If this handsome baller's heartfelt thoughts about BFF Russell Westbrook's wedding don't make you melt, we don't know what will. He told The Oklahomian, "I remember Nina (Russ’ wife) when she was still in college visiting Russ in OKC. I remember she flew on the team plane and it was the first time we had kinda met her and, like, you could see how much love they had for each other and I was so jealous. I wish I had that. You know what I’m saying? And to see it full circle, them as a married couple, it was beautiful. Showed how much we’ve grown."

Sometimes you gotta love a mama's boy. The sexy swimmer told People, "The backseat my mom took was really important for me. All through high school and college, she never took it upon herself to motivate me. She knew that was my coaches' job and knew ultimately that motivation had to come from me internally. Her not putting too much pressure on me to perform or any of that has been nice."

Look for this fierce (and fine!) father on the high dive. He told NBC, "Having a daughter after the 2012 Olympics has made training so much different because once my first job (diving) ends, my other job (being a dad and husband) begins. It is non-stop work without much rest but totally worth it and has made this journey to 2016 so much better—but at the same time harder."

Boris Diaw

He's a French basketball star. Need we say more? The National Basketball Players Association describes him as a free spirit. Plus, he's single without kids, and has traveled most of the world. He's a serious photographer, a children's book author, and a screenwriter. And the icing on the cake—he also plans to travel to space one day. Damn.

Jamie Murray

While discussing his younger brother Andy Murray's tennis success with the Daily Mail, Jamie said, "If I wasn’t happy with my life and I was really struggling, maybe it would be different. I don’t know. I have always been his biggest fan and I have always wanted the best for him and that will never change." If that's how he treats his brother, just imagine how he'd treat you...

The tennis star told The Guardian that he's got his eye on a different prize post-Olympics: "I hope I will have a family. A house, with a garden, will be nice. And I would love a barbecue! Just very simple things and a passion to work hard." Could he get any cuter?

Sonny Bill Williams

The desire to take care of his family is what motivated this rugby star to go far. He told The Guardian"I grew up in a housing-commission house. My parents were always living from paycheck to paycheck. They were always struggling. I thought that if I could play rugby on TV I'd be able to get my mom a house. That was the driving factor." We love a man that works hard for his mama.
