Meet Their Better Half: The Wives And Girlfriends Of Super Bowl LV Stars!

Football | 2/3/21

Behind every Super Bowl superstar is a super woman. Through the highest highs and the lowest lows, these incredible women stand by their partners. From Giselle’s undying devotion to Tom Brady to Patrick Mahomes’ perfect romance with Brittany Matthews, these athletes got lucky on and off the field. With Super Bowl LV pitting the Kansas City Chiefs against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, it’s only appropriate we take a look at the wives and girlfriends of the biggest game’s biggest stars!

Camille Kostek Took Rob Gronkowski Off The Market

During his time with the New England Patriots, tight end Rob Gronkowski was one of the NFL’s most eligible bachelors. Then he met cheerleader and swimsuit model Camille Kostek in 2015 and everything changed.

For the first year of the relationship, the couple kept their love private. They finally went public in 2016. Kostek hasn’t relied on Gronk to grow her career, though. In 2019 she made the cover of Sports Illustrated’s coveted “Swimsuit Issue.” In 2021 she was named the host of the reboot of Wipeout on TBS.

Kayla Nicole Didn’t Need A Reality TV Show To Win Travis Kelce’s Love

Before he met Kayla Nicole, Travis Kelce was so inclined to find his soulmate that he signed up to star in his own reality dating show. While that didn’t work out for him, it wouldn’t be long after the show ended that he would meet Kayla Nicole, his perfect match.

Nicole works professionally as an on-camera host for a variety of networks. But it hasn’t always been perfect between the couple. They separated for a few months in 2020 before getting back together in December, just in time for the holidays.

Giselle Walked The Runway Straight Into Tom Brady’s Heart

Tom Brady has it all. Ten Super Bowl appearances, more than a handful of championship rings, and a supermodel wife. Could life be any better for the future first-ballot Hall of Famer?

The answer is obviously, “no.” Giselle isn’t just a supermodel, she’s one of the most successful ever and earned an estimated $125,000 a day! That’s twice as much as Brady makes, a fact that doesn’t get in the way of the amazing love this perfect couple shares!

Tyrann Mathew spared no expense when it came to selecting an engagement ring for his partner. When the Chiefs star defensive back decided he wanted to ask Sydni Paige to be his wife, he bought her a $250,000 6-carat ring!

After signing a $42 million deal with Kansas City in 2019, Mathieu could afford to spoil the love of his life. Interestingly, Mathieu will be facing off against the head coach who originally drafted him when he takes the field in the Super Bowl against the Bruce Arians helmed Buccaneers.

Mike And Ashli Evans Are Fully Dedicated To Each Other

For the most part, Mike Evans and his wife Ashli Evans keep their private life exactly that, private. The couple got married in 2015, have two daughters together, and are clearly very dedicated to each other.

College sweethearts, Ashli has stuck by her husband throughout his career, which hasn’t always been easy. Until this past season, Mike found himself on perennial losers. His love for the Bucs never wavered though, and now his loyalty has been rewarded with a trip to the Super Bowl.

Brittany Matthews And Patrick Mahomes Are High School Sweethearts

Brittany Matthews and Patrick Mahomes’ romance dates all the way back to high school. Mahomes was a two-sport star while Matthews excelled at soccer, even earning a scholarship to the University of Texas at Taylor to continue playing.

Matthews finished college with a degree in kinesiology and now works as a personal trainer. Mahomes is a Super Bowl-winning quarterback and NFL MVP award winner. In September 2020, the couple officially became engaged in a move that surprised absolutely no one.

Ndamukong Suh is one of the most feared defensive linemen in the NFL. Known for his aggressive and sometimes dirty style of play, his on-field image has often come into conflict with his reported off-field persona of being a giant teddy bear.

If you asked Katya Leick, she would confirm that when the shoulder pads come off, Suh becomes a big old softy. The two were vacationing together in France when Suh asked Leick to marry him. Of course, she said yes!

Davontay Moore And Demarcus Robinson Met In College

A fourth-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Demarcus Robinson has proved to be a huge steal for the Kansas City Chiefs. As a member of the “Legion of Zoom,” Robinson has become a key member of the Chiefs’ young dynasty, and he wouldn’t have been able to do it without his wife, Davontay Moore.

The couple met in college at the University of Florida. Moore graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Sports Management and Event Management.

Sheawna Weathersby Refused To Be Outshined By Chris Jones

Heading into the 2019 NFL season, Chris Jones was not a household name. After winning the Super Bowl and signing an eight-figure contract extension, though, there aren’t many fans left asking who he is.

No slouch herself, Sheawna Weathersby not only dedicates her love to Jones and the children they share but also her growing social media following. This is one NFL power couple that fans should be excited to continue to watch grow together for years to come.

