Joel Embiid Dating Life - Who Is Girlfriend?
While Joel is determined to win an NBA Most Valuable Player award, he secretly dates his girlfriend. And, she is the beautiful Anne De Paula, a swimsuit model, who is represented by Wilhelmina modeling agency.

Even though he did not exactly reveal the name of his girlfriend but he sure praised her saying that she is "pretty big at what she does." According to Page Six, the duo was also spotted at the same club in Miami.
Likewise, in early October, Anne was seen standing next to Joel when his team played overseas during the preseason. The same month, a pic of Joel kissing Anne surfaced the media.
Two months later, Joel confessed his absence from the social media was because he is busy cuddling and watching Netflix with his girl instead of trash talking in the social media. Well, supposedly, the duo couldn't be happier.

Nevertheless, Joel often opens up about the romance he shares with his girlfriend. During an interview with GQ, he stated that he had a background check before they started dating.
Turns out he wouldn't prefer marrying someone, who has been with another member in NBA.
“You gotta do your background check. You don’t want to be that guy marrying a girl that someone else in the NBA has been with. I’m sure some guys end up getting married to women that have been around. And maybe on the court, they also get told – ‘Hey, I f**ked your wife’.
Well, by the looks of it, it seems that Joel has got the perfect partner to exchange the wedding vows very soon.
