The article also indicated that she stayed with Alvin in Miami during his training for the 2019 season. The player has been so discreet, to the degree that the rumored affair has never seen the light. According to the report, the insider also said that it’s possible that the football player must have told Just Ace not to post on social media also.

The two have been dating since 2015. There is no news about engagement yet, but wedding bells are probably ringing for this loving couple. With their net worth, loans or home finance will not be a burden for them.

TODD GURLEY AND OLIVIA DAVIDSON
Todd Gurley and Olivia Davidson used to dominate each other’s social media accounts, but it looks like everything has changed. Although it’s yet to be confirmed if these two are still together, there is mounting evidence that they may have broken-up. It has been a while since they posted a photo of them together or of one another. Although it’s not enough proof that they aren’t a thing anymore, it’s a big deal in this day and age.
Anyhow, whether they’re still together or not, Olivia is known for being Todd’s long-time girlfriend. They first met in 2014 when they’re probably getting their degrees at the University of Georgia. At the time, the 26-year-old running back was already building a football career. On the other hand, Olivia had her own business—an online retail store called Liv Lively. Both hard at work, they should have been the perfect couple together, but who knows, Todd and Olivia may have only kept their relationship private.
JULIO JONES AND JASMINE VILLEGAS
Julio Jones’ life has been a mystery. The 31-year-old wide receiver has been mum about his personal life, especially his love life. Whenever he gives interviews, the Atlanta Falcons player tries his best not to give anything away about his relationship—that is, if he has any. Anyhow, if Julio doesn’t want to talk about it, he can’t stop the rumors surrounding him.
Earlier reports revealed that he was once linked to the singer Jasmine Villegas after they were seen watching the NBA games together. Although we should give them the benefit of the doubt, no one really knew if they were dating. There were also claims that he had an ex-girlfriend named Michelle Shazier, who is now married to Ryan Shazier – but it seems questionable as well. If there’s one thing that we now know about Julio, it’s he’s good at keeping secrets to a high degree.
CHRISTIAN MCCAFFREY AND OLIVIA CULPO
Rumors about Christian McCaffrey and Olivia Culpo’s relationship started swirling in July 2019. Since then, they were often seen out and about, displaying major PDA. However, although they were already a thing, the couple chose to be mum about their romance. Only a source confirmed that they were already in a relationship, and it had been going for a long time.
Credits to their mutual friends, they had been the way for these two to meet each other. The moment they met, everything seemed to fall in the right place as things were doing great between them. They also turned out to be a perfect fit, knowing that they liked a lot of similar stuff. Both Christian and Olivia are fond of working out and having dinner with friends. We wonder who uses his or her credit card to treat the other. In October 2020, they finally made their relationship Instagram-official by posting sweet photos of them together.
ANDREW LUCK AND NICOLE PECHANEC
From childhood sweethearts to husband and wife, this is the sweet love story of Andrew Luck and Nicole Pechanec. The two started their relationship when they were in college at Stanford University. Aside from being know-how when it comes to architectural design, they are also both athletes.
If Andrew was a quarterback, Nicole used to be a gymnast. She became the captain of a gymnastics team and was the only member who bravely competed on the floor in every meet. She also represented her country’s national team in the World Games and European Championships. Among many things, this might be one of the reasons why he fell in love with her and finally married her in 2019. With the right investment in hand, Andrew and Nicole tied the knot in Prague. It was the day they could never forget and might tell their one-year-old daughter, Lucy, in the future.
ADRIAN PETERSON AND ASHLEY BROWN
If there’s one thing that Adrian Peterson wants to be thankful for, it’s his wife, Ashley Brown. The Elizabella Cosmetics founder has been her husband’s strong support system since day one. Despite the controversies and run-ins with the law, Adrian has made it through with the help of his lawyer and Ashley.
The couple tied the knot in 2014, but they had been together for far longer than that. They first met at the University of Oklahoma in 2004, and it wasn’t revealed when they became an item. Rumors then started to emerge in 2010 that they were already engaged, although no one could confirm the news back then. MTO began to call her Adrian’s “fiancé,” although some said they got engaged in 2011 instead. Whatever the case might be, what’s important is they are now happily married and enjoying their lives as a family along with their kids.
DAVANTE ADAMS AND DEVANNE VILLAREAL
Devanne Villareal is the stunning wife of Davante Adams. Anyone would be mesmerized seeing her beauty, probably the same thing the Green Bay Packers’ wide receiver felt the moment he laid his eyes on her. The two first met when they were in college and started dating back then. Anyhow, when Davante was drafted, Devanne decided to continue her studies.
It might be one of the best decisions she ever made. She graduated from Fresno State and now an esthetician. No wonder Devanne has fair skin, although she may have made quite a hefty investment in it, too. With her beauty, Davante made sure he would never let her go, and so he popped the question in 2018. After a year, they finally tied the knot and now share a beautiful daughter named Daija Leigh. As Davante himself put it, they are now called the “Adams family.”
ODELL BECKHAM JR. AND LAUREN WOOD
Odell Beckham Jr. now confirms his relationship with Lauren Wood, a known Instagram personality.

