Despite what looked like a solid relationship, the NBA player, Shawn Bradley, separated from his wife, Annette Evertson, after having six kids. Now, the pro-baller is busy raising his second wife's three children, as well as his two sons.

History with First Wife Annette Evertson

The pro-baller seemed to be madly in love with his first wife, Annette Evertson. He even credited her for keeping his spirits up during his dark times on more than one occasion. According to him, she used to wait outside the corridors during his games.

I would not even want to think what things would be like without her. Things would be . . . awful," said Bradley, 21. "I have told her, `Annette, I doubt I could handle this without you.

The NBA player first saw Evertson at Philadelphia Mormon Church, where she spoke about her South Florida mission experience. Apparently, Bradley was one of the audience there, and he fell in love with Evertson at first sight. 

Very quickly into the relationship—two months to be precise, he married her as he believed that she was the one for him. They went on to have 4 girls and 2 boys.

What looked like a strong and nurturing relationship between the former couple took a sudden swerve. It is unclear as to the exact reason for their separation.

Nevertheless, after his first marriage failed, the NBA player moved on with his now-bride, Carrie Cannon, and is busy with his new family.
