The parents and family life of Chris Paul
Chris Paul’s wife and family often attend games. They were in attendance during the postseason last year when the Suns made the NBA Finals.
After one game, Chris said in an interview with Rachel Nicols: “It feels good. I wish my family and son could come down here.”
He then looked up to his family in the crowd.
After a win against the Denver Nuggets, Chris Paul went into the crowd to celebrate with his parents. Chris Paul’s parents were once again spotted in the crowd supporting their son. Charles and Robin Paul watched the entire playoffs.
Charles and Robin Paul raised Chris and his brother CJ in North Carolina. His family were the ones who gave him the nickname ‘CP3’ before he even got to the NBA.
The nickname was given to him because his father and brother all share the initials ‘CP’.

Chris also mentioned his wife and children. Jada Crawley grew up in North Carolina and they officially met at Wake Forest, where CP3 played two seasons. The pair were just 18 years old when they started dating, and have been together ever since.
