Diana Taurasi’s wife Penny Taylor married her in May of 2017. There, that is pretty conclusive evidence these two are in a relationship! Wouldn’t you say? (We’re mocking ourselves here. Less than a year ago, we asked the question aloud if they were together. Yes. Married = together). Since Penny Taylor married a volleyball dude in 2005, people didn’t know what the deal is. Well, now everybody knows! In fact, both People and Sports Illustrated covered the wedding in detail because same-sex athlete marriages are a big deal. I’m curious if Penny Taylor’s ex-husband attended the wedding? Could it be he possibly was not included in all the joy!?
Since she plays on the Phoenix Mercury, Diana Taurasi’s wife joined her at the arena less than 24 hours after the wedding. The Mercury lost to the Dallas Wings, and Diana shot a dismal 1 for 11, but who cares? They enjoyed the wedding and are probably feeling a little distracted by everything. Penny Taylor told the Arizona Republic the wedding became something they both hoped for because their favorite people surrounded them. Penny went on to describe it as a celebration of all the challenges they went through together. Diana herself wore white sneakers and looked pretty stylish in a white suit. Penny dressed in the more traditional girly wedding dress.
Penny Taylor played for fifteen years in the WNBA for both Cleveland and Phoenix. She comes from Melbourne, Australia originally but moved to the United States for basketball. She met Diana because they both played for Phoenix. Diana Taurasi’s wife stands an imposing 6’1″ and once put up 17.8 points per game in the 2007 season. Keep in mind she only played 30 minutes per game when she did that. The lady could score some buckets! In fact, she shot 44% from downtown in 2010! That’s pretty impressive even if the 3-point line in the WNBA in 2010 was only 20 feet and 6 inches. Both these women are shooting the lights out in their relationship.
