Dwight Howard and his fiancé Te’a Cooper caught everyone’s attention in October after posting live messages between the two on Instagram. The incident occurred during the Los Angeles Lakers celebrating their NBA championship win. Dwight and Te’a have been engaged since last year, and the couple are easy to pair up. During a recent interview with The Rematch podcast, he gave listeners a closer look at their relationship.
The host, Etan Thomas, asked Dwight if he intended to return to the Lakers. He said: “I would definitely like to come back and play for the Lakers again. Hopefully they’ll give me a contract this year. “In the conversation, Dwight referred to Te’a as his wife and said,” My wife plays for the Sparks. So it would be great if the two of us were still in the same town and played. “
When Etan asked what married life was like, Dwight said Te’a had changed him for the better. “You know what? I love it. I absolutely love it. It’s new to me. I’ve never had a situation like this, but I’m very happy,” he said. “It really just brought more peace, more happiness. It also changed my life. When you have a really great woman behind you, it just seems to make everything better. I’m very grateful to her and how she was like my rock and foundation. “
Dwight went on to say how he and Te’a are like twins. He said, “She pushes me to be a bigger person. I just squeeze them to reach new heights. She does such a great job. I’m just trying to be there for her in every possible way. “It is unclear whether they are officially married, but congratulations to them.
