It’s a blended family, hold the beef.
The drama between Gloria Govan and the baby daddy of her twins has official sizzled, at least in the public eye. The former Basketball Wives stars, her new fiance, and her ex Matt Barnes are all on better terms after years of messy co-parenting drama.
Govan, Barnes, and her current boo Derek Fisher all came together to celebrate the birthday of the former couple’s twin boys. The 12-year-old boys gathered in a group with their mom, dad, and future step-dad. Matt shared the photo on social media, calling the occasion “birthday dinner for the bros,” referring to his and Gloria’s kids.
Matt Barnes didn’t elaborate on his current relationship with Gloria or Derek Fisher, but the group outing seems like a huge step forward after years of turmoil between him and the couple. A few years ago, Barnes physically assaulted Fisher, his former teammate, at the home of Govan when he found out they were dating. At that time they had not been in a relationship.
Ever since the physical incident between Matt Barnes and Derek Fisher, Matt and Gloria were in a nasty custody battle resulting in the mom being arrested for felony child endangerment after they physically fought over their kids in public. It seems like that’s all water under the bridge now.
So happy to see Gloria, Derek, and Matt coming together for the sake of their children. In other Gloria Govan news, looks like the fit mom was busy celebrating a big birthday for her twin boys. The reality TV star shared a gushy post about her boys turning the big 12!
“Today you two turn 12… 🤯 and I just can’t believe how fast time has flown by. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to be your mom, best friend, and confidant,” captioned an emotional Govan.
“I find myself staring at you both, smiling, in awe at the little men you’re becoming. I cherish our conversations, our jokes and laughs, our kitchen dances, and silliness. Thank you for being such incredible, so kind, caring, sensitive, smart, and talented little humans. And As you start another trip around the sun, I pray you continue to walk in faith and know that no matter what, I’ll be there by your side! Happy birthday, baby boys. 🎉🥰🎁🎈🎂 I love you infinite x infinite x the depth of the universe! 😘 (I win) 🤪.”
Congrats to the whole family!
