Savannah James Dishes On Her Children In ‘Vanity Fair’ Interview

“Excuse my language, but we a dope family.”

Celebrity News

They say behind every great man is a great woman and Savannah James is the perfect example. While she is known as the wife of NBA superstar LeBron James, she is also the backbone of their family. The high school sweethearts share three children together, Bronny, 17, Bryce, 15, and Zhuri, 7. Their Vanity Fair Oct 2022 spread showed the Jameses glammed up in their home with many photos showing them wearing matching outfits which sent social media into a tizzy.

To Savannah and Zhuri looking fabulous poolside to their whole family including Savannah’s parents and LeBron’s mom rocking matching PJs in what appeared to be their outdoor living space, the James family ain’t one to play with when it comes to style. In fact, every time the Women of Our Future mentorship program founder or Zhuri posts their latest fashions or hairstyles on social media, fans eat it up.

In the past, the 36-year-old entrepreneur has said that she isn’t keen on being in the spotlight, however, her kids seem to be following in their famous dad’s footsteps.

“With LeBron being their dad, it’s just automatic,” she told Vanity Fair. “It’s not something we’ve pushed or told them that they had to do, or anything like that. It just happened.”

And as a mother, she seems to be encouraging her children’s gifts as each one has been gaining popularity for different reasons.

“Everything isn’t for everybody,” she said. “Excuse my language, but we a dope family.”

Below are a few reasons why the James kids are dope indeed.

Bronny James

Bronny James, who will be turning 18 in October, plays for Sierra Canyon, which has become a popular basketball destination for high schoolers. LeBron has said many times in the press that he wants to be able to play with his son in the NBA and according to Savannah, Bronny is “getting to a place to start to make decisions about his career and where he wants to go in his life.” The teenager hasn’t committed to playing for a college just yet but when it does there’s bound to be pandemonium.

Bryce James

While Bryce James is also expected to continue on the path to basketball, Savannah revealed that he is “the mystery of the family.” But if King James has it his way, he may play with both sons in the league. The Lakers star alluded to wanting to play with Bryce, who is also on the Sierra Canyon basketball team, in an interview with Sports Illustrated. "I feel like I could play for quite a while. So it's all up to my body, but more importantly, my mind. If my mind can stay sharp and fresh and motivated, then the sky's not even a limit for me. I can go beyond that. But we shall see," he said.

Zhuri James

At just 7 years old, Zhuri James has garnered 400k followers on Instagram with her page @allthingszhuri. Her page features adorable photos with her family as well as beauty, art, and cooking posts. She also has a YouTube channel with the same name that shows her engaging in fun activities such as baking, potting plants, and doing yoga. Her video with Savannah showing viewers how to wear different natural hairstyles has almost one million views.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.

How Each Of The Zodiac Signs Get Over A Break-Up

Have you ever wondered how some people tend to get over breakups easily, and others have more of a difficult time? The zodiac signs are always telling a story, and the story of love is written in the stars. Some signs naturally follow their emotions more and live by the heart. Others signs focus on balancing their head with their heart and can rationalize this type of change in their life, such as a breakup. People get over breakups in their own way and in their own time, but wouldn’t it be nice to understand more about how you process this experience yourself, or how someone you know or have been involved with gets over a breakup?

'Abbott Elementary' Proves That TV Can Build Community

The first time I thought about how art could be a form of community building was with HBO’s Insecure. The dearly departed comedy series created and starring Issa Rae provided audiences with more than just weekly laughs over the course of five years, but it also created space for other Black artists and entrepreneurs to thrive-- from all the Black businesses that the show has collaborated with to the Black music artists that the show has put audiences onto. It even created opportunities within entertainment journalism for many up and coming Black journalists who got their start by reviewing the show or hosting after shows unpacking the mess that went on in the episode.
