Kate Upton and baseball hubby Justin Verlander are on this list because even though Justin has a higher net worth, Kate is the one with the highest social currency. The “Sports Illustrated” model was the hottest it-girl in the 2010s, and her name is still way more recognizable than Justin’s. At one point, she was one of the highest-paid models in the world, raking in $7 million in just one calendar year.
Today, Kate’s modeling and acting careers have taken a backseat to being a mom and supportive wife to Justin, whose MLB career is flourishing. However, that doesn’t mean she isn’t making money. It’s estimated that she makes at least $5 million a year, mainly off social media. While we don’t know her exact net worth, some estimate it to be around $28 million.
Sloane Stephens and Jozy Altidore
We love when a famous WAG is an accomplished athlete herself. Sloane Stephens is a perfect example. The professional tennis player is with soccer player Jozy Altidore, and the couple is a perfect match. They’re both incredibly accomplished in their respective fields, but Sloane has a leg up when it comes to earnings.
Sloane is worth about $22 million, which comes from her tennis winnings, competitions, and various brand endorsements. She’s still professionally playing tennis, so she has a high potential of earning even more. Her partner Jozy is currently worth $8-10 million, with the potential to earn more in his future career as well. We’re excited to see where their careers take them.
Elisha Cuthbert and Dion Phaneuf
While Dion Phaneuf played professional hockey for over a decade, Elisha Cuthbert has been working since she was a little kid. By the time the two met in 2008, Elisha was already making bank from her acting career. Today, she’s worth a reported $20 million, while her husband’s net worth is around $1 million. We don’t think Dion minds, though.
The two have been married since 2013 and have two kids. Considering that the couple has been married for more than a few years, it’s safe to assume they have an understanding of their finances. Elisha continues to act here and there, and Dion has accepted a few sports-adjacent endorsements over the years. All in all, Elisha is a well-established WAG who likes to stay under the radar.
Mallory Edens and Aaron Rodgers
We all know that Aaron Rodgers is one of the NFL’s highest-paid quarterbacks. Alongside his wildly successful football career, Aaron has high-profile endorsement deals and a lucrative stake in the Milwaukee Bucks. Needless to say, Aaron is rolling in the dough. But, he may have met his financial match in Mallory Edens, his current rumored partner.
Mallory Edens is the daughter of Wes Edens, a billionaire businessman who is the primary owner of the Bucks. Yes, the same Bucks that Aaron has a stake in– coincidence? Regardless, Mallory Edens is a WAG to watch because she’s presumably set to inherit quite a bit of money on top of the income she earns as a model. Her dad’s worth over $3 billion. If their relationship remains strong, Mallory and Aaron could be a new power couple.
Perrie Edwards and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
Perrie Edwards and soccer player Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain started dating back in 2017 and now share a son and a very full life together. The two had well-established careers when they met each other, making Perrie an uber-successful WAG. Perrie is a member of the British pop group Little Mix and was already a millionaire when she started dating Alex.
Although we don’t know the couple’s exact earnings, sources say that Perrie is worth a staggering $50 million. She also earns about $4 million annually through her Little Mix career and other endorsements. Alex isn’t doing too bad himself. He is worth around $16 million and isn’t set to retire from soccer anytime soon, so he’s only set to earn more as the years go on.
