After the NBA Draft, Andrew Wiggins earned the coveted title of the number one pick.
The Cavaliers took the shooting guard, and he’s predicted to go far in the pros.
His supportive girlfriend, Alex Reid, was majorly excited about the good news, as evidenced from this tweet:

Here’s what you should know about her.
1. She’s a Singer/Songwriter
On her Twitter profile, she describes herself as “Chillin writin songs in a bra n blue jeans.”
The video above show her recording her first single, “Body to Body.” Here’s her YouTube channel, which displays her musical talent.
Reverbnation describes her sound as “fresh, melodic, and somewhat reminiscent of early Britney Spears.”
In an interview with ChanLo, she talked about her early start in music:
Since I can remember, I’ve dreamt of making it in music. According to my parents, I memorized every song lyric from my favorite Disney movie before I could even speak in full sentences, so apparently they knew I was musically inclined.
2. She Answers Questions About Love
In the above video, she’s asked, “What do guys look for in a girl?”
“A good guy appreciates a girl who’s beautiful, has a brain, and loves herself,” she replied.
As far as exes go, Reid explains that an ex-boyfriend was her inspiration for her song, “Letters to My Ex.”
“I was in a position where I was no longer speaking to an ex, but I had so many things I wanted to say. As somewhat of a form of therapy, I started writing those sentiments down in emails that I knew I would never send,” she said.
She’s since moved on to the Kansas Jayhawks star, but the two are private about their relationship on social media.
Wiggins did post this Instagram picture, tagging his girlfriend.
3. She’s Based in L.A.

The starlet was born in Lawrence, Kansas, and raised in Plano, Texas.
To pursue her artistic aspirations, she found herself in New York City first but then relocated to L.A., where she now lives.
There's no place in the world like New York City… not everyone can make it here

She’s been the face for brands such as ROCAWEAR, Tommy Hilfiger, JC Penney, Heineken, Macy’s, Dillards, Nautica and Gatorade.
It's so empowering. I wouldn't trade the struggle or the hustle for any shortcut and lose the opportunity learn, grow, and truly be great.
