Football is everywhere, especially in the United States, and it’s more than just a sport – it’s about bringing people together. From the ritualistic lives of the players to the groups of friends and family who get together to celebrate this wonderful, action-packed sport, there is nothing quite like watching the game in your own special way and rooting for your favorite team, thus embarking on the journey with the players. While watching their every move and feeling their every emotion, a connection is established and it is unlike anything else you have ever experienced because, unlike most sports, the gargantuan fan base and superstitions make the game one that you can’t help but be fully invested in.
That being said, all of the players have a life separate from sports, and have gone on more than their fair share of dates. However, due to their fortune, fame and fantastic bodies, it is highly unlikely that they would end up with just your average woman. From models to actresses to even the odd childhood sweetheart, these lovely ladies may come and go but one thing’s for sure, they’re all bombshells. Men just love them and, let’s face it, they love the attention. So, without further ado, here are 15 of the hottest WAGs that have been with the true stars of the sports world – football players.
15. Gisele Bündchen
There is absolutely no denying how beautiful the former supermodel turned television presenter Gisele Bündchen is and how lucky the New England Patriot’s quarterback Tom Brady is to have her in his life. But, things seem to be going downhill for the couple who has been together since late 2006. Gisele has recently opened up about the turmoils that go on behind closed doors and has admitted that everything isn’t fine and dandy at home. While there may be very few details about what is going on, it seems to be a result of the high-stress situations that the couple has undergone in the past year. Then again, a lot can change over the course of time but, chances are, even if these two split she won’t be single for very long.
14. Leila Lopes
Leila Lopes didn’t need her relationship with Osi Umenyiora to make headlines, but it sure did keep her there. The world first heard about this hottie when she was a Miss Universe contestant back in 2011 who ended up winning the competition (which made her the first woman from Angola to ever acquire the crown). Since then, she married Osi Umenyiora and they have built a beautiful life together, and insist that their marriage has done nothing but help their love for one another. On top of that, she recently signed a deal with South African hair care brand Recare which does nothing but add to her wonder.
13. Candice Crawford Romo
Tony Romo has been with a lot of beauties in his life such as Carrie Underwood and Jessica Simpson but they cannot compare to Candice Crawford Romo – the one that he finally chose to spend the rest of his life with. Having met in Dallas where he was playing, their eyes met and the rest, as they say, is history. This high-profile woman may have left the scene for a while in order to focus on the wedding but Candice Crawford’s timeless beauty and intelligence will forever grace the media outlets.
12. Carrie Underwood
While most of America knows Underwood from television’s hit reality-meets-talent show American Idol, there is literally no escaping her presence. She embodies what it means to be America’s Sweetheart and small town girl turned country-pop star is literally the definition of what it means to leave everything behind and go after your dreams. However, she is more than just a beauty who knows how to pack a punch, not afraid to speak her mind in a polite but honest fashion. This cannot be better demonstrated than when she talks about her ex and NFL quarterback Tony Romo, and how their relationship didn’t last because his love for football came above all else. Thankfully, this didn’t keep her down and she has been busy living her own life on her own terms ever since.
11. Katherine Webb
Katherine Webb’s life has undergone a drastic change since she won the crown in Miss Alabama 2012 but nothing has been a bigger accomplishment in her life than nabbing NFL quarterback AJ McCarron and beginning the next chapter of her life. Having just welcomed the newest addition to their family, a baby boy, this new mother never looked better and it’s hard to believe that she was pregnant less than a month ago! Given, she has always been a slim woman whose baby bump never really showed.
10. Samantha Ponder
Samantha Ponder is no stranger to the world of sports, making her living off reporting since she joined the FOX team in 2009. Sure, she may have only stayed there for two years before moving her talents over to ESPN, but her dedication to the sport is definitely one worth recognizing. She met the love of her life and Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder, thanks to the wonders of social media, and they have been inseparable ever since. Whoever said that spending too much time on the computer would be bad for your brain never even fathomed that it may be the best thing that could ever happen to your heart.
