The lovely life of Deron and Amy
Amy and Deron have known each other since they were in second grade. You will be surprised to know that Amy used to play basketball too. We guess there have been common interest between them since the beginning. They started dating in high school and after dating for a long time decided to spend their life together forever. This is some fairy tale material right there!
The amazing couple took their wedding vows in 2006. They have been blessed with four children, two daughters – Denae and Daija, and two sons – Deron Jr. “DJ” and Desmond. Denae was born in 2003 and Daija was born in 2006.
DJ is their adopted son who was later diagnosed with autism in 2012. He was born in Brooklyn and was adopted through an agency in Utah. Amy says that Deron and she thought we were done with our two kids and they wanted a boy. As Amy herself was adopted, they decided to adopt a boy.
Amy says that DJ was always drawn more towards Deron. Even whey she and Dj used to come to the locker room, the PR people would laugh at her in the hallway. They thought she was DJ’s babysitter.
Deron is a sensitive guy. He has tattoos of the names of his wife and children tattooed on the top and bottom of his wrists.
Social Work by the couple
In 2007, Amy and Deron established their foundation, The Point of Hope Foundation. Its primary goal was to help improve the quality of life for families and children.
Home Sweet Home
Lately, Amy and Deron got a home for themselves and the children in Dallas. Amy says that she loves New York but Dallas offered them to have a bigger yard for their children. She says that she was stressed about moving as it was difficult to find a place in Dallas and they have to look for two years before finding the perfect place.
Amy has been a supportive wife. Deron says that Amy was comfortable either ways. He adds, “She just wanted me to make a decision based on what I felt was comfortable with basketball. She was happy wherever. She was really great about it.“
