Guess how Dallas Mavericks guard J.J. Barea has been spending time during the pandemic? Hanging out with his 4-year-old daughter, according to what he posted on Instagram. Paulina Barea Ortiz was born March 31, 2016. He also has two sons, Sebastian and José. Here’s what Barea said after son José was born in 2019: “We’re having the time of our life, we’re enjoying our kids and we love to live here (in Dallas). I don’t see us living anywhere else than here, so we’re excited and we’re enjoying life.” He also had this advice about being a dad: “Just enjoy as much time and pay as much attention to their kids that they can, because it goes fast. Not everybody is able to be a dad and not everybody has got ‘dad’ opportunities.”
