Kelly Oubre Jr. has been an American professional basketball player for the Charlotte Hornets in the NBA since August 2021. 

He is one of America's finest talents and has played for the Phoenix Suns, Golden State Warriors, and Washington Wizards. 

The Louisiana-native played one season of college basketball for the University of Kansas before establishing his name in the NFL draft. 

We all know that Kelly has been in the headlines for his outstanding performance in several teams. However, the public doesn't know much about his personal life.

Despite being the face of the camera for several years now, Kelly manages to keep a low profile of his private life. 

He is currently dating a model who goes by the name Shylyn on her Instagram account. 

Shylyn is an Instagram influencer with almost 90 thousand followers. Her Instagram profile consists of many snaps from vacations and some insights into her life with the basketball player.

The couple started dating each other in 2020, and although they hadn't disclosed the details on when it started or how they met, their love for each other is quite evident from their presence on the internet. 

After several months of dating, the NBA star went down on his knees to propose to his girlfriend on December 2, 2020. His fiance, Shylyn, was seen flaunting the beautiful diamond ring that he gave her to celebrate the engagement. 

The former Phoenix Suns athlete had a relationship turn bitter before he met his fiance. He opened up about his ex-girlfriend Makena LeDuff extorting him for around $3 million. Their relationship went downhill after that and ended for good.

Kelly and his fiance announced pregnancy when Shylyn shared a picture of her with her baby bump posing for a photoshoot on her Instagram.

She wrote, "We are divine, match made in Sirius. We defy time. Nothing else matters. You're my true love." 

Although their fans had expected the couple to release the due date, they refrained from talking about it in any way, shape, or form. 

While many celebrated the announcement, a few of the fangirls of the basketball player went on to Twitter and Instagram with sad face emojis and cries of "I wish I were her" and "It should have been me" comments.

With the buzz surrounding the player's baby, the love birds finally welcomed their child in July. The couple shared a picture on July 23 that showed Shylyn holding the tiny hands of her newborn and had an emotional caption to frame the beautiful moment.
