The NBA MVP, 28, posted photos Wednesday to Instagram of himself and his bride kissing while dining at Rome’s Antica Pesa, along with a loving note about his high-school sweetheart and mother of his two children.
“When u have someone that’s always there for you no matter the ups and downs in life, it makes it all worth living for! So happy to call u Mrs. Savannah James #MyQueen #Backbone #QueenJames #Honeymoon,” he wrote.
While the couple are honeymooning in Rome, they’ve also been photographed touring the Coliseum on Wednesday.
