After the Warriors star was seen celebrating with his youngest daughter recently, we take a look at Draymond Green’s baby mamas, Hazel Renee and Jelissa Hardy.

The Golden State Warriors are into the NBA Finals after beating the Dallas Mavericks 4-1 in the Western Conference Finals. It is the Dubs’ sixth Finals appearance in eight years – the first team to do so since Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls.

Steph Curry and Klay Thompson are the obvious stars on the Warriors, but Draymond Green continues to prove himself as the glue that holds the team together.

Draymond Green celebrates with his daughter after reaching Finals

The Warriors celebrated on their home floor at Chase Center after winning Game 5 vs the Mavs 120-110. Players were joined by family as they were presented with the Western Conference Finals trophy by Inside the NBA’s Ernie Johnson.

During the presentation, Draymond Green could be seen celebrating with his youngest daughter, who was born in 2020. It is not the first time some of Green’s children have joined him on the court. Here he is with daughter Kyla and son DJ in 2019.

Meet Draymond Green’s baby mama and wife Hazel Renee

The Warriors star was also joined by his wife and baby mama, Hazel Renee, who is an actress. Born on 31 March 1986, Hazel has appeared in a number of television shows including hit drama Empire on Fox, The Real Housewives Of Atlanta, and VH1’s Basketball Wives series.

Hazel has over 101k followers on Instagram @lovehazelrenee.

Like Draymond, Hazel has a daughter from a previous relationship, Olive Jay, who was born in 2015. Green treats Olive as though she’s his own daughter and has expressed his love for her on Instagram:

Draymond proposed to Hazel in 2019 and in December 2020 the couple welcomed a child of their own. The Warriors star paid tribute to his wife on Instagram for getting through the gruelling 27 hours before giving birth.

He wrote: “Haze, you rewrote the guide on how pregnancies should be. You the 🐐! The cherry on top was 27 hours, no meds! Goat Mama B! Then came our sweet bundle of joy! SCG! Thank You! Thank you! I love you for life!”

Green’s youngest daughter was the one he was celebrating with recently after winning the Western Conference Finals:

Green also has another baby mother, ex-girlfriend Jelissa Hardy

Draymond Green also has another baby mama, former girlfriend Jelissa Hardy, whom he dated for a number of years.

Jelissa Hardy is from Woodbridge, VA and attended Heritage High School in Saginaw, Michigan, which is also where Draymond went. It is believed they started dating around this time (2007). Like Draymond, Jelissa also went to Michigan University where she got her degree in English.

Jelissa was a model for a while and enjoyed basketball before she had to stop playing due to back injuries.

Jelissa was with Draymond throughout his early NBA career, from him being drafted in 2012 to winning his first NBA championship with the Warriors in 2016. They had a son DJ in 2016, and later welcomed another child, daughter Kyla Green, before eventually splitting up.

In 2017 Hardy reportedly became a personal trainer at Jamz Trainings, located in Oakland, California, where she provides hardcore, bootcamp-like workouts for her clients.
