Derrick Rose has played for more teams than the average NBA athlete, but off the court, his loyalty lies with one woman – Alaina Anderson. For nearly a decade now the blonde beauty has been by her man’s side, cheering him on from the sidelines throughout his time with the New York Knicks, Cleveland Cavaliers, Minnesota Timberwolves and the Detroit Pistons. Since he’s not currently on Instagram, people have been following Rose’s wife for any updates on the newlyweds and their family. However, despite her vast following, Anderson mostly keeps her personal life out of the public eye, focusing on her love for fashion instead.

Who Is Alaina Anderson?

The mother of two was born to mixed parents (a Black mom and White dad) in Tennessee on November 15th, 1994; this makes her a 29-year-old Scorpio. People who fall under this water sign are known for their intense, magnetizing energy, and from the sounds of what Derrick Rose has publicly said about his other half, she knew exactly how to reel him in. “I didn’t know how you were going to perceive me. But this entire time I was hoping that you would believe me. Believe the words that I will have your back and love [you] forever,” the Chicago native wrote when announcing their engagement.

“When I FIRST saw you I told Ryan that we were gon be together. It took both of us a while to let down our guards. That’s only [because] both of our hearts were scarred. We are two peas in a pod [because] we are truly MISUNDERSTOOD,” Rose, a flirtatious Libra, added. Though Anderson mostly seems to dedicate her time to her beautiful family, she’s also turned her love for fashion into a business.

Her Love for Fashion Inspired Keep It Cute Fitness

After years of posting pictures of her looks online to inspire others, the Southern belle launched her Keep It Cute Fitness brand in 2019. Since “athleisure” became a top-selling product amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Anderson’s brand is still thriving, offering consumers a variety of workout sets in colors and designs that are flattering for bodies of all shapes and sizes.

Two-piece options with matching leggings and a sweater cost $140, but there are more affordable products too. Besides keeping you looking fly at the gym, Keep It Cute sells equipment like resistance bands, waist trimmers, core sliders and meal plans to help you achieve all your fitness goals this Hot Girl Summer. Anderson occasionally shares footage from her workouts online, taking pride in achieving her hourglass shape without surgery.

Anderson and Derrick Rose’s Relationship Timeline

It’s unclear exactly when Rose and his better half first met, but in October 2016 she posted him for the first time. Two years later, their daughter, Layla Malibu Rose, was born and in 2019 their son, London Marley Rose, joined them. As People notes, the 35-year-old’s first son, PJ, was born in 2012 from a past relationship with Mieka Reese. Anderson has given us a few glimpses into their life as a blended family, such as Christmas celebrations and their 2023 wedding ceremony.

When it came time to propose, the Memphis Grizzlies player knew he had to go big to impress his future wife. During a romantic dinner on the court at Madison Square Garden, Derrick Rose got down on one knee and asked Anderson to spend the rest of their lives together. “I will always love you [because] you go above and beyond. We built a beautiful family and [an] unbreakable bond. Thank you, Queen,” the father of three praised her at the time.

Their vows were exchanged at the Beverly Hills Hotel on September 7th, 2023 with thousands of white roses decorating the lavish venue. Rose’s former Chicago Bulls teammate, Joakim Noah, officiated the ceremony, making it even more memorable. Of course, all eyes were on Alaina Anderson in her custom Galia Lahav gown, which you can see photos of here.
