Let’s meet Giannis Antetokounmpo’s girlfriend and baby mama Mariah Riddlesprigger as the NBA star continues to add to his legacy.

Giannis Antetokounmpo has had a meteoric rise from relative unknown to NBA champion and, arguably, the best player in the world.

The Greek Milwaukee Bucks star is undoubtedly one of the faces of the league and one of the most recognisable sports stars in the world.

While Giannis is winning on court, he also appears to be winning off-court, spending the majority of his times with his doting girlfriend and children.

What we know about Giannis Antetokounmpo’s girlfriend, Mariah Riddlesprigger

Giannis Antetokounmpo’s girlfriend is Mariah Riddlesprigger. Riddlesprigger was born in Fresno, California, on 17 September 1992, and attended Rice University in Houston, Texas.

Mariah was born in the US and is American by nationality. She is of African-American ethnicity.

Riddlesprigger, at 5ft 10in, stands much shorter than her boyfriend Giannis, who is 6ft 11in. We don’t actually know when they first started dating but they have been together for a number of years.

The couple have lots in common, including their mutual love of sport. Mariah played volleyball at college and received multiple honours from Rice University for her on-court performances.

The NBA star’s other half graduated from Rice with a degree in Sport Management and Sociology. After Mariah graduated she worked as a basketball operations intern for the 76ers.

She is into fashion and has her own clothing line

Notably, Mariah currently has her own clothing line, ‘Sincerely, Mariah’. Commenting on the apparel, the 28-year-old said: “That’s how I express how I feel. T-shirts, sweats, so I thought what’s a better way to show who I am and get my message out there at the same time.”

During an interview with Wisconsin Rapids Daily Tribune, Riddlesprigger explained that she first started working on the brand while Antetokounmpo was in the NBA bubble, which left her feeling isolated.

“I was like, this is something I need to do for me, I know this will help me feel more like me again,” she said.

The couple have two children together – Liam and Maverick

Giannis Antetokounmpo and baby mama Mariah have two children together – sons Liam Charles Antetokounmpo, born February 2020, and Maverick Shai Antetokounmpo, born 18 August 2021.

The couple have shared plenty of cute snaps with their kids and they continue to be an incredibly adorable family. The four of them also attended the premiere of Rise. Rise is a Disney+ biopic about Giannis and his two brothers on their journey to the NBA.

Mariah actively posts her merch on her Instagram, @sincerelyymariah, where she boasts over 140k followers.
