Andrew Wiggins and Mychal Johnson Share Two Daughters
Andrew Wiggins and Mychal Johnson have welcomed two children in the course of their relationship. The couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Amyah, in December 2018. They then welcomed a second daughter, Alayah Milan, in April 2021. The couple and their children make their home in San Francisco, where Wiggins plays for the Golden State Warriors. Mychal and the girls often make it to the basketball court to watch their daddy in action. Mychal and her man also make sure to organize lavish birthday parties and other celebrations for their children.
Wiggins is very much in love with his family and does not bother to hide it. In an exclusive interview with E! News in July 2022, he described being a girl dad as the best feeling in the world. In his own words “There’s nothing like it. I’ve got two little princesses that I love unconditionally. Every day is just the best.”
The NBA rookie of the year for the 2014/2015 season has also revealed that no matter how bad a day he has had, he always looks forward to going home as his daughters will be waiting for him. According to him, they are always happy and always in a good mood. He feels so much love for them, which keeps him going.
Andrew Wiggins has also lavished praise on Mychal. According to him, the fact that she also played basketball means that she understands the sacrifice and everything else he goes through. For him, she is amazing and has always been there for the kids, raising them to be perfect children. He, therefore, respects her a lot, as she makes stuff happen.
Wiggins’ commitment to his family was also highlighted back in 2020. At the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, Andrew Wiggins was one of the NBA players who refused to the vaccine. He later relented, but pointed out his hope that the vaccine wouldn’t affect his abilities so that he would be able to play for a long time and make good money for his family.
Andrew Wiggins and His Girlfriend Faced Cheating Controversy in 2023
Andrew Wiggins and Mychal Johnson are a celebrity couple, and they have also faced one of the side effects of being in the public eye, which is having unpleasant rumors spread about them. In February 2023, Andrew Wiggins was forced to take time off to deal with an undisclosed family matter. This family matter wasn’t revealed, and his coach stated that he didn’t know when the forward would be back.
The rumor mill sprang into action and started speculating that Mychal Johnson must have cheated on Wiggins with someone close to him, like a teammate. The rumor persisted so much that Mychal had to react, sharing messages on her social media handle all throughout March. In a Twitter post, she dubbed the internet a sick place with a vomiting emoji. In another, she stated that the rumors were the farthest thing from the truth and that it was so sad that this was what people were up to.
With time, Mychal decided not to feel too bad about the whole thing and got cavalier. In a later Tweet, she expressed her pleasure that people were watching her posts. Then, on TikTok, she posted a short video of herself walking gingerly with a voiceover saying, “Just to be clear, I don’t give a f*** about how nobody feel about me.” The whole mess has since been cleared up, as Andrew returned to playing in April and revealed that his dad was suffering from some serious health issues.
