Luka Doncic's Girlfriend, Anamaria Goltes, is a successful Slovenian fashion and lifestyle content editor. Although she and Doncic only began their relationship in 2016, they have known each other since their pre-teen years.
Since joining the Dallas Mavericks, Luka Doncic's fan base has grown monumentally. Many have become interested not only in his professional career but also in his life outside the court.
The Mavericks' franchise player is thriving in his career and his love life with his longtime girlfriend, Anamaria Goltes.
Anamaria Goltes Is Active on Instagram
Thanks to her social media account, much is known about Goltes' personal life. Her Instagram bio states her title as a fashion and lifestyle content editor with over 162,000 followers. Her passion for fashion paved the way for Goltes to launch her own shop where she models clothes.
Beyond her career, Goltes is a fitness enthusiast, focusing on cardio and weight training. Although she does not post much about her workouts on Instagram, Goltes previously revealed that she likes maintaining an active lifestyle.
Although busy with her own successes, Goltes remains supportive of her boyfriend and calls herself his number-one fan.
Luka Doncic and Anamaria Knew Each Other since They Were 12
Goltes, who is also Slovenian, met Doncic at the young age of 12 at Croatia's seaside. They had mutual friends back then who are still the same group of people they hold dear.
They began their romantic relationship in 2016 but briefly parted ways in 2018 before Doncic was drafted by his team. They eventually found their way back into each other's arms and even spent the lockdown together.
Doncic was only eight when he started playing basketball with Olimpija teams. When he turned 13, the athlete's career became more serious, signing with Real Madrid and earning the MVP award at the Spain Championship.
At that time, Doncic was waiting out the pandemic for his games to resume while travel restrictions prohibited Goltes from flying home. Nevertheless, she liked living in Dallas as it reminded her of home. According to the New York Post, she said:
"I love that I get to spend some time with Luka [and their dogs] in the quarantine. We don't get to spend that many days together because we are always working on our individual things, so being able to spend time together feels very good."
The duo is going strong in their relationship as of writing. Although Goltes' social media presence is most felt in Slovenia, she also has many followers from the United States.
A Little about Luka Doncic
Goltes' boyfriend is finding great success in the country as well. His passion and talent for the game run through his veins, having been raised by a father who was a professional basketball player in Slovenia.
Doncic's godfather, Radoslav Nesterovic, was also a known NBA player who won a title for the San Antonio Spurs. Doncic was only eight when he started playing basketball with Olimpija teams.
When he turned 13, the athlete's career became more serious, signing with Real Madrid and earning the MVP award at the Spain Championship. His career quickly advanced in 2018 when he was selected third overall in the NBA Draft.
He has shown dedication and talent in the game he loves, ranking 11th all-time with 26 triple-doubles in the league. Although dedicated to his craft, Doncic also ensures he spends time with his girlfriend.
Many successful athletes manage to balance their career and personal life, including NFL quarterback Michael Vick. Although Michael retired in 2017, he was able to raise a family while focusing on his career. Michael married Kijafah Vick in 2012 and had four children together.
Like Goltes, Michael's partner has her successes. She is the executive producer of "The Michael Vick Project" and "Baller Wives." She is also an entrepreneur with a company producing accessories, PnkElephant.
