If you are an NBA fan then there is no way that you don’t know or haven’t heard about a professional American basketball player and NBA legend Dennis Rodman. I mean you would not even be here in the first place if you did not know who he is.
Anyways as you know we are not here to talk about him but instead, we are here to talk about his oldest daughter Alexis Rodman. Dennis was not around his daughter in her childhood so she grew up without any father figure in her life but that does not mean they are on bad terms. They are really close now and things look good between them.
However, it’s been a while that Alexis has not come across any media so fans are wondering where she is now and what she is doing. To find out where and what she is doing these days, read the full article.
Who is Alexis Rodman?
Alexis was born in September of 1988, in California, United States. She is currently 33 years old. Her exact date of birth is September 28, 1988, and according to her date of birth, her zodiac sign is Libra.
She is the oldest daughter of Dennis Rodman and his first wife former model Annie Bakes. Alexis has a mixed family background in Africa and America. She holds an American nationality as she was born in the United States. Growing up she was alienated as she did not get the love and attention she needed from her father as he was not much around her.
We could not find anything regarding her educational background so we don’t have any idea on where or which high school and university she went to.
Her Parents Marriage & Divorce
According to various sources, Alexis’ father Dennis, and mother Annie met for the first time in between the 1980s and started dating in 1987. After a few years, they were blessed with their daughter Alexis but they decided to split up when she was still a baby but then again they patched up after a few months.
They then decided to get married and their wedding took place on Alexis’ fourth birthday, September 28, 1992. While everything seemed fine but it was not, Dennis and Annie could not protect their relationship and decided to go their separate ways so they got divorced in 1993.
Alexis Followed Her Father’s Bad Habits
In 1997, Annie told in an interview with Chicago Tribune that Alexis is following her dad’s bad habits. For example, she beat up a girl while they were playing basketball and when she was asked why she did that she told them, “Well, Daddy does it.”
She had an anger issue and Annie even said that Alexis blamed her (Annie) for letting Dennis go away from them. It seems that Alexis was really bothered by the fact that her parents were divorced and she had to live without a father figure as Annie explained further that Alexis keeps saying to her friends at school that her father has a girlfriend and he does not come to see her.
As mentioned she had an anger issue which is why she even had to take classes for anger management. Fortunately, it was just a childhood tantrum and it did not follow her after she became an adult. And if you’re wondering if Dennis really did not visit her then yes, he did not visit her even once as per the sources, so Alexis thanks her mother for all the happiness she has now.
What Does Alexis Do Now?
Alexis does not seem to want any media attention so it’s very rare to see her at public events but we got lucky as we got to see her in 2014 when she went to the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.
But it was not her alone, the only time we see her at some events is with her father and just like that even at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week she went with her father. Seeing them together shows that everything Alexis had felt because of her father has gone now.
They are really close now and I am sure that she has forgiven her father for not being around her when she was a child. They seemed really happy, spending time together.
Is Alexis Single or in a Relationship?
What do you think? take a guess, well if you are thinking that she is single then I am sorry to break this to you but she is not single, as a matter of fact, she is a married woman, she has now been married for almost 8 years and not only that but she is also the mother of one child.
She is married to a man named Robert Bunfill and their wedding took place in Citrus Heights, California, on August 30, 2014. There is no information on how or where the two met but one thing is for sure they had a love marriage and before getting married they dated for a while.
It was only after her father’s tweet that people get to know that Alexis was married. On June 25, 2017, Dennis posted a tweet where he congratulated Alexis and her husband for their first child. We don’t know the exact date of birth of her son but it is certain that he was born in June 2017. Her son’s name is Vincent.
Her Half-Siblings are Athletes
While Alexis does not have any siblings, she does have half-siblings from her father’s third wife Michelle Moyer. Her half-brother Dennis Rodman Jr. was born on April 25, 2001, in Newport Beach, California, United States, and her half-sister Trinity Rodman on May 20, 2002, in Newport Beach, California, United States.

Even though they are her half-siblings, it seems that they are not that close as both of her half-siblings have not shared any pictures with her in any of their social media posts.
