Cristina Blesa is the gorgeous wife of NBA star player, Marc Gasol -currently a center for the Toronto Raptors.
Cristina’s husband was born in Barcelona on January 29, 1985. He is the younger brother of Pau Gasol, an NBA Champion with the Los Angeles Lakers. They have a younger brother named, Adrià.
Marc made the move to the United States after his brother, Paul, was drafted, and he was named Memphis’s Division 2 Mr. Basketball in 2003. Marc was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers, 48th overall, in the 2007 NBA draft and his rights were traded to the Memphis Grizzlies.
He joined the Memphis Grizzlies in 2008, received the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year award in 2013, and was part of Spain’s Silver Medal-winning Olympic team in both 2008 and 2012. Marc was named to his first career NBA All-Star team in 2012.
The 7-foot-1, 255-pound center was traded to the Raptors in February.
He’s been happily married to wife Cristina, for a few years now.
Cristina Blesa and Marc Gasol tied the knot on August 7, 2013 in Girona, a city in Spain’s northeastern Catalonia region. The two lived together for at least six years before deciding to get hitched.
Blesa who is also originally from Spain, isn’t quite the fan of media. The NBA wag and mother keeps a low profile and enjoys her privacy. She can be seen attending games and cheering her man from the stands however she isn’t the typical flashy wag letting her hubby get all the attention.
Cristina who is already petite but looks tiny next to her hubby, gave birth to the couple’s only child so far, daughter Julia Gasol Blesa, in 2014.
Is clear that she stays busy caring for her family. The dark-haired beauty and her man lived in Memphis for over six years and is believed they have relocated to Toronto.
