Is Steve Nash trying to save money on a publicist? The NBA star has announced the birth of his son and that he is divorcing his wife all in the same statement. Nash and his wife Alejandra welcomed their third child into the world, a son named Matteo Nash but have decided to go their separate ways.
The Arizona Republic released a statement form Nash saying, “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 me; after five years, we are now in the process of dissolving our marriage.”
Nash met Alejandra in 2001 and were married in 2005. The couple gave birth to twins girls in 2004. In the statement, Nash also said, “I want only good things for Ale going forward. I’m focused on ensuring that our children understand how much they’re adored and loved 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.”
Alejandra is from Uruguay and worked as a personal trainer before marrying Nash, who plays for the Phoenix Suns.
