The Clippers suffered a loss on Sunday, but that didn’t stop Russell Westbrook from celebrating his 35th birthday with a blast. He was seen dancing the night away at his birthday party with his wife, Nina. Nina excitedly shared a video of the special moment with her 9x NBA All-Star husband on Instagram, showing the couple hand in hand, twirling on the dance floor.
The video captures the cheers of Russ’s family and friends, including L.A. rapper/singer Blxst, as they cheer them on. Nina jokingly stated, “The birthday boo gets one dance outta me,” implying that she is not much of a dancer. Russ and Nina have been together since meeting in 2007 when both of them played college ball at UCLA.
Despite the loss in the game, Russ had a great time on his birthday, and it was evident in the way he danced with his wife. Nina and Russ tied the knot in August 2015 and welcomed their first son, Noah, in May 2017. Subsequently, they had twin daughters, Skye and Jordyn, in 2018.
Nina is not just a supportive wife and mother, but she is also highly qualified and accomplished. She graduated with her bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s in clinical psychology. She is now a licensed marriage and family therapist, showcasing her dedication to helping and supporting others.
In an Instagram post, Nina expressed her love for Russ, saying, “Happy Happy Birthday Suga! You’re so loved and appreciated! Never forget it! I love you!”
Despite the bday shenanigans, the Clippers suffered their 5th consecutive loss, putting them in 11th place in the Western Conference with a 3-6 record. However, Westbrook contributed 12 points and 5 assists in the game, and also enjoyed a memorable celebration for his birthday.
Overall, it was a special moment for Russell Westbrook, marking another year of life, love, and success. Happy birthday, Russ!
