JB Bernstein’s wife Brenda Paauwei-Navori is the mother of their now five year-old daughter, Delphine. And for those who don’t know, JB Bernstein is at the center of the move Million Dollar Arm. According to Review Journal, the actual JB Bernstein was anything but reticent and annoyed at the prospect of dating Brenda Baaweu-Navori (in the movie he rolls his eyes at the thought). JB’s said he didn’t deserve to date models based exclusively on his looks. He’s credited Brenda with changing him to a more soft and lovable fellow. But this transformation is still “underway.”
Brenda herself was born in 1970 and her meeting with Mr. Bernstein was moved forward by ten months in the film. She was with him at the initial screening of the film when he overheard someone in the crowd comment about his character, “this guy is such a dick!” You can’t help but laugh about something like that and then die a little inside later, in a quiet moment. JB Bernstein’s wife Brenda Paauwei-Navori was told she’d get a copy of the DVD of the movie every year for Valentine’s Day since it’s essentially the story of their romance. He seemed to take pride in the fact that it was a Disney movie. She’s more impressed with the fact that they cast Jon Hamm to play JB and, aside from JB’s mom, is one of the few people who think it’s a perfect match.
In the movie, there’s a Thanksgiving dinner and Brenda walks into the room in a beautiful blue dress. According to JB, that’s exactly how it happened in real life. All of the details in that scene are exactly as it happened in real life. Marriage was an inevitability. He bought her the blue dress while he was in India doing the whole scouting thing. Brenda actually works as a corporate sales manager for a big British conglomerate now. JB Bernstein’s wife knows both Barry Sanders and Barry Bonds and during her wedding to JB, the athletes posed for a picture with the couple.
