Tis the season to get excited about sports as we salute some of the hottest wives and girlfriends of 2016 and feature those grabbing the most attention on and off the field. You know you’ve made it into the popular stream of consciousness when the world sits up and takes notice. There’s a reason they got your favourite sports stars attention in the first place and we’re about to reveal it all from the nude pics to the secret hook ups to the infamous scandals surrounding the Top 15 Hottest WAGS of 2016.
These days WAGS stand for a lot more than just the wives and girlfriends behind high profile athletes as they do more than just shop and selfie. Some of them are internationally renowned musos, successful swimsuit models and national TV presenters. They are proudly becoming their partner’s best accessory and are here to stay.
Then again there are a few topless models, lingerie models and swimsuit models to make it onto the list but before we reveal too much we’ll let them do all the revealing.
We present to you the Top 15 Hottest WAGS of 2016…
P.S. We may have got a little too distracted in the process to rank them in order so don’t take the numbers as a hotness meter…
15 Vanessa Bryant - Married To Kobe
Latina beauty Vanessa Bryant is the better half to none other than NBA’s Kobe Bryant. She is one of the sexiest models in the world and he is one of the most successful NBA stars in the world. We can’t help but think this is a match made in WAG heaven.
The couple met when they were just 19 and 22 years old, respectively, and are no strangers to the constant eyes of the media. Vanessa was still attending school at the time and was on set as an extra during a music video shoot when Kobe just happened to be in the building. Their eyes locked, sparks flew and the rest as they say is history.
14 Gisele Bundchen - Married To Tom Brady
Fashion model, actress, and producer Gisele Bundchen is next to make it onto our Top 15 Hottest WAGS list and it’s no surprise as the Brazilian bombshell is a knockout. She married New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady back in 2009 and recently celebrated their 5-year anniversary.
Blessed with possibly the most famous face in the business, Gisele has graced the covers of more magazines than any other model in history. When she’s not fighting off carbs or walking the runway as a Victoria's Secret Angel she sells her own line of shoes.
13 Barbie Blank - Engaged To Sheldon Souray
Barbie Blank is perhaps best known to the world as her WWE persona Kelly Kelly. Never the one to be afraid of showing off her assets, she gained instant popularity with her sexy Kelly’s Expose striptease segment. She even went so far as to appear topless by removing her bra in the premiere appearance. The former WWE Diva made her wrestling debut at just 19 years old and became known as the youngest member of the WWE full-time roster. Barbie is currently heating up local screens thanks to E!’s new reality show WAGS where you have a chance to get to know the real Barbie.

American actress, swimsuit model and TV personality Olivia Munn is next to make it on to the Top 15 Hottest WAGS list for 2016. No surprise there as she has got it going on. She's sexy, likes gaming and comics and has one hell of a sense of humour. Hello full package! Did we mention she can also beatbox and speak Japanese?
She plays the better half to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and has been named in Maxim's "Hot 100 Women" six years in a row. She will no doubt become one of the favourite WAGS of the season.
11 Gabrielle Union - Married To Dwyane Wade
Sexy and talented we couldn’t help but include American actress and activist Gabrielle Union in our ranking. She first made the world take notice back in the 90’s with her appearance in hit teen comedy films She's All That and 10 Things I Hate About You. Her break through role was in Bring It On and has since been a regular to grace our TV screens. She cemented her WAG status when she walked down the aisle to wed NBA Miami Heat player Dwyane Wade back in 2014 and became stepmom to his two sons.
10 Amelia Vega - Married To Al Horford
So much can be said about Dominican hottie Amelia Vega. It’s no surprise she is a slam dunk as a WAG. Not only is she an actress, singer, model and charity worker but she became the first Dominican woman to be named Miss Universe. She was only 18 years old when she won the crown. Amelia also appeared as a singer alongside her famous uncle Juan Luis Guerra at the Madison Square Garden and the American Airlines Arena. The beauty queen now adds the title of wife to her resume as she plays better half to Atlanta Hawks NBA player Al Horford.
9 La La Anthony - Married To Carmelo Anthony
Radio and TV personality La La Anthony owes her WAG status to her basketball playing husband Carmelo Anthony. The wedding ceremony was filmed by VH1 and aired in an exclusive reality series featuring the couple, titled La La's Full Court Wedding. Perhaps best known as being an MTV VJ on Total Request Live, La La is no stranger to the spotlight. Over the past 10 years, La La has developed her own cosmetic line and has made over 25 appearances in sitcoms, feature films and reality TV appearances earning her a net worth of over $9 million. The first lady of the NBA means business…
8 Candice Crawford Romo - Married To Tony Romo
Former beauty queen and TV reporter Candice Crawford not only grabbed our attention but that of starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys Tony Romo. His love life has always been a popular topic of conversation as his string of sexy exes includes Carrie Underwood and blonde beauty Jessica Simpson. Candice, a former reporter for KDAF, the CW-affiliate in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas and an American beauty queen winner won his attention and soon his hand in marriage. When she’s not gracing the cover of a magazine or becoming an avid golfer she’s mom to their two boys Hawkins and Rivers.
