Mariah Bird’s Parents
Mariah’s parents, Larry Bird and Dinah Mattingly would be two people who ended up meeting while they attended college at Indiana State University. Once the two met, it was almost like love at first site. This would lead the two to decide that they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together and get married on October 31, 1989. This would not be a rash decision made by them, as the two were dating exclusively for several years at this point. When they were originally married, Larry and Dinah would not have any kids.
It is for this reason that the two would decide that they wanted to adopt their children, opposed to having them the more traditional way. The two would end up adopting one boy and one girl, their names being Connor Bird and Mariah Bird. While these two would be the only children that Larry and Dinah would have together, Larry actually had another daughter from his previous marriage to Janet Condra, his first wife.
Born on August 14, 1977, Corrie Bird would be the result of Larry Bird and his first wife Janet Condra. Unfortunately, the relationship between the two would not last and a divorce would eventually happen, there is no doubting that fact that Larry and his daughter were more than excited to add to their family with Connor and Mariah.
