Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green is a proud father once again.
Green and his fiancée, Hazel Renee, recently welcomed their fifth child into the world. Green — who is already entering his ninth season with the Golden State Warriors — and Renee each had children from previous relationships.
Soon, Green will return to the Warriors and team up with Stephen Curry on the court. For now, Green wants his fans to know how proud he is of his fiancée for fighting through an eye-popping 27 hours of labor.
Draymond Green has become a Golden State Warriors great
A second-round pick in 2012, Draymond Green has grown into one of the most impactful players in Golden State Warriors history.
Through his first eight seasons, Green averaged nine points, 6.9 rebounds, five assists, 1.4 steals, and 1.1 blocks in 576 games and 428 starts. Although those numbers don’t pop off the page, it is essential to realize that Green was often the third or fourth scoring option on a team featuring Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Stephen Curry.
A three-time All-Star, Green earned Defensive Player of the Year after the 2016-17 season. Green also appeared on the All-Defensive team in five straight seasons.
An excellent postseason player, Green has averaged 12.5 points, 9.3 rebounds, 6.1 assists, 1.6 steals, and 1.5 blocks in 123 career playoff games. Green enters the 2020-21 season with three NBA championship rings.
Life has been good for Green off the court, too. Green signed a five-year, $118 million contract extension in 2019 and is in a long-term reltionship with entertainer Hazel Renee.
Green and his fiancée just welcomed their fifth child
Draymond Green and his fiancée, Hazel Renee, have something to celebrate beyond the basketball court.
The two recently welcomed their fifth total child and the first they’ve had together. Green and Renee each have children from previous relationships.
Green posted a photo on Instagram of his fiancée, writing that she “re-wrote the guide on how pregnancies should be.”
“The cherry on top was 27 hours, No Meds! Goat Mama B! Then came our sweet bundle of Joy! SCG! Thank you! Thank You! Thank you! I love you for life!”
Green also used the hashtag #TheMob5, referring to the five children.
In a normal year, Green could fully celebrate his fiancée giving birth. This year has been anything but normal, though.
Things may have gotten bad for Draymond Green
Draymond Green already had a short turnaround from his fiancée’s childbirth to the start of the NBA season.
Golden State will officially tip its 2020-21 season on December 22 against Kevin Durant and the Nets. The Warriors begin the preseason on Saturday, December 12, against the Denver Nuggets.
Green may not be on the court for the latter game, however. Warriors coach Steve Kerr hinted in a recent press conference that Green and rookie big man James Wiseman are missing training camp because of positive COVID-19 tests.
Golden State had not officially confirmed the positive tests as of publication.
Whenever Green does return to the court, he and Stephen Curry will try bringing the Warriors back to the postseason. Golden State struggled through injuries in the pandemic-affected season and didn’t participate in the NBA bubble.
