Kyrie Irving's girlfriend, Marlene Wilkerson, also known as Golden, is an accomplished businesswoman, model, and lifestyle guru. She was doing well for herself before she started dating the NBA player.

Marlene Wilkerson and Kyrie Irving were first linked together in 2018 and reportedly started their relationship around that time. One year later, she was spotted with an engagement ring, leading to rumors that they had gotten engaged.

In 2021, the couple welcomed their first child together. However, that was the second child of the Brooklyn Nets professional basketball player.

Wilkerson, a French-speaking native of Los Angeles, has the Leo zodiac sign, as she was born on August 18, 1993, and is about 5 feet 6 inches tall.

She is from a small family and has only one brother. In 2015, she graduated from college with a degree in Business Marketing and said that getting her degree was not difficult because of the school she attended.

Despite believing that education is super important, her formal degree has not benefited her. However, she is constantly reading and learning more than she did in college.

Kyrie Irving and Marlene Were First Seen Publicly in 2018

There is no information on when Wilkerson and Irving started dating, but they went out together for the first time in 2018 when she attended his invitational tournament on December 17, 2018.

The program is one of the few he sponsors, and for the tournament, he partnered with Nike to encourage young kids to pursue basketball and develop their talent.

There are reports that she and the NBA star may have met before their relationship began. This report is because she was romantically linked to Dexter Strickland, who played basketball with Irving at St. Patrick High School.

Barely one year after they first went out in public, there were rumors that Kyrie Irving had proposed to Wilkerson after the press saw her wearing a massive engagement ring.

Irving and Wilkerson [...] welcomed their second baby on October 4, 2022.

The couple did not address the rumors, but as they went to New York City for the weekend, the paparazzi accosted them by their vehicle and congratulated them on their engagement.

Marlene Had a Natural Home Birth for Their 1st Baby

Wilkerson and Irving welcomed their first child, Kaire, in June 2021. The couple who had kept their pregnancy a secret announced the home birth of their son via her YouTube channel, "The Find Guru," in a video titled "Our Pregnancy Journey."

The 11-minute-plus video featured shots of the couple throughout the experience. At the start of the video, they wrote that the guided meditation was provided by Tiffanny Burns and had the narration done by Jamarah Amani.

Wilkerson further noted that the guided meditation assisted her through her most sacred journey. The narrator said:

"A meditation for Black women, Black mamas and Black families. Chosen and given [...] You are enough [...] You are loved [...] You are whole [...] You are peace [...] You are divine."

Towards the middle of the video, Wilkerson is seen in the bathtub as she goes into labor, and Irving joins her shortly. Soon, their son's cries are heard as the NBA star says he's got him.

However, the video never revealed when their son was delivered neither did they state his name. After delivery, Wilkerson and Irving thanked their loved ones and the medical personnel that saw them through the journey.

They also dedicated the video to indigenous women urging them to reclaim their bodies and heal their lineage through sacred natural birth.

In October 2022, Brooklyn Nets writer for The Athletic, Alex Schiffer, took to his Twitter to announce the good news he got from Steve Nash, the Canadian professional basketball coach for Brooklyn Nets.

He tweeted that Irving and Wilkerson, whom he referred to as the player's wife, had welcomed their second baby on October 4, 2022.
