“As the decade comes to an end this has to be one of my Favorite moments,” NBA player Shawn Marion wrote on his Instagram while dedicating the post to his son.
While the athlete treats his social media followers with an adorable picture with his son flexing his fatherhood, the post raises the question of whether he has a wife.
Who Is Shawn Marion’s Wife?
The Instagram post that triggered his followers with questions regarding his love life was from January 1, 2020, when Shawn revealed a rare father-son moment on his ‘gram.
Welcoming the new year with a warm embrace, he reflected on one of the best moments of the past decade in his life, and clearly, his son, Shawn David Marion, is one of them.
He took his time to share his gratefulness for being a father to his son by sharing the picture with his little one where he is seen holding his infant son close to his heart, and the warmth of his parental love is sure to melt your heart.

But as the athlete is keen on keeping his personal life away from the spotlight, he did not reveal many details of his son on the ‘gram post.
And neither is has he ever opened up about who the baby mama is. Seeing him with a child might keep his fans assuming he is married, but the athlete is yet to tie a knot. However, some gossip sites did mention the rumors of his romantic ties in the past through the year, but none were ever confirmed.
Regardless of his extremely private love life, the proud father does not hesitate to flaunt his love for his son whenever he gets a chance. To take up his father’s duties, he even retired from NBA in 2015 after finishing his 16th season.
Talking about his retirement to ABC News, he said that he was retiring from the game to fulfill his fatherly duties to his son. In his words,
I wanted to go out on my terms. The biggest thing is having a son. I got attached to him. Seeing him periodically is hard. Watching him grow up on pictures and videos is hard.
