Basketball star Steve Nash and wife Alejandra Nash are splitting up. The day after Alejandra gave birth to a their son Matteo Joel, Steve publicly announced they were getting a divorce.
He made a statement to Life & Style in which he announced the birth but called it a “bittersweet moment”, revealing that he and his wife had “lived separately for the past several months” and are “in the process of dissolving” their marriage.
The couple also have six-year-old twin daughters together. Hopefully Alejandra has enough support to deal with the media attention, divorce, her daughters and now her newborn son.
From the sounds of Steve’s statement, the split is amicable and he will continue to be there for his children.
“I am very thankful and excited that we have a new son, Matteo Nash. 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 all 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.”
