The former No.1 overall pick was named an All-Star for the first time this year and is into the Western Conference Finals. But who is Andrew Wiggins’ girlfriend, Mychal Johnson, and how many children do they have?

Canadian basketball star Andrew Wiggins is enjoying arguably the best spell of his career with the Golden State Warriors. Wiggins had mixed fortunes in Minnesota before being traded to the Warriors in 2020.

He’s was voted an All-Star starter this season, and is about to face the Dallas Mavericks in the Western Conference Finals.

Wiggins named All-Star starter

Wiggins seems to have found the perfect role with the Warriors. He isn’t the star man and can go out there without the pressures of being that guy, and he seems to be flourishing.

Wiggins was able to edge teammate Draymond Green for the third West front-court spot in the All-Star voting, ranking third among the fans’ voting while Green was sixth.

“It was mind blowing,” Wiggins said. “I was taking my pre-game nap and my girl and daughter woke me up and told me, ‘You are a starter, you are a starter.’ I thought I was dreaming for a second. I was like, what is going on? It was a good way to learn that I made it to the All-Star, and I am thankful.”

Andrew Wiggins’ parents and upbringing

Wiggins was born in Toronto, Canada, on 23 February 1995. Andrew Wiggins’ parents are dad Mitchell Wiggins and mom Marita Payne-Wiggins. Andrew’s father is a former NBA player and shooting guard who had spells with the Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets and Philadelphia 76ers.

Andrew’s mother Marita is a former Olympic track and field sprinter who is originally from Barbados but has Canadian citizenship.

Wiggins’ parents met as student athletes at Florida State University. He has two older brothers, Nick and Mitchell Jr, who both played college basketball, and three sisters: Stephanie, Angelica and Taya.

Meet Andrew Wiggins’ girlfriend, Mychal M Johnson

Andrew Wiggins’ girlfriend is Mychal M Johnson, who he has two children with. They have reportedly been in a relationship since 2013.

Johnson is also a basketball player who formerly played for Notre Dame Fighting Irish women’s basketball, representing the University of Notre Dame.

The couple had their first child on 11 October 2018, daughter Amyah Wiggins.

In April 2021, Mychal went into labour with their second child – a baby girl they named Alayah Milan.

Wiggins told the New York Post ended up delaying Mychal from being induced so he could play for the Warriors against the Wizards on 9 April. Golden State lost the game 110-107.

Mychal can be found on Instagram @mycoool_ where she has 12.5k followers.
