What Have Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan Said About How Their Romance Has Impacted Their Families?
“[My kids], they love Marcus. Like, they love him, and I feel like we talk about the same things,” Larsa gushed to Us Weekly in June 2023. “So, when I’m talking to my older son Scotty about basketball, Marcus is in on the conversation. [Then when I am] talking to my son Preston about fashion, Marcus has a clothing store — he has a boutique — so he chimes in. It is just an easy fit for our family.”
“I feel like her children are a little older in age. I feel like if you’re dating someone with younger kids, then maybe you need to instill your perspective on them in a different way. But I feel like Larsa’s relationship with her children — she’s best friends with them. They talk every day. And so, it’s one of the things that I admire about her,” Marcus said in the same interview.
He added, “For me, it’s more [like] I’m a fly on the wall. They have their conversations and wherever I can chime in that makes sense — I try to do so. But I think because we’re closer in age, I think that that we have a lot in common. I’m just happy that they’ve received me so well.”
