Look: Our Favorite Baller-Celeb Couples

From Dwyane Wade and Gabby Union to Carmelo Anthony and La La.

Published October 19, 2016

Congratulations to Nnamdi Asomugha and Kerry Washington on the birth of their son, Caleb Kelechi Asomugha, who was born two weeks ago as reports revealed Tuesday. The former NFL Pro Bowler and Hollywood star's second child got us thinking about other baller-celeb couples who we love out here. From Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union to Carmelo Anthony and La La, these are the athletes and their actress/singer wives and girlfriends that are our favorites.

  1. Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union

    Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union have been the epitome of #BlackLove for quite some time now. And the fact that their love seemingly only grows is yet another reason why they remain one of our favorite baller-celeb couples.

  2. Carmelo Anthony and La La

    What's not to like about Carmelo Anthony and La La together? From the New York Knicks All-Star forward still dominating NBA courts to the actress hitting hard with her scenes — like in Power — and the couple being front and center in the Big Apple, they just have it going on in every way. And they're woke out here.

  3. Iman Shumpert and Teyana Taylor

    From becoming new parents to adorable baby Junie to Iman Shumpert winning an NBA ring with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Shump and Teyana Taylor stealing the show in Kanye West's "Fade" video, this power couple is WINNING right now in a major way. Gotta love it.

  4. Tristan Thompson and Khloe Kardashian

    Just Tuesday, reports surfaced about Tristan Thompson and Khloe Kardashian taking their budding romance to another level, as they're allegedly moving in together. Considering that the Cleveland Cavaliers center has a child on the way via his pregnant ex-girlfriend, we guess Tristan and Khloe are more serious than the public thinks they are. You already know that Khloe loves her NBA ballers.

  5. Aaron Rodgers and Olivia Munn

    Hopefully the Green Bay Packers quarterback's recent struggles on the field aren't related to anything remotely close to his lovely lady, Olivia Munn. We like them together.

  6. Nick Young and Paloma Ford

    So, the whole Swaggy P-Iggy Azalea engagement fell apart due to the Los Angeles Lakers forward's creeping ways. We hope Nick Young uses better judgment with Paloma Ford, who he seems to be pretty serious about.

  7. Russell Wilson and Ciara

    Hey, what can you say? Whether you find him corny or not, Russell Wilson's got the juice. And the Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl champion quarterback gushes over his love for his wife, Ciara, every chance he gets. He's head over cleats in love for CiCi and there's nothing wrong with that.
