Meet Leonard Fournette’s Daughter, Lyric


There is one person who it the center of Leonard Fournette's world: his daughter, Lyric. That center expanded to include a new baby boy, Leonard IV, in Spring 2017. Leonard has two children with the addition of Leonard IV. According to The Advocate, Lyric's mother, Jamie Jones, raised Lyric with the help of her family while Leonard was at LSU. Lyric has become a star on her own with Leonard frequently posting photos of his daughter on social media. Her audience just expanded as Leonard heads to the NFL. It is the presence of his daughter that gives him the motivation he needs to continue to improve his game. “She’s the best thing to happen to me. She makes me a better person. My attitude at school, workouts. When things get harder, she’s what I think about. She depends on me," Leonard told The Advocate. Things have not always been easy for Leonard as his family survived Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. “We had to go looting stores to get food and medicine for my grandmother, who was on the bridge with us,” Fournette told 225 Magazine. “She and my grandfather, we had to make sure they were healthy. My father and them, they had to do what they had to do to get us out of New Orleans.” Things are looking much better for the Fournette family as Leonard heads to the NFL.