She gets the credit for being part of MTV’s comedy series Wild ‘n Out.
She has a cult following on Instagram and even secured sponsorships with some of the biggest brands, like Fashion Nova, Pretty Little Thing, Hot Miami Styles, and Novex Hair Care. Aside from Beckham, she was once linked to Floyd Mayweather and Eric Moreland. No one knows when these two started dating, although they made their relationship on Instagram official on November 5, 2019, which happened to be Beckham’s birthday. Although the pic’s caption didn’t look romantic, it’s a sweet way of greeting him a happy birthday and praising his good soul.
NICK SIRIANNI AND BRETT ASHLEY CANTWELL
Brett Ashley Cantwell is one of the most famous Wives and Girlfriends (WAG) of a football personality—in this case of the football coach Nick Sirianni. Her husband is now the Philadelphia Eagles’ head coach, though he used to be Indianapolis Colts’ offensive coordinator. He also used to work for the San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs as the assistant coach.
Thanks to Brett’s sister, she convinced her to have a date with Nick. From then, the rest is history. The football coach luckily won her heart, and after dating for two years, he finally asked her hand in marriage. They officially got engaged in 2012, and a year later, they took the plunge in Kansas City. The lavish wedding seemed to be a result of wise investment planning, as Brett flaunted her beautiful ivory lace gown. Fast forward to today, they are happily living together with their three kids, Jacob, Miles, and Taylor.
URBAN MEYER AND SHELLEY MATHER MEYER
Urban Meyer and Shelley Mather Meyer have stood the test of time. They have been together for 37 years, and their love is like no other. The couple first met in 1984. At the time, they were still both studying at the University of Cincinnati, and Shelley was a nursing student. After five years of dating, the two got married. They were blessed with three kids, Nicole, Gisela, and Nathan, who are all grown-ups today.
Despite the credits of being Urban’s wife, Shelley never introduces herself as his spouse. She does her own thing and lives like an average person. She wants to work anonymously, so when people start to figure out who she is, she often gets the question, “why she didn’t say.” Anyhow, she’s not just a common better half. Shelley’s a psychiatric nurse and a spinning instructor. Although her life is simple, it’s a busy one.
GUS MALZAHN AND KRISTI MALZAHN
Gus Malzahn is undoubtedly thankful for his wife, Kristi Malzahn. She’s not only his life partner but also his work companion. Whenever the Auburn University head football coach gets weary of his work, he relies on his wife of almost 33 years. She helps him focus on his coaching job and connect with his players, especially if he’s getting too fierce. He also gets her second opinion about forward-thinking, and he has no idea where he will be without Kristi.
The couple always does things together, and if her husband is the team’s dad, well, she’s the mom. As the First Lady of Auburn football, it’s an investment she has made for Gus. She will even hug a lot of people at the end of the game, trying to make them feel comfortable. Kristi believes it’s her purpose, and she’s happy to have an opportunity to be a “light to people.”
GENE CHIZIK AND JONNA CHIZIK

