Before a coupleEdit
- Russell was a basketball player at UCLA
- Nina was a basketball player at UCLA
Westbrook and Earl are both native of Los Angeles area of Southern California. Both of them were top basketball prospects in high school and they chose to attend UCLA. Westbrook was a sophomore and Earl was a freshmen when they met and started dating. In аn interview, Russell ѕаid оf Nina, “… she’s a smart girl. She’s in school right now, trуing tо gеt hеr master’s in psychology. Shе knоwѕ whаt ѕhе wаntѕ tо dо in life, whiсh iѕ great. That’s easy fоr mе tо cope with.” And whеn asked аbоut a wedding hе ѕаid with a smile, “We ѕhаll see. Wе ѕhаll see.”
After six years of dating, Westbrook proposed to Earl on September 3, 2014 with a massive rock. TMZ reports the $700,000 ring is a “six-piece elongated cushion cut” diamond masterpiece made by renowned jeweler-to-the-stars Jason of Beverly Hills. They married got married on August 29, 2015 at The Beverly Hills Hotel.
Westbrook is known for his daring and sometimes crazy fashion sense. A quick survey of his outfits from the past year includes head-to-toe color, just-for-the-hell-of-it glasses, and no-fear pattern mixing. But on the most important day of his life, his wedding day, he kept things seriously classic. Westbrook wore a Tom Ford peak lapel tuxedo with tails, white vest, white bow tie, and thankfully no novelty glasses. A mere speck of dandyism was visible in his black patent leather loafers. And wearing them sockless was a triumph in up-to-the-minute style. We've got to hand it to him, his throwback tuxedo was a very wise choice. Here's a few reasons why:
He'll have no "trend-regret" when looking back at the photos.
He mastered the ever elusive "white tie" without looking frumpy or like a old-timey hipster.
He kept his accessories minimal, no top hat or bulky jewelry or even socks.
And most importantly, he followed a really important rule—never upstage the bride.
On May 16, 2017 the couple welcomed their first child Noah Russell Westbrook.
