Keep living with Melvin without getting married.

Veronica initially meets Devin’s father, basketball player Melvin Booker, at the Continental Basketball Association’s Grand Hoops. Melvin was a member of the Grand Rapids Mackers during the 1995-1996 season. After their initial encounter, the pair began dating and fell in love. Later, the couple became closer, and on October 30, 1996, they had their first child, Devin.

Veronica was living with Melvin then, and they were not married. Melvin, Veronica’s partner, played for three NBA teams and was a fantastic volleyball player. However, he was never regarded as a basketball superstar; instead, he was known as an international player who spent most of his playing days overseas, particularly in Europe and Asia. He has formerly played for Sony Milano, Scavolina Pesaro, and Khimki. Although he is not a star, he has excellent knowledge of the game, enabling a player to have a promising career.

A wedding that never took place

Unfortunately, Veronica and Melvin’s lovely romance did not endure long. Even before they exchanged vows, the couple split and began living apart. Although their wedding never took place, they chose to raise their kid, Devin, as co-parents. Even after their divorce, the couple remained on excellent terms.

While Melvin played outside the nation, he mainly looked after him. Devin only saw his father during his summer vacation at Moss Point, Mississippi, where a significant proportion of the population was black.

The ‘Phoenix Suns selected him as their 13th overall pick in 2015. He participated in the ‘Rookie of the Year award after finishing the 2015-2016 season there. He was later named  the ‘National Basketball Association (NBA) All-Rookie First Team.’ In March 2017, he became the NBA’s youngest player to score 60 points in a single game. His remarkable performance propelled him to the position of one of the squad’s leading players and the youngest player in NBA history to have consecutive 50-point games.
