Jayson Tatum enjoyed a laid-back Father’s Day getaway with his little boy
As Jayson Tatum marked Father’s Day with his son, he took a relaxing trip with some great views.
The 25-year-old NBA forward posted pictures on Instagram on Sunday of him and his 5-year-old son Jayson “Deuce” Christopher having a fun day at the pool and boating in a beautiful tropical place.
They also pose together in a bunch of pictures while they’re on vacation, both on a boat and a jet ski.
Tatum wrote under the pictures, “Deuce’s dad🏽,”
Tatum had his son Deuce when he was 19. Since then, Deuce has become a big hit with the Celtics and NBA players all over the league. Deuce is shared by Tatum and his ex-girlfriend Toriah Lachell.
The NBA star had Deuce in December 2017, just six months after being picked up by the Celtics. In a press meeting in June, he talked about being a good dad and how close he is to his son.
“I think I was drafted in 2017. I didn’t have Deuce yet, but he was born that year, so that was a big one. That was the best year of my life, right?” “I just had a baby, and now I’m starting this new part of my career,” Tatum said.
“I wasn’t willing to give up either; I was going to be the best father I could be and the best basketball player I could be,” the Boston Celtics star said. “There was no exact way to do it or a rule to follow.” It was all about what made sense.
“I do what comes naturally to me.” Every day, I’m with him. I feel like we’re growing up together because we’re going through this journey together, Tatum said. “I was 19 when I got drafted.” “As he’s grown older, I’ve been going through my career. We’re sharing these moments and growing up together.” For me, that’s the coolest part.