They have identical twin daughters and a son.
Four years ago, he even left the coaching profession to be more involved in his family life, working on being a better husband to his wife and father to his children. After all, apart from having such a successful career, he has afforded quality education, earning a bachelor’s degree in education and a master’s degree in guidance and counseling. Choosing his family over his career simply after achieving financial stability is not only rewarding but is well deserved after working so hard for it, embracing the stress-free life with his family, as well as no longer feeling the pressure of being a football coach.
PAUL RHOADS AND VICKIE RHOADS
Paul Robert Rhoads is known for being the head coach of Iowa State for seven years and being the former defensive coordinator of the Arizona Wildcats. Having a wife who was a basketball player back in the day and having two sons who played football for Iowa State University meant that they are an extremely athletic family.
When Paul was recruiting his son, Jake, for the Iowa State, treating him like a recruit was essential and it worked. He was a coach when they were on the field and a dad at home. Not much is known about his wife, Vickie Rhoads, but it is known that she has even helped her husband determine the Curtis Bay successor, for she understood the uniqueness of the situation. Being former athletes meant that they have similar interests that keep the foundation of their marriage strong.

He is a husband to Mary Jane and a father of two – a son named Tommy and a daughter named Samantha. When he was given some time away from football, he then focused on his personal life.

He valued the time he spends with his wife and children, especially with his son, who is following in his father’s footsteps.
Additionally, Mary Jane and himself are both involved in the community, investment planning enables them to donate some of their time and resources to many organizations. Giving back was part of their way of life as a married couple.

They moved into their R44m Florida mansion, which is probably equipped with the best home security system.
Three months after they got married, their happy family expanded as they had the addition of three canines: Paris, Kobe, and Chunk. Moreover, the couple does intend to have children together, although there is no definite timeline as to when they would try to get pregnant. At least they have communicated and absolutely know that it is on their agenda. They have recently celebrated their first anniversary, and it seems that they love the married life, which they express on their social media accounts. The couple met at a charity event and have become inseparable since.

She is a soccer player at Division-II Anderson University in South Carolina. They have sports as one of their apparent shared interests plus the same religious belief.
Trevor, who was considered to be one of the best quarterback prospects of all time, would annually earn $2.4 million, a great sum for investments from an uprising football star. Although the NCAA stated that universities will not pay the athletes directly. For a young career-driven couple they surely are promising. Their future not only as couples but also as individuals look bright as the sun.
WILL MUSCHAMP AND CAROL DAVIS MUSCHAMP
The 49-year-old football coach William Lawrence Muschamp has been together with Carol Davis Muschamp since 1999. She grew up in Thomaston, Georgia, and was a kindergarten teacher while Will was just on his way to start a new job as a defensive backs coach when they wed in the 1990s. Not being able to afford a lavish honeymoon at the time, they stayed at a family friend’s beach house.
Almost a decade later, they were able to afford the lush life and are now with two sons, Whit and Jackson. Will has the listed base salary of $4.6 million, and with that much, they wouldn’t have to worry about loans. He now owns a 9,000-square-foot house in Lake Murray of Richland, South Carolina, worth $1.85 million. Currently, the former South Carolina head coach is in the running to be Texas’ new defensive coordinator.

Moving on to the superstar of Dallas Cowboys’ love life, Zeke doesn’t talk about it on social media, but his mom, Dawn Elliott, posted a picture of his girlfriend, Halle Woodard. Dawn said that she loves Halle like she was her own daughter, giving us a hint about Zeke’s lady love.
Even if the couple briefly broke up, they are now back together and are staying strong. The couple may be secretive about their relationship, and rumors of them being married are circulating, but it isn’t true. However, the couple will probably get there and we can’t wait to see Halle become Zeke’s wife.

