NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal recently expressed his pride in his daughter Taahirah's move to Georgia in a lighthearted yet supportive manner. In a video shared on Taahirah's Instagram, O'Neal humorously acknowledged the financial impact of her decision, stating, "I'm so proud of you even though you got me paying two rents. I'm proud of you."

Taahirah, born in 1996 to O'Neal and ex-girlfriend Arnetta Yardbourgh, captured the family celebration on Instagram. The 27-year-old, previously residing in Texas, made the significant move to Georgia for a new chapter in her life. Known for his charismatic and humorous persona, O'Neal has often showcased his parenting style through social media.

Graduating magna cum laude, she joined PepsiCo, Inc. in a role focusing on social media marketing and communication analysis. Her recent announcement of leaving Texas for Georgia suggests a new career or personal direction.
