He graduated from West Virginia University with a bachelor’s degree in sport management and an MBA in business administration.

Jonnie’s father Jerry played for the Los Angeles Lakers from 1960–1974.

At the time, West averaged 31 points per game, made an NBA record 840 free throws, and earned All-Star Team and All-NBA First Team nominations.

When did the couple meet?

In March 2019, Michelle announced that she was engaged to Jonnie.

Although it’s unclear how the couple met, the pair both have athletic backgrounds.

Michelle and Jonnie married in a private Beverly Hills home in California in August 2019.

Michelle Wie West and Jonnie West welcomed their baby girl in June 2020

“She was so happy, and she looked so radiant,” Michelle’s longtime coach David Leadbetter told Golf Channel. “It’s a great new chapter in her life.”

Golden State superstar Steph Curry attended the wedding, as well as LPGA pros Danielle Kang, Jessica Korda, and others.

“Mr. & Mrs. West ♥ congratulations to the beautiful couple and what a fairytale of a wedding..” Kang wrote in an Instagram caption at the time. “Wishing @themichellewie & @jonniewest4 a lifetime of love and happiness ♥ #WieGoesWest

Do they have kids?

On June 19, 2020, West gave birth to her only child, a daughter named Makenna Kamalei Yoona West.

Kamalei is a Hawaiian for “beloved child.” Michelle grew up in Honolulu, Hawaii.

“Kenna baby, I have waited my entire life to meet you,” she wrote on Instagram at the time. “Makenna Kamalei Yoona West, your daddy and I love you more than any words can describe. You are our entire [world], we can’t wait to watch you grow.”

Her pregnancy came after she took a large chunk of 2019’s LPGA season off to focus on her health.

She underwent surgery in October 2018 to repair an avulsion fracture, bone chips and nerve entrapment in her right hand.

While she was considering retiring before she became pregnant, she’s now hoping to show her daughter how she can be a mom and a world-class athlete.

“Before I was even pregnant, I thought my career would come to an end when I had kids, and I was fine with that,” Michelle said in May.

“Then I found out I was having a girl, and my perspective changed. … Now, I definitely want to play for her. I want to create a future for her while she sees me being a strong woman and an athlete and being someone that is pursuing her dreams.”
