Shaq & Kids Hit The #FamilyDanceChallenge After Son Shareef Commits To UCLA + Russell Wilson Is The Perfect Zaddy At Yankees Training Camp


Shaq and his family got in party mode after his son Shareef O’Neal decided to commit to UCLA. Get into their #FamilyDanceChallenge, plus spend the day with Russell Wilson at the Yankees’ training camp - mainly because he brought baby Sienna and Future Zahir along...

Big news for the O’Neal Family!

Shaq’s eldest son, Shareef O’Neal, is heading off the college. And he’ll be taking his basketball talents to UCLA.

The 6'9", 205-pound playmaker made the decision after decommitting from Arizona amid reports that the Wildcats are at the center of an FBI investigation into alleged corruption in college basketball.

The 4-star prospect will now be closer to mom and dad in LA, which we’re sure they’re both super happy about. According to 247Sports, Shareef is the No. 33 overall player, No. 9 power forward and No. 4 player from the state of California in the class of 2018.

"HEADING TO UCLA I know my mom is glad I’m staying home LOL," Shareef captioned.

His dad, who was inducted in the Basketball Hall of Fame two years ago, is super excited about his son’s next chapter in life.

“My baby @shareefoneal decided he’s gonna be a Bruin me and your mom @shaunieoneal5 are proud of you dude. This is the first of many steps to fulfill your dreams. #prouddad,” the former LA Laker posted on Instagram.

Shareef's mother, Shaunie O'Neal, was equally excited and proud, writing, "I’m so proud of my baby!"

Congrats Shareef!

To celebrate Shareef's good news, the family got together to bust some moves for the #FamilyDanceChallenge. Shaq had some fun dancing it up with kids before challenging Kevin Hart, LeBron James, Will Smith, Diddy and more to battle it out.

Fun times.

Speaking of families...

Seattle Seahawks QB rounded up his whole family -- wife Ciara, daughter Sienna and step son Future Wilburn --  to travel with him to Tampa with him for some baseball fun.

The Super Bowl winning QB set out to live out his dream as player for the New York Yankees. He reported to the team's Spring training camp this week to show off his skills. And he's not too shabby being he played baseball in high school, college and in a minor league.


“Ever since I was a young kid I always dreamed of being a Yankee. I always watched them. My favorite player was Derek Jeter,” the NFLer told the media following his workout.

The 29-year-old gave up baseball in June 2011 after hitting .229 with 118 strikeouts in 315 at-bats, then played his fifth-year senior season of football at Wisconsin, according to reports.

No, he will not hit the field in any spring-training games this week with the Yankees. The Seahawks aren't risking their QB getting hurt.

“I’m ready to go up there, if they want me to,” Russell teased. “I’m ready to hack away.”

He was in Zaddy (no typo) mode too. He brought his and wife Ciara's kiddies Sienna and Future Zahir along. And they're ADORBS.
