Here’s what you need to know:
2. The Dragics Had a Seemingly Royal Wedding

3. The Couple Built Their Dream Home in Slovenia
Maja and Goran are both Slovenia natives and recently build their dream home there, according to Yahoo Sports.
Goran spent a lot of time looking at architecture before designing the house and is bringing different elements into it, according to the article.
[The columns] are main thing being built from other cultures in the house. Probably the main thing from the United States will be the furniture. My wife loves furniture here.
The three bedroom home was build by Maja’s father’s business, and Goran helped with the labor.
It’s going to be my house, and I’m going to live in the house,” said Dragic, who has a young son. “When you have kids, one day you can say, “Your daddy helped build that house.” It was fun for me and different. I’ve always been in sports, but this was kind of a different passion for me. I owned the house and I wanted to be part of it.
4. Goran Said Maja’s Cooking Isn’t as Good as His Mother’s
Goran told the Suns’ blog that Maja is a good cook, but not as good as his mother.
It’s much easier for me now because my girlfriend is here and she’s cooking for me. She’s a really good cook. It’s not the same as mom’s, but still it’s great. … When we have a day off I just try to relax, be at home and take a nap, try to get my body right for the next game. I just try to go with my girlfriend to see movies, go to Fashion Square. I have a lot of stuff to do but the most important thing is to try to get my body right for the next game.
