Success hit different when you have someone to share it with and no one knows this better than LeBron James, who recently took the opportunity to show his wife, Savannah, some major love on the 'Gram and gave us all the feels. In an intimate and cute AF Instagram post last week, the basketball player wrote:
"The only reason why I can do what I do at the highest level both on and off the floor is my because my best friend got my back regardless the outcome! I'm just the car, she's the engine! Appreciate you Wonder Woman aka Queen."
The couple, who met in high school and shared their first date at an Outback Steakhouse, have been together for two decades and now share three children. In an interview with Harper's Bazaar, Savannah revealed that although she wasn't initially attracted to her now-husband, eventually, she couldn't help but be enchanted by his charm:
"I knew he loved me when I left my leftovers from dinner in his car. I'd totally forgotten about them, and he brought them to me. I think he just wanted another excuse to come and see me."
LeBron, who proposed to his wife of six years during an intimate dinner with family and friends in 2011, told Oprah that spending the rest of his life with Savannah was never an option because he never imagined any other version of the future without her:
"It felt like a Finals game. I had been thinking about it, you know, for a while but it just came to me one day and I was like, 'this is a part of growth for me.' I was like, 'this is the lady and the woman I have been with through all the good and all the bad.' She's been there for a long time, and I wanted her to continue to be there with me, so I felt like at that moment it was time."
While these two manage to stay off the radar and have done well at keeping their private life out of the public eye, their very rare PDA has us feeling like if your man don't love you like LeBron loves Savannah, you need a new man. From having Beyonce and Jay-Z perform at their wedding and gifting her with a Ferrari, to having Daniel Caesar serenade her in the comfort of their living room for their 5th wedding anniversary, Savannah and LeBron exemplify TF out of Black love and we are here for absolutely all of it.
We stan for a beautiful display of melanin matrimony and LeBron and Savannah's love story in pictures is probably the best thing you'll see all day.
