Here’s another giant on the basketball court. Even nonbasketball fans know of LeBron James. This guy is in contention for the next NBA GOAT, after all! Ever since high school, LeBron had a thing with sports. He was a football and basketball player in high school. And that’s where he met Savannah Brinson, who was a cheerleader and softball player at the time. Meaning they’re one of those adorable couples who came together as high school sweethearts.
Everyone couldn’t agree more that they’re meant to be. When James first met Brinson, he wasn’t as tall as he is now. But his height was already pretty impressive. They got along well, obviously. In 2011, James proposed to Brinson during a New Year’s Eve Party. This beautiful couple has stood the test of time, with more than 15 years of marriage, and three gorgeous children to be proud of.
Chris Bosh & Adrienne Williams
Here’s another one from the NBA scene. Chris Bosh is not really the biggest player in Miami Heat. But come on, he’s 6’11”. By any standards other than basketball, that’s crazy tall. His giant stature becomes more pronounced when he poses next to his wife, Adrienne Williams. American businesswoman and philanthropist, Williams is a full two feet shorter than her athletic husband.
Nonetheless, Bosh and Williams got married in 2011. If you haven’t figured it out by now, height is just a number. They’ve been enjoying their married life and have happily welcomed three sons and a daughter into their fold.
Khloé Kardashian & Lamar Odom
And the Kardashians are back! Khloe Kardashian seems to really have a thing for taller guys. She dated Lamar Odom in 2009 (before her tryst with Tristan Thompson). The two first met at a party for Artest, Lamar Odom’s teammate. Odom played for the LA Lakers when he and Khloe dated each other.
Exactly a month after she met Odom, they were married. Their wedding was even featured in the Kardashian’s reality TV show, giving us the opportunity to take a glimpse into the world of the socialites. There was even a spinoff show, called Khloe and Lamar. As with most things in the world of reality TV, the affair was short lived.The couple only remained married until 2016. Kardashian pursued the divorce, and it was finalized that very same year.
Peter Dinklage and Erica Schmidt
Who among the Game of Thrones characters is your favorite? I’m sure there’ll be a lot of you whom immediately think of the clever and charismatic Tyrion Lannister. Who wouldn’t love Tyrion? He’s smart, eloquent, and has the remarkable ability to always dodge the everpresent hand of death. This endearing character is played by Peter Dinklage, who’s also popular for his roles in The Station Agent and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
Peter Dinklage was born with achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism. But this condition hasn’t stood between him and a stellar career, celebrated by a host of loving fans. Dedicated though his fans may be, there’s someone whose love for Dinklage we can’t parallel. That person is none other than Dinklage’s wonderful wife, American actress Erica Schmidt. The pair were married in 2005 and until now, have remained private about their personal lives. In fact, they haven’t even revealed their kids’ name to the public. But of course, we respect that. Whenever Dinklage is asked about his family, he delivers some touchingly beautiful answers. When one interviewer asked about his wife, Dinklage replied, “she’s very inspiring. She’s definitely the artist of the family. I am just the TV actor who pays the bills.”
Ari Cooper And Deryck Whibley
Sum 41 frontman, Deryck Whibley, was married to fellow rockstar Avril Lavigne before eventually marrying Ari Cooper. Lavigne was 5’2”, and Whibley 5’6”. Height obviously wasn’t an issue. Now, with his new wife, things are different. Ari Cooper stands at 6’0”, half a foot taller than Whibley. Love’s ability to transcend such details as an unconventional height difference wasn’t the only wonder Whibley discovered when he met Cooper.
In 2014, he suffered organ failure due to alcohol abuse. He had to stay in the hospital for months, during which time his loving fiancé never left his side. He even said in an interview that she was a huge help in turning his life around. A turbulent year later, the two got married and Whibley is now happily living the sober life.
