Michael Jordan's toddler grandson, Rakeem Jr., relished a sweet father-son moment with his NBA star dad, Rakeem Christmas, as the pair was photographed splashing in a pool.


NBA legend Michael Jordan's grandson, Rakeem Jr., had fans gushing after his dad, Rakeem Christmas showed a glimpse of their fun-filled father-son moment.

The photo shared on Instagram showed the adorable baby boy sporting only his diaper while his basketball star dad, Rakeem, held him up and showed a goofy expression.

While admirers expressed approval for the lovely snapshot, many agreed that Rakeem was right with his caption and they praised him for acknowledging his fatherhood. Rakeem's caption was a heartwarming and thoughtful write-up that read:

"All the material things cool and all, but what makes me happy is seeing him happy…"

The OGM player's wife, Jasmine Jordan, joined the slew of admirers as she gushed over her loved ones while sharing heart emojis.


Jasmine and Rakeem first met as students at Syracuse University. While she studied Sports Management at the citadel, Rakeem was a college basketball player. The duo struck it off and soon became an item.

Before baby Rakeem was born, his parents threw a library-inspired baby shower with splashes of the color blue.

In 2018, Jasmine, 27, announced on Twitter that she got engaged to the love of her life. She also shared images where she and her lover basked in each other's attention. She flaunted her ring to the delight of well-wishers.


Last year, the couple's first child Rakeem Michael Christmas arrived just in time for his first Mother's Day celebration, as his star mom indicated on her Instagram page.

Jasmine had posted a heart-melting photo of her and her newborn son holding hands while she professed her love in the caption. The then-new dad excitedly shared the big news on the same platform with a creative "Family Guy" animation of him and his family. 


Before baby Rakeem was born, his parents threw a library-inspired baby shower with splashes of the color blue. The expectant mom donned a flowing white one-shoulder dress while her hair was styled in dreadlocks.

Her spouse donned a checked shirt, a pair of jeans, and red shoes. Her father, Jordan made sure to be at the occasion where he took hearty photos with his daughter.


Early this year, NBA fans got to see Jordan, one of the greatest basketball players, in a whole new light. ESPN's "The Last Dance" gave fans an unfiltered look into his life.

Besides basketball, Jordan is famous for his private lifestyle and his daughter confirmed it in an interview. Jasmine made it known that while growing, her dad made sure she and her siblings had normal childhoods away from the spotlight.
