The Early Life of Jimmy Butler’s Daughter

Rylee Butler was born in October 2019. She was born as the first child and daughter of her father, Jimmy Butler, and mother, Kaitlin Nowak.

Being born the only child to a duo of an NBA star and a professional model, Rylee is indeed a fortunate kid.

Likewise, Jimmy and Kaitlin have been seeing each other for years, but they did not deny the relationship in the media, nor did they confirm it.

It seems that the couple just wanted to have a secret relationship away from all the limelight and paparazzi.

How has Jimmy Butler’s daughter influenced him?

It is not a hidden secret that fatherhood changes a man a lot. In the same manner, Jimmy Butler has changed a lot too.

Perhaps after having a daughter, he has realized the importance of a woman in one’s life. He has reportedly said that he has to make sure that women are at the same level as men.

Growing up, his mother did not treat him very well, and maybe that made a negative impression on women in his life. But things are different now after he got to meet his very own baby girl.

He has found a new mentality within himself that advocates for women’s rights and equality.

Jimmy reportedly missed the three first games of Miami Heat in the late 2019 season because of his daughter’s birth.

With this bit of movement, he proved that family is more important to him than anything else through his action.

“Family is not an important thing. It’s everything.”

Butler posted a picture on Instagram that read, “Family is not an important thing. It’s everything.”

Jimmy led a very troubled childhood and life until he made it to the National Basketball Association; maybe that is why he has been paying so much attention, providing the utmost care to his daughter, and has kept her at the top of his priority list.

As far as we can tell, he wants to give his daughter the life he wished he had as a child, the life he never had a chance to live.

He had to grow up without a father or a mother.

Jimmy Butler’s Troubled Childhood

Unknown to many, Jimmy had to go through a series of misfortune and tragedies since his early and late childhood.

His life story is no different than Hollywood motivational movies. His father cold-heartedly left his mother and him to thrive on their own while Jimmy was just a poor infant.

Later, Jimmy’s mother kicked him out of the house for a heart-breaking and idiotic reason; she reportedly said that she did not like the look on his face.

Jimmy was just 13 years old at the time. Imagine the psychological pain and suffering a 13-year-old kid had to go through being kicked out by his biological mother.

He started living here and there, one after another, in his friends’ houses.

He lived as long as possible at one’s and would move onto another’s before eventually being adopted by one of his friend’s parents.

Because it was Jordan’s parents who decided to adopt Jimmy.

Relationship with his family

Despite having seven children, Jordan’s parents would let Jimmy stay in their house while, at the initial phase.

When Jimmy’s stay would be near unwelcome, one of the seven kids would request and ask if Jimmy could stay a bit longer.

This pattern repeated for a while, and eventually, Jordan’s parents decided to let Jimmy remain for as long as he wanted.

This decision by Michelle Lambert, Jordan’s mother, and Michael Lambert, Jordan’s father, would prove to be golden as they turned a homeless kid’s life around and paved the way for him to be an NBA star.
