Famous Athletes And Their Incredible Wives
The biggest athletes in the world are usually some of the most dedicated, hard working, motivated people in the world.
That’s why, with their astounding skills in their respective fields, they have thousands of fans around the world, and ultimately, very good salaries. However, as many loving fans as they can get, there’s always going to be someone who cares for them even more: their life partner.
Many times is said that a man is only as strong as the woman who supports him, and in most of these cases, this is more than true. Take a look at these famous sportsmen and their beautiful other half.
Lionel Messi & Antonella Roccuzzo
Do you remember your first childhood love? Oh come on, in primary school you must’ve had a sweet spot for that smiley girl, always surrounded by her friends? Well, it may sound like Disney story, but it’s exactly the story of the greatest soccer legend in the world, Lionel Messi, and his childhood friend’s cousin, Antonella Roccuzzo, who have been together since they were 6 or 7 years old. Super adorable and super in love.
Derek Jeter and Hannah Davis
Derek Jeter is a former player of the New York Yankees who, just a few months ago tied the knot with his mid-twenties model wife, Hannah Davis. We wish the best for the two lovers, but still we can’t help but to wonder how much that ring must’ve cost.
Mia Hamm and Nomar Garciaparra
Garciaparra has had a career that took him amongst the ranks of the RedSox and the Dodgers, but the main reason for which he’s known, it’s probably his bombshell wife. USA’s former soccer star Mia Hall, who even brought the USA team to winning a Olympic Gold medal. The two have been married since 2003 and gave birth to a pair of twin girls.
Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie
After being everyone’s favourite child actress with her acting and singing skills, she went on to become an adult woman and marry Canadian Mike Comrie, a retired ice hockey center. Even though they are now divorced, they are still very united over their 4 yeaer son, Luca.
Gerard Piqué and Shakira
EVERYBODY knows Shakira, right? The Colombian popstar bombshell Shakira, considered one of the sexiest women of the world. Well, unless you are a soccer fan, you won’t know her husband, the F.C. Barcelona center-back Gerard Piqué. Many fans of the soccer club don’t really like her, and accuse her of ruining Pique’s form .They live in Barcelona, Catalunya, together with their two sons.
Wladimir Klitschko and Hayden Panettiere
It’s always funny to see pictures of these giant molochs and their little other half. In this case the World Heavyweight Boxe Champion Wladimir Klitschko and his petite girlfriend, actress and singer Hayden Panettiere. They look adorable, and I’m pretty sure that Wladi can rest assured that no one will ever try to steal his girl from him.
Irina Shayk and Cristiano Ronaldo
Another footballer makes it onto the list. It’s no surprise, considering footballers are among the world’s most famous sportsmen. And it just happens that Cristiano Ronaldo is probably the most famous one, together with Messi. So it’s no surprise to find him romantically linked to one of the most gorgeous supermodels in activity, russian bomb Irina Shayk. The couple split in 2015 but they were so glorious that we couldn’t keep them out of this list.
Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen
They’re definitely one of the biggest VIP power-couples in the sports world. Being married and having the three gorgeous kids that they have they are also one of the most beautiful families. Football star Tom Brady and supermodel Gisele Bündchen could’ve not produced anything less, anyway.
Marko Jaric and Adriana Lima
In this couple, the “celeb” is definitely Adriana Lima, being a Victoria’s Secret supermodel, known around the world for your unbelievable looks, while Marko is a serbian former Pro basketball player. After his career they married and had two beautiful kids, but unfortunately, 5 years later, they split.
Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson
Eric used to play as a tight end for the 49ers before retiring and marrying the american TV personality and singer/actress Jessica Simpson. They have two kids and are still together, which seems to be pretty rare in this world.
Sasha Vujacic and Maria Sharapova
Everybody knows who Maria Sharapova is. If you don’t… well… that’s weird. Anyway, she’s one of the most successful tennis players ever (in the female category, obviously) and she’s married to lesser-known Sasha Vujacic, a former NBA player now in activity in the Turkish basketball SuperLig.
Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom
Unfortunately this is a couple that didn’t last, as they split it last year. Lamar Odom is a pretty famous former basketball player, but the real star of the couple was the reality star Khloe Kardashian, who has been conquering America with the lame reality shows about her and her sisters and her family in general.
David and Victoria Beckham
Now this is the ultimate footballer+showgirl power-couple. Posh Spice and Becks. David is an english retired soccer legend who’ll probably go down as one of the best in history and who decided to move to Los Angeles after his retirement, to live with his rising star children and his former Spice Girl wife, who owns several successful business, as does him.
Mike Fisher and Carrie Underwood
It sounds traditional but the love story between country singer Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher, captain of the Nashville Predators (NHL) started in a very cute way. Things started in the backstage at one of Carrie’s concerts and one year later they married and in 2015 came their first child.
Angie Harmon and Jason Sehorn
The celebrity in this couple is Angie Harmon, a well known actress and director, while Jason was “only” a football cornerback. They have three beautiful daughters in the family, but they decided to get a divorce after 16 years.
Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union
Everybody knows Dwayne Wade as the Miami Heat Legend that he is, and everybody also knows his wife, Gabrielle Union, a very good actress on her rise to fame and yeah, i’m sorry to be using the same term all the time, but this makes them a power-couple as well. After being together for a few years they split up for about a year before getting back together and actually tying the knot.
Ryan and Lauren Ashley Tannehill
This lucky couple met each while attending the Texas A&M college and got married as an act of trust, right during Ryan’s wait for the NFL draft. A couple of months later they checked in their bet as he was drafted by the Miami Dolphins. At the moment they’re waiting for their first child, as announced on Instagram. Will he buy her some flowers or stick to diamond rings?
Brandon and Amanda McCarthy
Things can’t get much better if you’re a pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers with a career similar to Brandon McCarthy’s who got to marry the woman he loved. Bonus points because she’s a stunning and successful model. They also just welcomed their first baby girl.
Eliza Dushku and Rick Fox
Everyone’s second favourite vampire slayer, Faith from “Buffy”, has been married to Rick Fox, a Lakers man for many years (have you noticed how Hollywood personalities deeply influences the sport VIPs who live and work in the area?). sadly, though, Eliza and Rick just got divorced.
Scottie Upshall and Melanie Collins
These two look so elegant. One is part of the NHL “Royals”, because of his past in the competition. Being Canadian, it was probably in his blood. Melanie, on the other side, is “royalty” too, being a princess of TV show hosting. Much luck for the pair, they look so cute.
Nicole Scherzinger and Lewis Hamilton
Nicole used to be the face and main voice of the ‘Pussycat Dolls‘, a girl band that had a few hits before the mass attention was driven away by the next girl band, but still… they were very big at the time, and time has certainly done good for Nicole , who looks stunning. Now they’re separated, but she had a long lasting love story with Lewis Hamilton, one of motor sport’s biggest attractions, as the undisputed Champion in Formula 1.
Iker Casillas and Sara Carbonero
Another Real Madrid soccer player, and not just anyone. He’s one of the best goalies in the history of the sport and managed to get together with one of the most celebrated sport reporters in the Spanish medias, Sara Carbonero. They’ve been together for a while right now, and everyone remembers the interview that Sara had to give his boyfriend on live television after Spain won the World Cup.
Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari
Cutler plays as quarterback in the Chicago Bears, while the beautiful Kristin was everybody’s crush on the show The Hills. These two tied the knot in 2013 and since then have already given birth to three beautiful children.
Wes Welker and Anna Burns
Plays as a wide receiver for the Denver Broncos, and Burns, who is a giant fan of the team, managed to get into a private party of theirs. The love was immediate and the marriage came shortly after. A bit deep in the stigma, but who could resist a woman coming straight out of the Hooters Calendar?
Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker
Famous for reaching and holding the ATP charts as the Nº1 tennis player in the world, Andy Roddick is certainly a man who’s known how to achieve his dream career. And apparently his dream life too. After getting married to Brooklyn Decker, front cover in 2009 for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, they created a life together in 2015.
