Luke Kornet, the professional American basketball player who has played for the teams like New York Knicks, Chicago Bulls, and Boston Celtics, has been leading a happily married life for some years. As much a dedicated player as Luke is on the court, he is equally a dedicated husband, father, and son off the court.

Notorious for keeping his love life away from the media spotlight, Luke Kornet’s marriage to Tierney Price is common knowledge among basketball fans. However, the details of their love story, including how they met, remain a mystery to many.

Here’s everything you need to know about Luke and his wife’s relationship.

Luke Kornet and Tierney Price’s Relationship Started At University of Vanderbilt

The husband and wife of over 4 years first came across at the University of Vanderbilt. The duo reportedly met around 2015 and hit it off soon. And they have never looked back ever since.

Since both of them were on athletics teams, they had fun going to each other’s events in college. Talking to Anchor of Gold, Price said they had several fun moments as a couple in college. Particularly, she reminisced the moment when Luke and she both were injured and Luke took her to the hospital while he was on crutches. “That was a funny scene,” Price said.

On the other hand, Luke said it was awkward initially as their teams had sessions at the same time and place. Reminiscing a moment of their college days, Luke said,

“I did feel like a bit of a traitor the first time I left the team at Hendrix Room to go eat and talk to her. I’m still sorry fellas!”

Luke and Tierney’s relationship deepened in the college itself, and they have been together ever since no matter what career path they have chosen.

Their Engagement and Wedding

After they dated for a couple of years, Luke proposed to his then-girlfriend on June 7, 2018, in Central Park. Luke’s mother, Tracy Kornet announced the big news on her Facebook where she wrote “Luke lined up a special proposal in Central Park yesterday — and had the team photographer capture the moment” in her lengthy caption.

Shortly over a year after getting engaged, the pair tied the knot on August 2, 2019. Luke’s mom again shared several glimpses of their marriage and she even wished on the couple’s first wedding anniversary in 2020. However, not much about their wedding is known.

They Are Parents of Two

The adorable husband and wife have welcomed two children together. Both Luke and Tierney aren’t public on social media which keeps the details regarding their marital life, including their children out of the media radar.

Having said that, we do know for sure that, Luke and his wife welcomed their second child, a daughter in November 2022. The little girl’s arrival made headlines as her father, Luke, was playing a game against his former club Knicks in New York when he received a call that his wife had gone into labor.

So, he left the match in between and headed to the hospital in Boston. Later, the proud father said he was “glad I was able to make it back” on time.

There are things far more important than basketball, and that is definitely one of them. So I was happy to leave,” Kornet said.

Who is Luke Kornet’s Wife, Tierney Price?

Price was born to Maura and Rob Price in the Woodlands, Texas. She has two brothers, Tyler Price and Brady Price. She attended The Woodlands College Park High School where she played soccer and was an excellent runner.
