Ricky then went on to play for Utah Jazz from 2017 to 2019 and Pheonix Suns for a season. He was traded to the Cavaliers in 2021 and is currently playing for the team despite a series of injuries in his career.

Sara Colome Maintains A Private Life

Rubio and Colome have strict privacy in their love life and remain away from the spotlight.

Sara has very little presence with Rubio in public and at his basketball matches. Ricky has also supported her with her privacy because he does not reveal much about her and his married life to the media.

Colomé has private social networks where only those close to her can see what she publishes. The basketball player's wife takes care of the family and runs her restaurant as privatized as possible. 

Ricky also tries to hide her identity on his social handles as he always posts pictures showing her from behind. He has only posted two pictures with her on Instagram, and both images do not reveal her face.

Ricky Rubio Son

Ricky Rubio has a adorable son with Sara. Ricky became a father for the first time when Sara gave birth to their baby on January 14, 2020.

Carlos Gonzalez posted a photo of Ricky playing around his son during his pre-game on his Twitter account. The photo was taken in 2021 when Rubio was still playing for the Minnesota Timberwolves, and young Rubio was also wearing the team's jersey.

The picture proves that junior Rubio has attended some games with his father. Ricky is always happy around his son, as he is cheerful and smiling while playing with his only child.

Ricky Rubio Plans To Retire NBA After His Son Starts Schooling

Ricky has talked to the media about the time right for his basketball retirement. Fox news tweeted about this decision once his son began school.

Rubio mentioned that he and his wife discussed this matter and agreed upon the decision. The point guard's series of serious injuries and lack of game time obliged his retirement idea. 

Rubio is ready to call it quits soon or by the time his 3-year-old son starts school. Given the mental and physical strains of the journey back, Rubio thinks about returning to Spain and giving all his time to his family.

Ricky doesn't plan on missing any parent-children meetings in the foreseeable future. He does not want to make his boy dizzy, moving around when he’s six years old when he starts to make friends.
