Meet Va’Shaundya “Shuanie” Nelson O’Neal, wife of NBA Star Shaquille O’Neal. On December 26th, 2002, Shaq married former film marketer Shaunie, at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
They have four children together: Shareef Rashaun, Amirah Sanaa, Shaquir Rashaun, and Me’arah Sanaa. The couple’s daughter, Me’arah Sanaa O’Neal, was born at 4:57 a.m. on May 1, 2006, which was, coincidentally, the same day Kobe Bryant’s second daughter was born. She weighed 8 lb., 1 oz., and was 21 inches long.
Shaunie has another son, Myles, from a previous relationship. Shaq also has a daughter, Taahirah (born July 18th, 1996), by his ex-girlfriend Arnetta Yardbourgh.

On September 4, 2007, O’ Neal filed for divorce from his wife Shaunie in a Miami-Dade Circuit court.
According to the petition, “The marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken”, and that Shaunie was “secretive about her assets … particularly with respect to certain properties owned or titled in either [her] name alone or in other entities” and requests that the court require Shaunie to give a “correct accounting of all money, funds, stocks, bonds, and other securities (including bearer securities)” Shaunie later said that the couple had gotten back together and that the divorce was withdrawn.