The former couple met in high school but their relationship only became serious after graduating from Penn Hills High School. It was while their relationship was blooming that Aaron rose to prominence as a football player.

While on the subject, Nnamdi made his acting debut on The CW Network sitcom The Game. He was also considered as one of the breakout actors of the Sundance Film Festival in 2017 and as one of the best shutdown corners in the NFL. Talk about a jack of all trades, am I right?

Retired NFL player Eric Johnson was born in 1979 at Needham, Massachusetts. The NFL noticed him back in 2004, impressing them when he set the record for receptions for a tight end with 82 and tallied 825 yards and two touchdowns.
Eric and his wife Jessica Simpson met in 2010. That was when the whirlwind romance started causing their relationship to develop quickly. He was enrolled at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School at the time, attending a business program and working on his degree. However, he stopped his studies to be near Jessica. The lovebirds got married in Montecito, Santa Barbara County California, and they now have three children together. Their kids are Birdie Mae, Ace Knute, and Maxwell Drew Johnson.

The lovely athletic couple has been married since 2016. However, it took 9 months before they had their second date when they met back in 2012.
Admittedly, like any marriage, they’ve had their ups and downs. Struggling after becoming parents, they began having this weekly tradition which made them unreachable between 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm every Thursday for some alone time. This started after having their firstborn, and after having baby number two, it dawned on them that prioritizing their marriage is essential. Despite their busy schedule, they would still find time for date nights. The pair is stronger than ever and has become a lot closer, too.
JOSH ALLEN AND BRITTANY WILLIAMS
Josh Allen is one of the most successful NFL players in the world, he also happens to be one of the luckiest – all credits to his girlfriend of 3 years now, Brittany Williams. He is a star athlete and she is a cheerleader. This outstandingly gorgeous brunette has been a cheerleader all her life. She is young, pretty, successful in her career, and above all that, she is a loyal lover to the love of her life.
She has been with Josh through some of the most difficult times that the athlete had to face. At least he is never going to be alone anymore. In 2018, when Josh and his team were playing, she was cheering them on, and that’s when the two realized that their chemistry is one heck of a firework that can never be denied. What they had was more than just flirting and it deserved something so much more – something serious. In a caption in one of her Instagram stories, Brittany said that her crush for eight years is now finally her boyfriend! Talk about a real dream come true.
TRAVIS KELCE AND KAYLA NICOLE
Travis Kelce is a famous and successful NFL player. He and sports journalist Kayla Nicole have been on again off again for quite some time until it became a year of a whirlwind romance. It seems that everything they had to go through was worth it. Earlier this year, there have been some rumors of marriage. Although it hasn’t been confirmed yet, the athlete also doesn’t deny the idea. He said he definitely looks forward to marriage and settling down, while all Kayla can say about this is that she is so ready to become a wife. Credits to her honesty and confidence, she might just have the happily ever after with Travis, which a lot of people have been so eager about.
There were rumors of a split early last year, but thankfully just in time for Christmas, the two got back together. The holidays are probably the best way to show someone they matter since you want to spend the season with them. We’re glad that the two seemed all cozy and in love. It’s great that Kayla also understands that maybe he is just still trying to find joy after losing someone due to a tragic accident. After all, it won’t be long now since these two proved to us that they really are meant to be together forever.
TONY ROMO AND CANDICE CRAWFORD
Tony Romo is a popular and handsome NFL player; men adore him and women seem to have a crush on him, which his looks are to be credited for this. It is different when an athlete has both the skills and the looks – it only makes people more hyped and curious about them. Therefore, we know that Tony and Candice Crawford have been married for a decade now. Her brother, Chase Crawford, who also happens to be the actor who played Nate Archibald in the hit TV show Gossip Girl, opens up about his sister’s relationship with Tony and said he’s got nothing to worry about since Tony is a good friend. Chase seems to know his sister’s forever is going to be in good hands.
