Shaq O'Neal recently celebrated his birthday and his children, including his oldest daughter, honored him with heartwarming tributes which they shared via their respective social media pages.
Shaq O'Neal clocked 49 last week and his kids— plus a ton of other people— took to their respective social media pages to celebrate him.
On her Instagram page, his oldest daughter Taahirah shared a video compilation of some of the times he had been caught on camera having fun with one or more of his kids.

She followed the post up with a heartwarming tribute alongside adorable pictures capturing some of their father-daughter moments. Tahirah is the product of Shaq's relationship with Arnetta Yardbourgh.
In her tribute, the proud daughter wished her dad the "happiest" birthday. Tahirah, who keeps mostly away from the spotlight, declared how much she loves her father and tagged him as her "guy" forever.
The young woman didn't stop there— she also shared photos and videos that documented herself and her team from Pepsi presenting Shaq with things he likes.
Some of the gifts included an elastic Superman toy, a small drone, and one bump box. Myles, Shaq's only stepchild— born by his ex-wife Shaunie— also expressed admiration for the "old man" in a short tribute he shared via Instagram.
The huge man is just as successful at home as he was in the game that made him famous.
His first son Shareef shared a video of himself play-wrestling with his legendary father, while Amira, his second daughter, shared a great photo of them together on her Instagram story.
Shaq's love for his kids is well known. The big man loves them all equally and considers them great kids whose mothers raised them well.
During the lockdown, the proud father had a lot of time to spend with his kids, so he quickly devised a method to keep all six of them entertained.
Many cute videos of him engaged in a variety of activities including shooting hoops and making TikTok videos with his kids have found their way to social media.
He convinced many that the huge man is just as successful at home as he was in the game that made him famous. Cheers to a new year Shaq!
