Shaquille O'Neal's ex-wife, Shaunie O'Neal, gets showered with love and appreciation from her kids as she celebrates Mother's Day.
The love between a mother and her kids is extraordinary, and this makes the Mother's Day worth celebrating every year.
Shaunie felt this love on Mother's Day as her kids took to Instagram to pay tributes to their amazing mom. They thanked her for her part in their lives and celebrated her as their mom.
The mother of five also celebrated herself. She took to Instagram to share a fantastic picture of her surrounded by all five of her kids.
The messages from her girls were very touching, but one stood out, and it was from Me'arah who sees her as the coolest person ever. The youngster shared a picture of her with her mom and sister alongside the tribute. Her post caption read:
"...Thank you for everything... love ya goat ❤️?No ones cooler than you, and they never will be"
NBA star Shaquille O'Neal fathered four of Shaunie's kids while they were still together. The couple tied the knot on the 22nd of December, 2002, in Beverly Hills, California. The marriage turned sour, and Shaq ended up filing for a divorce in 2007.
Shaunie rose to fame back in 2010 when she starred in "Basketball Wives," which she created.
They got back together afterward, but the reunion was short-lived as Shaunie filed for divorce in 2010.
The relationship between the two was not so great at first after the divorce, but things are now better, and they are co-parents. Shaunie revealed this back in 2018:
"We're great now, but it took a long time like we did not have the relationship that we have now the first few years."
It is not clear whether or not Shaunie has moved on since her marriage ended, but Shaquille has been in a couple of relationships and is currently dating actress Annie Ilonzeh.
Shaunie O'Neal was born in 1975 in Wichita Falls, Texas. She started dating NBA star Shaquille O'Neal back in 1998. The mom of five rose to fame back in 2010 when she starred in "Basketball Wives," which she created.
The reality TV star is the executive producer of the show and still stars on it along with a spin-off of her and her family "Shaunie's Home Court."
