Currently vacationing in Greece, LeBron James let the world know the name of his unborn daughter via an Instragram caption on Friday. The newest member of the James clan will be named Zhrui.
Accompanied by a picture of LeBron and his wife Savannah, James wrote:
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.
Miami Heat president Pat Riley was the first to make James’ wife’s pregnancy publicly known, telling a group of reporters at a press conference in June.
“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.
After James left the Heat to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers this summer, ESPN’s Brian Winhorst revealed in a podcast with Grantland’s Bill Simmons that James was probably none too pleased with Riley’s announcement.
He just announced during that speech that LeBron was expecting a daughter and LeBron had gone to lengths to keep that quiet. He did not want that out there and several times he was asked about that in the media and he said ‘I’m not talking about that,’ and anybody that spent time around LeBron knew he kept that quiet.
While LeBron might have initially wanted to keep things quiet, it appears James is now comfortable being open about his soon-to-be-born daughter.
