Leave it to Dallas Mavericks star J. J. Barea to marry Miss Universe Puerto Rico 2011. The couple got hitched in 2016 and it’s been a fairytale romance ever since. They also had a child in March 2016. And if you ask anyone, it’s clear that Ortiz’s beauty is a force to be reckoned with.
Ayesha Curry And Steph Curry
You might know her from the show, “Ayesha’s Homemade,” on the Food Network, but the gorgeous celebrity cook made headlines when she married Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry in 2011. And somehow, they’ve avoided the NBA couple’s curse. But their faith and the fact that they met at church when they were 14 and 15 might have something to do with it.
Kate Bock And Kevin Love
Cleveland Cavaliers’ Kevin Love is a lucky guy. He’s in a serious relationship with Kate Bock, a breathtaking model who has been part of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit family since 2013. And she’s making a comeback in 2019. This will be her seventh year with SI, which isn't really that surprising given her stunning good looks.
Robyn Hayward And Gordon Hayward
