Shaq Barrett has vowed to give wife Jordanna an ‘amazing and memorable’ Mother’s Day in a poignant social media post just weeks after the death of their two-year-old daughter.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers player and his wife lost their daughter Arrayah at the end of April when she drowned in a swimming pool in a tragic accident.
Taking to Instagram on Sunday, Barrett wrote: ‘Happy Mother’s day beautiful. We all love you so much and will do our best to make your day amazing and memorable.’
Earlier this week, Barrett opened up on the passing of his daughter, writing alongside a clip of her: ‘I miss you sooo much baby girl. I love you please watch over us.’
Police responded to a call of a child who had fallen into a pool at around 9.30am on Sunday, April 30 in Tampa’s Beach Park area, according to Tampa Police Department.
