A few years after they started their relationship, Paul and Julie welcomed their first child, Prianna Lee Pierce, on April 4th, 2008.

JULIE AND PAUL TIED THE KNOT IN 2010

After dating for five years and welcoming their first child, Julie and Paul decided it was time to settle down. In 2010, the couple got married in a private ceremony that had about only 80 guests present.

The wedding was held in California at the Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Coast, California, and Prianna, who was already two at the time, served as the flower girl.

THE COUPLE WELCOMED A SECOND GIRL IN 2011

Paul and Julie welcomed their second child and daughter, Adrian Tanya Pierce, in 2011, and from all indications, she is doted on by her parents. In celebration of her 5th birthday in 2016, Adrian received a llama as a gift from her famous father.

THEY WELCOMED THEIR ONLY SON IN 2013

Two years after the birth of Adrian, the couple welcomed their last child, son Prince Paul Pierce on April 2, 2013. At the time of Prince's arrival, Paul reportedly implied that his son might be a basketballer just like him.

However, during an interview with Fatherly, in 2018, Paul revealed that Prince had taken up interest and was already playing softball.

Not only was Paul a legend of the NBA, but he also doubles as an equally amazing family man who loves nothing more than being a husband and a father.
