LeBron James' mom, Gloria, had a heartwarming bonding moment with her granddaughter, Zhuri, as they posed for snaps together in a car. Zhuri is the NBA superstar's only daughter with his wife, Savannah.
LeBron James is arguably one of the greatest players in the NBA, and his fans and followers know that his biggest supporter is his mother, Gloria James, who has stood by his side throughout his phenomenal career.
Hence, it's not surprising that Gloria also has a close relationship with her son's children, Bronny, Bryce, and Zhuri James. In a recent Instagram post, the doting grandmother showed off her close bond with her youngest grandkid, Zhuri.

Gloria shared three photos of Zhuri, LeBron's only daughter, and herself hanging out in her car. In the first photo, the six-year-old could be seen sitting in the driver's seat with a big smile on her face. The post was captioned:
"Y’all, watch out! @AllThingsZhuri is trying to hit the streets in my whip."
Also in the caption, Gloria assured her fans that Zhuri was not really driving the parked car, although she continued to pose for pics on that side. In a second photo, she joined her granddaughter in the car, flashing her own big smile.
Looking casual in a white top and denim jacket, she looked content as she smiled for a third photo, this time with Zhuri sweetly hugging her with her eyes closed.
The precious photo was a testament to how much Gloria is adored by her grandchild in the same way that her son, LeBron, loves and admires her. The basketball star often sings his mother's praises whenever he has the chance.
In the past, LeBron has told heartwarming stories of how Gloria raised him as a single mom and subsequently inspired him to help other single-parent families through the LeBron James Family Foundation and others.
LeBron's foundation has had a far-reaching impact on single-parent families, including that of Toni Williams, a contributor for HuffPost, who expressed her gratitude with an article describing her day with Gloria. The powerful title read:
"At My Lowest Point In Single Parenting, LeBron James Was There."
LeBron's childhood in a single-parent household made him into the man he is today. Beyond being a great athlete and celebrity, he is a doting and present father to his three children.
As for Zhuri, he treats her like a princess. Ahead of her sixth birthday last year, the star gifted his daughter with a lavish playhouse as an early birthday present. Judging from the pictures, she was definitely thrilled with the gift.
