Jada Crawley is a renowned fashion designer, philanthropist, businesswoman, and of course, the wife of NBA star, Chris Paul. Since basketball occupies almost the same status in the United States as football does in Brazil, it’s no surprise that its players enjoy so much visibility and so does anyone associated with them; especially as a girlfriend or spouse. This is exactly where this beautiful mother of two finds herself today.
Although Jada Crawley has also built a name for herself, her basketball-wife-status puts her on the wings of her husband’s popularity.
Jada Crawley’s Bio
Jada Crawley was born Jada Alexia Crawley in Winston-Salem, North Carolina USA, on February 16, 1984, to a middle-class family. Although the specifics of her early childhood, siblings, parents or what they did for a living is not known, we know she spent the greater part of her formative years in North Carolina; as did her husband. Growing up, Crawley attended Mount Tabor High School in Winston-Salem. Following her graduation from high school, she proceeded to Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where she earned a Bachelor’s degree; albeit her course of study is not known.
It was during her time in college that the beautiful Afro-American girl would catch the eyes of her future husband. The duo met at a basketball game and picked it up from there. That was in 2003 and Crawley was only 19 at the time. While many would think Chris Paul was the first to make a move, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. In fact, Crawley had asked a mutual friend to get her introduced to Paul who played on the school team at the time.
After dating for eight years, the couple made their union official in 2011. Now a family woman, Crawley spent much of her time at home, behind the public eye, tending for the kids. But then, kids grow. Crawley can be seen with her husband and kids at several public events today. What’s more, she manages a blooming fashion enterprise and spreads her profits into causes that help alleviate suffering and pain for the less privileged.
As a founding member of the Chris Paul Foundation — an establishment that seeks to bridge that wide inequality gap between privileged and underprivileged youths, Crawley serves as host to the program Jada Paul Prom Dress Giveaway. The annual program gathers senior year students in high school for boot camps in which they are trained in vocations like make-up, braid bar, fashion shows, and the likes. Asides that, the participants are at liberty to choose from a variety of prom dresses, shoes, and pieces of jewellery; items required for their prom night.
Jada Crawley has been married to NBA player, Chris Paul since September 10, 2011. The couple met back in 2003 and after what many describe as long-term dating, the couple walked down the aisle eight years after their first meeting. The star-studded wedding was nothing close to low-key as it was attended by some of the most popular faces in basketball. Not to mention LeBron James who featured as one of the groomsmen. Together, they have two children. A boy, Christopher Emmanuel Paul II (b. May 23, 2009) and a girl, Camryn Alexis Paul (b. August 16, 2012). In an almost predictable stroke of fate, Christopher has chosen to go the way of his father; to play professional basketball.
