NBA star Kawhi Leonard is currently on vacation, with his babys mother Kishele Shipley and their daughter in Barbados. The NBA champion Kawhi was spotted on the beach looking on at the two ladies in his life - enjoying the sun and fun.

Kawhi is a notoriously private person, so pictures of his babys mother - especially in a bathing suit - have drawn interest from fans

Here are the images that are going viral:


In addition to the ongoing, the lovely partner of NBA’s superstar, Spurs’ forward, Kawhi was born in San Diego, California to Kenneth Shipley and Cathy Marie Shipley (née Coleman) on the 10th day of April 1989 which makes her a couple of years older than her boyfriend (Leonard was born on June 29, 1991). She has two sisters; Kassandra and Kenisha.


Kishele Shipley attended the San Diego State University where she studied Public Administration. She worked as a human resource professional in San Diego after graduating for college in 2012. The duo might have possibly met in college as they both attended the same school. After Leonard was selected by the San Antonio Spurs, she relocated with him to Texas in December 2014.


Kawhi plays basketball for the Toronto Raptors. Kawhi was drafted by the Spurs, and won an NBA championship in 2014, when he was named the Finals Most Valuable Player (MVP). After seven seasons with the Spurs, Leonard was traded to the Raptors in 2018. In 2019, he led the Raptors to their first NBA championship in franchise history and won his second Finals MVP award.

He is a three-time All-Star and has two All-NBA first team selections. Nicknamed "The Claw" or "The Klaw" for his ball-hawking skills, Leonard has earned five All-Defensive team selections and won the NBA Defensive Player of the Year award in 2015 and 2016.
