The picture, which was used to mark Cora's birthday, came with a "happy birthday" caption that got his fans talking in the comment section. While many wished his mother-in-law well, others stated that they now saw where his wife got her beauty from.

The Johnson family sure had a lot to be thankful for as their daughter had escaped a horrifying incident back in 2018.

 

The comments about his wife's beauty must have warmed the heart of Magic as he has often bragged about their relationship. Essence noted that the basketball Hall of Famer had once taken to Instagram to tell his wife that:

"The job you've done as a mother, and now a grandmother, has been an honor to witness and I am so proud to call you my wife..."

The post had come years before the pair celebrated their 60th birthdays in grand style, according to a story by People.

 

The site had revealed that Magic, real name Earvin Johnson Jr., had uploaded several photos and videos on his Instagram Stories that highlighted he and Cookie's weekend getaway in St. Tropez, France.

The couple had also been joined by their children, EJ and Elisa, who hit up Nikki Beach where they danced to old school hits such as Bell Biv DeVoe's "Poison" as they sipped on white wine.

Others who were in attendance included director Spike Lee, Chris Tucker, Courtney B. Vance, and his wife, Angela Bassett and Boris Kodjoe and his wife, Nicole Ari Parker.

The Johnson family sure had a lot to be thankful for as their daughter had escaped a horrifying incident back in 2018. As at the time of the occurrence, People divulged that Elisa had been enjoying her time at an Airbnb when two armed men entered the home.

The men had proceeded to terrorize the ten guests at the Airbnb as they held them at gunpoint. Luckily, Elisa, who was in one of the bedrooms at the time, escaped through a sliding glass door before she ran down the street to protection.
