We are not sure how they first met, when they started dating or when/why they broke up, but we do know they have an adorable son together.
Back on April 23rd, 2014, Jennifer gave birth to the couple’s first child, son Shawn Jr.
It was shortly before tip-off of Game 2 in San Antonio that Shawn Marion learned that his first child would soon be born in Chicago.
It was then that Marion and Mavericks owner Mark Cuban made plans to return to Dallas in Cuban’s private plane ASAP after the game, then get Marion to Chicago.
Marion said he arrived at the hospital about 30 minutes after the birth of his son, Shawn.
“It was great, though, an incredible feeling,” Marion said after Friday’s practice at American Airlines Center. “Everything worked out very, very well.
“I have a beautiful, healthy son.”
