Jax and Jaid celebrate five years of fun living with mom, Garcelle Beauvais, at the park. Garcelle along with family and friends had a birthday party in the twins’ honor which consisted of potato sack races and an inflatable bouncer. Jax and Jaid turned five on a school day (October 18, 2012), so they celebrated with classmates in breaking cake together. The weekend’s celebration was sort of an after party to the festivities that took place on the Kindergarteners’ birthdays.
Garcelle recently expressed what a day of R&R is like with the twins. “The kids don’t have to go to school, so they come into my bed until it gets a little too rough and then I want outta there. We’ll have breakfast and then we get in the pool. Sometimes we’re in the pool at 8:30 a.m.! And then just having a really great day with no ‘have to’s.’ We don’t have to go to a birthday party, we don’t have to go to karate. We’re so scheduled these days that we just forget to sometimes stay in our pajamas and do nothing. We need downtime,” explained the actress.
Jax and Jaid are Garcelle and ex-husband Mike Nilon’s only children together. Garcelle also has a son named Oliver by ex-husband Daniel Saunders.
