La La Anthony recently posted photos of herself reuniting with her estranged husband Carmelo on Instagram.
The Power actress shared multiple photos of her, Carmelo, and their son Kiyan on her personal Instagram page Christmas Day. In the first photo of the Instagram slideshow, La La’s 9.8 million followers were able to see the three family members wearing red-and-white striped pajamas. For the shot, the trio made silly faces for the camera, although Carmelo subtly hid behind Kiyan, so the NBA great’s face wasn’t fully visible. Carmelo also has his arm around his son as La La leaned in close for the photo op.
In the second photo, the family of three decided to pose with a more traditional smile. Both La La and Kiyan had one hand on their heads. Kiyan showed off his pearly white teeth for the actress’s followers, while La La opted for a closed-mouthed smile. Carmelo was behind his son once again and gave the camera a small smile of his own.
In her caption, La La shared that she and Carmelo are “grateful souls” for their son. The television personality also shared that she was spending the holidays with “one happy kid,” and wished her followers a Merry Christmas.
A similar photo of the trio was also posted to Carmelo’s personal Instagram. The basketball player captioned his own post “Family, The Anthonys.”
Fans of La La’s almost instantly responded to the actress’s touching post. Her Christmas upload received more than 500,000 likes and over 4,000 comments.
“This is LOVE,” one follower wrote.
“Merry Christmas mama!!!!! So beautiful!!” another fan exclaimed.
“This makes me happy. I love you guys,” expressed a third social media user.
“Love you and your family,” a fourth fan chimed in.
According to Hollywood Life, fans of La La weren’t the only ones who were happy to see the small family reunited for the holidays. Both her and Carmelo’s posts received praise from famous friends Gabrielle Union, Khloe Kardashian, and Taraji P. Henson.
La La and Carmelo have been living separately, with reports surfacing that La La has moved forward with filing for divorce and has been spotted not wearing her wedding ring on several occasions, although they are continuing to work on their co-parenting relationship for Kiyan. Recently, the actress has been living in Chicago for her latest role in The Chi and Carmelo has moved to Oregon, as he was traded to the Portland Trailblazers.
