Steve Nash, born on February 7, 1974, in Johannesburg, South Africa, is probably the most famous and successful basketball player Canada has ever produced. From the Phoenix Suns to the Dallas Mavericks to the Los Angeles Lakers, Nash parted company with the NBA courts in 2015.
History will never forget Mr. Nash’s deeds and accomplishments in the NBA. But, this is a story for another day. Here the story revolves primarily around the former professional basketball player’s love life, his children, and his fortune. Let’s cut to the chase, shall we?
Steve Nash’s Wife, Divorce, Girlfriend, and Kids
As a superstar and one of the most iconic figures in the field he made his profession, it was almost impossible for Nash to hide anything about his life from the public. This was the case with his love life; his romantic relationships were and probably would continue to be of public interest.
In light of this, it is common knowledge that Mr. Nash was once married to Alejandra Amarilla. As far as we know, the ex-NBA star met Amarilla back in 2001 in Manhattan. One thing led to another, they became serious friends and then lovers, before finally deciding to become each other’s, life partners.
The Paraguayan film producer and the cult point guard got married sometime in June 2005, but they were already a family before they became man and wife. The year before (2004), on 14 October to be exact, the duo welcomed a number of twin daughters, whom they named Bella and Lola. About five years after their marriage, it was common knowledge that the couple was expecting another child. Amarilla gave birth to her son Matteo on November 12, 2010.
While everyone celebrated the arrival of the newcomer, Nash threw a bomb – the love between him and the mother of his twin daughters had failed. Nash announced the birth of his son to the world and assured the world that he was a happy but sad man. He revealed that he and Alejandra had been separated for several months and revealed that they had begun to work towards ending their relationship.
This was pretty sad news for Nash fans around the world. Many hoped that the couple would solve their problems, whatever their problem was. To their dismay, the marriage between Nash and Alejandra officially broke up in 2011. There has been much speculation about the reason for the marriage’s failure, but hardly anyone can say what the problem between the two was. Nevertheless, it is believed that his wife was cheating on him with his former teammate Jason Richardson.
Anyway, the separation from Alejandra was not the end of their love for Nash. He found a girlfriend after a few years. Lilla Frederick, an ex-volleyball player on the US women’s junior team, became the love of his life. As the couple was touring Europe together, the tint of the wedding bell was eagerly awaited. This happened in March 2016, Nash and Lilla were in Spain when he fell on one knee and asked for her hand.
A few months later, sometime in September, it was a done deal. Lilla became the wife of Nash. The marriage was consummated and not long after, the couple welcomed their first child together, a son they called Luca Sun Nash. Little Sun was born sometime in July 2017 in Los Angeles. At the time of writing this report, Steve Nash and his family live in Southern California.
Steve Nash’s Net Worth
While it has been circulated that Steve Nash has a net worth of $95 million, it is important to note that this figure is only a rough estimate of the man’s wealth and not an accurate estimate of the value of his assets.
Frankly, whatever information is used to estimate or calculate the amount widely reported as Nash’s net worth, it is most likely insufficient to capture the true value of his wealth. The former NBA star has a handful of investment portfolios, and the details of the asset collection are known to him and the managers of his assets at best.
Therefore, the figure, which is widely believed to represent the value of all non-financial and financial assets owned by Nash, is quite misleading. We cannot certify it as his net worth, but we do know this: He made up to $13,125,000 in one season playing for the Phoenix Suns. His return from the Dallas Mavericks to the Suns in the 2004/2005 season was facilitated by a six-year contract worth $63 million.
In the meantime, he enjoyed lucrative sponsorship contracts from major companies such as Nike and the Swiss luxury watch brand Raymond Weil, to name but a few.
Height – How Tall Is Nash?
You don’t have to speculate about how big the Canadian is. The fact is that Steve Nash is three inches taller than six feet. Of course, his height has helped him in no small measure to achieve the prestigious status of one of the best point guard basketball players in the history of the North American professional men’s basketball league – the National Basket Ball Association (NBA).