Tala Watkins Has Moved Everywhere With Sammy Watkins

A former first-round draft pick, Sammy Watkins moved around a lot in his NFL career before finding a stable home in Kansas City. As a role player on the team, he has found a niche as a big-play threat and touchdown vulture.

Tala Watkins is his wife, and she’s stayed with him through every move. The couple has been together since 2014 when Sammy was drafted by the Buffalo Bills. They have two kids together.

Mariah DelPercio And Chris Godwin Are Engaged

A couple since first falling in love in high school, Chris Godwin and Mariah DelPercio are engaged to be married, but that ceremony will have to be put on hold while Godwin tries to win his first Super Bowl.

When Tom Brady came to Tampa Bay, Godwin was kind enough to give up his jersey number so the legend could continue to wear number 12. Maybe his new number, 14, is lucky because 2020 was a blessed year for the talented wide receiver.

Vita Vea Proposed To Alexus Atchley While He Was Injured

Vita Vea missed a chunk of the 2020 NFL season but didn’t let that stop him from living his best life. While he was recovering from his injury, he proposed to longtime girlfriend Alexus Atchley.

Atchley met Vea in college, where she was also an athletic star. She played on the university’s basketball team, and while Atchley didn’t go pro, she now works at the University of Arizona as a graduate assistant for the woman’s team.

Jason Pierre-Paul’s NFL career has seen its share of ups and downs. Breaking out as a superstar with the New York Giants, he then had to rebuild his reputation after an off-field fireworks accident. After eight seasons in blue and white, Pierre-Paul signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2018.

Today, he plays for Tampa Bay and lives happily with his partner Farraw Germain. They met in college and they have two beautiful children together.

Anthony And Jessica Sherman Are Completely Devoted To Each Other

As the fullback for the Kansas City Chiefs, Anthony Sherman is a player who does a lot of dirty work on the offensive side of the ball without getting a lot of the credit. Having spent most of his career in KC, it’s safe to say not having name recognition isn’t a big deal for him.

Jessica Sherman is Anthony’s other half, and the two are completely devoted to each other and their three children. For Halloween, they even dressed up as Power Rangers together in a costume ensemble we would love to see!

Brooke Lynn Was A Mitchell Schwartz Fan First

The romance between Mitchell Schwartz and Brooke Lynn didn’t start in college or high school. It started in the stands. Lynn was a Chiefs fan and happened to be sitting in the stands next to Schwartz’s best friend during one fateful game.

The friend introduced the two, thinking they would be a good match. It’s hard to deny that friend was right considering the couple is now happily married and hoping to win their second Super Bowl ring!

Jordanna Barrett Is Shaq Barrett’s Perfect Foil

Shaq Barrett and his wife Jordanna Barrett have been together since meeting at Colorado State. It was Shaq’s second school after he transferred when the University of Nebraska-Omaha cut their football program. After three years playing at Colorado State, Shaq went into the NFL undrafted.

Since falling in love in college, the couple has gotten married and started a family. They currently have three children together. Jordanna also founded the Fifty50 Foundation which helps children in the foster care system.

Falling in love in high school, Isabelle and Harrison Butker have one of the most devoted relationships of couples listed so far. The couple is devoutly religious, which they believe is one of the keys to the success of their marriage.

Harrison has spent four years in the NFL and is already considered one of the best kickers in the league. He has a career 90.08 field goal percentage, which ranks him second all-time in league history.

Florence Dube-Moreau And Laurent Duvernay-Tardif Have Found A Higher Calling Together

Perhaps the most unique couple we’ve listed, Florence Dube-Moreau and Laurent Duvernay-Tardif won’t actually enjoy the spoils the Super Bowl brings. The offensive lineman opted out of the 2020 NFL season to go back home to Canada and provide medical assistance during the pandemic.

While he’s a talented athlete, Duvernay-Tardif is also a licensed doctor, so missing one season in the NFL for the greater good probably wasn’t a difficult decision for him.

Tammy Reid Has Been With Andy Reid So Long She Talks Like A Head Coach

Tammy Reid and Andy Reid have been together for a long time. As the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs, Andy would be nowhere without his other half. And in the same regard, Tammy would be nowhere without her husband.

The two are so in sync with each other that at times Tammy sounds like a head coach herself, especially when talking about their family dynamic, “My job as a mom is to read the coverage, I call it. I call Andrew and say, you need to be at this function.”

Christine And Bruce Arians Are Proof That True Love Exists

Bruce Arians might not be a player, but the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is still one of the stars of Super Bowl LV. And he and his wife, Christine Arians, are proof that true love exists.

The couple first met when they were both 14-years-old in high school. They then went to college together and have been completely inseparable ever since. Christine is currently the head of the Arians Family Foundation.
