Born on the 7th of February 1974, in Johannesburg, South Africa, Steve Nash is arguably the most famous and successful basketball player that Canada has ever produced. From Phoenix Suns to Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Lakers, Nash parted ways with NBA courts in 2015.
History will never forget Mr. Nash’s deeds and accomplishments in NBA. But, that’s a story for another day. Here, the tale is majorly all about the love life of the former professional basketball player, his kids, and net worth. Let’s get down to business, shall we?
Steve Nash’s Wife, Divorce, Girlfriend and Kids
Being a superstar and one of the most iconic figures in the field he made his profession, it was almost impossible for Nash to hide anything about his life from the public. This has been the case with his love life, his romantic relationships have been and would likely remain a thing of public interest.
In view of that, it is a common knowledge that Mr. Nash was once married to Alejandra Amarilla. As far as we can tell, the ex-NBA star met Amarilla way back in 2001, in Manhattan. One thing led to another, they became serious friends and then lovers before they eventually decided to become each other’s life partner.
The Paraguay film producer and the iconic point guard got married sometime in June 2005. But they were already a family before they became man and wife. The previous year (2004) precisely on the 14th of October, the duo welcomed a set of twin daughters they named Bella and Lola. About five years after they got married, it circulated that the couple was expecting another child. Amarilla gave birth to their son Matteo on the 12th day of November 2010.
While everyone celebrated the arrival of the newbie, Nash dropped a bombshell – the love between him and the mother of his twin daughters had gone sour. Announcing the birth of his son to the world, Nash asserted that he was a happy but sad man. He disclosed that he and Alejandra have been living apart for several months and revealed that they have started working towards abandoning their union.
It was pretty much a sad news for Nash’s fans across the world. Many hoped the couple would work out whatever their issue was. To their dismay, the Nash-Alejandra marriage officially collapsed in 2011. The reason for the failed marriage has been widely speculated, hardly can anyone tell what the problem was between the two. Nonetheless, it is believed that his wife cheated on him with his then teammate, Jason Richardson.
Anyway, parting with Alejandra was not the end of love for Nash. He found himself a girlfriend after a few years. Lilla Frederick, an ex-volleyball player for U.S women’s junior team became the love of his life. As the pair had a busy time touring Europe together, the tintinnabulation of the wedding bell was widely anticipated. This happened in March 2016, Nash and Lilla were in Spain when he dropped on one knee and asked for her hand.
A few months later, sometime in September, it was a done deal. Lilla became Nash’s wife. The marriage was consummated and not long afterward, the couple welcomed their first child together, a son they named Luca Sun Nash. Little Sun was born in Los Angeles sometime in July 2017. As at the time of this report, Steve Nash and his family are living in Southern California.
Steve Nash’s Net Worth
While it has circulated that Steve Nash has a net worth of $95 million, it is imperative to point out that the figure is only a rough estimate of the man’s wealth and not an accurate estimate of the value of his wealth.
Frankly, whatever information used to guess or calculate the amount widely quoted as Nash’s net worth, is most likely, not adequate enough to capture the real worth of his riches. The former NBA star has a handful of investment portfolios and, details of the collection of assets are at best, known to him and the managers of his wealth.
Thus, the figure which has been widely believed to represent the value of all the non-financial and financial assets owned by Nash is quite misleading. While we can’t authenticate it as his net worth, here’s what we know – he earned as much as $13,125,000 in a season playing for the Phoenix Suns. His return to the Suns from Dallas Mavericks in the 2004-05 season was facilitated by a $63 million six-year contract.
Meanwhile, he enjoyed lucrative endorsement deals from big shot establishments like Nike and the Swiss luxury watches brand – Raymond Weil to name a few.

You don’t have to make speculations about how tall the Canadian is, here’s the fact – Steve Nash is 3 inches taller than 6 feet. Of course, his height helped him in no small manner to attain the respected status of being one of the finest Point Guard basketball players in the history of North America’s men professional basketball league – National Basket Ball Association (NBA).
