Steve Nash Announced Divorce From Wife After She Gave Birth

When a Man Leaves a Woman...After She Gives Birth

Baby announcements don't usually include the demise of a marriage, but for Steve Nash it did. On Friday, the Phoenix Suns basketball player welcomed his third child, a son, and spoke of his divorce from his wife of five years. The couple also have twin daughters, Lola and Bella, 6.
He said:

I am very thankful and excited that we have a new son, Matteo Nash. Alejandra and the baby are doing fine. But this is a bittersweet moment for my wife and I; after five years, we are now in the process of dissolving our marriage. While we have lived separately for the past several months, we remain firmly committed to raising our children in the most positive, nurturing way possible. I want only good things for Ale going forward; right now, I'm focused on ensuring that our children understand how much they're loved and adored by us as they continue to adjust to these changes. I would ask that their privacy, and ours as a family, be respected as we move forward. This will be my only statement on this.

Considering all those involved, do you think the double announcement was appropriate?

i can't say that i agree with the timing of everything that he's saying - it's one thing to have all those life changing things going on, but to muddy a birth announcement with a divorce announcement? that just seems wrong to me.

probably he has some side piece that will be "out" very soon.....this beats the tabloids to the punch of "STEVE NASH CHEATS ON POST PARTUM WIFE!!"

from a PR point of view, it makes sense to send out this msg now rather than 3 months from now when the media would make him out to be an a$$hole for leaving his wife right after child birth. Like he stated, they've been living apart for a few months already.
