NextImg:Joel Embiid marries Sports Illustrated model Anne de Paula in Hamptons ceremony

Joel Embiid’s big year might’ve had its biggest day yet.

The 2023 NBA MVP and Philadelphia 76ers star got married to longtime partner Anne de Paula in Southampton on Saturday afternoon.

The two snapped portraits together on Cryder Beach and officially tied the knot in a church ceremony.

Rumors swirled in 2018 that Embiid was in a relationship with the Sports Illustrated model, which was later confirmed.

In one of his toughest moments in the league when the 76ers were eliminated by the Toronto Raptors in the 2019 Eastern Conference finals on a Kawhi Leonard buzzer-beater, de Paula was there to support the big man.

The two share a son together, Arthur, who was born on Sept. 16, 2020.

“When Arthur sees him, there is no one else in the room. It is the most beautiful thing ever,” de Paula told ESPN in 2021.

Embiid tied the knot on Long Island, but it’s not the first time the 7-foot center has been tied to New York this year.

In an interview earlier this offseason, Embiid alluded to the fact that he’d like to win an NBA title “anywhere.”

“I just want to win a championship,” Embiid said. “Whatever it takes. I don’t know where that’s gonna be, whether it’s in Philly or anywhere else, I just want to have a chance to accomplish that.”

Not long after those comments, ESPN’s Zach Lowe and Dave McMenamin teased a possibility of the six-time All-Star pairing up with the Knicks.

“I mean line up the Acela Express and send him up to New York,” McMenamin said on an episode of Lowe’s The Lowe Post podcast. “That’s been what has been the murmurs. [Lowe] said New York, we’ve all heard New York, we know the connection between Leon Rose and Joel Embiid.

“We also know, quite frankly, that Daryl Morey came into a situation that was largely set up before him and he will continue to craft that team in the fashion that he wants it to look like.”

Embiid might not have an NBA championship ring yet, but he definitely has a ring after Saturday’s ceremony.
