Trae Young has a sweet fairytale of his own

Atlanta Hawks’ Trae Young is just 22, and he has already achieved a lot on the NBA court. But he hasn’t done an awful job at the court of love either. The youngster’s officially dating a woman named Shelby Miller. 

Now, the couple has kept their love story a little secretive, so it is unknown when they first met each other. However, it’s clear from Shelby’s Instagram post that they’re together ever since 2017. Reportedly, the couple proved the seriousness of their relation when Shelby moved from Norman to Atlanta just to stay close to the Hawks’ franchise face. Plus, they’re so sure that they once answered a social media Q&A by revealing they want three kids in the future.

Trae’s Instagram has just one picture where Shelby was sitting on the courtside with him to cheer for Trae’s young brother. On the opposite, Shelby’s handle is filled top-to-bottom with them enjoying a hot tub in West Hollywood, the yacht in Miami, and the beaches in the Bahamas.
