In sickness and in health - couples make their vows of being together no matter what circumstances are.
New Orleans Pelican’s guard, Jrue Holiday fulfilled his vow to his wife. This is when they found out that her wife, Lauren who is a former U.S. women’s soccer star was determined to have brain tumor. Holiday made an urgent move – he told NBA that he needs to take care of his wife and has to leave. What is important for him is the health of his wife.
Lauren is also 8 months pregnant and its will be their first child. Despite of the decision of Holiday, the support of NBA is in full swing for Holiday and even wishes his wife to be in good health immediately.
They both got married last 2013 in a very charming ceremony.
But before all of this, they both met in a very cute way. When they are still attending in UCLA, a young girl approached Jrue and asked him if he was Darren Collinson. Lauren was just sitting behind him while Jrue was explaining who he was. Lauren then said that he was way cuter than Darren.
They were seeing other people at that time but they began dating when Jrue was drafted in Philadelphia 76ers in 2009.
After the USA beats Japan in the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup, Lauren retired as a midfielder. Then in less than 6 months, she was pregnant with their first child.
The New Pelicans announced last September 4, 2016 that Jrue was leaving the team because of her wife’s condition.
The Coach of the Pelican’s Alvin Gentry said, “We are all praying for a healthy delivery of their first child and a successful surgery for Lauren,’ Pelicans general manager Dell Demps said in a prepared statement provided by the club.”
”Furthermore, we ask everyone to respect the Holiday’s privacy time.”
“The most important thing for Jru to do right now is be with his wife and family.”
“Every one of our coaches and players understands what Lauren and Jrue are going through, and they know we’re behind them 100 percent.”
Jrue did not think twice when he heard of what will be ahead for her wife and family. His support for his wife is indeed his priority.
Jrue said in Nola.com that, “My family comes before basketball.”
After six weeks of Lauren giving birth to their first child in mid-October, she will undergo surgery. However, her labor might be early. They are keeping the privacy of their situation this time and their focus are only on their baby and Lauren’s health.
