Marta Xargay is a 32-year-old Spanish woman born in Girona. She won an Olympic silver with Spain in 2016, joined the WNBA in 2015 and retired from her playing career in 2021 just as she met Breanna Stewart and a whirlwind romance developed between the two of them.

Breanna Stewart’s wife – when was their wedding day and where is their permanent home?

Breanna and Mart met in Russia while playing for the same team – Dinamo Kursk. Once their relationship started it took only a space of several months, all during 2021, for them to get engaged, married and to welcome their first child via a surrogate mother.

It was Breanna Stewart who proposed. This happened on May 02, 2021, and it took the couple only just over 2 months to get married. They announced their engagement to the world via an Instagram post.

Breanna Stewart married Marta Xargay on July 6, 2021, in an intimate ceremony that involved only a handful of close friends and family members. Among the handful of witnesses were their friend and teammate Katie Lou Samuelson and her boyfriend.

Since Marta Xargay retired from playing basketball in 2021 she followed Breanna Stewart and the two made Brooklyn, New York their home. This is where the family resides, at least while Breanna is playing for the New York Liberty.

Breanna Stewart and Marta Xargay’s children

Breanna and Mart welcomed their first child only a day after Breanna won an Olympic gold with Team USA during the 2021 Tokyo Games. The couple used Breanna’s frozen eggs and a surrogate mother. Their daughter is called Ruby Mae Stewart Xargay.

The retired Marta and baby Ruby Mae have been following Breanna Stewart around the world since that day. Marta is an extremely dedicated parent as even Breanna states when talking about her wife: “Going on the road just a week after she was born, I was like, ‘This obviously sucks,’ ” she said. “But I know that she’s being well taken care of with Marta, with her family and with my mom, and I make her send me pictures and videos all the time.”

Then on Mother’s Day in America Breanna Stewart popped the news that the happy couple are expecting their second child very soon. This time the couple are not using a surrogate and Marta is pregnant as the photos posted on Instagram reveal.

We wish the soon-to-be family of four all the best in the world!
