Maria Taylor’s Husband – Rodney Blackstone

Well, Maria is not so open when it comes to relationships and affairs. Rumors suggest that she had posted a picture of her mysterious boyfriend on her Instagram account back in 2016.

In the interview with The Knot, she recalled the moment saying,

“I remember seeing him and telling my friend, ‘If we keep coming to these games, I’m going to end up dating him.” 

In the meantime, she also revealed that Rodney was also checking her out at the same time. She added in the interview,

He was asking his friend whether I played for the WNBA in Charlotte,” she adds. “Or, he thought maybe I was there to support one of the guys—I was a girlfriend of a player or something.”  

Fortunately, Rodney approached her in the backroom of that same Hornets game, and this was when both of them got connected for the 1st time. Tylor’s relationship with Rodney is the perfect example for those who don’t believe in love at first sight.

Eight months after dating, Blackstone proposed to Maria for the first time. Unfortunately, she was rejected as she wasn’t ready to be a wife at that time. Eventually, Maria accepted Rodney’s 2nd proposal after proposing to her when they were hiking in L.A. Blackstone romantically proposed to her with a floral-inspired ring featuring a halo. She explained about the incident, saying, “When I saw this ring, I fell in love with it. I know nothing about it other than I knew I wanted rose gold and something that shines from every angle.”