9. Gabrielle Union
It may have been a while since Gabrielle Union has been involved with a football player but the simple fact is that time never erases our memories, and those revolving around Chris Howard taught her to not stress the little things in life. This stunning actress and sports star were together from 2001-2006 and she has openly admitted that their union may have ended because of how they rushed into things. When she was in her twenties, her main focus was getting engaged and that’s exactly what happened.
8. Carmella DeCesare
What’s not to love about Carmella DeCesare? This American beauty of Puerto Rican and Italian descent radiates the sheer definition of sexiness from every pore of her being. If her figure wasn’t enough to get your gears going, her perfectly proportioned face and embodiment of the best distinguishing features from both parts of her background makes her someone that every man can’t help but desire. However, chances are that she won’t be on the market any time soon considering that she has been with Jeff Garcia since 2007, bore four of his children and is currently the vice president of the Garcia Pass It On Foundation.
7. Hayden Panettiere
Hayden Panettiere may not be extremely well known, especially these days, but she is still enough of a household name to be recognized for her own work, not her connections. When she has some down time, she loves hanging out with friends and this eventually led to her being introduced to New York Jets wide receiver Scotty McKnight. While their relationship may not have lasted, they still had a great run and dated for just over a year, which is still a long time, especially in the entertainment world.
6. Kelly Hall
There is always talk of cheerleaders and football players dating but the rarity of that actually happening, not to mention getting married, is slim to none. That being said, while she may not have continued on the path to becoming a professional cheerleader her long time boyfriend and recent husband Matthew Stafford is now one of the highest paid professional athletes in the world! Either way, they are absolutely meant for one another and they’re not afraid to show their love to the world at any given moment.
5. Eva Longoria
Eva Longoria is one of the most attractive people in Hollywood and, if anything, her small stature just adds to her appeal. It’s no surprise that New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez would take a liking to her and eventually asked her out. Sadly, the feeling was not so reciprocal and their relationship ended a mere four months after it started. Then again, when you consider that she never seemed that into him to begin with, it shouldn’t be a huge surprise.
4. Ariel Meredith
It seems to be a growing trend that American football players, no matter their position on the team, end up at least dating some sort of model and Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is no different. While it is mere speculation about how long their union has been going on, it’s safe to say that it has been for at least a few years now since they made it quasi-official back in 2014. But, a lot has happened since then and the former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and Nicks have since gotten engaged while expecting their first child together.
3. Kim Kardashian
Let’s get to her dating history. Yes, you can basically fill a huge book with the names and a slight description of everyone that she’s dated but, for the sake of this article, let’s stick with the football players. She and wide receiver Miles Austin were involved back in 2010 but the long distance relationship wasn’t something that they were able to handle. Then, she ended up with Reggie Bush and they were together for three years. Sadly, she felt like she wasn’t making him the centre of her world and that’s what drove them apart. All in all, it’s easy to see why men love Kim K and she just can’t help but love them back.
2. Sasha Lee Dindayal
This former model of a provocative nature may have a history of cheating, but it’s not like the San Diego Chargers player Antonio Gates has a squeaky clean past – so maybe, just maybe, they were meant to be. Then again, with her extreme hourglass figure, wonderful smile, sparking eyes and glorious bone structure, almost anyone would be willing to accept her past and try to build a future together. If anything, at least she’ll bring a smile to your face each morning and who knows what will happen next…
1. Kasey Trione
Kasey Trione is definitely the hottest woman that a football player could ever nab. This bikini model and shot girl has everything that a man could possibly desire. From her long, flowing head of hair to her smile that could light up any room, it’s easy to see why she has a modelling career under her belt. In addition, her great, slightly curvy body is perfect for those bikini shoots, running the fine line between sexy and extremely classy. All in all, she is one of those women who you can’t help but want to at least spend one night with.
