Popular as Ja Morant, Temetrius Jamel Morant is a professional NBA basketball player who plays for the Memphis Grizzlies. Morant also played college basketball for the Murray State Racers at Murray State University. He became a first-team All-American as a sophomore in 2019.
Morant made an immediate impact as a freshman at his college, earning first-team-all-conference honors in the Ohio Vally Conference. The basketball star was selected as the NBA Rookie of the Year in 2020 and was a starter for the first time at the NBA All-Star Game in 2022.
Aside from his successful basketball career, the 22-year-old enjoys a blissful life with his adorable daughter. Many people might not know about this fact. So here is all you need to know about Ja Morant’s daughter, Kaari Jaidyn Morant.
Was Born Premature
Kaari Jaidyn Morant is the daughter of the famous basketball star, Ja Morant and Kadre Dixon. The little one was welcomed into this world on August 7, 2019. However, that was not when Kaari was supposed to be born. Instead, Ja Morant’s baby girl was born two months prior to the due time.
Due to this reason, Kaari had to stay in the hospital for a few weeks before she was allowed to go home. Ja Morant’s daughter is currently two years and eight months old. Well, the basketball player missed his little girl’s first birthday due to his professional commitment. Let’s hope he gets to celebrate with young Kaari on her upcoming birthdays.

The Grizzlies star has always been private about his relationships and love life. So it was only a rumor when the news of Morant dating Kadre Dixon, also known as KK Dixon, spread. However, it became evident that the duo was together as they welcomed Kaari together.
Due to Morant being private about his relationship, it is hard to know when the pair started dating and if they are still together or not. Regardless, it seems the couple has split up. Morant confirmed he is single through his Instagram stories as per a few sites. It is difficult to know the reason for the ex-pair’s break up.
Nonetheless, both of Kaari’s parents co-run an Instagram account on Kaari’s name and frequently post about the lovely girl on their own Instagram accounts.
