Earvin Johnson III - the son of basketball legend and Los Angeles Dodgers owner Magic Johnson - went public with his same-sex relationship yesterday, strolling down the Sunset Strip while holding the hand of his boyfriend.
And the former Lakers star couldn't be more supportive of the 20-year old.
Referencing his wife, Johnson told TMZ:
"Cookie and I love EJ and support him in every way. We're very proud of him."
The younger Johnson is a student at NYU and clearly enjoys a close bond with his parents. He's "hoping and praying" for a winning Dodgers season and Magic Tweeted last August:
"Thx to my son EJ for hosting me at NYU. Look forward to taking him to dinner tonight in the city."
