Damian Lillard has proven that he is one of the best basketball players of this generation. He has scored more points than anyone else in Portland Trail Blazers history, which says a lot about how good of a player he is. Even so, Dame has never won an NBA championship and has never even made it to the finals.
The main reason for this is that the Blazers haven’t had many good players over the years. Because of how far he has gone on the court, people are also interested in what he does outside of it.
Everyone in the NBA knows that Dame and his wife Kay’la Hanson have been married for a while. Damian Jr., Kali Emma Lee, and Kalii Laheem, who are twins, were born to the couple. Their kids were born before Dame and Kay’la got married, which is an interesting fact. This leads us to one question: When did Dame and Kay’la Hanson get married?

Who is Damian Lillard‘s Wife?
Hanson and Damian have been married for almost two years. Lillard won an Olympic gold medal in 2021, but that wasn’t the only good thing that happened that year. There were a lot of famous people at the wedding, like well-known rapper Snoop Dogg, CJ McCollum, and Blazer’s teammate Jusuf Nurkic, among others. At Lillard and Hanson’s wedding, they even got to see the great Snoop Dogg perform.
People might wonder how Damian and Hanson met, but it turns out that they fell in love in college. Dame went to Weber State University, in case you didn’t know. Here is where he got his degree in professional sales. Even though he put his education on hold to join the NBA, Lillard made sure to finish school three years later. He played basketball in college for Weber State, where he averaged 18.6 points and had a 3P% of.390.
When she met Dame, Kay’la was also going to the same college. She was in school to become a nurse while her boyfriend played basketball. No one knows when they met, but the Blazers guard got down on one knee in 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic. The couple seems to be doing well and raising their three kids while Dame keeps trying to win his first NBA title.
Does Damian Lillard have Kids?
The NBA has a wide range of athletes who all have their own lives. Some, like Stephen Curry and LeBron James, are family men with more than 2 kids. Some, like Kevin Durant and James Harden, have decided to stay single for now.
Having said that, Damian Lillard is a man who cares about his family. He has three kids, not just one. Damian Jr. is the name of the oldest boy. They also have a son named Kalii and a daughter named Kali.
It looks like Dame and Kay’la had all of these kids without getting married. Damian Jr. was born in 2018, the twins were born in January 2021, and the couple got married in September of the same year.

Most of Kay’la Hanson’s life has been private and out of the public eye. She is a registered nurse and also runs a business called “DIPPED” which sells nail polish. Hanson went to Legacy State High School and then Weber State University, where she got her degree.
Before they got married, Damian and Kay’la had been together for more than ten years. We could say that she was already part of his family because of this. Also, the Trail Blazers star has a strong support system. We wish this long-time couple a happy life together as husband and wife.
