Austin Rivers is an American professional basketball player for the Houston Rockets of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He was one of the top-rated high school basketball players in the class of 2011, being rated as high as No. 1 by Rivals.com.
On September 30, 2010, Rivers committed to Duke University. Rivers gained national recognition after making a game winning 3-pointer against Duke rival North Carolina in 2012. He was drafted with the 10th pick in the NBA draft by the New Orleans Hornets (now Pelicans), playing three seasons there before being traded to the Clippers.
After three years with the Clippers, he was traded to the Wizards in June 2018. In December 2018, he joined the Rockets. On January 16, 2015, Rivers became the first player in NBA history to play for his father, coach Doc Rivers of the Los Angeles Clippers.
NBA guard Austin Rivers and his model girlfriend, Audreyana Michelle, got extra creative when revealing the gender of their baby, by lobbing a ball to daddy and it poofed into a cloud of blue!
The stunning Audreyana announced the baby on the way just days ago, with a mirror selfie captioned, “social distancing failed.” Austin got in on the fun, too, saying, “Pretty much lol. Love you baby.” Now, we know the newcomer is a baby boy, with the couple posting the highlight of a reveal last Tuesday. “It broke in the hand lol but yea it’s a boy. Blessed,” Rivers said. Austin and Audreyana went public earlier this year and have been as inseparable as you can be (considering dude was in the NBA bubble for a bit) ever since. This is Austin’s second child, his baby boy, Kayden, was born in 2018. Congrats to the couple!
