‘Taller Than You Now’: La La Anthony’s Fans Shocked at How Tall Her Son Kiyan Has Gotten

Based on social media postings, it seems that basketball is Kiyan Anthony‘s passion, which is good, because he’s sprouting up rather nicely. At least that’s what a lot of people are saying on social media.

Kiyan is the 13-year-old son of Carmelo and La La Anthony, and La La shared a photo of the teen on Instagram Thursday, Feb. 6.


The pic was taken one day before, when mother and son attended the 2020 amfAR Gala in New York City.

La La is sporting a long black dress in the photo and Kiyan a sky blue suit.

After the pic was shared, it was clear that people loved seeing the two together, and they commented on their seemingly close bond.

There were also folks who said they were blown away at how tall Kiyan has gotten.

“BFF’s ❤️❤️❤️,” wrote La La in the caption.

“Taller than you now,” someone else commented.

“❤️❤️❤️When did he get that tall?😱 Time is flying!” wrote someone else.

“He grew over night!! 😍😍,” a third person weighed in.

“THAT KID IS GROWING UP RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES,” a fourth person stated, using all caps.

Kiyan’s father, Carmelo, who currently plays in the NBA for the Portland Trail Blazers, is listed at 6 feet 8 by the NBA, and, for what it’s worth, there are a number of websites that have La La at 5 feet 6. So it may not be surprising that Kiyan looks so tall.

La La also shared another photo of her son from the event, a closeup shot that people said they loved.

“My handsome date for AmFar last whole heart… KIYAN❤️,” wrote the proud mom next to the photo.

“He looks like his mom with his dad swag bless family 🙏🙏🙏,” wrote one of La La’s Instagram followers.

“Awww he’s so perfect!😍 Get it Kiyan,” wrote someone else.

“❤️❤️Hi Kiyan nice picture looking like your mom,” another person followed.
