Folks who enjoy learning about the lifestyles of NBA stars and their families are likely fans of VH1’s franchise Basketball Wives. With 14 seasons under its belt, the series has followed the lives of various female entrepreneurs and businesswomen making waves in the industry. And fashion designer Angel Brinks is considered a fan favorite.
She appeared on Basketball Wives LA Season 4 and 5, and returned to the VH1 show for Season 10. Angel's down-to-earth personality, talent, and sweet nature has won over audiences. Not to mention, the tragic loss that her family endured also made Angel relatable to viewers. Now that the fashion designer is a mother of three, fans are interested in her dating life. So, who is Angel Brinks dating? Here’s what we know.
Angel Brinks and her boyfriend, ‘Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood’ star RoccStar, welcomed their son in November 2021.
Oh, baby! On Oct. 19, 2021, Angel took to Instagram to not only celebrate her birthday, but share that she was expecting her third child.
In a post showing off her baby bump, she wrote, “It’s my birthday. So thankful for family, love, success … and speaking of birth, it’s almost time! More surprises on the way.”
Fans and fellow celebrities flocked to her Instagram page to share their well wishes.
“Happy birthday Brinksy. And congratulations! You deserve all the blessings,” Basketball Wives alum Tami Roman commented.
“The secret is finally out. Happy birthday beautiful,” BBW star Brandi Maxiell commented.
Angel welcomed her third child with RoccStar — born Leon Youngblood Jr. — in November 2021. After the birth, the Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood alum posted about Angel and the baby on his Instagram stories, thanking her for having their son.
"Thank you @angelbrinks for bringing into the world the greatest gift ever! A young king and a prince!" he exclaimed.
Per TheJasmineBRAND, Angel and RoccStar first started dating in late 2020. Since then, they’ve made very few public appearances together, but it looks like they're in it for the long haul. The pair reportedly share a business, RoccStar’s Angels Trucking, LLC, located in North Hills, Calif. Angel’s fashion line is also on the music producer’s website. RoccStar has already appeared in a few episodes of Basketball Wives, where he and Angel discuss her pregnancy.
Angel Brinks has two other children — a son with her ex-husband and a daughter from a previous relationship.
Angel and RoccStar’s bundle of joy isn’t her first time welcoming a new child into the family. The 39-year-old has two children — son Azari (almost 15) and daughter Amani (8).
Angel shares Azari with her ex-husband, Bruce Sandlin, better known as rapper X1. He allegedly died by suicide in 2007 while Angel was nine months pregnant with their son. She's opened up about the tragic loss on Basketball Wives, and has shared how Azari has also grieved his father's absence.
As for Amani, Angel shares her daughter with NBA player Tyreke Evans. The two were in an on-again/off-again relationship beginning in 2010 and welcomed their daughter in 2014. The pair eventually cut ties for good the year after Amani was born.
While Angel has been through a lot in her past relationships, it’s heartwarming to see that she has finally found someone to stand by her side. We would like to congratulate Angel and RoccStar on their relationship and growing family!
