LeBron James has a little princess in his daughter, Zhuri Nova James.

In addition to being a father to sons LeBron "Bronny" James Jr. and Bryce Maximus, LeBron welcomed his daughter Zhuri in 2014 with his high school sweetheart, Savannah James.

"My daughter is the greatest thing in my life, along with my boys," LeBron told Access Hollywood in 2021. "So, whenever she smiles, it don't matter what I'm doing, it makes me happy."

Like her father, Zhuri is no stranger to the spotlight. She’s attended the ESPY Awards, accompanied LeBron to the premiere of his 2021 movie Space Jam: A New Legacy and appeared in a 2023 Beats by Dre campaign with her family.

LeBron’s daughter was in the crowd when he became the first NBA player to reach 40,000 career points.

Following the game in 2024, the Lakers star spoke about hitting the record-breaking milestone and looking at his wife, mom and daughter, who was clapping and “pumping her arms up in the air.”

"Blew her a kiss, she blew one back to me,” he said of Zhuri. “So, it's super cool, for sure. She's the best. Definitely a girl dad and happy she's a part of the family. She runs everything. So, what Z says goes in our household for sure."

She’s athletic like her dad

LeBron isn’t the only sporty member of the James family — the proud dad has posted videos of his little girl playing volleyball. In 2023, the NBA champion could be heard cheering on Zhuri, shouting in one video: "Let's go munchkin!"

“Another One in the making! Uh-Oh 😱!!” LeBron captioned the carousel of videos. “Let’s Gooooooo Munchin!! @allthingszhuri got NEXT!! 🏐 VIBES!! #JamesGang👑 #ZTheWarriorPrincess👸🏾.”

“I think LeBron James is the baddest motherf-----,” Savannah said, before Zhuri interjected saying, "Mom!" and adorably shook her head.
