Luka Dončić Is Off the Market. Professional basketball player Dončić has announced his engagement to long-term girlfriend and childhood sweetheart, Anamaria Goltes. On Friday, July 7, Luka got down on one knee in Lake Bled, Slovenia. The beautiful glimpse into the moment, posted on Instagram, was creatively captioned “7.7,” a perfectly chosen date for an NBA player with the jersey number 77. The couple’s love story is truly inspirational. Read on to learn more.
Who Is Anamaria Goltes?
Like Luka, Anamaria was born in Zagorje ob Savi, Slovenia. She is 25 and has lived in Dallas with Luka for several years. Anamaria considers herself an entrepreneur and influencer, advertising herself on social media as a “fashion and lifestyle content creator.” Her 197,000 followers agree. She makes her living as a model and fitness trainer, focusing on posting fitness tips to her social accounts. Alongside travel pictures and fashion-forward ideas. In addition to her work on social media, she is also currently working for Immortal Model Management and Campbell Models.
The Groom to Be
Luka Dončić is no stranger to fame, having become one of the most dominant basketball players on the professional world stage. He has played for the Dallas Mavericks since 2018 after he was drafted by the Atlanta Hawks. He was awarded Rookie of the Year in his first season. His basketball friends have enjoyed teasing him about acquiring a wedding ring relatively soon, as despite his sports-related successes, Luka is still chasing an NBA championship ring. Now, Luka Dončić Is Off the Market and pretty sure this news broke someone heart (LOL).
The Love Story Begins
Anamaria jokes with the press about being tired of answering the “how they met” question. Both Luka and Anamaria are from Slovenia, and met while vacationing at the Croatian seaside when they were 12 years old. Not only are they childhood friends, but they’ve also kept the same group of mutual friends ever since their teenage years: “You keep the real ones, am I right?” Luka quips.
Her Move to the States
After finishing her university degree in the School of Economics and Business at the University of Ljubljana, Anamaria moved to the U.S. to pursue a modeling career . From the very beginning of her time in America, she was a successful influencer on social media. She and Luka began dating in 2016 and despite a short break in 2018, now plan to spend the rest of their lives together.
His Move to the States
Luka also moved to the States to pursue his choice of career. He was already headed for basketball stardom playing for Real Madrid at the young age of 13, but he didn’t relocate to the States until he was drafted in 2018. Beforehand, he had only spent two weeks in America. He said it was a difficult transition, with friends and family left at home and in completely different time zones. Thankfully, the two love birds were able to find companionship in each other in the heart of the American Metroplex.
Falling in Love
When Anamaria moved to the States in 2016 to work with International Management Group, the two turned their long-time friendship into a relationship, that has lasted 7 years. With such a long history together, there will inevitably be some ups and downs, such as the rough patch they experienced in 2018. But they spent a lot of time together during the Covid quarantine and were able to renew their love for each other. Now they’re stronger than ever.
The Couple Life
Luka and Anamaria keep their love life quietly under wraps. But they can be seen snuggling on Instagram or dressing up for a night out at a Mavs Gala. There are plenty of pictures of Anamaria draped in Dallas Mavericks merchandise, specifically Dončić gear, as a show of support for him whether the team play at home or away. Earlier this year, she traveled with Luka to Vivent Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah for the All-Star game. Proudly, she supports her sporty fiancé.
Their Puppy Family
While the couple doesn’t have any children, yet, they do have adorable pets. Their three dogs Viki, Hugo, and Gia share their love nest. Luka is known for keeping his personal life private, but snapshots of the two with their White Swiss Shepherd, Pomeranian, and Tamaskan can be seen all over Instagram. In fact, the dogs have their own account!
What About the Money, Honey?
When two stars fall in love, the public couldn’t help but wonder about their net worth. It is estimated that Dončić’s net worth is somewhere around $25 million. He is expected to make $38.6 million in the 2023-24 basketball season alone. Since this goes up every year through to 2027, his net worth will naturally grow. Goltes’ net worth is a little harder to guess. Estimations fall between $100,000 and $1 million, but she is also still working, so the couple will definitely have no trouble keeping those three puppies fed in the future.
Amidst snowy blossoms in Lake Bled, Slovenia, the NFL star proposed to his love, but for now, there have been no details released about the ring. The secrecy, however, is no surprise considering Dončić’s tendency to keep personal things quiet. But rest assured, we will give an update as soon as the couple shares the ring details publicly, and will reach out to the Wedding Scoop experts to get their take on all the details.
Love Among the Stars
What could be better than true love between friends? The love story of Luka Dončić and Anamaria Goltes is one to inspire. Their family, friends, and fans wish them every happiness for the future as they continue to tell their story.
