NBA player, Grant Hill, and his wife singer, Tamia Marilyn Hill, have been married for more than 20 years now. Today, their love is going strong though it might seem difficult to hold a relationship that long due to their busy and public lives.
However, the couple has managed to stay together since day one and according to what we see in many of the photos posted by Tamia on her Instagram, they still look like lovebirds. In every picture, the couple shows their commitment and love.
20 YEAR MARRIAGE
