Gerald Henderson was playing with the Charlotte Hornets when he fell head over heels for single momma Nilou Saniri, a Charlotte Hornets Honeybees dancer who managed to be the caring, loving mother to her six-year-old daughter Roya and a hard working NBA dancer.

It was hard for Nilou Saniri,with late night practices and waking up early in the morning to make breakfast and have Roya ready for school.

“I’m very driven for her,” Saniri said. “At the end of the day I know I have to be there for her, so I wake up in the morning and I’m like ‘look let’s do it.”

“I’ve had to give up a lot of things with being young and a single mother. This is the one thing that I’m holding on to, that no matter what I’m going to make it work,” she said.

“When she sees me out there I know it excites her. It makes her proud, so just feeling that from her makes me feel some kind of way,” Saniri said.

“I only have this chance with her once. When she gets older and she gets to the age where she doesn’t want to hang out with me anymore, I’m going to wish I did hang out with her when I had the chance. So I do, I really hang on to those moments with her,” Saniri said.
