UPDATE 05/26/2014: Meet Gordon Hayward’s wife Robyn Hayward.
Though the two have been together for a relatively quick period of time, and engaged for an even quicker period of time, the two tied the knot over Memorial Day Weekend, 2014. Plenty of Hayward’s Jazz teammates attended the nuptials, and with his impending restricted free agency, it may be a farewell of sorts for the shooting guard guaranteed to have plenty of suitors. Hope Robyn is up for a move, because our money says Boston is in his future to reunite with college coach Brad Stevens. With an 8 figure payday on the horizon, and a brand new bride, everything’s turning up Gordon.
Congratulations to the newlyweds.
On the surface, Utah Jazz shooting guard Gordon Hayward seems like he belongs in Utah. The nice white kid from the small school (Butler), who loves shooting threes. For his sake, we hope that Gordon Hayward’s girlfriend, who is soon to be Gordon Hayward’s wife Robin Van Vliet likes Salt Lake City, because she’ll be sticking around for a while.
The last we knew, Gordon Hayward’s girlfriend Kolbi Killingback, was in the picture having dated since college. In the time that’s passed, Hayward and Van Vliet have begun dating, and proudly took to Twitter and Instagram to announce the news on Christmas Day:
Merry Christmas to everyone out there! Hope it’s a good one! Mine was especially good bc SHE SAID YES!!!! So thrilled I get to marry my best friend and such an amazing person @robynvanvliet! I love you!!! – @gdhayward – Instagram

Hayward isn’t shy about going public with his relationship, often posting pictures of Van Vliet and telling the world how much he’s missing her while on the road. Not much else is known about Van Vliet, but Hayward is certainly proud to be marrying her. Congratulations to the newly engaged couple.
