2. They Have Been Together for 11 Years
3. They Have a Daughter Together
In 2012 after 9 years of dating, Watley gave birth to their daughter Kennedy.
4. They’re Going to Have Either a New York or Destination Wedding
Watley told PageSix.com that they haven’t made any plans yet, but are thinking about having either a destination wedding or a signature New York wedding.
5. She is the CEO of a Brand Marketing Company
Watley, a native of Passaic County, NJ, followed her dreams of becoming a successful adult. She grew up in a family of athletes and always had a spark for sports which inspired her to start up a sports agency which Cruz is a part of, along with other successful athletes.
She told PRWeb.com in an interview:
When I was younger, I always had this image that you needed to be a millionaire to start your own business and call yourself an entrepreneur. If I had just met someone I could relate to and show me that it’s possible to be an entrepreneur at any stage of your life, I probably would’ve started my business much sooner.”
When I told people about my dream, they would just laugh at me. There have been bumps along the road, but I persisted and stuck to my plan.”
