This adorable couple hooked up in high school. As childhood sweethearts, one thing they share is extraordinary athleticism. Brittany Matthews played professional soccer for an Iceland team. In her first year, the team won the league championship. Patrick Mahomes, for his part, had a stellar start with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2018. He scored 50 touchdowns and ran 6,000 yards in his first year. That season he earned the NFL MVP award.
Meanwhile, Matthews launched Brittany Lynne Fitness, a celebrity fitness website offering specialized training programs.
Golden Tate & Elise Tate
New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate proposed to Elise on September 12, 2015, back in the days when he was scoring touchdowns for the Lions. His story of secretly surprising her with the perfect ring is worth sharing. He told The Knot, “I flew Chase [Gregory] out (literally with a case of loose diamonds) to examine each one myself and pick the perfect rock. From there, we designed the setting and band.”
By now, they have two children. A little controversy arose after trying to conceive baby number two. The fertility medication caused a false-positive for performance-enhancing drugs forbidden by the NFL. After signing a $37.5 million contract with the Giants, he began fertility treatment in April. The random testing results cost him a four-game suspension and $1.2 million of lost salary.
Donald Penn & Dominique Penn
After an injury and well over a decade with the league, offensive tackle Donald Penn’s career may be trickling out with a one-year contract with the Washington Redskins. But he’s had an astounding career guarding quarterbacks for the Vikings, the Buccaneers, and the Raiders. In a rare move, he signed to the NFL as a free agent when the Minnesota Vikings brought him on in 2006.
Dominique Penn came into his life after they married in 2012. They have three children together. As a proud NFL wife, she starred in WAGS LA until E! canceled the show. At the end of it, she said, “It was a great experience for me because it came right on time, but I don’t think it really showed who I was.” She pointed out that she has her own business, and she’s into women empowerment, and those parts were left out.
Eric Johnson & Jessica Simpson
Country-pop star and fashion magnate Jessica Simpson is happily married with three children. If you’re asking, “Who is Jessica Simpson married to?” You are not alone. Most people will recall her performance at Super Bowl XXXVIII before they can say which NFL team hubby Eric Johnson signed with.
So, here it is: Johnson played for the San Francisco 49ers six of his seven seasons with the league. Out of Yale, he was picked No. 7 in the 2001 draft. His career net worth of $10 million seems pretty solid, that is until you compare it with his superstar wife. Jessica Simpson has raked in a net worth of $200 million. Meanwhile, success remains sweet as the chart-topping artist continues to record music and design clothing for her trendy label.
Aaron Ross & Sanya Richards-Ross
Cornerback Aaron Ross is a two-time Super Bowl winner with the NY Giants, the team that snagged him in the first round of the 2007 NFL Draft. He also landed on the rosters of the Jaguars, Ravens, and Browns. He sprints the 40-yard dash in 4.44 seconds, but that’s nothing compared with his wife, four-time Olympic Gold Medalist track and field athlete Sanya Richards.
The Jamaican-born Olympian ran the 4x400 meters relay at 2004, 2008, and 2012 Summer Olympics. People also know her for Glam and Gold. The reality show following the busy entrepreneur’s hectic daily schedules and routines premiered in 2013. She co-owns two companies, plus a nonprofit. Today she is the proud mother of son “AJ.” The question on everyone’s mind is: track and field or football?
