Shaun Livingston was born on September 11 and in 1985. His achievements in basketball have left his father, who began training him as a boy to become an athlete, a very fulfilled and happy man.
With over twelve years of experience as a professional basketball player, the American is currently the point guard for the Golden State Warriors of the NBA.
Before joining the Warriors after his time with the Brooklyn Nets, Shaun played for a handful of other famous teams, including the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Washington Wizards, the Milwaukee Bucks, the Charlotte Bobcats, the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Tulsa 66ers, the Miami Heat and, of course, the Los Angeles Clippers, which marked the birth of his NBA career.
Shaun Livingston’s Parents
The man’s parents are Reggie Livingston (father) and Ann Wyman (mother). You can’t say that they raised Shaun together with his sisters – Sarah Aupperle-Livingston and Blair Wyman as Reggie and Ann – when Shaun was only 2 years old.
His parents meet in a nightclub in Peoria, Illinois. They danced and kindled an affection for each other, which they saw united in marriage two years later. They welcomed Shaun soon after, but the marriage was not to last more than a year and a half. The union Reggie-Ann collapsed shortly after 15 months and Ann was granted custody of her son. However, since it was difficult for her to stay close to her child, Reggie took over custody.
As such, the B-ball was raised by his father, who worked with his own father (Shaun’s grandfather) Frank to prepare Shaun for what he is now known for. Nevertheless, the NBA star would agree that he got his passion for basketball from his mother. He once revealed that all her brothers played basketball.
Wife or Girlfriend Is Shaun Livingston Married?
Among the various things speculated about the point guard NBA star are the facts about his romantic affairs. You may come across several sources online that claim that the basketball player was dating several women, but we can only authenticate his affair with Joanna Williams.
As far as we know, the man’s love life revolves around the woman, who is supposed of Puerto Rican, Italian and African descent. Joanna, who grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada, and is affectionately known as Joey, has been a role model for more than 15 years. According to what we found out, she is one of the founders of the Chung Marie Group from Las Vegas, which proudly calls itself a creative full-service production company.
For reasons best known to Mr. Livingston, he has made a persistent effort to keep his relationship with Joey a secret. While it is difficult to say exactly when the two lovers became lovers, it is also not known to many that the lovers are now life partners – they married sometime in August 2017.
It was a very low-key wedding; even some of his buddies in the NBA didn’t get to attend the union. In fact, it said there that those who didn’t know they were attending a wedding, thought it was just a party, and a party it was until the couple announced that they were getting married on the spot. Since then they have lived and still live together in their house in Oakland.
Livingston and Joanna have much more in common than the love and admiration for each other that has held them together. The couple has a daughter they call Tyler Marie. She was born in February 2017, before her parents made the covenant for life. Although Shaun was careful to make his private life a public matter, he shows pictures of his wife and daughter on his Instagram page. They obviously mean the world to him.
