For any parent, sending off their child to college for the first time is difficult in itself as they have to let go to let their kid grow.

Shaunie O’Neal had it harder as she sent off two of her kids, Amirah and Shareef, to Louisiana State University amid the pandemic.

COLLEGE SEND OFF

The NBA star’s wife compiled a few clips of the days leading up to her children’s college move and posted it on Instagram alongside a lengthy caption. She wrote:

“To drop them off in the middle of a pandemic was nerve wrecking [sic]. I had so many people sending me tips on how to get through this initial period, and I appreciate my village of family and friends.”

The minute-and-a-half clip included snippets of the kids buying house supplies, moving in, and saying their goodbyes.

MESSAGE TO AMIRAH AND SHAREEF

Shaunie put her faith in God to guide both her kids as they start a new chapter in their lives. She noted that together with Shaquille O’Neal, they have raised Amirah and Shareef well and prepared them for that day.

Standing at six-foot-two, she has been selected as an All-Division Three Second Team.

The proud mom ended her post by wishing her son and daughter well in their endeavor. “Mommy will always be here for you, and I am beyond proud of both of you,” she added.

THE O’NEAL FAMILY

Shaq and Shaunie share four children together, Shareef, Amirah, Shaquir, and Me’arah. However, they also had children from previous relationships.

The former athlete has a daughter, Taahira, from his ex-girlfriend, Arnetta Yardbourgh, while Shaunie has a son, Myles.

Sadly, Shaq and Shaunie’s relationship also ended in divorce but they continue to co-parent their children and maintain a great relationship.
