Derrick “PJ” Rose Jr., the son of NBA star Derrick Rose and his ex Mieka Reese, celebrated his 8th birthday on October 9. The following day, PJ’s proud parents threw him an awesome birthday party in celebration.
PJ’s birthday party was a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air themed party, complete with themed graffiti, murals of PJ with his parents, plenty of balloons, cupcakes, decorative spray-paint cans with PJ Rose’s name on them, and a DJ. As the birthday boy, PJ was the “Fresh Prince of Chi-town” and he made his entrance with a taxi and even had a throne to sit on.
PJ Rose enjoyed his party with his parents, friends, and his half-siblings, 2-year-old Layla and 1-year-old London Rose, who Derrick had with his wife Alaina Anderson. Mieka Reese took to Instagram to post pictures and videos of PJ’s party. She captioned the post: “He make me so happy & proud everyday😊so if my baby wanna go outta space, ima find us a spaceship 🚀🛸lol that’s how we rockn @impjrose 🤴🏾🚖📟🪀📺💗8️⃣.”
PJ Rose also posted a few pictures from his party on his own Instagram, captioning the post: “The Fresh Prince of the Chi🤴🏾🚖📟💥.”
PJ wasn’t the only Rose celebrating a birthday in October; his father also celebrated his 32nd birthday on October 4. Derrick celebrated his special day on a beautiful white sand beach, posting pictures on Instagram. He captioned the post with an inspirational message to his fans, thanking them for the birthday wishes.
“Please don’t idolize me. I’m not your typical hooper/celeb or whatever you want to call it. Find out who you are, master something, and find a way to express whatever you’ve mastered,” wrote Rose. “It’s all about your perception. Once you do that I SWEAR it’s easier to see this game everyone is playing. Don’t be apart of the magic show. Look away! Spurious love please pls stay away!!!! Thanks for all the Gday wishes. Stay blessed King & Queens.”
