Speaking of their interracial marriage, Dirk opened up and shared how it was like to be the groom in a Kenyan marriage.
In true Kenyan tradition, the basketballer had to do the task of identifying his wife in a group of five veiled Kenyan women. Picking the wrong one would have made Dirk give up a goat.
He explained the experience as,
"I guess it's one of the traditions. If you get it wrong, you got to pay the parents a goat or something. So I was lucky. I smelled her to find the right one. So, I got lucky there. But that was just an experience that I'll never forget."
He also added that the couple has not been directed any racial comments. In his own words,
"Nobody actually approached me with it. Everybody that's met my wife has said she's great with me. So I haven't heard any of that to my face. I'm sure there's some people that think of it to themselves. But, I've never heard it to my face."
He then concluded,
"You're a team. Same with marriage. You're a team, and pulling on the same string. You try to make it work and chemistry has got to be there. That is just the way I was raised."
Indeed he is right as love is beyond the boundaries created by humans and is the most beautiful feeling in the world.
Jessica and Dirk share three kids together daughter Malaika Nowitzki, and two sons Max Nowitzki, and Morris Nowitzki. As a parent, Drik shared the challenges of raising kids as,
"You always worry for your kids. Are they going to fall out the crib? Are they going to make the right decision later? Who they're dating? Are they going to run into a cop one of these days? You always worry as a parent. That's something for sure that's in the back of your mind, but eventually educate them the right way and keep teaching them how to respond."
He then added,
"You react to authority when somebody speaks to you, like teachers, parents or whoever. You have to educate them early enough so they know, this is a person, the higher authority, you need to show them some respect."
