Sometimes we think that we have stories to tell and then we meet our celebrities and hear some stories that blow our minds. Will that be the case today? Well, there is only one way to find out, let’s check out the story on Tony Parker’s wife, his ex-wife, and the sons he now has with his present wife, sit tight.
Tony Parker’s Wife
Yes, ladies, this particular Parker is definitely off the market, and to make it worse, this isn’t his first rodeo… that is a story for another subheading though. So who is Tony Parker’s wife? Her name is Axelle Francine and she is a French journalist. The two did not meet online or in any of these ‘new school’ ways, it was an old-fashioned hookup.
They met through a friend in Manhattan, New York, they must have seen a bit of themselves in each other as they both just got out of relationships; Axelle had just come out of a 10-year relationship and Tony was coming off his divorce from celebrity Eva Longoria. Unlike his relationship with Eva, Parker seems to be keeping his relationship with her on the down-low.
Though they met the old-fashioned way, Parker employed a little bit of that new school swag when he announced his engagement to his second wife on Twitter; it was a kind of ‘hint hint’ situation. On June 26, 2013, two years after the two started dating, he casually tweeted that he was spending time with his fiancée. We certainly got the message.
Well, that’s about all we have got on Axelle, it’s time to move on to the woman who was Tony Parker’s wife before her, Eva Longoria.
Tony Parker’s Ex-Wife
This petite Latina is definitely famous in her own right, you may remember her as Gabrielle Solis on the ABC television series Desperate Housewives and even as Ana Sofia Calderón on the short-lived NBC sitcom Telenovela. Needless to say, Eva has a pretty good thing going on, in addition to being an actress, she is also a producer, director, activist, and businesswoman.
If you thought that we were done tooting her horn, think again. In addition to all the above, she has appeared in several advertising campaigns and has been named one of Hollywood’s most beautiful women by several publications, including People en Español and People magazines. This is the condensed version of her resume, it’s time to get to the juicy stuff.
So Eva and Tony met in 2004 after a spurs game and after that, the two were practically inseparable, from taking long romantic walks to yelling profanities at local law enforcement together, the couple did it all together. By 2007, after one short break from each other, the couple decided to tie the knot. That same year, a French model claimed that she slept with the basketball player, but he denied it blatantly.
All seemed to be well over the next few years, then in 2010, practically out of the blues, Eva filed court papers to divorce Parker, citing irreconcilable differences. After that came the speculations that there was infidelity involved, apparently Tony had a little tete a tete with a fellow NBA player’s wife (amongst other ladies) and Eva caught a whiff of it.
All is well that ends well though, Eva is now happily married to Jose Baston while Tony has his French beauty… with a little addition to his family. That leads us to the next topic, let’s meet Tony Parker’s son.
Tony Parker’s Sons
Well, he may have phoned it in with Eva, but the star seems to be building a really solid life with Axelle as the couple has not only one but two sons to call their own. Their first son, Josh Parker, was born on 30 April 2014, and now the soon to be 3 years old has a little brother to keep him company.
On July 29, 2016, the couple welcomed their son Liam into the world, the star really seems to like the Twitterverse as he took to the social network to announce, ‘ My son Liam and his mommy are doing well, so glad to be a daddy for the second time.’ He even posted the message both in English and French, well it was indeed a wonderful moment to share with the world.
