Monica Brown does an interview with Essence.com about her “New Life” with Laker Shannon Brown
MONICA: That’s so easy for us, I don’t know where to start. The best lingerie I have, Vanessa Bryant gave it to me. She is the biggest fan of La Perla and she goes into those stores a lot. Every time I would open one of her gifts, Shannon was like “yeah” and he’d start clapping for that gift. Sometimes he likes when I’m just in his t-shirt or his jersey.
I think the foundation in our marriage is strong and we don’t want to leave room for anything to tear up the foundation or create cracks in the wall.
Smitten From the Start
Monica says she and Shannon fell in love instantly and after the video shoot (where they met) wrapped, they embarked on one great date that never ended
The truth needs no support. I love my husband and he loves me and I think if you sit back and you watch and you pay attention you’ll see it yourself.
Monica and Shannon Brown surprised fans in November 2010 when they announced that they’d married in a small justice of the peace ceremony with just one witness. Love just could not wait.
Love All Over Me
R&B diva Monica met future hubby Shannon, 2006 first round NBA draft pick and current Lakers player Shannon Brown, on the set of her “Love All Over Me” music video. Who could have known the casting could be so spot on.
My husband is my part of my greatest joys, so it doesnt feel like work or like I’m balancing anything. My husband and my kids absolutely come first.
