As an NBA player, Steve Nash did great things. He was one of the best point guards in the league, and when he was on the court, the Phoenix Suns’ offence ran like clockwork.
Nash’s time as a coach hasn’t been as nice, and neither has his personal life. The basketball legend married Alejandra Amarilla in 2005, but they ended up getting a divorce a couple of years later.
This article will tell you everything you need to know about Steve Nash’s ex-wife, Alejandra Amarilla. Let’s take a peek into her private life and see how she got to know the eight-time All-Star.
Who is Steve Nash’s ex-wife, Alejandra Amarilla?
Alejandra Amarilla was born in 1974 in the country of Paraguay. Because her father worked for the United Nations, she moved around a lot and lived in a lot of different countries.
Alejandra told Arizona Foothills in an interview that Nicaragua was her favourite country she’s lived in. She liked beaches, people, and being in the country.
Do you know that on the Bobby Bones Show, Amy Brown talked about something very personal? She and her husband, Ben, are getting a divorce:
Amarilla also said that she loved meeting new people and learning about different cultures. She has travelled with her family, and she wants to do the same with her own children.
Nash’s ex-wife has also worked on a documentary film about transforming the lives of children and their families. The story takes place in Paraguay, where Amarilla was born and raised.
Alejandra Amarilla Allegedly Cheated on Nash
In 2001, Steve and Alejandra met in New York City. The point guard then played for the Dallas Mavericks and had a big year, averaging 15.6 points and 7.3 assists.
In October 2004, Lola and Bella, their twin daughters, were born. Less than a year after this, Steve and Alejandra decided to tie the knot.
When they had their third child in November 2010, everything seemed fine in their marriage. This, however, was not the case.
The former basketball player said after the birth of his son –
“This is a bittersweet moment for my wife and I”
“After five years, we are now in the process of dissolving our marriage.”
In the same statement, the famous basketball player said he and his wife had been living apart for a few months.
“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.”
Some people say that Alejandra Amarilla cheated on Steve Nash with his teammate Jason Richardson. Even though these rumours have never been proven true, it’s interesting that Richardson was traded from the Phoenix Suns to the Orlando Magic in December 2010.