For those who don’t know, Candice is an American model from Texas. According to this beauty, their key to a happy relationship is to support each other through ups and downs, thick and thin. Their first date was actually really cute and sort of awkward for both their families, especially for the parents, since the two families were already close. Little did they know that there’s no need to set up their children since the two will eventually and ultimately find their way to each other.
MIKE FISHER AND CARRIE UNDERWOOD
Mike Fisher and Carrie Underwood are one of the most famous athlete-singer couples in Hollywood. Mike has been the best husband to the country superstar ever since the day they got married. Now, it’s been a strong 11 years for the two. He is a successful NFL player, and during Carrie’s career in music, he was always there cheering her on in the spotlight. He was also one of Carrie’s rocks when it comes to her surgery not too long ago.
Credits to Carrie’s voice and beauty, this star athlete can’t seem to stop falling head over heels for his wife every time she opens up her mouth to sing. She really is one of the most successful alumni of American Idol. Lately, her rendition of Hallelujah with John Legend is phenomenal! We cannot wait for their journey to an even stronger marriage finally become a happily ever after.
JAY CUTLER AND MADISON LECROY
Jay Cutler is a handsome, successful, and famous NFL star who also had some struggles with his previous marriage. He had a wife of over a decade, but unfortunately, the two didn’t seem to make it last any longer than that. Jay said he tried and failed – but at least he tried because it is always better to be hurt than do nothing. The two recently called it quits and had legally finalized their separation. A part of his moving on process is to take some time for himself, but then a gorgeous lady appeared unexpectedly. According to him, the first time he saw Madison LeCroy, he felt like he was willing to make an investment in their relationship, giving love and commitment one more try. Andy Cohen himself exposed the flirty messages these two shared over the last couple of weeks and they seem to be really hitting it off.
About 4 days ago, Madison shared a photo of her former husband to her social media page as some sort of a tribute, even though she already has a new man in her life. It seems like letting go is hard for her too, or maybe she is just acknowledging the fact that her past will be a part of her forever and that she’s proud of it. It can also be her way of full closure. They both had previous failed marriages and that’s what gave these two even more reasons to bond and heal each other. They seem to connect on a more and deeper emotional level, and it is surely the start of something new.
KELVIN HAYDEN AND TARAJI P. HENSON
Kelvin Hayden is one of the most successful and famous NFL athletes of all time. He fell in love with the brunette beauty with perfect golden skin and a smile that can melt and mesmerize the entire world – Taraji P. Henson. These two also had the romance of a roller coaster, they have been on-again, off-again with their relationship. The two even admitted that after 3 years of being in love, it was time to spend some time apart from each other. They went off and took a break but that doesn’t mean that they are not open for reconciliation in the future.
In an interview once, Kelvin revealed that the best component or ingredient to a healthy relationship is compromising. As soon as a person is open and ready to swallow the pride and compromise, that’s when everything is possible to fix. It is also the best way because by doing so, one can listen to the other party and not just stand on their own perspective on what’s right and what’s wrong. We are pretty sure these two are ready to make an investment in a deeper relationship. With some more strength and patience for one another, in no time, they will be back in each other’s arms. If not, we wish them nothing but the best in their individual lives!
DANNY AMENDOLA AND OLIVIA CULPO
Credits to his good looks, his attitude on the field and towards his teammates, and his ability and skills to play, Danny Amendola is one successful NFL player. He then fell in love with Miss Universe and Miss USA Olivia Culpo, which shows us all that his standards are indeed not low. The gorgeous beauty queen and the star athlete seemed to be the perfect pair that we never knew we needed, or maybe we knew all along that we needed two people together like them but we just didn’t expect it to happen nor believe it right in front of our very eyes.
These two gorgeous people are not just all about flaunting their looks; they have been helping each other out with stress and the pressure of life as well. The very beautiful Olivia was reportedly having some eating disorders the first months they were dating and Danny never left her side. As the years went by, they were going strong until the star athlete said that Olivia made his social media life hard and shocked the world that they broke up. She stayed quiet for days without any comments about her being described as someone social media controlling, only to come back with the best revenge ever – a sexy picture of her half-naked, with a snake wrapped around her body. Whatever happened with these two, what they had was true love and it was real. With something as special as they had, they probably can’t resist longer and will eventually agree to become good friends for old times’ sake.
