By  | 

Daddy’s little girl turned 3 over the weekend and proved that she has the Cleveland Cavaliers star wrapped around her little finger. LeBron James celebrated the birthday of his daughter Zhuri Nova James with flair by throwing her a decadent Moana-themed birthday party – a Disney princess theme for his princess.

Great day today for the #JamesGang as we celebrated a fifth of the pie Big Day!! #zhurinova Day #happybirthdayZ

James, 32, alongside his longtime wife, Savannah, 31, rolled out all the bells and whistles for the lavish kid affair. From giant balloons that spelled out “Happy Birthday Zhuri” to a Moana-themed decadent birthday cake to a singer dressed like Moana singing the movie’s theme song “How Far I’ll Go” – Zhuri and friends were able to indulge in a three year old’s dream.

Party guests were also able to partake in two bounce houses and were even taught how to Hula dance!

The three-time NBA champion posted snippets of his daughter’s big day on social media, including a series of special photos that were taken just for the young queen-in-training’s birthday. “Happy 3rd Birthday to my Princess Zhuri Nova aka Daddy’s lil girl aka Momma’s lil face,” he wrote in the caption. “You’re so amazing beyond years and I’m so happy every time I see your face! Daddy loves you for eternity and beyond!”

The baller and proud father also flexed his protective muscles by adding some hashtags to keep the boys away. Hashtags like #LilGuysDontEvenTryIt, #IllBeWaitingAtTheGateWithTheGuard-WithSomethingOnMyHipToo, and #ThinkItsAGameIfYouWantTo were a hilarious way to keep future suitors in check – even if they probably have to wait 13 more years or so to get their foot in the door.

Mama James also get in on the celebratory fun by posting a photo of Zhuri taking a bite out of her birthday cake and captioning it with the words, “My baby is 3!!!!”
