Stephanie White partner Lisa Salters is a sideline reporter for ESPN Network. The power couple lives together in Nashville Tennessee.
White has been pretty open about her relationship and also strongly advocates for same-gender affinity and the LGBT community as a whole.
It is no surprise that several WNBA players, coaches, and former athletes have come out publicly in recent years. Per Interbasket, around 29% of the players in the women's national basketball league identify themselves as LGBTQ in 2022.
One notable representative is Stephanie, the current head coach of Connecticut Sun. She boasts an array of coaching experience, beginning with her first role as an assistant coach for the Ball State Cardinals in 2003.
Following stints with the Cardinals, Kansas Stae, Toledo Rockets, Chicago Sky and Indiana Fever as an assistant coach, White was appointed as the head coach of the Fever for the 2015 and 2016 WNBA seasons.
Moreover, she served as the head coach of the Vanderbilt Commodores women's basketball team from 2016-21 before joining Connecticut Suns.
The 5 feet 9 inches tall Stephanie also played in the WNBA from 1999-2003. She represented Charlotte Sting and Indiana Fever back in the day.

Stephanie is currently in a budding relationship with ESPN correspondent Lisa Salters. The dazzling couple have been together for three years.
White first shared her photo with Lisa via Instagram on May 8, 2021. Since then, she has shared an abundance of couple photos on her socials providing a glimpse into her personal life and relationship status.
They went out for a date night on 15 September 2021 at the Optimist Restaurant in Nashville. A month later, they relished a fabulous time at Woodinville Wine Country in Seattle.
They also attended the game of the Tennessee Titans at Nissan Stadium on January 22, 2022. Moreover, the stunning duo made great memories whilst spending quality time together in Napa and Castro.
While Lisa was doing her reporting duties on the 2022 NBA Finals, Stephanie was also present at the TG Garden to watch Game 3 of the Finals.
Their love story has kept on growing stronger with each passing day as they had fun-filled celebrations during Christmas and Valentine's Day.
Lisa Salters Is A Veteran Sportscaster
Lisa is a former basketball player for the Lady Lions from 1986-87. She holds the record for being the shortest player in school history at 5'2".
Salters initially attended Upper Merion Area High School and later graduated with a bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism from Penn State University in 1988.
She then started her broadcasting career as a correspondent for the ABC affiliate news service, where she also covered the O. J. Simpson case.
Lisa then embarked on a journey with ESPN in 2000 and has earned a great reputation over the last 23 years in the media. She currently serves as a sideline reporter for the network's coverage of NBA on ABC and Monday Night Football.
In recognition of her notable contributions over two decades, the veteran sportscaster was inducted into the Montgomery County Chapter of the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame on October 13, 2017.
However, Lisa Salters recently made headlines for saying she hadn't watched the two-time NBA MVP Nikola Jokic play before the first game of the Conference Finals against the LA Lakers.
While people backlashed over her comment, Salters later clarified it was because she had not covered a game in Denver for nearly a decade.
Stephanie White Ex Wife
Stephanie White was previously married to Michelle Fletcher. Despite having three kids together, they came out publicly only in 2015.
They first met at a bar in Boston, talked for a considerably longer time period, and exchanged numbers. Michelle was instantly attracted to her and had instantly developed the thoughts of marrying year.
While White was an assistant coach of Toledo Rockets during the 2006-07 season and Fletcher was working at Disney World in Florida, their connection started to grow further, mostly via phone calls.
Although they stayed in an affinity for more than a decade, they decided to part ways later. They kept it personal without disclosing much in the media. It was only after White posted her pictures with Lisa across socials, news about their split circulated more.
But before all this, Stephanie White was in fact in a conjugal relationship with Brent McCarty. They were high school sweethearts from Seeger High School in West Lebanon, Indiana.
Stephanie White husband Brent McCarty tied the knot in 1998 and they divorced four years later in 2002. Recalling back to the days, White talked about being immature and struggling with her own identity.
The Connecticut head coach was having a tough time and even after the divorce, it took her a few years to regroup and be in a relationship.
Stephanie White Children
Stephanie White kids are Landon White, Aiden White, and Avery White. Landon is the oldest in the lineage, while Aiden and Avery are twins.
Landon turned 11 years old on September 27, 2022, as Stephanie took to Instagram to wish him a happy birthday and expressed her happiness.
Landon was actually surprised about boys playing basketball when Stephanie took him to an NBA game when he was only two years old.
Since he used to go with his mom to the training sessions and watch girls play all the time, he thought the game was only for females. Stephanie was an assistant coach of Indiana Fever in the WNBA during that time.
Likewise, twin brothers Aiden and Avery were born on August 3, 2013. Their photos are all over the Instagram timelines of the Connecticut coach.
Now that she is dating Lisa Salters, there is also another little boy in the family. Lisa has a son named Samuel Salters, whom she adopted in 2013.
As the little boys were growing up, Stephanie didn't want them to feel any different and decided to speak up about her identity openly in 2015.
A few years down the lane, it is pretty obvious that she has been able to provide the right guidance, care, and unconditional love to her offspring.
Stephanie White family is now talked about with high admiration and inspiration, not in the WNBA arena but across various media platforms.
