LeBron James has revealed the name of his daughter while on vacation in Greece with his wife Savannah. The NBA star posted a picture of the two, along with the caption, “Mykonos Greece is spectacular! Push gift to my wife@mrs_savannahrj! Zhuri hurry up and get here so your daddy and 2 brothers can annoy you! Lol.”
While an uncommon name, "Zhuri" is similar in spelling to popular baby name “Zuri,” which is of African origin and means “beautiful” in Swahili.
In June, it was revealed that the 29-year-old superstar was expecting his first baby girl. Though James didn't win a championship ring this year after his team, the Miami Heat, lost to the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals, he still has a big reason to smile.
Miami Heat President Pat Riley was first to confirm the news in an interview with the press.
“Savannah now is going to have a little baby girl to join her in the fight against the two boys and LeBron, which she needs,” he said.
Brinson was rumored to be pregnant since May. She and her husband have two sons, Bryce and LeBron Jr. It is unclear how far along she is at the moment.
The NBA star's wife fueled rumors after posting the following on Facebook in March: “Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”
A friend of Brinson's recently told the New York Post’s Page Six that she's “always wanted a little princess,” but a Heat rep at the time said she “is not pregnant.”
The couple's longtime friends Jay Z and Beyoncé were in attendance, and Beyoncé reportedly performed, as did singer Ne-Yo. Other guests included James' teammate Dwyane Wade and Wade's girlfriend, Gabrielle Union, and his coach, Erik Spoelstra.
The couple made it a three-day celebration. Page Six reported that there was a welcome barbeque for guests on Friday, the wedding ceremony and party on Saturday, and a farewell brunch on Sunday.
James proposed to Brinson at a New Year’s Eve party in 2012.
