The 31-year-old basketball player may have won the Rookie of the Year award and two Olympic gold medals, but apart from all that he is a family man, and this is the car we are jumping on today. It is time we met the people closest to him; we are talking about Chris Paul’s wife, his children, and his brother.
Chris Paul’s Wife
Chris settled down with Jada Paul (nee Crawley), a girl he met while studying at Wake Forest University. The two got along immediately and from then on she became a celebrity overnight. Their relationship lasted eight long years before they moved on to the next level. That was after they had their first son and their first child, Christopher Emmanuel Paul II, on 23 May 2009.
They closed their home state of North Carolina with an extravagant fairytale-style wedding ceremony that took place at the Ballantyne Hotel and Lodge in Charlotte, North Carolina. It was a large ceremony attended by about 300 guests.
Despite her husband’s star status, Jada usually tries to stay out of the limelight and lead an inconspicuous life. Much of the information about her private life remains unknown, and she tries her best to keep it that way. This was probably a good choice because there are some strange people out there.
Earlier this year, in March, a crazy fan proved once again that the world is a BAD place. The killer posted a tweet saying, ” @CP# If I knew where you lived, I’d probably kill your wife and frame you for it, I watch Dateline I get away with it”.
This was not a matter to be taken lightly, and the athlete did not, he contacted the Los Angeles Police Department. LAPD initiated an investigation to track down this threatening troll, but according to TMZ, no arrests were made.
The Paul’s do not let this steal their will to live, they are very charitable people. According to the fandom, Chris Paul’s wife recently held a raffle in which she paid for the formal dresses of fifty girls who will attend their prom in May.
The young ladies had the opportunity to shop with Jada and choose the dress that suits them.
Chris Paul’s Son
Although the athlete had two children, a son, Christopher Emmanuel Paul, and a daughter, Camryn Alexis Paul, everything today revolves around Lil’ Chris, as he is affectionately known. He was born two years before his parents’ wedding, so he had the “rare” privilege of being a guest at his parents’ wedding.
His parents are very proud of him, and although they try their best to keep him out of the social eye, we catch a glimpse of the little guy every now and then. When they talked about their son, the couple said, “We never knew it was possible to love someone as much as we loved each other until you came into our lives.
As we can all see, he has some of that spicy basketball blood in him, he stole the ball from Kobe Bryant!
Chris Paul’s Brother
Chris is not an only child, this subheading must have already established that, but we wanted to put it there anyway. Chris and his older brother, C.J. Paul, spent their summers working at a gas station owned by their grandfather, Nathanial Jones, to whom Paul attributes many life lessons.
Both Chris and CJ were taught the basics of football and basketball by their father, but it was Chris who later decided to make a career out of it. Oh, yeah, that’s the same brother who made fun of Chris and thought he was too young to be a basketball player, but boys will be boys, right?

Funny fact, Chris and C.J. were roommates and they’re best friends, too… wanna guess who Chris Paul’s manager is? Yep, it’s his brother. If it wasn’t for him, I’d be stressed all the time,” said Chris. ‘Do this, do that, go here, go there. Now I only worry about winning the game every time I walk on the court. He takes care of the rest of those things.
Sounds like the perfect balance.
Chris Paul House
With a net worth of $95 million, you can bet that the athlete has set up a nice pad for his wife, his lovely children, and himself. Well, he’s made us proud by buying a $9 million home not too far from the Kardashians.
The house was built in 2006 and catch this, it has about 10,400 square meters of interior space – more than twice the size of an NBA court. It has five bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms with a master suite, complete with a living room and fireplace.
It also has a state-of-the-art kitchen equipped with a pizza oven and a formal dining room with a wine cellar and tasting room. The Paul residence also has a home cinema, a craft room, a library, and a fitness room with a steam shower and sauna.
Isn’t this an amazing way to spend $9 million?
