Who is Joel Embiid's wife Anne de Paula?

Joel Embiid married longtime girlfriend Anne De Paula at the Hamptons on Saturday. Embiid and De Paula had been dating since 2018 after meeting through a mutual friend.

Embiid and De Paula welcomed their only child, Arthur Elijah, in September 2020.

De Paula, 28, is a Brazilian model. She was born in Rio de Janeiro on March 31, 1995. De Paula's modeling career took off gradually. Her first prime gig came with Sports Illustrated as a swimsuit model in 2018.

Just like Embiid, she's also passionate about soccer and even used to play the sport as a goalkeeper. That was one of the common things between the couple, along with them knowing French.

Embiid's family from Cameroon and De Paula's from Brazil were at the wedding along with their close friends. The former's Philadelphia 76ers teammates Tyrese Maxey, Tobias Harris, De'Anthony Melton and Georges Niang also attended the ceremony.

The couple seemed excited to start this new chapter, leaving no stone unturned while celebrating their special day. They danced to Brian McKnight's "We At One" while Embiid sang rapper Meek Mill's "Dreams and Nightmares" song with the singer on a FaceTime call.

Anne de Paula has been by Joel Embiid's side during some of his toughest moments in the NBA. That includes the heartbreaking loss against Toronto in Game 7 of the 2019 conference semis.

Embiid also had her by his side after finishing second in the MVP race for two consecutive seasons in 2021 and 2022. De Paula has been supportive of his career and Embiid will hope his marriage brings some luck this year, as he looks to lead the Sixers to a deep playoff run.
