Jasmine Jordan, the daughter of basketball legend Michael Jordan and his ex-wife, Juanita Vanoy, took to Instagram to share an adorable photo of her baby son.
Jasmine Jordan is basking in the joy of motherhood, and recently shared a cute picture of her son, baby Rakeem, flaunting his lovely curly hair. The adorable baby sat, facing sideways. She captioned the post thus:
"Mama's Boy [emoji]."
"Does he look like his Grandpa?"
Jasmine and Rakeem confirmed the birth of their child via posts on Instagram on Mother's Day. The proud mother shared a picture of her newborn son tugging her fingers, in a post in May.
Jasmine is also carving a name for herself in the world of business and sports management.
The picture also showed the tattoo of the number "25" on Jasmine's hand, signifying the jersey number her boyfriend wore when he was playing for the Syracuse University basketball team.
In the caption to her post, Jasmine wrote, "Just In Time. I Love You Son." She also added the hashtag, "1st Mothers Day," to the post. Rakeem Christmas also confirmed his son's birth on his Instagram page.
Jasmine met Rakeem while she was a student at Syracuse University. While he was a star for the school's basketball team, she was studying sports management.
The pair struck a bond, which culminated in a beautiful relationship and is now blessed with an adorable son. Jasmine and Rakeem also got engaged in 2018.
While Jasmine is not as famous as her father, she is also carving a name for herself in the world of business and sports management. She works as an executive and field representative for the "Nike Jordan" brand.
In that role, the 27-year-old has helped in the designs, colorways, and direction of one of the brand's collections, the "Jordan Heiress Collection," which was launched in 2018.
She also works with the Charlotte Hornets, her father's basketball franchise, where she represents some of the players via the "Nike Jordan Brand." Despite this, she keeps a low profile, just like her father does.
In an interview with "Instyle," Jasmine attributed that part of her to how she was raised by her mother, who made her not to take life for granted.
