Tyler Herro is an American professional basketball player for the Miami Heat. Last year in the NBA bubble, Herro became one of the most popular players thanks to his fearsome and courageous play. He was one of the reasons the Miami Heat made it to the NBA Finals. And that popularity helped him get an amazing girlfriend. How much do you know about her? Who is Tyler Herro’s girlfriend?
Tyler dates Katya Elise, a model with more than 8 million followers on Instagram. Tyler and Instagram influencer model Katya Elise Henry are one of the most high-profile couples in the NBA. Their relationship has been highly publicized from the very beginning and up until now.
While some NBA players have a trophy wife, Katya is nothing of such. In fact, you can rather say Tyler was the one chasing her and doing everything he could to get her. She has done well in her own right, building a devout fan-following from the ground up.
Let’s talk more about Tyler Herro and Katya Elise relationship.
How Did They Start Their Relationship?
As we said before, Tyler was the one chasing Katya. And the two started their relationship thanks to Twitter. For the two, it all started with three simple letters, W-Y-D.
The Miami Heat star sent out a not-so-innocent tweet on March 20, asking a leading question at the Instagram model.
And she replied quickly. After Tyler made the move, the two probably started chatting in private messages.
Truth be told, for most mere mortals, trying to hit up a gorgeous Instagram model with a single tweet would be a wasted time. But not all of you are young NBA players with a prosperous career.
