Kawhi Leonard, the basketball star for the L.A. Clippers, has been with his girlfriend, Kishele Shipley, for over a decade since they met in college at San Diego State University.

Though Leonard prefers to keep his relationship out of the public eye, Shipley has been by his side throughout his career and they share two children together.

Their first child, a daughter named Kaliyah, was born in 2016 and their second child, a son, was born in 2019.

Leonard even missed a game against the Chicago Bulls to be there for the birth of his son. The couple keeps their relationship low-key, with neither of them having social media accounts.

Leonard's private nature has been present from before he became famous, with his mother saying that he doesn't care about hype or big names.

The couple sparked engagement rumors when Shipley was seen wearing a diamond ring on her left finger while arriving at LAX with Leonard in May 2022, but they have yet to comment on the rumors.

Shipley graduated from San Diego State with a bachelor's degree in public administration, while Leonard left to join the NBA after the 2011 draft.

In 2019, Leonard shared that his move from the Toronto Raptors to the Los Angeles Clippers was motivated by his desire to be closer to his family and play at home.

The couple celebrated Leonard's NBA Finals win and MVP award in 2019 with a trip to Barbados with their family.

Shipley has been Leonard's biggest supporter throughout his career, even congratulating him with a teary hug after he scored 22 points in Game 6 against the Golden State Warriors, securing their championship win.
