In 2006, Nash denied that he was romantically involved with Canadian singer Nelly Furtado. She had referenced him in her 2006 song “Promiscuous,” which led to rumors that they were linked.
They both grew up in British Columbia
In March 2016, Nash became engaged to Lilla Frederick, a former Pepperdine University and junior women’s U.S. team volleyball player. They married in September 2016.
In July 2017, Frederick gave birth to their son, Luca Sun Nash, at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, California.
Initially, in 2001, Nash met Alejandra Amarilla in Manhattan. They married in June 2005 and had twin daughters, Lola and Bella, born on 14 October 2004 and a son, Matteo, born 12 November 2010.
On the day of his son’s birth, Nash made a statement to Life & Style in which he announced the birth but called it a “bittersweet moment,” revealing that he and his wife had “lived separately for the past several months” and are “in the process of dissolving” their marriage.
In 2001, Nash formed the Steve Nash Foundation.
Through grants to public service and nonprofit entities, the foundation aims to foster health in kids by funding projects that provide services to children affected by poverty, illness, abuse, or neglect, and create opportunity for education, play, and empowerment.
It focuses its resources on communities in Phoenix, Arizona, and British Columbia, Canada. It was given charitable status in 2004.
This foundation was awarded the Steve Patterson Award for Excellence in Sports Philanthropy in 2008. Nash also founded the Jim Jennings Memorial Endowment Fund, established in honor of a volunteer staff member at Santa Clara University who served the basketball team for more than 20 years.
Nash, whose father was born in the Tottenham district of London, is a lifelong Tottenham Hotspur supporter, and has expressed interest in owning a minority stake in the club.
“I’d like to be an owner. It’s something I could do for the rest of my life after my little window of popularity dies”, he said in an interview with The New York Times. Nash added, “I’ve been a passionate supporter all my life. My parents are from north London and so it’s not like I’m some Yank who wants to make a profit out of football. I don’t care about making money. I just want to see Spurs succeed and, if I can help, that’s great.”
However, he said any participation in Spurs would come after his basketball career is over, and he has had only “casual contact” with chairman Daniel Levy and former director of football Damien Comolli.
Nash is also a fan of Spain’s FC Barcelona, and Brazilian team Sport Club Corinthians Paulista, which his former Suns teammate Leandro Barbosa supports.
When Barbosa visited Corinthians in 2007, the club gave him a shirt with Nash’s name and jersey number.