GEORGE KITTLE AND CLAIRE TILL
George Kittle is a very successful NFL star, and unlike some of the star athletes who chose to have supermodels and beauty queens as their partners, George had his heart set on the beautiful Claire Till. He met his wife in Iowa when Claire was playing basketball. They have been happily married for 2 years now and counting. The two have such huge and great plans for their future and family, as they have their whole life ahead of them. George falls for another athlete like himself, and not just that, there a thousand reasons these two are so compatible. They are both strong, open-minded human beings, who seemed to stick and never give up on each other no matter what.
Claire apparently had been facing a lot of family challenges. She then met the love of her life, George, who helped her realize that there is nothing in the world that would make him change his mind about spending the rest of his life with her. This is why the female basketball player is so in love and thankful to George. Credits to his husband’s traits, she said there are 75 million reasons to celebrate her king in one of her social media posts. Indeed, there are.
SAM MARTIN AND NASTIA LIUKIN
Sam Martin is a famous and successful NFL player. He and Nastia Liukin have been in love for 3 years now. The two seem to be hitting it off very early on during their flirting stage and first casual dates, and eventually, they continue on to a more serious path in their relationship. Credits to these two for having one of the smoothest flowing relationships in the history of athlete couples. They are living proof that when two people are meant to be together and meant for each other, things should not be so hard. Even if they were, there’s no reason for them to make it even more complicated.
Just like every other athlete relationship, it is unclear when exactly these two first met or how, but witnessing their love story is enough for us to not question more. The lovely Nastia shared sweet photos of them during the 4th of July, showing off her beau, or, who seems to be her new beau at the time. Now they have conquered 3 years, and we are sure there are more years to come for this couple.
RICHARD SHERMAN AND ASHLEY MOSS
Richard Sherman and Ashley Moss are very much in love since they tied the knot 4 years ago. We are guessing athletes have a type – aside from the sexy woman they are so into, they also prefer strong and courageous women – it’s not necessarily just the outside but the inside that also matters. Richard is one very successful NFL star, and his wife, who is known to be very private, has spoken not so long ago that girls would swarm all over her husband. According to her, she’s got nothing to worry about since he has proved to her all these years that he’s only got eyes for her.
They have one child together which is a solid foundation for their relationship. While we are talking about foundations, they also decided to make an investment into a philanthropy foundation of their own in which recently they donated a whopping $100,000.
ROY WILLIAMS AND BROOKE DANIELS
Roy Williams and Brooke Daniels had what we call a whirlwind romance as they had the type of relationship in which they are on again and off again. Credits to their strong affection towards each other, these two always found their way back into each other in spite of their differences. In an interview once, Roy revealed that one of the hardest things he had to deal with is the actual relationship with the love of his life, but he always seemed to cope with it since he doesn’t have to do it alone. Brooke told him that she felt the same way. It’s amazing how much love can actually conquer. At some point in their roller coaster one-year relationship, Roy proposed to Brooke, and people thought that it would be smooth-sailing from then.
Apparently, not so long ago, the two called off their engagement as they were falling right back into their old patterns. They realized that this time, maybe it is for the best to end it once and for all. There have been some concerns regarding the engagement ring he gave to Brooke and why he wanted it back. There were even some legalities involved, but she eventually gave it back. People can’t seem to believe that a man as rich as Roy wants something like a ring back, or maybe it is just his way of reconciling with Brooke. Either way, we hope for the best for these two and we also have to agree with people that it is probably best that they just remain friends – maybe they will surprise themselves and realize they have found each other’ best friends all along and that friendship is a much more valuable relationship.
ANTONIO GATES AND SASHA DINDAYAL
