Garcelle Beauvais and her three boys (Oliver Saunders and Jaid and Jax Nilon) attended the Los Angeles Lakers versus the Miami Heat basketball game at the Staples Center on Christmas Day.
The gang had a little rivalry going on during the game. Gabrielle and her oldest son Oliver sported LA Lakers shirts, while the two youngest boys donned Miami Heat jerseys.
Jax and Jaid are Garcelle’s twin boys with ex-husband Mike Nilon. The actress recently spoke out about her new book, I Am Mixed, about her kids’ biracial roots, as well as her own heritage.
“In Haiti, everybody looked like me, so I wasn’t used to being seen as different. Seeing how people [in Massachusetts] reacted to my skin colour and the tightness of my curls – because I didn’t have a relaxer then [laughs] – was strange to me.
“So with my boys, even though we live in a big city and I knew they wouldn’t get harassed very much about having a black mum and white dad, I still really wanted to be able to have that conversation with them [about cultural heritage], so it wasn’t an issue for them.”
