Here is the endearing romantic tale of Draymond Green and Hazel Renee going from schoolmates to Sweethearts
At Michigan State University, where she competed in track and field and he led the Spartans to two Final Four berths and a Big Ten tournament victory, the actress and NBA player first met.
Hazel Reene said to Essence :
“We were in the same theater class and both athletes.”
“Naturally we gravitated towards one another for group projects because we were already familiar with each other.”
But at the time, there was no romantic relationship between the two.
However, the two would finally meet again, this time in Los Angeles, for a first date, years later. It was remarkable because it was short and nice.
“We went to a rooftop pool and hung out at the cabana all day, which is still one of our favorite things to do together.”
“We hadn’t seen each other in a very long time so we hung out all day, talked, and caught up. It was really casual but also reflective of our relationship. We really are best friends.”
They frequently go on trips together, which is their preferred activity.
Hazel Renee also added :
“We have been to so many different countries and have truly experienced a lot together.”
“We are both very adventurous and have so much fun. I love being able to explore the world with him.”
In their new roles as husband and wife, she anticipates doing a lot more of that. However, the beauty is awaiting their wedding day in the meanwhile.
“I’m looking forward to celebrating our love and this new chapter in our lives with the people who have been down with us from the very start.”
“To have the support of family and friends is priceless.”
