Meet Keva Develle Horry, wife of 7 time NBA champion Robert Horry. Keva met Robert through a mutual acquaintance when both were attending college at the Universty of Alabama. Keva, eventually became one of Robert’s closest friends. Keva had never seen someone so tall and thin, nor met someone as easy going. Keva, as boisterous as Robert is reserved, dated the high-profile athlete—despite her better judgment. At one point, the couple’s relationship appeared to be over until Keva’s mom asked Robert to come over and “lend her a hand” fixing something. At that time, Robert and Keva had a long talk and have been together ever since.
Keva married Robert on July 5th, 1997. They have two children, Robert Cameron and Ashlyn. Ashlyn, the couple’s first child, was born on April 2, 1994. Ashlyn is seriously disabled, missing part of her 1st chromosome, meaning she may never speak or walk unaided or discard her feeding tube. Ashlyn spent her first six months in the hospital. Doctors discovered that part of Ashlyn’s throat, the epiglottis, had not formed properly, causing two serious problems. Breathing was difficult and eating was a risk, for fear the food would go down the wrong pipe. So tubes were inserted, and Ashlyn lived at the hospital.
After retiring from the NBA, Robert plans to stay in Houston, Texas, where he has built a 14,000-square-foot home to be with his family. Robert is currently working as a commentator on ESPN.
