Who Is A’ja Wilson’s Husband or Does She Have a Boyfriend?

A’ja Wilson does not have a husband and has never been married. She has been dating her boyfriend, Josh Cunningham, since 2018.

Born in Columbia, South Carolina, in the United States of America on 8th August 1996, A’ja Wilson is currently 27 years old and has built a successful and reputable life for herself. She is a professional American basketball player for the Las Vegas Aces of the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA). What’s more, A’ja has an accomplished career and found love in the arms of fellow basketball player Josh Cunningham.

Is A’ja Wilson Married or Dating?

As much as is publicly known, A’ja Wilson is not married and has never been married before. However, the basketball player is dating and has been in a relationship for some time. Wilson is a graduate of Mass Communication from the University of South Carolina. She played forward for the Gamecocks in basketball but made her professional debut in May 2018 after she was chosen first overall by the Las Vegas Aces in the 2018 draft.

Since then, she has had a successful basketball career with many wins and awards. So, given her success in her professional basketball career, which is an open book, Wilson’s fans also become curious to know how she’s been keeping up on the personal front, especially regarding her love life.

This led to many questions “Who is her husband or boyfriend?”. And, because A’ja is not very open about her love life, some people went to the extent of speculating that she is a lesbian, but there is no truth in this. A’ja Wilson’s sexual orientation is straight, and there has never been any evidence or suggestions to prove otherwise.

Who Is A’ja Wilson’s Partner?

Since she became a celebrated figure, A’ja Wilson has been publicly involved with only one man, Josh Cunningham, who has remained her partner to date. Cunningham is a 27-year-old fellow basketball player born on 11th August 1996. He and Wilson share the same year and month of birth but different dates.

Cunningham attended the University of Dayton, where he played as a forward for the Dayton Flyers with the National Collegiate Association. Although he has yet to play professionally, Josh plays for the Southland Sharks.

A’ja and Josh Have Been Dating For 5 Years

A’ja Wilson and her boyfriend, Josh Cunningham, have been a couple for 5 years. The duo met many years ago while they were both in high school. They both attended Heathwood Hall Episcopal high school but did not get close to each other throughout their period there. They reportedly got talking for the first time in 2018.

But while Wilson attended the University of South Carolina, Josh attended the University of Dayton. Regardless, they managed to stay in touch and subsequently started dating. According to Wilson, she and her boyfriend have a lot in common. Beyond the fact that they share a love and passion for basketball, she said that they have been able to sustain their relationship because they have so much in common, although they didn’t reveal the things.

“We have so much in common — even our birthdays,” Wilson told the Dayton Daily News. According to her, there’s something about Josh, his personality, and who he is as a man that she really enjoys. “I enjoy having him as a boyfriend.” Similarly, Cunningham appears to share the same sentiment about Wilson. “She’s just a great person, very understanding — just a great girl.” Josh once said about A’ja.

Meanwhile, it is evident that A’ja and Josh are keeping their relationship private as nothing much is known about their relationship timeline. Although they have an active presence on social media, especially on Instagram, the duo do not have a single photo of each other on their different handles. They always individually stick to their basketball content.
