Who is Paul George Wife?

Does Paul George Have a Kid?
Yes, he sure does, not just one kid, though but two! he and his fiancee Daniela Rajic have two amazing and beautiful daughters born in 2014 and 2018.
But things weren’t easy at first for neither of them. Let’s go back to 2014, when the world heard about Daniela expecting a kid and that Paul George was the father of that child.
At that time Daniela worked as a dancer at the Tootsie’s Cabaret in Miami, and Paul denied the child was his; she sued him and things became messier.
Daniela filed a paternity suit against George in Manhattan Family Court and as expected media went crazy about it; there were also claims the NBA player offered her $1 million to have an abortion back then. He denied offering money.
After the paternity test result proved Olivia was George, he filed for full custody of his daughter; Daniela and Paul eventually settled on shared custody.
“They have reached a settlement with full joint custody and a financial package. They will be raising their daughter together. Paul George had always intended to do the right thing, and he is thrilled to have a daughter. The settlement is generous, the child is going to have a wonderful life, and both parents will be equally involved in bringing her up.”
After that happened and for Olivia’s well-being, they started to work on their relationship.
We are both very grateful for the opportunity to be joint parents to our beautiful daughter Olivia. While we have our separate lives, we are committed to providing her with all the support, nurturing and love she deserves.”
Who is Olivia to Paul George?
Olivia George is Paul and Daniela’s eldest daughter, because George denied he was Olivia’s father at the time, he couldn’t enjoy Daniela’s pregnancy by her side.
Fortunately, he made it up to her, they rekindled their relationship, gave little Olivia George a baby sister and soon they will exchange vows.
