Nick Young Says He and Girlfriend Iggy Azalea Are Discussing Marriage

In case you’ve been waiting for an opportunity to break out that snakeskin cummerbund, Nick Young and Iggy Azalea are discussing the prospect of matrimony.

The news comes courtesy of Young's recent interview with DuJour magazine, wherein the Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard discussed his relationship with Azalea, the struggles of cohabiting and how—wouldn’t you know it?—the Australian rapper is a normal person like the rest of us when she’s not performing.

Weaved into Young’s anecdotes about TV remote battles and Azalea’s surprising cooking skills is the marriage bomb. He says the idea of tying the knot is starting to pop up in their conversations. 

Growing up I always wanted to be married and have a family, and it’s difficult. I ask [my parents] every day how they do it. It’s a process. Me and Iggy just bought a house. We’ve been getting really close lately. I’ve never been with somebody like this. So, I’m taking it as a challenge. ... It’s come up a couple times. 

So we’re not exactly on the cusp of pinning an Iggy-Swaggy “Save the Date” magnet to the fridge, but the prospect is on the table, and it’s never too soon to start getting fitted for a corduroy tux. 

Remember: You can never be overdressed for a Swaggy P wedding. It’s like Cirque Du Soleil but acid-wash formal.
