Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid has had a lovely few months.
The Cameroonian native was named NBA MVP in May and now, two months later, has tied the knot with Anne de Paula – a former Sports Illustrated model, no less.
Embiid and de Paula, 28 and 29 respectively, officially became husband and wife in Southampton, New York.
The couple already have a son together, Arthur, who is currently two years old. He was adored by NBA fans after greeting his father on court during the MVP ceremony.
De Paula and Embiid got married in a church, as seen in fellow film producer Michael D. Ratner Instagram.

Wearing a white tuxedo with a bow tie, Embiid smiled with his blushing bride, who wore a progressive pattern dress.
Embiid received the only ring of his career during the ceremony. His 76ers failed to defeat the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Semifinals in May.
There is uncertainty about the future of Philadelphia. James Harden could be out and Embiid admitted he was “disappointed” to find out The Beard wanted to leave.
Embiid has described how much an NBA title would mean to him – and hinted he might be willing to leave the 76ers at some point to achieve it.
“I just want to win a championship.” “Whatever it takes,” Embiid said in an interview with Maverick Carter held at Thursday’s UNINTERRUPTED Sports Film Festival.
“I don’t know where that’s going to be, whether it’s in Philly or elsewhere, I just want a chance to make that happen.”
