Kevin Garnett’s wife Brandi Garnett somehow manages to see a different KG than the rest of us. The man is legit terrifying on the court but apparently though, by the looks of what he’s been able to do off the court, he’s a different man there. Kevin Garnett is married to Brandi Garnett (formerly Brandi Padilla), where they were betrothed in a private ceremony in California in 2004. The wedding was actually the impetus to him missing the 2004 Athens Olympics. Brandi is the sister-in-law to famed Def Jam music producer Jimmy Jam Harris, as her sister Lisa Padilla is married to him.
The couple currently resides in a $4.6 Million, 8,000 square foot home in Concord, MA. They have one child together, whose given name we do not know (and trust me,… we’ve looked). KG is fiercely guarded over his private life, and has only called his daughter by a couple of nicknames like Peanut or Boo Boo. By now, you’ve probably seen a Garnett post game interview which he always caps off with a stern warning to his daughter “Go to bed, Boo Boo.” So what’s the deal with the nicknames anyways, Kevin? In an interview with the Huffington Post, he explains:
That’s my way of having code in speaking to the people that mean the most to me. And them not having their own personal names out, because I’m a nickname freak, and a lot of times when I’m doing an interview I always like to say hello, but sometimes I just throw the nickname in there and they know exactly who they are.”
On a personal note, the guys running and writing this site are privileged to attend a ton of Celtics games. In our travels, we’ve seen Kevin Garnett’s wife Brandi Garnett a few times. She is unequivocally even more attractive in person. Congrats to KG. Seriously, dude.
