AceShowbiz - Apollo Nida is probably the happiest man on Earth now. He is now able to spend time with sons, Ayden and Dylan, after serving his prison sentence, so it's only natural for him to share some pictures from their outing as he also expresses his gratitude for the two boys for always "remaining strong" while he was away in jail.
Both photos appeared to be taken in a restaurant, with Ayden and Dylan excitedly opening some presents they got from their dad. Apollo was seen standing near the boys as he watched on. "I love these two amazingly smart young men. Life is only going to get better for US," he wrote in the caption of the first post. "THANKS FOR REMAINING STRONG WHILE DADDY WAS AWAY, LOVE YOU SO MUCH."
Apollo was released from prison last summer after serving roughly five years of an eight-year sentence after pleading guilty for laundering $2.3 million through stolen checks and other avenues. Following his jail release, the star spent time in a halfway house in Philadelphia before his official release on November 26 last year.
Last month, Phaedra revealed in an interview that their kids spent Thanksgiving together with him and hinted that they also celebrated Christmas together. "The one thing that will be different about this year is that my sons' father is home from being incarcerated, so hopefully he will be able to join us for some of the festivities," she said at the time.
She continued of their Christmas tradition, "My kids really don't want for anything, so during Christmas season I really make it about family and memories and giving to others and really appreciating what we have as a family."
