Wearing a black embroidered pleated tulle dress with a sparkly bodice and rich navy highlights, Lim felt like a princess on the red carpet of the glamorous event. Her makeup, tastefully enhancing her natural features, and a gracefully crafted low bun added a touch of sophistication, harmonizing flawlessly with her ensemble.
In a heartwarming display of support for her partner’s remarkable achievement, Lim took to Instagram to share her emotions, stating: “Watching this man achieve his kid’s dream was the most moving thing.” Her sentiment was echoed by Parker in the comments, conveyed through two red heart emojis.
At 33 years old, Lim’s tennis journey has long transitioned into a new phase. The French-Vietnamese tennis professional, born in Paris, attained a career-high WTA ranking of No.135 in May 2014. In more recent times, she has embraced her role as a presenter on Eurosport, carving a new path in the realm of sports media.
Tony Parker is a retired French professional basketball player who is widely regarded as one of the greatest point guards in the history of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He played the majority of his NBA career for the San Antonio Spurs. He was selected to multiple NBA All-Star Games and earned various accolades, including NBA Finals MVP in 2007.
Parker was born in Bruges, Belgium, to a basketball professional African American father and Dutch mother. He was raised in France. He has an interesting connection to tennis, as his grandmother on his mother’s side was Dutch national tennis champion in 1956.
After divorcing Eva Longoria, most famous for her role on Desperate Housewives, Tony married journalist Axelle Francine, with whom he has two sons, Josh and Liam, born in 2014 and 2016, respectively. His relationship with Alize Lim was made public in March 2021.
