On Thursday, NBA star Jordan Crawford announced he wants to rekindle a romantic relationship with his wife.
“We’re going to have to fight like hell to get our marriage back, to be honest with you,” Crawford told TMZ.
“I love my wife, I love her family, and I want to be there for her when she needs me.”
The former New York Knicks star and his wife have been married since 2013.
“The truth is, it’s not easy to keep up the level of effort that I do,” Crawford said of keeping his relationship with wife, Gail, a longtime public figure, a source close to Crawford told CNN.
The couple are expecting their first child together. “
There’s not a lot of time in the day when I’m not busy doing that.”

Crawford has become an outspoken opponent of President Donald Trump, who he once called a “moron.”
On the campaign trail, Crawford has criticized the president’s travel ban, calling it “not constitutional.”
He also spoke out against the National Rifle Association, calling the group “a group of people that have no idea what it means to be a patriot.”
Crawford and his family are expecting a child in February, and have already begun planning a new trip to California, which he’s visiting this month.
Crawford, who was a contestant on the reality show “Celebrity Apprentice,” is the second former NBA star to come out publicly about his marriage.
Former Boston Celtics star Isaiah Thomas is also expected to step forward to talk about his own relationship.
The NBA has also begun a push for NBA players to be allowed to speak about their relationships on social media.
“As players, it is our job to make sure that we’re giving back to the community, that we are not taking it for granted, and that we make sure we are respecting people’s rights,” NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said Thursday, according to ESPN.
“And I think it’s important that we all work together to give back, and be there to support each other when they need us.”
