Meet the Wives of Your Favorite NFL Players

Russell Wilson and Ciara

The power couple co-owns the Seattle Sounders Soccer Team. Wilson and Ciara started making headlines when they attended the 2015 White House State Dinner together.

They had a short, four-month engagement before getting married in 2016. The reason why they rushed to the altar might shock you…

Russell Wilson and Ciara

The pair took a vow of celibacy until marriage. Then, just three months after their wedding, the singer announced her pregnancy.

Sounds like it didn’t take them too long to figure out what to do, because the couple has welcomed two children into the world since tying the knot.

Travis Kelce and Kayla Nicole

Way back in 2016, the Kansas City Chiefs tight end had his own dating show on E! called Catching Kelce. Things didn’t work out with the winner of the short-lived show, but shortly after he met his now-girlfriend Kayla Nicole.

They went public with their relationship in May 2017 and love to show some seriously adorable PDA on their Instagram pages.

JJ Watt and Kealia Ohai

JJ Watt and Kealia Ohai have reportedly been friends for years, but they took their relationship to the next level in early 2017. The Houston Texans defensive end popped the question in May 2019.

The adorable couple finally tied the knot earlier this year with a tropical ceremony in the Bahamas.

Ohai is a professional athlete as well. After graduating college, she was selected as the second overall pick in the 2014 NWSL College Draft by The Houston Dash and is now a midfielder and forward.

Fun fact: Her older sister, Megan Cushing, is married to former Texans linebacker Brian Cushing!

Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari

The NFL star and The Hills alum had their own reality show on E!, Very Cavallari, which followed them as they navigated Cutler’s retirement, Cavallari’s new business ventures with her jewelry store, Uncommon James, and life with their three children. Although they eventually became “couple goals,” they had a bit of a rough start back in 2009…

On the web series “A Drink With,” Cavallari shared that Cutler initially asked her out through his publicist. “I didn’t know who he was! I had to Google him. I was in the middle of filming The Hills so I was like, ‘I don’t want a boyfriend in Chicago,’ and I passed on it." Then a year later, they met in a more organic way at a Chicago Bears preseason game. They also got engaged twice in 2011 before welcoming their first child in 2012 and finally tying the knot in 2013.

Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari

Sadly, the famous couple announced their separation in 2020 amidst the coronavirus pandemic. They had just returned from quarantining as a family in the Bahamas. Jay filed first, on April 21st. However, in her own divorce documents, Kristin listed the official date of separation as April 7th. Details surrounding the divorce continue to get messier and messier...

Apparently, despite both parties filing for divorce, they continue to live in the same giant house together—just on opposite sides. The two are currently fighting over custody of their three children.

Adrian Peterson and Ashley Brown Peterson

The football star got engaged to Ashley Brown in 2010 and had a four-year engagement before finally tying the knot in 2014. Peterson has fathered anywhere from seven to nine kids with a few different women, including his wife...whom he met in college. One rumored mistress, who was pregnant at the same time as his wife, asked for $1.9 million in child support, according to TMZ.

Peterson’s alleged mistress (although it’s unclear if it’s the same one; the boy stays busy) came forward about an alleged affair with the football player in 2018. She exposed the dirty messages he sent her and claimed they had a secret relationship.

Adrian Peterson and Ashley Brown Peterson

Both Peterson and Brown have yet to comment on the alleged affair(s). On a lighter note, Brown posed for Playboy once in a “Girls of the Big 12” series.

These days, she owns a makeup company called Elizabella Cosmetics and runs a nonprofit called A&A Peterson Family Foundation, which “aims to improve quality of life through resources and economic development.” Sounds like she has a very kind and patient heart to put up with her husband’s antics…

Alvin Kamara and Just Ace

Although there’s no official confirmation of their relationship via social media, the New Orleans Saints player has been spotted out recently with a stripper who goes by the name Just Ace.

Pictures of them in the Bahamas together made the rounds, and Kamara took to Twitter shortly after to address rumors about his love life: “People be so mad when you single and mindin ya own business”.

Just Ace works at Magic City in Atlanta. Her Instagram page is very colorful, both in the outfits (or lack thereof) and captions departments!

Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen

Tom and Gisele met in 2006 and tied the knot in 2009. And although they're now known as one of the most solid, long-lasting power couples in Hollywood, they've definitely experienced their fair share of ups and downs—one of which happened very soon after they started dating.

Gisele opened up about their trying time in her 2018 memoir: "Two months into our relationship, Tom told me that his ex-girlfriend was pregnant. The very next day, the news was everywhere and I felt my world had been turned upside down."

Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen

Gisele is one of the top supermodels in the world. She was credited with ending the "heroin chic" era of modeling by replacing it with what Vogue called "The Return of the Sexy Model" in 1999, and she was a Victoria's Secret Angel from 2000-2007.

Brady is obviously one lucky guy (in more ways than one)!

Aaron Rodgers and Danica Patrick

The two athletes met at the ESPYs back in 2012 and have remained friends over the years. Rodgers broke up with longtime girlfriend Olivia Munn in the Spring of 2017, and Patrick broke up with NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. later that same year.

