Kyrie Irving is a cryptic personality who seems to be on some path to find the deeper meaning of life. On the court, he is one of the greatest ball handlers, and off-court, he is on the voyage of handling things just as well. No wonder he recently donated a solar water center to help a village in Pakistan with clean aqua.

Kyrie Irving and his spiritually sound love relationship with Marlene Wilkerson

The 7x NBA All-Star met Marlene Wilkerson in December 2018. These were the last few months when Kyrie was still donning a green jersey representing the Celtics. In the coming time, their love life took off as the lovebirds reportedly got engaged in September 2019. 

Currently, the couple has given birth to their first baby together and Marlene’s YouTube channel has documented that journey. That’s right, Marlene is a star YouTuber with her channel with 780K subscribers (almost double the followers on her Instagram). On the channel, she discusses fashion, health & fitness, her life, and entrepreneurship. 

The Brooklyn Nets star recently posted a picture where he called Marlene his ’Ankh’ and probably the sole reason behind his ‘KALM energy’.
