Jalen Rose had one of the celebrated careers in NBA- he played for six NBA team in his playing days. But finally, at the age of 43, he has found his lady love at his workplace.

Former NBA baller/ESPN analyst Jalen Rose has been dating ESPN “First Take” gorgeous host Molly Qerim. In July, he posted a cute picture of himself with Molly with the caption:

 "Had a great time seeing @JoelOsteen w/ Wifey @MollyQerim.#Blessed."

Molly Qerim has been the permanent host of ESPN’s First Take since the September of this year, and it will not be false to say she’s witnessed her fair share of interesting moments: Stephen A. Smith threatening fellow Kevin Durant, Stephen A. Smith going hard at Ayesha Curry, Skip Bayless leaving and more. But after all these typical rants and drama, you’d expect something big from the host of ESPN’s debate juggernaut.

Girlfriend, Dating or Married, Wife?

Well, it looks like Molly found a loving boyfriend in basketball analyst (and fellow ESPN colleague) Jalen Rose, who released this photo on Twitter on 8th July of 2016.

During a 2009 ESPN online chat, she revealed that she was too occupied with her career. She said: 

“I am not married and do not have a bf. I’m not dating anyone until I get my career where I want it to be. My full focus is on that.”

But the dating crisis wasn't meant to last forever; she has been dating Jalen Rose. We hope the best for the charitable couple. The former Fab Fiver has given more than a million dollar to community programs around Detroit. On the other hand, Qerim is a United Way Ambassador for the NFL.

Does have a Children?

Jalen’s personal life has always been into controversies; he has just one child, a gorgeous daughter Mariah Rose, but what about Maria’s mother? Who is Jalen’s ex-wife?

Jalen had even tweeted about Alexandra Rose, the same Alexandra Rose who was rumored to be his wife and Mariah’s mom. For the matter of fact, Jalen has never tied a knot.

Jalen Rose became the father of his only daughter Mariah Christian Rose when she was conceived on July 14, 2000, in Indianapolis to Jalen and his then sweetheart, Mauri Goens. Jalen's name had also been linked with Krissy Terry, an American, singer, and actress.

Jalen Rose to star in ABC comedy!
