Shaquille O'Neal's ex-wife, Shaunie, is a doting mom known for sharing precious moments with her children. The reality star recently posted a throwback photo with the crew, including some friends, and fans love it.


Shaq and Shaunie have been divorced for nine years now, but the exes will always share the love they have for their kids. The "Basketball Wives" star showed off that side a few days ago.

Shaunie, 45, took to Instagram with a throwback group picture featuring some of her kids and friends being goofy in a photo booth. Her sons, Myles, Shareef, and Shaqir, were present, as was her daughter, Me'Arah.

Shaunie has, however, never discriminated against her children in their chosen passions. Back in August, she showed how impressed she was after Shareef got a tattoo

"We love a good photo booth," wrote Shaunie, who also shares an 18-year-old daughter, Amirah, with the retired Los Angeles Lakers legend.


Fans in the comment section were full of adoring words for the beautiful family. "Nice family picture," one Instagram user said while another tagged Shaunie and her kids "the ONEAL gang!!"

A fellow mom in the comments also left a heartwarming comment about how Shaunie encourages her to "continue to elevate." "I love how much you love your children!!!! You are a beyond devoted mom!!!" she added.


Shaunie has come a long way from the days when she and Shaq were having problems co-parenting their kids. According to CheatSheet, she revealed last year that the first five or six years after their divorce were pretty rough.

Fortunately, the exes seem to be on the same page now, and their kids are the better for it. Shaunie and Shaq share four biological kids, while each has a child from previous relationships.


Before getting together, Shaunie had a son, Myles, from a previous relationship. Shaq, 47, raised the boy as his own and gave him his name. The sports commentator also has a daughter, Taahira, with a former girlfriend.

In November, Shaq and Shaunie got together to throw their daughter, Amirah, a talk-of-the-town birthday party. The young lady turned 18 and got to celebrate with her parents, her siblings, and her high school friends.


Per BCK Online, Amirah, like almost all her siblings, is following in Shaq's footsteps. The 6 ft 2 senior center for Crossroads High School is reportedly making a name for herself on the court and attracting media attention.

Shareef, 19, who underwent successful heart surgery in December 2018, is also currently playing for UCLA, as are Shaqir and Me'Arah in their respective schools. Myles, on his part, is a fast-rising model.

Shaunie has, however, never discriminated against her children in their chosen passions. Back in August, she showed how impressed she was after Shareef got a tattoo of her face, and a few days ago, the doting mom raved over Myles' feature in a new commercial.
