TheBallerLife.com has learned that former NFL star turned NBA TV analyst Ahmad Rashad has gotten married for the fifth time to Miami couples therapist and actress Ana Luz Rodriguez-Paz on April 29th, 2016 in Palm Beach County.
Rashad is 66 and Rodriguez-Paz is 34, and their marriage license shows that they were hitched in a ceremony led by one of the bride’s family members in Palm Beach Gardens. Rashad shared photos of his new bride, one of them together at the banquet (see above) and another one of her in a bikini on Twitter. (see below)
The former Minnesota Vikings star receiver followed in the footsteps of his hero Michael Jordan, who married a much younger Latina from Miami three years ago.
In 2013, Rashad divorced his fourth wife, former model Sale Johnson, the ex-wife of New York Jets owner Woody Johnson. He was also married to actress Phylicia Rashad back when she starred alongside Bill Cosby on “The Cosby Show.” Ahmad famously asked her to marry him on national television in 1985 during the halftime broadcast of a Thanksgiving NFL game. In 2001, after nearly sixteen years of marriage, Ahmad and Phylicia divorced.
He married his first wife in 1969, Deidre Waters, and in 1976, Ahmad married his second wife, Matilda Johnson. They divorced in 1979.
As for his fifth wife, Rodriguez-Luz runs a successful psychology practice with offices in Boca Raton and Miami after getting a degree from NYU.
In 2007, Rodriguez-Paz got the leading role in Consensual Injustice, an indie drama about the Ponce massacre, the killing of anti-US protesters in 1937 Puerto Rico:
