Surprise! Bam Adebayo Buys Mom New Home For Her Birthday After Adebayo Grew Up In A Trailer
Bam Adebayo is a NBA All-Star and All-Defense player, helping his team get to the Finals in the NBA bubble. And this Miami Heat center has his center of attention on his beloved mother.
Adebayo is a self-titled unashamed “momma’s boy” and wants the world to know who his whole world is as he gifted his mom a new home for her birthday!
Shout out to Adebayo for keeping his priorities in order and giving back to his mother who worked tirelessly for him growing up, even as Adebayo and his mother lived in this trailer:
After Adebayo and the Heat won the Eastern Conference Finals, ESPN’s Rachel Nichols noted that Bam’s mother “worked multiple jobs, didn’t have a car so she walked to those jobs, you (Bam) still keep a picture of the single-wide trailer, that you grew up in, with you”.
In that picture of where Bam used to live, that green trailer, Adebayo said: “My Imperfect/Perfect Home! The Green Trailer That Made Me Who I Am. The Sleepless Nights, The Nights I Slept Great, Through The Pain And Struggle. As Well As Through All The Great Times We Had. THANK YOU…#BounceBack#WeNotDoneYet”
The struggle was real. The grind was difficult. Yet, through it all, Adebayo put in that work and after “56 years of waiting” (as Bam mentioned), he was able to gift him mom a wonderful new home.
Adebayo in his Instagram bio has the Bible verse of Proverbs 14:23: “All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.” Adebayo worked hard and that hard work paid off in the form of a new home for his rock.
“That’s my rock, that’s my chip, that’s who I do it for, that’s my pride and joy,” Adebayo said after advancing to the NBA Finals to ESPN.
Adebayo and his “pride and joy” recently shared some special and hilarious moments during Christmas together, as well.
Behind-the scenes with Bam Adebayo and his mother during the Christmas season:
Both on and off the court, Adebayo is making an impact to help his team, his family, and his community.
Now, that’s what I call a great example for others to look up to in chasing your dreams, working extremely hard, and taking care of your family.
As Adebayo mentioned in his Twitter bio: “‘Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe’ 1 Timothy 4:12”. Adebayo is setting that example and living it out by giving back to his “rock”, his “pride and joy”, his beloved mother.
