Shaunie's adult sons Shaqir, Shareef and Myles stood in place of their grandfather who passed on in February.
According to People she said:
“I just lost my dad in February. So, I really struggled with how I was going to get down the aisle. Losing my dad during the planning of this wedding was a lot, so my sons handed me off.”
Celebrated gospel singer Yolanda Adams performed during the wedding that had nearly 200 invited guests.
Page Six reported the bride and groom wore a sparkling gown and veil by Jean Louis Sabajai and a cream Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo.
The newlyweds got engaged in November 2021 after nearly two years of dating.
Previously Shaunie had been married to Shaquille, 50, from 2002 to 2011.
They love him
The bride is reported saying:
“Henderson has been amazing to just step into our lives and fill a void that’s been there for a minute cause I haven’t had somebody.”
“They love him, which makes me love him even more.”
Shaq regrets divorce
On Wednesday, April 20, 2022, Legit.ng reported Shaquille opening up about what led to his divorce from his ex-wife.
The two got married in 2002, split in 2009 and were divorced in 2011. O'Neal said that his ex-wife did everything she was supposed to do but he never played his part in making the marriage work.
During a podcast interview with The Pivot Podcast, the renowned basketballer talked about his career, relationships and the top things he regrets in his life.
"I've never talked about this, and I'm glad you guys asked because I don't mind talking about this, but I was bad. She was awesome. She really was. It was all me," he said.
The 50-year-old said that he was taking the blame for their marriage ending although he declined to say what he was doing that led to him and his ex-wife and the mother of his four children ending their marriage.
"Sometimes when you live that double life, you get caught up. I'm not going to say it was her; it was all me. She did exactly what she was supposed to do and gave me beautiful kids, take care of the house, and take care of the corporate stuff. It was just all me. Sometimes, when you make a lot of mistakes like that, you can't really come back from that," further said.