In her health and fitness book, Pretty Intense, Patrick shared that the couple enjoys working out together, playing games, and reading the same books.

Aaron Rodgers and Danica Patrick

Danica Patrick is the most successful woman in the history of American open-wheel racing, and currently the only woman ever to win an IndyCar Series race.

She retired from racing in 2018, and she said on The Joe Rogan Experience that she froze her eggs as an "insurance policy", so hopefully this power couple will produce even more athletes someday soon!

Patrick Mahomes and Brittany Matthews

The NFL star just celebrated his 7th anniversary with long-time love Brittany Matthews. Matthews marked the occasion on Instagram with a cute picture of the two and a caption that addressed the big elephant in the room: “To everyone that’s gonna ask when we are getting married, the answer is whenever we want.”

They have two pitbulls together named Steel and Silver.

Le'Veon Bell and His Two Girlfriends

You know how they say when you play with fire you get burned? Well, that's what happened to Le'Veon Bell, who thought he could manage two girlfriends at once.

But he learned his lesson in May 2019 when more than $500,000 worth of jewelry went missing from his house...

(Images via Instagram [1] [2] & Facebook)

Le'Veon Bell and His Two Girlfriends

According to The Associated Press, Bell came home from the gym to find his closet "in disarray" and "all his jewelry was missing."

The names of the two women have not been released, but Bell posted an Instagram Story before the incident with the caption "MINE". Giana Milani and "Lil marlie" were tagged as well.

Rob Gronkowski and Camille Kostek

Kostek is a former Patriots cheerleader, and the pair was introduced after she quit the squad in 2015. The NFL star retired in the Spring of 2019.

Ben Roethlisberger and Ashley Harlan

Roethlisberger and Harlan met way back in 2005, after her brother, a Steelers superfan, introduced himself to Big Ben. They later married in 2011, but not before overcoming some serious rough patches...

Ben Roethlisberger and Ashley Harlan

Roethlisberger was accused of sexually assaulting a casino hostess in 2008. Then, in 2010, he was accused of the same crime again against a Georgia college student. The charges were later dropped. Harlan, meanwhile, works in the cardiac surgery department at a Pittsburgh hospital.

The couple now has three children together.

Baker Mayfield and Emily Wilkinson

According to ESPN, the Cleveland Browns quarterback was introduced to the Nebraska native by a mutual friend back in 2017. Although she turned down his advances for several months (he would reportedly follow and unfollow her on Instagram repeatedly, very charming), she eventually caved and agreed to go on a date with him before his final college football game.

They got engaged within six months of dating and were married in California July 2019.

Baker Mayfield and Emily Wilkinson

Up until she moved in with Mayfield in 2018, Wilkinson worked as a patient coordinator at a plastic surgery clinic in LA. Before then, she worked as a bartender.

These days, when she's not supporting her husband at his games, she's making money off of Instagram endorsements.

Luck credits Pechanec for helping him get through a shoulder injury that caused him to sit out for an entire season back in 2017. He told Quarterback, "It isn't just that she was willing to do anything she could to help me. It's that she's tough. She knows what training is like, what it's like to feel pain, and what it's like to have to work really hard. There's no way I could get through those two months without her."

Pechanec also has a nonprofit called Nest that advocates for ethically conscious products and has a professional background in gymnastics.

Deandre Hopkins and Iggy Azalea

Although the Houston Texans wide receiver is currently single, he most recently dated rapper Iggy Azalea in 2018. Their short-lived relationship began via flirty comments on Instagram. 

According to People Magazine, the day after Azalea confirmed their relationship in an interview with Y100 Miami, Hopkins tweeted out "Ya'll [sic] know I can care less about social media, but ya boi is SINGLE!!"

(Image via Facebook)

Deandre Hopkins and Iggy Azalea

Azalea reflected on the demise of their relationship to Yahoo Lifestyle later, saying that "the unfortunate thing is that when you're public, there are elements of everybody knowing [about your relationship] that don't exist when it's a secret...I'm used to it and it's my choice to be in this environment because I'm an artist, but people like DeAndre aren't artists and they don't want [attention]. And I understand that."

But apparently there are no hard feelings; she also said that "he's a really good person. DeAndre is a nice guy, but eventually you have to tell everybody because you can't keep your life secret forever.

Ryan Fitzpatrick and Lisa Barber

Fitzpatrick met his wife during their time attending Harvard. They tied the knot in 2006 and now have seven children together—which sounds like a circus to some, but Fizpatrick’s motto is apparently the more the merrier. He told the New York Post, “Each time I have another kid, it becomes that much merrier and more fulfilling.”

(Image via Twitter)

Ryan Fitzpatrick and Lisa Barber

The couple has more than just Harvard in common; Barber was also an athlete in college! She played soccer for the Crimson and was a captain during her senior year.

She’s a FIFA Women’s World Cup Champion and plays as a midfielder for the Chicago Red Stars of the National Women’s Soccer League—which is the highest division of women’s professional soccer in the U.S. Zach even has a U.S. national team jersey with “Mr. Ertz” on the back that he wears to support his wife.

