Wizards forward Kristaps Porzingis and girlfriend Laura Vizla shared photos of their trip to Paris, France on Instagram. Laura posted an image of her hugging Kristaps in front of the Eiffel Tower.
In the caption box, translated from Latvian, she posted: “Today I sing to myself in a ‘small picture frame’ all dreams come true!”
In September 2021, Porzingis went public with his relationship with Vizla. The couple first met in Ibiza, Spain during the summer of 2019. Porzingis approached her. After talking back and forth for a while, the 7’3″ baller asked her out.
Unlike most celebrity relationships, the couple kept their love under the radar for several months. The sixth-year NBA player prefers his privacy.
Furthermore, the couple enjoyed their time together at Casa Malca, a luxury hotel in Talum, Mexico, back in April. Porzingis posted images of their trip on his Instagram page. According to Booking.com, the average price for a room at Casa Malca is $900 per day. It’s nothing the Wizards forward can’t afford.