Antonio Gates is a very popular and successful NFL star. He fell in love with the love of his life, the very beautiful Sasha Dindayal. The two had a brief flirting and dating stage, and it seems, they didn’t want to wait anymore. They officially tied the knot, making things official. They got married in San Diego, California, USA. These two clearly made an investment in the relationship, being understanding and committing to their marriage. They have now been together for more than one decade!
Sasha has to deal with the pressures of the spotlight as well. She’s also got a busy life that centers on her music career. Antonio did nothing but stick by her side and watched her blossom and bloom. He said she did exactly the same thing for him, and that marriage is always about the give-and-take process. It is a two-way street. Not so long ago she shut down her Instagram account when she got noticed for her bikini post. Don’t get us wrong – she looked stunning in that photo; maybe she was just afraid that the heat is too much especially for her husband and decided to put out any fire before they spread.
KYLE VAN NOY AND MARISSA POWELL
Kyle Van Noy and Marissa Powell can’t seem to get enough of each other when they both decided to share sweet cuddly photos of them on each of their social media pages. The handsome 29-year-old is very popular, and this in-demand star athlete has been married to beauty queen Marissa Powell since 2014. They got married at such a young age, which people might have considered a wrong decision. They proved them all wrong by still being by each other’s side after all these years. Kyle once revealed in an interview that while it’s true that they got married at an age of immaturity, the best thing they learned from all of it is that they grew up together and they learned the world and life together. He said there is no better person to share growth with than the person he loves.
In 2019, they welcomed their first child, and just when we think these two couldn’t be stronger and more committed to each other, they proved us wrong once again. They surely made an investment in their relationship.
STEPHEN GOSTKOWSKI AND HALLIE GOSTKOWSKI
Stephen and Hallie Gostkowski have been a couple for 13 years now. Stephen is a very successful and famous NFL athlete, who eventually decided to make an investment in a relationship. When he found the love of his life, he did not give her a chance to get away as she is his forever. The two tied the knot 13 years ago and fast-forward to now, they are still going strong.
Stephen opened up in an interview once that he’s had some pretty serious issues from his past especially during the time when he was just a lost boy. if he hadn’t met his wife, he would’ve been lost forever. She is one of the reasons why Stephen wanted to become a better man, and he’s actually undergone a few changes in order to become a much better guy for her. He said she keeps him grounded and flattered at the same time. She knows exactly just when to give him wings and when to pull him right back to the ground. That is the kind of path that he couldn’t have done alone. Recently, they bought a whopping $3.1 million home in Franklin and it looks like they are having the time of their life.
HANK BASKETT AND KENDRA WILKINSON
Hank Baskett is a success in his field of career. He is a popular NFL star who is good at what he does. He also had luck in love. His wife for nine years Kendra Wilkinson gets the credit from our athlete for making him a better person today than he was years back. Unfortunately, they didn’t hit the decade mark and left things unresolved after 9 years of being together. Now, the two decided to put a final end to things and called it quits once and for all.
Kendra also made some major decisions in her own personal life and her career. She left TV and the show business industry to pursue a career in real estate. She is no longer interested in the spotlight and has guaranteed herself a job in which she is more interested and invested. It looks like they both discovered parts of themselves that were supposed to be a mystery. These two seem to be in a good place right now and they remain to be very good friends.
SEAN MCVAY AND VERONIKA KHOMYN
At the age of 34, Sean McVay seems to have it all. He has been named the youngest NFL coach in history after he became the head coach of the Los Angeles Ram in 2017. He is also said to be a genius in football as McVay can remember all the plays that he made, even if it was years ago. He managed to take the Rams to the playoffs and The Superbowl. With that, it is no wonder he was named the coach of the year in 2017.
McVay is not just successful in his chosen career but also in his lovelife. McVay is engaged to his long-time girlfriend, Veronika Khomyn.

Biermann showed his devotion and love for his family to a degree when he adopted the two kids of Kim from previous relationships in 2013.

During the NFL drafting season in 2012, Tucker was said to be missed in the pick. Fortunately, he was given the chance by the Raven, which eventually paid off as he became an asset for the team.
