As mentioned, the couple started dating as teenagers in high school. They They’ve since welcomed three children (Bronny, Bryce and Zhuri) and been solid as LeBron’s star rose to iconic levels in pop culture. In an interview with ESSENCE years ago, Savannah talked about the role she’s played in his success.

“I’m his support system with whatever he needs. If he needs someone to listen to him. If he needs to talk or if he says, “Hey babe, I’m tired. Can I take a nap?” I will say “Yeah, baby. Take a nap,” and keep the kids occupied. It’s a part of the role that I play as the mother of his kids and being his wife. The balance that I create in our house is for his success. He is very busy and I understand that, and the kids are at the age now that they get it. Being there for him is a huge part of his success.”

He also has spoken openly, both in interviews and on social media, about his love and appreciation for Savannah.

“We have been down since high school,” he told the Hollywood Reporter in 2018. “I listen to a lot of rap music, and a good friend of mine said, ‘You wasn’t me with me shooting in the gym.’ But in all actuality, Savannah was with me shooting in the gym when I [had] absolutely nothing.”

He added, “[Savannah] was down when I was at my high school, no cameras, no lights. And she was there with me. You wouldn’t be talking to me right now if it weren’t for her.”

It wasn’t the easiest of beginning but look at them now! Check out some of our favorite photos of the happy couple (and as a bonus, a few with their kids) from over the years.
