"Julius and our son Kyden, 4, cozied up on the plane as we were about to take off from New York City, where Julius plays for the New York Knicks, to Atlanta. We were so excited to get there and start the experience. It was sort of our 'it's all happening' moment before Julius' first All-Star game."

"We landed in Atlanta! We were hoping to get a family photo before taking off from N.Y.C. but it was so cold and windy. The weather in Georgia was perfect. I've been super busy with my fashion startup Kalore and with Julius' busy NBA schedule, it was great to experience this together as a family."

"Kyden was posing right before we left for the All-Star Game on Sunday. Kyden had been begging to leave the hotel room all day but due to NBA COVID-19 safety protocols, this was really the only time we could leave our room. Needless to say, he was ready to go!"
