It’s all about glamor as the O’Neals show off their elegant style in this year’s Christmas family photo. Shaunie strikes an amazing pose in the middle of the stairway as her five children- Shareef, Amirah, Shaqir, Me’arah, and Myles-surround her in formal wear. The oldest boys decide to take a seat under mom sporting classy red scarves and sweaters, while the girls and youngest boy stand in fashion position above and next to Shaunie wearing black and grey.

The ‘Basketball Wives’ producer and her kids spent the eve of Christmas with the underprivileged citizens of Los Angeles. The former basketball wife took her kids to a charity event on Skid Row hoping to spread love and joy among the area’s 18,000 residents telling Twitter fans, “Heading out to the @TheLAMission with the kids in a few… Serving food to the homeless at @TheLAMission with Harrison Ford #SkidRowChristmas.”

Shaq was previously spotted taking his kids to visit Santa Claus at the Grove prior to Christmas Day. Shaunie and the former NBA star have four children together. Shaunie has five kids in all.

  1. This is a nice photo that could have been AMAZING if the positioning of the children were different. The photo comes across a bit cold with no connection to the Mom. In my opinion I think the Mom should be holding the hand of the one of children and another one standing directly in front of her one step below, etc. More like the family photos we see with the Obamas….not to say or compare this photo to the Obamas, but just the example of the close knit loving family. Nonetheless, this family is beautiful and Shaunie is killing it! I do love the attire especially those of the boys.

  2. They look utterly unhappy taking this shot. I wonder how many and how long it took. I don’t Xmas portraits at all. Though, Shaunie looks great here.

  3. Shaunie is beautiful!

    I think it’s an ok photo…kinda random compared to the Bosh’s and the Bryant Christmas photos.

  4. Wow I remember when these kids were born. Shaunie has a very nice family. Looking forward to basketball wives less the drama.

    • do you realize when you write X-Mas your basically X’n Christ out of Christmas which is extremely disrespectful… for future purposes, would appreciate if you would consider spelling the entire word out… THanKS!

      • It’s perfectly fine to use Xmas or Christmas. If you feel strongly one way or the other feel free to act on that, but don’t impose your opinions on others. That’s disrespectful.

          • From Wikipedia- “Xmas is a common abbreviation of the word Christmas . It is sometimes pronounced /ˈɛksməs/, but it, and variants such as Xtemass, originated as handwriting abbreviations for the typical pronunciation /ˈkrɪsməs/. The “-mas” part is from the Latin-derived Old English word for Mass.

            The “X” comes from the Greek letter Chi, which is the first letter of the Greek word Χριστός, translated as “Christ”.[2]

            There is a common misconception that the word Xmas stems from a secular attempt to remove the religious tradition from Christmas[3] by taking the “Christ” out of “Christmas”.”

            The “X” is Xmas stands for Christ! So, happy belated Xmas to everyone!!

      • “for future purposes, would appreciate if you would consider spelling the entire word out… THanKS!” Arrogant much? You have a right to an opinion but the person who made the comment doesn’t owe you and your belief anything. You do realise that not everyone is religious and that we don’t all share the same views right? Remember that the next time you get but hurt and harpooning someone’s comment over something so trivial.

        P.S. “X” still translates as Christ. Do your research.

      • I’m just now seeing this. I can write the crap any way I damn well please. Did you ever stop to think that maybe, just maybe I wasn’t a Christian? Lol. Well, I’m not. Have a wonderful 2013. Peace and Happiness to you!!! ≧◠◡◠≦✌

  5. Why did they even bother taking a family portrait if no one wanted to smile for the camera? They look so sour..

    • Just because your taking a picture doesn’t mean you have to smile. It was a Christmas photoshoot, Im sure they took more than one pic, which im more than sure they smiled on several of them…HappY new YEAR!
