How did Giannis Antetokounmpo and Mariah Riddlesprigger meet?
It goes back to 2014 when Giannis Antetokounmpo who was in his sophomore year met Mariah Riddlesprigger who was working as an intern in NBA for the Philadelphia 76ers. The two met during that time and started dating each other before Giannis became a rising star of the NBA. Mariah has been together with Giannis from the time he started his professional career till today.
However, at the start, they kept their relationship quite private following which they started giving insights by posting pictures of them on social media. From posting birthday notes to enjoying vacations and attending events together. Besides this, Giannis and Mariah last year partnered with The Milwaukee Diaper for a diaper fund ‘The BIG Give Back’. The two are working together to fundraise the program by raising $50,000 bringing basic items to every corner of Milwaukee.
The two who are now proud parents to two sons and busy with their professional life do take out time for one another. Both Giannis and Mariah have supported each other from the start and the growth in their relationship are evident today.
