The beautiful Cassandra Ferguson made quite the impression on Juan Pablo Galavis this season on The Bachelor, and for a good reason. The 5’10” former Detroit Pistons dancer captured a fair amount of screentime on Season 18 before getting sent home in New Zealand on Episode 6 — her birthday! And while we miss her every day, we bet Juan Pabs is even sadder that he sent her home. One reason? She’s a single mom. But just FYI, she totally has a famous baby daddy.
According to Reality Steve, the man who made a mama of 22-year-old Cassandra — with son Trey, who is the cutest thing ever — is Rodney Stuckey. Never heard of him? Then you might not be a sports fan, as the 27-year-old is a basketball player for the — you guessed it — Detroit Pistons! Born in Seattle, Washington in 1986, Rodney played for Eastern Washington University for two years before hitting the NBA draft.
In 2007, the 6’5” point guard started playing for Detroit, and he currently makes 8.5 million dollars a year, according to Basketball-Reference.com. Strangely, Rodney’s Wikipedia page doesn’t mention Trey, who turned two in October 2013. However, a 2007 article from The Seattle Times mentions that Rodney also had a 2 ½-year-old daughter at the time, making her around eight now.
While Cassandra and Rodney most likely met through their Pistons connection, Cass no longer dances for the team. She currently works as a freelance makeup artist, and with her insane beauty, she gets plenty of work modeling. We hope that now that she's a few months out from the end of her stint on The Bachelor, she's happily entertaining her gorgeous little boy with stories of her adventures. But, just a pro tip, leave JPG out of the regaling...