7 Nicole Williams - Dating Larry English
If you’ve never heard of Nicole Williams before, we’re pretty sure you’ll have a hard time forgetting her after seeing her pics today. For those that feel the sexy Canadian model looks a tad familiar, you’d be right. She is the one to blame for famously appearing wearing almost nothing next to Robin Thicke in the saucy shoot for Treats magazine. She is not afraid of showing skin and promises to reveal a whole lot more in the next seasons of WAGS. When the lingerie model is not on set filming you’ll find her shooting ad campaigns for Major Models NYC, Milan as well as the Elite Models Chicago. It’s any wonder how Tampa Bay Buccaneers player Larry English can focus on his career when the petite brunette beauty is waiting for him at home.
6 Lauren Tannehill - Married To Ryan Tannehill
Our list wouldn’t be complete without an All-American beauty and what better way to celebrate than with a southern stunner. She’s wife to Miami Dolphins starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill and loves guns, football, fishing and looking hot. See, we’d know you approve. As well as being a full time WAG, the Atlanta-born model has posed for Maxim and made appearances in HBO’s five-part series “Hard Knocks” which averaged 4.3 million viewers. Lauren Tannehill is fast becoming one of the hottest NFL wives in the history of the sport and looking at her pics it’s easy to see why…
5 Misse Beqiri - Married To Anders Lindegaard
Soccer wag Misse Beqiri is next to make it onto our radar and the sexy Swedish model is here to stay. She is the wife of Red Devils goalie Anders Lindegaard and was born in the city of Malmo. Perhaps she’s best known for upstaging senior WAG Coleen Rooney at Manchester United’s end of season awards evening when she donned the red carpet in a daring suit jacket without a shirt or bra. The focus of the Manchester United's annual Player of the Year Awards might have been on celebrating achievements on the pitch, but the trophies on display caused the focus to go elsewhere. All eyes were on the Swedish supermodel as she stole the show. Check out her Instagram page as the cheeky model has a penchant for saucy snaps. You’re welcome…
4 Shakira - Married To Gerard Pique
So far we’ve had some super-hot WAGS make it into the list and the women involved are often more than just wives and girlfriends, they’re celebrities in their own right. This next WAG however takes it to a whole new ball game as the ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ singer secures her place in the Top 15. When she’s not in studio, recording duets with Rihanna or performing she plays wife to central defender for FC Barcelona Gerard Piqué. She is also a successful model and mother to their two sons. They met on the set of Shakira‘s music video for Waka Waka which was the official song of the 2010 FIFA World Cup and became inseparable ever since.
3 Pilar Rubio - Dating Sergio Ramos
The Spanish television reporter and presenter has been dating Real Madrid and Spain defender Sergio Ramos since 2012 in spite of the age gap that’s close to a decade. She first got people to sit up and take notice when she began covering events for “Sé lo que hicisteis” for the television network La Sexta and has appeared in several men’s magazines. She recently walked away with the title of Sexiest Woman on the Planet by FHM Magazine España. Pilar has more to her than meets the eye and we can’t help but have our eyes on her…
2 Abbey Crouch - Married To Peter Crouch
Abbey Crouch may be married to footballer Peter Crouch but she is far better known for her sexy portfolio as a lingerie and catwalk model. She went on to be the runner-up of Britain's Next Top Model and has graced the pages of Maxim, GQ, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit and FHM. She certainly caught our attention with her naked shoot for Love magazine’s advent calendar in a super sexy editorial and became the envy of many. Since then her TV career has taken off and she’s gone on to appear in the third series of Hell’s Kitchen as well as starring in her own show alongside supermodel Janice Dickinson in Abbey and Janice: Beauty & the Best.
1 Alice Goodwin - Married To Jermaine Lloyd Pennant
Our list wouldn’t be complete without a topless model and Alice Goodwin comes to the rescue as she completes the Top 15 Hottest WAGS of 2016. She may not be the first topless model her husband, English footballer Jermaine Lloyd Pennant, has dated but she may just well be his last. Arsenal and Liverpool fans rarely think of Jermaine Pennant these days but we have a feeling that it’s all about to change. After all Alice is a legendary lad’s mag cover girl and one of Britain’s bounciest exports. We mean biggest. We mean best. Excuse us for being a little distracted as she’s one of the hottest WAGS of the year and will undoubtedly leave a huge legacy behind.