Eric Decker and Jessie James Decker

The power couple got married in 2013 and now have three children together. They briefly had a reality show on E!, but it was short-lived because Jessie got a couple of producers fired.

(Image via Instagram)

Eric Decker and Jessie James Decker

They met through mutual friends. According to the singer's book, Just Jessie: My Guide to Love, Life, Family, and Food, “he asked my friend for my number and texted me right away.” After talking over the phone for five weeks, the NFL star flew out to Nashville. She told Elite Daily, “on the way to me taking him to the airport he asked me to be his girlfriend, literally like an 8th grader.”

(Image via Instagram)

Danny Amendola and Olivia Culpo

After dating Nick Jonas and then Tim Tebow, Culpo set her sights on the Detroit Lions wide receiver in 2016.

They had a very on-and-off-again relationship, ending things for the first time in 2018 because he was traded to the Miami Dolphins (and Culpo didn’t want to move to Florida), but ended things for good in 2019, and it didn’t seem to end too amicably…

(Image via Facebook)

Danny Amendola and Olivia Culpo

When Culpo was spotted out with a new man soon after their most recent breakup, Amendola posted on social media that “the only thing I care about is her HAPPINESS. And if that’s dancing with scrony [sic] little f—cks, so be it. I’m happy too.” Culpo later responded to the pettiness by suggesting that Amendola wasn’t exactly faithful throughout their tumultuous relationship.

She posted a picture from an SI photo shoot: “This was one of my hardest days for personal reasons (as some of you may remember). I landed in Australia to shoot these photos with some info that rocked my world.”

Matthew Stafford and Kelly Stafford

The Detroit Lions quarterback married the former University of Georgia cheerleader in 2015. They have three children together.

And they’re really taking the “in sickness and in health” part of their vows seriously…

(Image via Instagram)

Matthew Stafford and Kelly Stafford

Kelly recently underwent 12-hour brain surgery. In early 2019, she started to experience vertigo. An MRI revealed that she had a benign tumor resting on her cranial nerves.

Kelly has been extremely open with the healing process on her Instagram, and claims that she and her husband “grew as individuals, as a couple, and as parents going through what we went through so I wouldn’t change it for the world…but I know I speak for both of us when I say we are very ready for football. So here is to season 11.”

Tyreek Hill and Crystal Espinal

Hill was accused of breaking the couple’s 3-year-old son’s arm in March 2019. In April, an audio clip of Hill telling his fiancé “You need to be terrified of me too, bitch” was released. And this wasn’t the couple’s first rodeo; back in 2015, Hill was charged with domestic battery after an altercation with his then-pregnant fiancé. He pleaded guilty and was given a three-year probation sentence.

Despite Hill’s record and the evidence, The NFL later announced they would not suspend the Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver as their four-month investigation couldn’t conclude that he had violated the league’s personal conduct policy.

Tyreek Hill and Crystal Espinal

The couple seems to have split since the incident, and Espinal is now seeking child support for their twins and full custody with supervised parenting time for Hill. She met Hill when they attended the University of Oklahoma together.

Drew Brees and Brittany Brees

Drew and Brittany started dating while in college at Purdue, but the football player hasn't always been so smooth with his moves! "I made a real fool out of myself when I first met her," he told ESPN the Magazine. "It was my 20th birthday and I'd had about 17 shots and put my foot in my mouth. It was a typical football player cheesy line—we'll leave it at that. It took me six months to get the courage to talk to her again." 

Brittany told the same magazine that all her friends wanted to witness their first date because "he was That Guy Who Had Made Such a Fool of Himself. So he brought some of his football friends and we went to the movies."

(Image via Twitter)

Drew Brees and Brittany Brees

But first impressions aren't everything; the couple got married in 2003 and now has four children together. Brittany recently threw a surprise party in honor of Drew's 40th birthday—just hours after the Saints defeated the Eagles in the Divisional Round of playoffs.

She told The Advocate that the party was on a weekend "so it wouldn't distract the guys' preparation for the playoff games."

Jadeveon Clowney and Najah Ré

The Texans defensive end has been dating makeup artist Najah Martin for several years now. Martin gave birth to their son, Jahlil, in October 2015.

Things are currently going well for the Oakland Raider and his girlfriend. They both have children from previous relationships and share one child together. They recently vacationed in Hawaii together and shared all their intimate moments on Instagram. But things haven’t always been so peachy between them…

(Image via Facebook)

Antonio Brown and Chelsie Kyriss

In January 2019, Kyriss accused Brown of domestic violence. No arrest was made, but Brown took to social media to clear his name and smear his girlfriend’s. Shortly after, Brown asked to be traded from the Steelers after a feud with Ben Roethlisberger (who was initially the one who pushed the couple together!).

(Image via Instagram)

Amari Cooper and Destiny Jones

The Dallas Cowboys player has been rumored to be dating Destiny Jones since he was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in 2015. They keep their relationship super private, but he has posted two pictures of her on his Instagram to date.

(Image via Instagram)

Amari Cooper and Destiny Jones

Although she has the same name as rapper Nas’s daughter, they are two different people. In fact, not much is known about Cooper’s rumored girlfriend other than the fact that she graduated from Alabama State University in 2018.
