She posted sweet photos and videos of her daughters Amirah's high school graduation and Me' arah's 8th-grade graduation and wrote:

"...we found creative ways to celebrate some of the most important days of our lives. Congratulations to @amirahoneal_ on graduating high school, and now off to college!"

The photo featured Amirah in a white tee cradling a large purple balloon that read "LSU BOUND," showing that her next stop after high school is LSU.

Shaunie concluded her caption by thanking everyone who came out to celebrate her daughter in a drive-by graduation celebration.

In another post, she shared footage of the aforementioned drive-by celebration showing Amirah all dressed up with her family standing in front of their house while her friends and distant family members drove by in their cars with balloons and high spirits.

Shaunie also congratulated her younger daughter, Me' arah, for graduating into high school. Another post showed the mom with her kids and some relatives and more photos of the celebration. Shaunie's fans and followers joined her in celebrating.

Shaunie and Shaq separated in 2011 after going back and forth trying to stay together for their kids.

The soon-to-be LSU student has found a way to carve her spot in basketball at her own level. The 6-foot-2-tall beauty played as a center at Crossroads High School in Santa Monica, California, where she averaged 17.2 points per game.

She would reportedly be setting foot in LSU, not as the first or second O'Neal but as the third. Amirah would be joining her brother, Shareef, who is also a proud Louisiana State University student, where he is also committed to The Tigers. Excited about the recent development, Amirah wrote on Instagram:

"One of the most difficult decisions for a person my age to make, is the jump from high school to college. Although I don't know what's ahead of me, I am ready for the challenge."

It was easy to see the 18-year-old's determination and zeal for the sport that she loved. Her big brother could not be more excited to celebrate her and took to Instagram as well.

Shareef and Amirah have three siblings, their younger brother, Shaqir, their youngest sibling, their sister, Me'arah, and their older half-sister, Taahira, from Shaq's previous relationship with Arnetta Yardbough. The O'Neal kids share a sweet relationship with themselves and with their parents.

Sadly, Shaunie and Shaq ended their romantic relationship when they separated in 2011. The pair had gone back and forth for a few years, trying to hold the marriage together for the sake of their children.

Shaunie and her former husband see to have moved on from the divorce and have resolved to a peaceful dynamic in co-parenting. The mom of five has continued her career as a TV star while raising her children alongside her ex.

Shaq has started dating again. He was in a two-year relationship with reality star Nicole Alexander and then spent four years in a relationship with the gorgeous model, Laticia Rolle.

His current sweetheart is "Chicago Fire" star, Annie Ilonzeh. Outside his love life, he and Shaunie share a fierce devotion to their kids.
