Anansa shared her top nine photos of the year on December 31, 2019, and seven of the photos included Matt. “Looking at these moments is making me emotional. I can truly say I had a great year. So much love in my life this year,” she wrote. “I had some pain, some tragic moments, but with God, Matt & our Family I overcame the hardest times.”

There is no greater gift than Pure Love.”

In May 2019, the All That Smoke podcast host opened up in an interview with OKMagazine.com about how his twin sons adjusted to being big brothers. “They love it! They love being big brothers, you know what I mean, I’m trying to get them to change diapers, that’s the process we’re getting to. But they run around and do any little errands that their brother needs,” he said.

Matt also revealed his life as a parent now is much different than when he and Gloria welcomed their sons. “You know when my twins were born I was still playing in the NBA so I was traveling a lot and I wasn’t as hands-on as I get to be now. So I’m there every day with them and we got our morning routines,” he said. “I love having a baby back in the house.”
