Early life and family
Daniela A. Rajić was born on 12 November 1990, in Queens, New York City USA, so holds American nationality, and her zodiac sign is Scorpio. Her parents are both Serbian, and she has a younger sister named Kristina Rajić, who has recently graduated from the University of Miami and is going to be a doctor.
Daniela spent her childhood in New York, and matriculated from a local high school in 2008. She didn’t enroll at any college, starting work as a dancer in nightclubs. However, Daniela is actually a religious person; she baptized her daughters according to the canons of the Orthodox Church, and shared some photos from the ceremony on her Instagram account. The ceremony took place in Belgrade, in Crkva Svete Petke; Milovan Vasiljevic, an old friend of Daniela, became the godfather to her daughters.
When she turned 18, Daniela started working as an exotic dancer and a stripper in the night clubs of Florida, to where she moved after her high school matriculation. She met her future husband, Paul George when she was working at the nightclub called “Tootsies”. After she started her relationship with Paul, she quit dancing in 2013.
Along with her friend Sarah Nasser Patterson, Daniela founded a swimwear line called “NudeSwim”.
The business is developing quite successfully, and the brand is advertised by such models as Summer CJ, Sophia Payán and Cheyenne Rowan. Daniela and Sarah met thanks to their husbands, who are both NBA players – Sarah is married to Patrick Patterson, a noted American basketball player with the Los Angeles Clippers. The idea of the swimwear line came to them while they were chilling at the beach, drinking wine and dreaming. Their dream of ‘perfect’ swimwear which would complement curvy bodies came true, and the two women started their brand soon after the idea popped into their minds.
Personal life, husband Paul George
Daniela met her future husband Paul while he was officially dating Callie Rivers. When the media found out about the affair between Paul and Daniela, Callie instantly broke-up with him, not wanting to participate in any scandal. The controversial beginning of their romance caused a tense relationship between the lovers, and when Daniela revealed she was expecting a baby from Paul, he was rumored to have offered her $1 million to abort the child. However, when the noise around the couple calmed down, Paul denied that, and officially announced they were in a relationship.
Before Daniela. Paul dated the model Jessica Burciaga, and the singer Destiny Marie.
Two daughters, Olivia and Natasha
Daniela gave birth to their first daughter, Olivia, on 1 May 2014. She shared a lot of her newborn’s pictures on her Instagram account, enjoying her motherhood. She even posted rare private moments of Paul George feeding Olivia from the bottle, holding her on his knees. Within a couple of years she became pregnant for the second time, and gave birth to their younger daughter, Natasha, on 1 November 2017.
Daniela lives an active life with her daughters, taking them to various sports events. For example, she is planning for Olivia to start taking tennis classes, as Daniela likes tennis herself and is a big fan of the famous Serbian tennis player and fellow countryman, Novak Djokovic. Paul George is also trying hard to find some spare time to spend it with his children, though his training schedule is very tight. Daniela shared some photos of him teaching Olivia how to fish – the father and daughter held the fishing rod together, catching some small fish and then returning them to the water.
