It seems as though every sportsman has a hot wife or girlfriend. Why is this? Are women attracted to them because of the big bank balance or fast car? Or are they attracted to their energy and fit bodies? Then again, maybe it’s the prospect of travelling around the world. Either way, it’s a commonly held belief that sportsmen have plenty of women to choose from when they are looking for their WAG.
It also seems that most of them are in a relationship for the right reason, not just the superficial stuff. But with all the training they have to endure, it must be hard to keep down a relationship of any sort. The WAGS themselves must have to be extra tolerant of a sportsman’s moods and ride the peaks and troughs of their husband’s public life.
Sometimes, though, whatever a WAG is giving is not good enough and cases of sportsmen breaking up with their girlfriends or cheating on their wives is often celebrated in the media. What this does show is that sportsmen are just like everyone else — they are prone to temptation, anger, obsession, and when they screw up, even their money and status won’t save them.
So, with that in mind, here are 15 pictures of WAGS the ladies don’t want their BFs to see, because believe it or not, sportsmen are also notoriously prone to jealousy.
15 Tami Roman — WAG of Reggie Youngblood
After her relationship with Kenny Anderson ended, Tami Roman dated former football player, Reggie Youngblood, and many are still curious to know exactly who he is and where he came from, especially since he seems so different from Kenny. One thing’s for sure, though, Reggie is not going to want to see pictures of her like this on the Internet. And with a name like Youngblood, we think he’s going to be the hot-blooded jealous type.
Tami’s relationship with Kenny was, according to reports, the stuff of nightmares, and she’s pleased to have gotten rid of the guy. She’s even got her own career now as an American television personality, model, and actress. But Tami couldn’t stop herself from becoming involved with yet another sportsman, could she? You think she would have learned her lesson, or perhaps it wasn’t so bad after all.
14 Erin Heatherton — (Former) WAG of Jordan Cameron
Erin Heatherton only recently split from her previous lover Jordan Cameron, but despite this, she seems to be enjoying life to the fullest. With it being so recent, the last thing she’d want to do is have Jordan sniffing around again, so she’s probably hoping he doesn’t see these pictures. The American fashion model and actress is best known for her work with Victoria's Secret, but she’s done a ton of other stuff and now works with the likes of Prada, Stella McCartney, Chanel, and Tommy Hilfiger.
She's also appeared on the covers of GQ and enjoys the attention she gets from the readers. That was something Jordan could never get on board with (being the jealous type) and it’s perhaps no surprise that they split up in the end. That kind of competition is too much, even for the likes of Jordan.
13 Irina Shayk — (Former) WAG of Cristiano Ronaldo
Although she is Cristiano Ronaldo’s ex, we think the soccer player won’t be pleased to see what he’s been missing out on. Irina is a Russian model who has appeared in countless magazines, including the Sports Illustrated, and becoming the first Russian model to grace its cover in 2011. Ronaldo was a fool to lose this one and he probably knows it.
Irina Shayk is now dating actor Bradley Cooper (one of the world's highest-paid actors for three years) and the two share a daughter, Lea de Seine Shayk Cooper, who was born in 2017. Irina and Ronaldo dated for many years during his professional soccer career, but the relationship came to an abrupt end when Irina called off her ties with Ronaldo with talk of infidelity and irreconcilable differences.
12 Ashley Nicole Roberts — WAG of Philip Wheeler
This reality-television star is not going to want her husband Philip Wheeler to catch a glimpse of these pictures of her. In fact, she will probably try to do anything she can to stop him browsing her name on the Internet. But what with her work for various modelling agencies and reality-TV shows like WAGS Miami, chances are, there will be always be photos of her on the Internet.
She married boyfriend and Atlanta Falcons’ line-backer Philip Wheeler on March 14, 2017 and they enjoyed a wedding at Curaçao Island. They had previously been in a relationship together for seven years and felt it was about time to settle down. They have a child called Deuce, and although there have been rumours about a divorce, Ashley Nicole Roberts is adamant that all is well between the two.
11 Gisele Bündchen — WAG of Tom Brady
This Brazilian beauty used to be one of the highest-paid models in the world, and in 2007, was the richest female television personality. But she knows husband Tom Brady still wouldn’t be happy to see pictures like this on the Internet. Despite being the 89th Most Powerful Woman in the World, as listed by Forbes, she’ll still be worried about what Tom will say when he gets home from work.
Gisele Bündchen was a member of a line of Brazilian models who began to achieve modelling fame in other parts of the world in 1990. Known by some as the only remaining supermodel, it was only natural that Bündchen would get lapped up by one of the greatest stars of the NFL: one of only two players to win five Super Bowls.
10 Nicole Scherzinger — On/Off WAG of Lewis Hamilton
We know Nicole Scherzinger wouldn’t want her on-again, off-again beau, Lewis Hamilton, to see these pictures. It would only tempt him to come back to her yet again (as he did so many other times), and in any case, she looks perfectly content now with tennis star Grigor Dimitrov. Dimitrov is apparently the most successful Bulgarian male tennis player ever in the history of Bulgarian tennis.
Nicole apparently stopped seeing Hamilton because of his obsession with Formula One. Surprised? But since he’s now the greatest living Brit champion of the sport, it was probably obvious from the start that she would have her work cut out. Let’s hope Dimitrov is more chilled when it comes to free time and he leaves some room in their hectic lives for fun and games. Nicole was also engaged to Nick Hexum, lead singer of 311, but that relationship didn’t last long.
