The adorable tot was dressed in a cute printed blue onesie, and he was seen watching the television, which was showing an intriguing kid’s show. He was also surrounded by colorful toys.

On May 5, just a week before the cute clip was posted, Jasmine and Rakeem took to Instagram to celebrate their son’s first birthday.

The birthday boy’s parents had shared the same sweet cartoon depiction of their son, which featured a cartoon rendition of him sitting inside a Nike sneaker and expressed how much they adored him with adorable captions.

Christmas and Jordan first revealed that they were engaged in 2018.

In May 2019, the proud parents welcomed their first son together. The little boy was born into athletic greatness, being the grandson of the legendary pro basketball player, Michael Jordan, and the son of another great basketball player, Christmas.

Rakeem was so excited to be a father that he took to Instagram to share the good news of his son’s birth, which was coincidentally close to Mother’s day. Captioning his post, the twenty-eight-year-old athlete wrote:

“I don’t know what I did to deserve you and our awesome kid, Happy 1st Mothers Day!”

Rakeem’s post was a photo of their baby boy’s hand wrapped around Jasmine’s finger. She also took to Instagram to celebrate her son’s arrival.

Michael Jordan, who is often referred to as one of the greatest basketball players of all time, became a grandfather at the age of fifty-six.

Christmas and Jordan first revealed that they were engaged in 2018. Jasmine posted a series of pictures on her Twitter account, showing the exact moment that Rakem popped the question.

The pair first met while attending Syracuse University together, where Jasmine studied Sports Management, and Christmas was on the school’s team.

Being the daughter of the legendary athlete definitely had its perks, but Jasmine admitted that finding true relationships made the experience worthwhile. She and her adorable family of three seem to be very happy together.
