LeBron James' mom Gloria James celebrated her son with adorable Instagram photos showing the pro basketballer chilling with his family.


Like many public figures, Gloria James, mother of pro basketball player LeBron James, took the Father's Day festivity to social media.

The 53-year-old shared a series of pictures on Instagram in honor of her son. Some of the pictures showed the Lakers player posing with his family, comprising of his wife, Savannah Brinson, and their three kids.

The squad looked alike in the pictures as they rocked adorable smiles and heartwarming poses. In another shot, they were joined by LeBron's mom, completing the perfect family.

Via the caption, Gloria celebrated her son, referring to him as her greatest blessing from God. She went on to gush about how proud she was of him. She wrote:

"I am so proud of the man you are and the father you've been to Bronny, Bryce, and Zhuri. Happy Father's Day son. Love, Your Momma."


Fans immediately joined the outpouring of love, extending Father's Day wishes to the NBA legend while proclaiming their admiration for his court aesthetics.

LeBron shares his three children, Bronny, Brice, and Zhuri, with his wife and high school sweetheart, Savannah. Through the years, the duo has strived to bring up the children into responsible adults.

LeBron revealed his reasons for never bringing his kids to visit the NBA quarantine campus despite missing them dearly.


Thankfully, they have Gloria's help to see them through the difficult times. Coming from humble beginnings, LeBron's mom, who birthed him at sixteen, knew the importance of instilling discipline in the kids, especially in the aspect of managing finances.

She passed that trait on to her son, who has adopted several methods to enable his kids to learn financial accountability. One such method was denying them some luxuries which he could easily afford. He once noted:

"They will never understand that there is a bottom, and that's the challenge that I have to juggle with[...]."


In the end, the icon's children have come to understand what it felt like to live like ordinary people. Another approach he has adopted is keeping them out of the spotlight as much as possible.

Last year, LeBron revealed his reasons for never bringing his kids to visit the NBA quarantine campus despite missing them dearly. He pointed out they had nothing to do at the campus as it was no kid-friendly place and they were better off in Los Angeles, where they could put their time to good use.

Going by LeBron's parenting principles, his kids are certainly priming up to become exemplary adults. Of course, he owes the credit to Gloria, who single-handedly instilled the culture in him as a teenage mom.
