Who is Diana Taurasi’s wife?

Diana is married to Penny, an Australian retired professional basketball player, and a former assistant coach.

Penny enjoyed a long career and decided to retire in 2016. Following this, she took on the role of Phoenix Mercury’s assistant coach. However, in 2020, she took a step back to be a full-time mother. She was replaced by  WNBA player Chasity Melvin.

Mercury’s general manager Jim Pitman also supported Penny’s decision. He said: “Part of being a family and working toward equality in this space is supporting working moms. We fully understand and support Penny’s decision to focus on her role as a mother.”

Diana and Penny got married in 2017 but kept their relationship as private as possible.

Meanwhile, Penny added that it was “a beautiful day and everything we hoped it would be. It was the perfect timing and real celebration of everything we’ve been through and how we’ve been professionals and supportive of each other through some really tough years and challenging careers.”

At the same time, in an interview with ESPN, Diana gushed about their relationship. She said: “We both found something in each other that made us each a better person, a better teammate. And you don’t get to find a lot of people like that in life.”
