In a statement released to Life and Style Magazine, Steve Nash announced that he was splitting with wife Alejandra. The news comes just one day after the couple's third child, their first son, was born. The couple have a set of twin girls as well.
Here's the full statement:
"I am very thankful and excited that we have a new son, Matteo Nash. Alejandra and the baby are doing fine. But this is a bittersweet moment for my wife and I; after five years, we are now in the process of dissolving our marriage. While we have lived separately for the past several months, we remain firmly committed to raising our children in the most positive, nurturing way possible. I want only good things for Ale going forward; right now, I'm focused on ensuring that our children understand how much they're loved and adored by us as they continue to adjust to these changes. I would ask that their privacy, and ours as a family, be respected as we move forward. This will be my only statement on this."
After the fake story last week in the Phoenix New Times that Nash was quiting basketball to enter Canadian politics and than the rampart but unsubstantiated trade rumors this week, it's been quite the media-filled frenzy for Steve.
We can only wish Steve the best with his personal situation and respect his privacy on the matter.
