They welcomed their first child in 2020

Ricky Rubio and wife Sara welcomed their first child, a son they named Liam, in January 2020. The couple has chosen to keep him away from the spotlight, however, following his birth, Ricky Rubio admitted being a father is the “best thing” to have happened to him.

Rubio recently mentioned his now two-year-old son in an interview with Spanish publication La Vanguardia. While chatting to the publication he admitted there soon could be a “time when basketball will not be the priority” as his son nears the age of starting school.

He explained: “When my son starts school, the NBA will not be worth it. I will have to go back. I don’t want to make him dizzy moving around when he’s six years old, at the age of starting to make friends. It was discussed with my wife and we have it very clear. There will come a time when basketball will not be the priority.”
