Who is LeBron James’ wife, Savannah?

LeBron James and his wife, Savannah James, got married in San Diego, California, on September 14, 2013.

However, the couple – who hails from Akron, Ohio – have been together since high school.

Savannah told Cleveland Magazine in a 2017 interview that she and LeBron first met when she was a 16-year-old high school sophomore and LeBron was a junior at a rival school.

Today, Savannah is the head of the James household, which means managing the lives of the couple’s three kids due to LeBron’s busy basketball schedule.

“I’m gone a lot, so she is the boss of the household; she’s the rule-setter,” he told Vogue. “It’s hard for me to go on the road for two and half weeks and then come home and tell my kids, ‘Look, this is how it should be done,’ when she’s been home every day.”

Outside the house, Savannah is a businesswoman, entrepreneur, and mentor.

She used to run a juicery in the Brickell neighborhood of Miami during LeBron’s tenure with the Miami Heat and then the couple launched their own furniture line with American Signature called Home Court by LeBron James.

In 2017, Savannah started her mentorship program Women of Our Future, which provides one-on-one counseling and support for young girls in her hometown.

Who are Savannah James’ parents and siblings?

Savannah was born Savannah Brinson to father, JK Brinson, who retired from Akron Paint & Varnish Engineered Coatings, and mother, Jennifer, a nurse.

The Ohio native grew up with four other siblings.

Savannah told Cleveland Magazine that her parents always had an open-door policy with their children’s friends.

“If they had something going on at home, or they just needed a safe haven, my mom and dad always opened up their doors,” she shared.

How many children do LeBron and Savannah James have?

LeBron and Savannah share three children together: LeBron ‘Bronny’ James Jr., Bryce Maximus, and Zhuri Nova.

The pair welcomed their first son, Bronny, during Savannah’s senior year – LeBron’s rookie year in the NBA – on October 6, 2004.

Now, at 18 years old, the skilled basketball player takes after his father and could play in the NBA as early as the 2024-2025 season.

LeBron and Savannah’s second child, Bryce, was born on June 14, 2007, while their third and only daughter, Zhuri Nova, was welcomed on October 22, 2014.