9 Kate Upton — WAG of Justin Verlander
Born in 1992, Kate Upton’s work as a model began with her appearances in the Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue. After a celebrated first spread, she appeared again on the cover of the magazine in 2012, 2013, and 2017 and has amassed a male following that her husband Justin Verlander is insanely jealous of. For this reason, Kate wanted to try to keep these latest pictures to herself. But how is that possible these days, especially when even nude photos get leaked so easily? Kate and Justin were engaged in 2016 and were married in 2017 in a medieval church in Tuscany, Italy.
8 Ciara — WAG of Russell Wilson
Married to Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks' quarterback, we know Ciara is going to try everything she can to stop pictures of her turning up on the Internet. Fortunately for us, she won’t succeed because not only does she model regularly, but she is also a singer, songwriter, record producer, and actress. And with those kinds of public appearances, it’s hard to keep yourself private. Perhaps she can sweet talk him when he gets home tonight.
Ciara and Russell were married at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England in 2016 and they have one child. But Ciara also has a son from a previous relationship with American rapper, singer, songwriter, Future. Future is still a part of Ciara’s life which apparently causes a little bit of friction during family gatherings. But there’s no doubt about it, Ciara and Russell seem happy.
7 Anna Benson — WAG of Kris Benson
Being a former stripper, Anna Benson is used to showing off her body. And while that was fine when she was single, now that she’s married to former Major League Baseball pitcher Kris Benson, she may want to consider slowing down. This sort of picture is going to cause him a big chunk of jealousy, especially with it being such a hot pic.
She met Kris while she was working at a strip club and they began dating straight away. They were married in 1999 and Anna stopped the stripper act so that she could concentrate on being his devoted wife. That hasn’t stopped her from impromptu photo shoots, though, and it means that she is yet again diverting the fame away from her husband like she did when they first got together.
6 Evelyn Lozada — WAG of Carl Crawford
Eveyn Lozada was one of the five main cast members in the VH1 reality series Basketball Wives and has made the most of her fame. But she still wouldn’t want ex-boyfriend Chad Johnson to see her new pictures, especially not after dating Carl Crawford in 2013. She knows Chad will be insanely jealous that Carl is enjoying what he used to have but at the same time, with his string offences relating to battery, she must be worried that he’d come knocking once more.
Lozada was also engaged to NBA player Antoine Walker during their 10-year relationship, before being proposed to by Chad Johnson. Lozada and Crawford announced their engagement in 2013, and she gave birth to their child the following year. More recently, the couple called off the engagement but no one knows why.
5 Kristin Cavallari -- WAG of Jay Cutler
Kristin Elizabeth Cutler, better known as Kristin Cavallari, was part of Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County which documented the lives of her and her friends. So, she’s no stranger to fame or fortune, and as a successful actress in her own right, she is always being snapped by eagle-eyed paparazzi. Here’s one such picture of Kristin that we think her husband Jay Cutler (NFL quarterback for the Miami Dolphins) would not want to see on the Internet.
Cavallari and Cutler got married in Nashville, Tennessee in 2013 after years of being in an on-again, off-again relationship. No one quite knows why, but everything seems okay now. They're also parents to two children.
4 Miko Grimes — WAG of Brent Grimes
Married to NFL player Brent Grimes, Miko Grimes likes to make an entrance and a name for herself. We think she’s done just that with this picture, but how would it make her husband feel? And does she even care? She’s made some pretty controversial comments over the years, so maybe not.
Miko may not care about rules and etiquette, but she probably won’t want her husband seeing pictures like this flying around the Internet.
She was once arrested when she tried to walk through a restricted area at an NFL match. She was removed by police and charged with a number of offences, but the only offence we can see her committing here is a breach of the peace. There’s no stopping Miko when she wants to do something, but she has to be careful not to step too far out of line.
3 Edurne -- WAG of David De Gea
Born in Madrid in 1985, we think Edurne has got the true romantic spirit of the Spanish. She is the girlfriend of David de Gea, a professional soccer player who plays as a goalkeeper for Manchester United and Spain's national team. He's been hailed as one of the best goalkeepers in the world. The couple appear to be getting along very well, but will all that change when de Gea sees these pictures?
Edurne sang for Spain in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2015 and finished in a respectable 21st place, but her true calling is as an actor and musician. In late 2005, Edurne was selected by the show's jury for the fourth series of Operación Triunfo. She has since gone on to be a TV presenter and is widely known in Spain.
2 Melissa Satta -- WAG of Kevin-Prince Boeteng
Italian TV presenter Melissa Satta has never been one to hide her light. Born in 1986 in Boston, she was a showgirl in Italy and appeared in Maxim and the 2010 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. She lives and works in Italy and has dated her fair share of footballers and high-profile businessmen including Christian Vieri, Gianluca Vacchi, and Kobe Bryant. However, each time she got with someone, she ended up cheating on them, so she also has a string of failed relationships.
She seems happy enough with her current beau Kevin-Prince Boeteng, though, with whom she has a child with and married in 2016. Who knows, it may only be a matter of time before Satta cheats once again. We think she would rather Boeteng didn’t see this particular picture.
1 Abby Manning — WAG of Eli Manning
Eli Manning (who won the Maxwell Award in 2003 as the nation’s best player) met his future wife, Abby Mcgrew, at Ole Miss when Eli was a junior and Abby was a freshman. The Brentwood Academy graduate makes time to see and be seen, and the results are some incredible shots of her beauty.
The pair was married in 2008 and have three daughters. Eli decided he he wanted Abby as his wife in 2007. During a trip home to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, he had an engagement ring made specifically for her. Although he had planned to ask her to marry him several weeks later, he couldn’t wait and popped the question within a matter of days.
