On Friday, November 12, 2010, NBA Phoenix Sun point guard, Steve Nash, and his wife Alejandra welcomed their son Matteo Joel Nash. The couple were blessed with a healthy baby yet the moment was "bittersweet."
Steve and Alejeandra separated "several months ago" and decided to end their five year marriage. Nash issued a statement to Life and Style magazine which read: "I am very thankful and excited that we have a new son, Matteo Nash. Alejandra and the baby are doing fine. But this is a bittersweet moment for my wife and I; after five years, we are now in the process of dissolving our marriage. While we have lived separately for the past several months, we remain fimly committed to raising our children in the most positive, nurturing way possible. I want only good things for all going forward; right now, I'm focused on ensuring that our children understand how much they're loved and adored by us as they continue to adjust to these changes. I would ask that their privacy, and ours as a family, be respected as we move forward. This will be my only statement on this."
Steve and Alejandra also have twin daughters named Lola and Bella born on October 14, 2004.
