Manu Ginobili comes from a basketball family. His older brother played professionally in Argentina, while his younger brother played professionally in Spain. His father coached in Bahia Blanca while also helping Manu learn to play the game. Manu is the only Ginobili to bring his game to America, where he’s also brought his wife.
Manu Ginobili and wife Marianela (formerly Orono) tied the knot in the summer of 2004 in Argentina. It appears that the Spurs are the greatest wedding gift givers of all time, as just days later, Manu signed a 6 year, $52,000,000 contract extension.
Manu and Marianela had their first children on May 16, 2010. Marianela gave birth to twin boys, Dante and Nicola.
