German professional basketball player for the Dallas Mavericks of the NBA, Dirk Nowitzki’s wife is the beautiful Jessica Olsson. Dirk is an alumnus of Röntgen Gymnasium and the DJK Würzburg basketball club. He was chosen as the ninth pick in the 1998 NBA draft by the Milwaukee Bucks and immediately traded to the Mavericks. He had been with the Mavericks since then. Nowitzki is considered one of the greatest power forwards in basketball history and also the best foreign player that ever played in the NBA.
The life of Dirk and Jessica
First of all we would like to tell you that Jessica is a Kenyan! That’s right. There’s so much multi-cultural thing happening right there which is actually amazing. Love is sure beyond any land or culture. When two people are supposed to be together, they end up being together.
The couple first met when Dirk was on a vacation in Scotland in 2010. Dirk first confirmed his engagement with Jessica during an interview with the BaD show on Dallas SportsRadio 1310. The couple got married on July 20 2012 and at that time there were rumors that these two had two separate marriage ceremonies, a traditional African ceremony and another in German. We are not sure about that but according to the official news they got married at Dirk’s Dallas-area home in Preston Hollow, Tex. They spent their honeymoon in the Caribbean.
The couple has two children, a boy and a girl. Daughter Malaika was born in July, 2013 and son Max was born in March, 2015. On being asked about his children Kirk says that he feels lucky and blessed to have them. He says fatherhood is an amazing feeling and maybe a third child will be joining these two soon! Yea, keep the family growing Dirk! Dirk likes to call his son by the nickname Maximus. he surely is a Gladiator fan, we can tell. Also, that will be the first case in history where a nickname is longer than the actual name. Alright, we are just kidding!

The cultural fun
Recently, we heard from the Newstime Africa that Dirk and Jessica had a marriage ceremony with traditional Kikuyu clothes. We think that they are surely celebrating their heritage very nicely. One more thing that can be guaranteed is that their children are going to learn a about a great deal of cultures as it runs wonderfully through their own family.
What do you think about this amazing couple. We think that these two look as if they are made for each other. Also we wonder how their life is like at home being from different cultures. What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below.
