Giannis Antetokounmpo is enjoying peace and relaxation with his wife Mariah Riddlesprigger. After seeing his season with the Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA end early, the Greek Freak put basketball aside to spend time with his beloved.
Mariah posted photos from the couple’s vacations in Hawaii, specifically Maui, showing the places the two travelled to.
In fact, it appears that Mariah is heavily pregnant, as can be seen from the photos, and Liam and Maverick-Sy should be expecting a little sibling.
Antetokounmpo’s vacation with his wife:
While not much is known about the early days of the couple's relationship, the NBA champion and fashion entrepreneur are currently a family of four, having welcomed their sons Liam Charles and Maverick Shai in 2020 and 2021, respectively. They are also not shy when it comes to sharing their love on social media, often posting Instagram tributes for one another and providing glimpses into their family life.
On Dec. 7, 2022, Riddlesprigger penned a sweet message for Antetokounmpo's birthday. "Giannis, I seriously adore everything about you. My life would be dull without your light. The father you are to our boys is breathtaking. Happy Birthday My Love I promise this year is going to be magical 💛," she wrote next to a carousel of images of the pair with their sons.
In May 2023, they revealed on Instagram that they are expecting a third baby. "Our dreams becoming reality 🤍," they captioned the joint post.
In May 2021, Riddlesprigger launched her own apparel brand Sincerely, Mariah, a collection of loungewear pieces inspired "by all of the remarkable people" she's met over the years. 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.
"I was like, this is something I need to do for me, I know this will help me feel more like me again," she shared, reflecting on how she was struggling with feeling isolated amid the COVID-19 pandemic in addition to being a new mom.
While Riddlespringer hopes her collection will help spread positivity — the pieces are embroidered with messages like "undeniably worthy" and "unapologetically me" — she also wanted it to reflect her own wardrobe.
"It's stuff you can wear around the house, you can wear just running to the store," she told the publication. "I'm big on comfort. If you see me around Milwaukee, I'm most likely in yoga pants or sweats and a sweatshirt. That's my go-to, so I don't want to stray too far from who I am."
To celebrate the accomplishment, Riddlesprigger shared several posts on Instagram, including a touching tribute to Antetokounmpo, whom she credited for motivating and supporting her throughout the process. "His words resonated with me and they're the reason I did not give up when I was tired, or when I got bored or wrapped up in motherhood and my personal issues," she wrote in the caption. "Anytime I wanted to wave the white flag I imagined his thick lovable accent challenging me to be the best version of myself. Giannis, thank you for believing in me, inspiring me and simply being you!"
Antetokounmpo also celebrated the brand's launch on his Twitter, writing, "sincerelymariah.com has launched! I'm so proud of you babe 🤎 @mariahdanae15."
The couple welcomed their first son together, Liam, on Feb. 11, 2020. Liam is regularly spotted cheering on Antetokounmpo at his games alongside Riddlesprigger and was even on hand to celebrate his dad's victory when the Bucks took home the NBA title in July 2021.
In September 2021, Riddlesprigger announced that she and Antetokounmpo had welcomed their second child together on Instagram. The proud mom posted a sweet photo of Liam giving his newborn brother a kiss, writing in the caption, "My boys 💛 Being your mama is my greatest joy! I hear it's national son's day and I'll take any chance I get to celebrate you two little sour patch kids!"
A few months later, she revealed the name of their second son on Instagram: Maverick Shai Antetokounmpo.
On Feb. 10, 2023, Riddlesprigger marked Liam's 3rd birthday with a sweet Instagram post. She included a cute picture of the boy playing with a basketball, a snap of him sitting in a chair as well as a photo of Liam and his brother greeting their dad. "To the sweetest, silliest soul," she wrote in the caption. "Can I still call you my baby? 🥺 HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY BIG BOY. I love you more than words can ever express!"
She added: "Here's to many more paw patrol marathons and dance parties!! 💛🎉🤴🏽"
