LeBron James and his wife Savannah are high school sweethearts. It’s hard to imagine such a humble beginning to their relationship. Especially when considering the status that LeBron has achieved as a result of his NBA career. But Savannah has been by his side the whole time. And the beautiful entrepreneur has been getting a ton of love on Twitter recently.
Why? Well, why not? A Twitter user happened to be admiring the handsome couple and decided to post a picture, calling attention to Savannah James’ beauty.
Naturally, the tweet blew up. How could it not? The two are a match made in heaven. And to think their romance started like something out of a teen drama.
LeBron James was a big deal as a high schooler in Akron, Ohio. He was a young basketball phenom, playing for St. Vincent-St. Mary High School. Across town, Savannah was staying busy cheerleading and playing softball for a rival high school. But when the two crossed paths and LeBron asked Savannah out, the stars aligned.
The couple had their first date at Outback. And considering where the two are now, it was a solid choice of restaurant. Shortly after they began dating, LeBron James was drafted to the NBA straight from high school. The two began their family in the early stages of LeBron’s basketball career and were finally married in 2013.
So now that we know the couple’s backstory, we can focus on Savannah herself. Or rather, we can look at why the internet has been adoring her as of late.
Twitter is in Awe of LeBron James and Savannah
The high school sweethearts captured the attention of the internet via the stunning photo. But without question, Savannah steals the show. Sorry, LeBron. We mean no offense. And neither does the internet. Some of it, at least.
“someone get this dude out her picture,” a Twitter user wrote, hilariously disregarding the future NBA Hall of Famer entirely.
“Love it. I rarely see her but, when I do she always looks lovely,” another added. And there’s a good reason the Twitter user rarely sees her. She’s busy raising a family. The James’ have three kids, ranging in age from 5 to 16 years old.
And the LeBron James love was out in full force as well.
“I’ve followed LeBron since he and I were going to high school—3hrs apart—before social media, just total blank canvases ahead. From enjoying to see him play and carry himself on the court, to the father and husband he is off the court, Bron continues to be an inspiration,” an apparent lifelong fan of the basketball star commented.
One thing we can all agree on is that LeBron James is an extremely lucky man.
