LeBron James is one proud dad.

While chatting with Access Hollywood at the West Coast premiere of Space Jam: A New Legacy Monday, the NBA star, 36, couldn't help but rave about his three children.

LeBron, who shares daughter, Zhuri Nova, 6, plus sons Bryce Maximus James, 14, and LeBron "Bronny" James Jr., 16, with wife Savannah James, expressed his unconditional love for his kids while speaking to the outlet.

"My daughter is the greatest thing in my life, along with my boys," he said. "So, whenever she smiles, it don't matter what I'm doing, it makes me happy."

LeBron brought along his wife and daughter for the big night out, where the Los Angeles Lakers great sported a fitted navy suit with a matching dress shirt, tie and black dress shoes. Savannah, meanwhile, looked stunning in a neon green dress with heels of the same hue, while Zhuri wore an adorable light blue floral ensemble.

The athlete also spoke about his kids while appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Tuesday, where he discussed his oldest son's latest achievement.

During the show, guest host Arsenio Hall mentioned that Bronny was featured on the July cover of Sports Illustrated. The teenager appeared on the magazine alongside other members of the popular e-sports team, FaZe Clan.

"Bronny plays video games all day," LeBron told Hall. "I mean, he loves basketball, he plays basketball, loves being a big brother to his little brother and sister. But video games is his thing."

The Lakers star continued, "When he got on the cover, I was like, 'You know I was younger than you, right?' And then he did some research — all these kids got all these phones, which we didn't have when I was growing up like that — he was like, 'Dad, no, you were actually six months older than me. Now I'm the youngest guy in the household on Sports Illustrated.' "

LeBron and Hall both laughed about the conversation, adding that though Bronny's cover isn't basketball-related, James hopes to see his son get media coverage, again, one day for his skills on the court. "That would be amazing. That would be amazing, for sure," he said.

The NBA player is often sharing his son's success in basketball with fans on social media, whether it's attending one of his games or showing off the similarities between the pair. Last week, he posted a photo and video of the two making similar dunks. "Like father, like son! #JamesGang," he captioned the post.
