Hendrix was wearing all snowy, and many other celebrities and sports people commented on the post to wish him a happy birthday. Former American soccer player Leslie Marie Osborne could not believe that Hendrix was already two years old and completely unaware of how quickly he had developed.

"How has it been two years," Leslie wrote.

Since October 2020 occurred at the pinnacle of the Covid-19 wave, two-time Olympic gold champion Lauren had some labor intricacies when giving birth to her son Hendrix. However, the delivery went well, and he was born healthy and whole without significant complications.

The Holidays' kid, Hendrix, had just been with the family for five weeks when the trade to Milwaukee was finalized. The family had to move to Milwaukee from New Orleans.

On September 4, 2016, it was revealed that Holiday had been diagnosed with a brain tumor when she was pregnant with her baby girl. Her husband, Jrue, took some time off the game and dedicated his time to caring for her.

In late June 2016, a tumor on her brain's right side turned out harmless. Later September 2016, Holiday became a mother to Jrue Tyler Holiday, a baby girl, and the tumor was successfully removed in October of the same year after a major operation.

It was successfully removed, although it required a significant operation and a protracted rehabilitation period. "I have never quite known suffering like I experienced the last 6 months." She shared her experience on her Instagram. "I can remember countless nights repeating 'There may be a pain in the night, but joy comes in the morning."

Holiday is all good now; her daughter Jrue Tyler is six years old. The 2014 U.S. Soccer Female Athlete of the Year winner and the mother of two, Lauren, posted a picture of her baby girl standing next to balloons on her sixth birthday.
