Three-time Olympic champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is in a celebratory mood as her only child, Zyon Pryce, turned six on Monday. Pushing aside any fears that having a child would slow down her career, Fraser-Pryce has embraced becoming the best mom possible and is now lovingly known as the mommy rocket.
In celebration of today’s special occasion, Fraser-Pryce and Zyon seemingly went on a mommy and son date, with Zyon all smiles for the camera in photos shared by the sprinter on her Instagram page. Zyon appeared to be thoroughly enjoying his day as Fraser-Pryce snapped a photo of the 6-year-old enthusiastically eating a slice of pizza.
The athlete went on to share a few special moments she has shared with her son, including a video of her instructing him on how to improve his sprint.
Wishing Zyon a happy birthday in the post’s caption, Fraser-Pryce expressed how grateful she was to have her son.
“I am so thankful for you, Zyon! I pray that God covers you and all the days of your life. That He will be your shield and protector. Your strong tower and prince of peace. I love you so much,” Fraser-Pryce wrote.
