The story behind this one has got to be something SERIOUS.
Phoenix Suns point guard Steve Nash and his wife Alejandra Amarillo announced their divorce yesterday, just one day after welcoming their third kid into the world.
Steve Nash and his wife, Alejandra Amarilla, have announced their intention to dissolve their marriage, according to a report from Life & Style.
The timing here is fairly surprising, considering that early Friday morning the couple welcomed into the world their third child (and first son), Matteo Joel Nash. Nash and Amarilla had been together for nine years, and were married in 2005.
“I am very thankful and excited that we have a new son, Matteo Nash,” Steve said in a statement to Life & Style. “Alejandra and the baby are doing fine. But this is a bittersweet moment for my wife and I; after five years, we are now in the process of dissolving our marriage.
“While we have lived separately for the past several months, we remain firmly committed to raising our children in the most positive, nurturing way possible. I want only good things for Ale going forward; right now, I’m focused on ensuring that our children understand how much they’re loved and adored by us as they continue to adjust to these changes. I would ask that their privacy, and ours as a family, be respected as we move forward. This will be my only statement on this.”
Dayum! We wonder what she’s gonna have to say about it. Steve looks like such a good dude…
