UPDATE:07/08/2013: We like seeing popular athletes stay together for a long time. In the case of Jrue Holliday’s wife Lauren Cheney (or is it Lauren Cheney’s husband Jrue Holliday?), that couple has been together since college. Despite busy, globetrotting schedules for both Jrue and Lauren, the couple has stayed together, while also openly celebrating in the other’s success. We at PlayerWives.com have been rooting for these two, and it was nice to see that the couple got married on July 6, 2013. The outdoor event was attended by friends, family and teammates alike. Congratulations to the newlyweds.
Jrue and Lauren went to UCLA together, and have been dating since. While there have been online discussions for months about the two, it really broke into mainstream news during Team USA’s exciting win over Brazil in extra time. Jrue, in Germany to watch the tournament, engaged in a Twitter love exchange back and forth with Lauren:
@laurencheney8: The best boyfriend in the world @Jrue_Holiday11, thank you for being apart of this. I love you!
@Jrue_Holliday11: @laurencheney8 i love you too.. i wouldnt miss it for the world
Congratulations to Team USA for the win, and I guess Lauren and Jrue for having no qualms about publicly declaring their love.
