughter’s Instagram page.
"This made my day! You go, girl! She is so freaking adorable," one fan gushed.
"Omg. Baby getting big. I feel like a distant auntie," added another.
Sadly, Ta’Kari’s relationship with her birth mother is not exactly a pleasant tale. According to ESSENCE, she was born six years before Jackie met and married her now-husband, former NBA player Doug Christie.
Ta’Kari’s biological dad was in prison as of 2017 and she admitted not knowing much about his relationship with Jackie other than the two once did business together before things got personal.
In 2016, when Ta’Kari first had her name splashed across headlines, it was because of her son Jaxson who got badly burned in an accident at his daycare.
The then-mom-of-three created a GoFundMe campaign to solicit funds for his medical bills and things escalated in the press after her connection to Jackie was uncovered and Jackie’s "Basketball Wives" rival Evelyn Lozada, made a hefty donation.
Ta'Kari opened up about never having a mother-child connection with Jackie and revealed that she was raised by her maternal grandmother in Tacoma, Washington. The reality star, meanwhile, went on to have two more kids, daughter Chantel and son Douglas Jr. with her husband.

"When Jaxson got hurt, I did not expect anything," Ta'Kari told ESSENCE, adding:
"I was surprised [the accident wasn’t] enough reason for something, a text, an e-mail, a letter in the mail, anything… I wish I could get her approval, but at some point you accept you’re not gonna get it. And when my son got hurt, that’s what happened. It became accepted."
Ta’Kari appeared alongside her mom and sister on "BW" but eventually retreated and chose to write a book about her experiences titled "Lights to Her Shadow."
"I have a testimony, besides everything you guys see on TV. That’s somebody else’s reality. I have my own," she disclosed to MadameNoire last year. "I hope to inspire everyone to let them know you can go through things, but that does not have to predict what you become."
