    Ahead of the Lunar New Year, former NBA star Jeremy Lin revealed that he has been married for about two years.

    On Wednesday, Lin wished his followers a happy Lunar New Year in a Facebook post. Along with the greeting, the 34-year-old announced that he married his longtime partner “a couple years ago” in an intimate ceremony, adding that the wedding was the “highlight” of his life.

    Although the former Knicks star did not disclose his wife’s name, he wrote his post in both English and Chinese and included a wedding photo.

    The funny thing about becoming famous overnight is no one teaches you how to deal with it. As grateful as I am for this crazy journey I’ve been on, I always knew that when I got married I’d want to keep my personal life sacred and to myself for as long as I could. 

    While I still feel strongly about guarding aspects of my personal life, it has also been hard for people to not know about such a major change. After many years of being together, I married my wife in an intimate ceremony and it’s been the highlight of my life ever since. Finally sharing this beautiful day from over a couple years ago. I’m grateful to have found someone who loves me for who I am, to embrace my unique life, and to just do life with. 

    Hope this next year is full of health, time with loved ones and joyful memories. Happy Lunar New Year from our family to yours. 

    Last month, Lin announced his departure from the Guangzhou Loong Lions of the Chinese Basketball Association and said he would return to the U.S. to “rest and reset before I make a decision with my family for my next step.”

    Lin, who was the first American-born player of Taiwanese descent in the NBA, skyrocketed to fame when playing for the New York Knicks in 2012. As a point guard, he averaged over 22 points and led the Knicks in a seven game win streak that became known as “Linsanity.”
