For a very long time, relationships in the NBA have been a heated topic, from breakups to weddings to secret girlfriends. While attempting to convince someone to respect their privacy, news like this is highlighted more. The Los Angeles Clippers athlete Kawhi Leonard, who is dating Kishele Shipley, experienced the same thing. He initially kept his relationship a secret, but it was eventually made public.
Kishele Shipley, a human resources specialist who works in San Diego, is the daughter of Kenneth and Cathy Marie Shipley. However, the 34-year-old keeps a very low profile and is not active on any social media platforms. She would much rather not be in the spotlight. She has been in the news because of her relationship with the NBA player.
It was only recently that media speculation about their engagement started to take off after TMZ reported. A large ring was observed on Kishele’s finger. Whether the two are engaged or not is unclear. They don’t appear to have each responded to the news or commented on it.
Let’s examine what happened before it all began, back when the two first met.
When did Kawhi Leonard and Kishele Shipley meet?
When Kawhi and Kishele first met, it was in 2014 while they were both students at San Diego State University. In contrast to Kawhi, who played basketball, Kishele majored in public administration. They have been living together and dating for nine years, but they are not yet wed.
The two are already parents to two children while still in a relationship. The couple welcomed their daughter Kaliyah Leonard in 2016. Their son and second child were born in 2019, which is three years later. Due to her private life, Kishele has not yet announced the name. Kishele made her first public appearance with her daughter at the Toronto Raptors parade for the first trophy.

Kishele will now find it challenging to maintain her private life out of the public eye and the media. However, it appears that their relationship will remain a topic of conversation for a while given the reports of their impending engagement.
