Magic Johnson's oldest son Andre recently turned 40, and the proud dad took to Instagram sharing an adorable photo of three generations of men in his family.

Cookie accompanied the pictures with a caption describing Andre as a great father and man of God. She concluded the caption with a prayer and an expression of love for him.
Though Andre grew up with his mom, the 40-year-old has a strong bond with his father.
Andre also took time to celebrate himself with a heartwarming post that captured him having fun moments with his famous family. He accompanied the pictures with a caption reading:
"40 years feels like a blessing ??."
The lovely post garnered reactions from fans and followers who took to the comments section to share their birthday wishes and prayers for Andre and his family.
Magic welcomed his first son in 1981 during a relationship with his then-girlfriend Melissa Mitchell. Despite having a famous dad, Andre managed to maintain a low-key life away from the spotlight.
Though Andre grew up with his mom, the 40-year-old has a strong bond with his father, and the two have been seen hanging out several times in the past.
In 2016, Andre made headlines after he was spotted flexing his toned physique while hanging out with his father at the beach during a family vacation in Hawaii.
In addition to Andre, Magic is also a father to Elisa Johnson and son Earvin Johnson III. Together with his wife, the NBA star has raised a great family.
Despite his successful career in the NBA, time and time again, Magic has proved himself to be a dedicated family man. His wife and kids are indeed lucky to have him!
