Julie Pierce, Paul Pierce
Ironically enough, Paul Pierce wasn’t the first NBA player whom the future Mrs. Julie Pierce dated. The latter had a previous relationship with Larry Hughes. Even more ironically, Hughes was married at the time, and Julie wasn’t aware Hughes had a wife; she reportedly broke off the relationship when she found out. Soon after the end of her relationship with Hughes, Julie found Paul, and the rest is history.
• Paul Pierce met wife Julie in 2005, and the two began dating shortly after that year’s NBA All-Star Game
• An interior designer, Julie had a career long before the two began seeing each other.
• Married in 2010, the couple have three children together
