Steve Nash Welcomes 3rd Child; Splits With Wife Same Day

Just hours after Steve Nash’s wife Alejandra Amarilla gave birth on Friday to a seven pound, seven ounce baby boy named Matteo Joel Nash, the new dad released a statement to Life and Style magazine saying,

Alejandra Amarilla and Steve Nash

“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 firmly committed to raising our children in the most positive, nurturing way possible. I want only good things for Ale 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.”

The couple, who has been together for nine years, are also parents to six-year-old twin daughters Lola and Bella.

While I get that the divorce announcement was imminent, I think it’s unfortunate that they had to do it the day the baby arrived.
