Who Is Luka Doncic's Girlfriend, Anamaria Goltes?

Luka Doncic, guard for the Dallas Mavericks, has been making a name for himself on and off the basketball court. The Slovenian athlete has become quite popular on social media for various reasons. In March 2021, Doncic became an ambassador for sports nutrition company Biosteel, which came with a deal to acquire an equity stake. Doncic quickly capitalized on his new executive role by showcasing his work experience and skills on a new LinkedIn account (now defunct). Doncic assumed the role of "Global Chief Hydration Officer" in BioSteel and listed "magic" as one of his skills, as reported by TMZ at the time.

Fans were impressed and reacted on Twitter about LinkedIn's newest user. "Having a great time on LinkedIn dot com with my new connection and best friend @luka7doncic," one user tweeted, whereas another wrote, "I'm very much enjoying Luka Doncic creating an official LinkedIn page and still not having enough experience to be considered for a manager position."

Doncic's foray into different social media platforms isn't new, but he might've been inspired by his girlfriend Anamaria Goltes, who is an Instagram influencer. The couple has captured much attention from basketball fans about their relationship. Here's what you should know about Goltes.

Anamaria Goltes and Luka Doncic met when they were kids

Also hailing from Slovenia, Anamaria Goltes met the well-paid Luka Doncic when they were 12 years old. "We met when we were 12 years old at the seaside in Croatia," Goltes said on an Instagram Live in 2020 (via The New York Post). "Fun fact: We still have the same group of friends we had at that time. You keep the real ones, am I right?" The two have dated for nearly five years and often show appreciation for each other through Instagram posts and stories. 

Goltes has worked as a lifestyle and fitness instructor and offered personalized workouts for people looking to stay fit. "I fell in love with movement and being active at a very young age," Goltes wrote on her website (via The U.S. Sun). "Growing up I always enjoyed going to the gym and working out, and now I love motivating people to put their health first and teach them that working out can be fun too!"

The Slovenian beauty also revealed that she danced professionally for 10 years before transitioning to become a "model, entrepreneur, influencer, and student." She posts what she wears and her dogs whom she shares with Doncic on Instagram daily. Goltes also shows support for her boyfriend by documenting herself watching Mavericks' games. However, Goltes might prefer chilling at home with Doncic the most as she revealed on Instagram during the modified NBA season in 2020. ""I love that I get to spend some time with Luka, Hugo, and Gia," she wrote (via The New York Post).

She became a mom after a picturesque proposal

Luka Doncic didn't wait to win the ring that all NBA players covet before putting some bling on Anamaria Goltes' finger. He got down on one knee on July 7, 2023, a significant date for more than one reason — his jersey number is 77, and 7/7 is also the anniversary of when he and Goltes began dating. The fairytale setting of the romantic engagement was Lake Bled in the couple's native Slovenia, where Doncic popped the question among heaps of white flowers.

While Goltes was well on her way to joining the upper tier of NBA WAGs, Doncic made a stunning confession about her in an appearance on "Headliners with Rachel Nichols." "When I get home, it's no basketball talk. She don't like basketball," said the 2019 Rookie of the Year.

The couple gained something new to talk about when they welcomed their daughter Gabriela five months after their engagement. On Instagram, Goltes has shared a photo of the little girl watching one of her daddy's games. However, Doncic told Esquire that tennis, not basketball, is the sport he hopes Gabriela eventually picks up. He also shared his future plans for his family: returning to Slovenia and living on a farm after he retires. In the meantime, Goltes will remain his biggest cheerleader and keep showing up at his games, basketball fan or not. "I'm really happy to have her. ... She helps me a lot," Doncic told Nichols of his fiancee.
