We like to think we know everything there is to know about our football heroes – where they grew up, where they went to college, and what their greatest achievements have been. How much do you know about your favorite athletes’ love lives? Do NFL players swap spouses as often as they change socks, according to popular belief? Some NFL players are in long-term relationships, while others are married to their profession and don’t appear ready for domesticity. Fans were stunned by the extraordinary women who support the league’s most famous athletes.
Joe Montana and Jennifer Wallace
Joe Montana and Jennifer Wallace’s relationship may make for a fantastic romantic comedy: he was an up-and-coming star quarterback, she was an actress and model, and the two met on the set of a commercial in the early 1980s. After winning his first Super Bowl in 1982, legendary quarterback, Joe Montana wished to try something new. Luck had it that American actress Jennifer Wallace was his co-star in a Schick razor commercial, where she played the sheriff of a fictitious Western hamlet.
Even though she had no idea who her co-star was, she found him charming, even though he was bashful. Joe finally gathered the nerve to ask out his beautiful yet somewhat intimidating co-star as filming on the commercial came to a close. Joe didn’t hesitate to ask Montana to marry him six months after they started dating. Montana was Montana’s third marriage, and it was his third time lucky since the two have been together ever since; this year, they will commemorate their 35th wedding anniversary. They have two daughters and two sons, both of whom are football players.
