Football is to America like hockey is to Canada. Sunday night football, especially the Super Bowl, is the Holy Day for men around the world. While every little boy’s dream is to become rich, famous, or an athlete, it’s hard work!
Beside every NFL player stands a beautiful woman, it’s almost a requirement when being a professional athlete. These women who snag these sports stars have gained the title of being a WAG, which is the acronym for wives and girlfriends of sports stars. We’ve compiled some of the hottest women linked to NFL players this year, and we’ve created a list of the 10 Hottest NFL wives of 2015. Many of these women have been made famous because of their significant other, but most of these sexy ladies have created their own fame. So, not only are these 10 women beautiful, they are also driven to create their own success. While locking down an NFL player seems almost as tough as winning a Super Bowl, it looks like these men are the ones who have scored big time with their wives!
10 Sasha Lee Dindayal
Some of you might recognize Sasha Lee Dindayal from the new show WAGs on E! A cast member of the show that centers around the lives of women dating or married to sports stars, Dindayal used to be a hip hop video star/model. In 2011, Sasha Lee Dindayal married Antonio Gates, a San Diego Chargers tight end. Quitting modeling to start her own business, she now has a line of football baby clothes called Wittle Ones with her best friend. The couple has two children, with her second child born while filming WAGs. It’s not the first time Sasha is linked to an NFL player, before Gates, she was engaged to Marcellus Wiley. We do know one thing for sure, locking down NFL players is something Sasha Lee Dindayal is definitely good at!
9 Samantha Ponder (neé Steele)
Sometimes mixing work with pleasure is a good thing, especially for Samantha Ponder. Samantha Ponder is famously known for her time working with ESPN, where she was part of the ESPN College GameDay crew and a sideline reporter for college football and basketball. She met Christian Ponder on the job, and the two married in 2012. Christian Ponder is a free agent, recently playing for the Oakland Raiders as a quarterback. The couple welcomed a baby girl in 2014 (which no one knew about) and named their baby after Christian Ponder’s college coach, Bobby Bowden. Who wins in this relationship? We think it’s Christian Ponder for finding himself a hot wife who also knows her stuff about sports.
8 Sarah Hinton-Celek
Sarah Hinton-Celek is the wife of San Francisco 49ers tight end, Garrett Celek. The two were married in 2013 making Celek the second NFL player to be married to a Hooters model. Sarah Hinton attended Michigan State and began working at Hooters. She was a contestant in the 2010 Miss Hooters competition and again in 2012 for the Hooters Dream Girl Aruba competition. Appearing in various Hooters calendars, she was the featured model in the 2011 issue for the Hooters bikini calendar. Although she never won any of her Miss Hooters titles, she did win the love of her NFL husband.
7 Lauren Tannehill (neé Ufer)
Lauren Tannehill is the wife of Dolphins quarterback, Ryan Tannehill. The two met during spring break in Panama City, Florida in 2009, and were later married in 2012. Her true passion is to be able to work as a model. She is famous for being the face of Levinson Jewellers and she was also featured in Da Vinci’s wedding catalogue. Lauren also enjoys shooting at the gun range and famous for when she forgot one of her guns in a rental car. A strong believer in her faith, Lauren believed that you dated someone because you were going to get married, which is what she did with her NFL player husband.
6 Jessie James Decker
Jessie James Decker is married to one of the hottest NFL players of all time, Eric Decker, wide receiver for the New York Jets. Not only famous for her sexy hubby, this hot NFL wife is also famous for her music. Jessie James Decker is an American country pop singer and songwriter, and a reality television personality. Her and her husband appeared on their own reality show on E! titled, Eric & Jessie: Game on, where the two showed off their perfect life together. Completely smitten with each other, the couple has two children who take after their parents in the looks department.
5 Kristin Cavallari
Kristin Cavallari had her own fame growing up. Famous for being a mean girl reality television personality on MTV’s Laguna Beach and The Hills, she is also a fashion designer and actress. Cavallari is married to Jay Cutler, who is a quarterback for the Chicago Bears. Previously being linked to a football player in earlier episodes of Laguna Beach, Cavallari and Cutler married in 2013, although the couple’s relationship did suffer. The two called off their engagement in 2011, but then reconciled and got married two years later. The couple has two children, and they are expecting their third child together.
4 Claudia Sampedro
Claudia Sampedro is the beautiful Hispanic model that is probably all over your Instagram. Often being compared to looking like Kim Kardashian, the 26-year-old model is the girlfriend of Green Bay Packers' Julius Peppers. A woman who calls herself a glamour model, actress, musician and supermodel, she is also a video vixen, appearing in Pitbull’s video for “Don’t Stop the Party.” Sampedro used to be linked to another NFL player, Reggie Bush, who we clearly know has a thing for Kim Kardashian look-a-likes. Sampedro and Peppers welcomed their son Amare, recently to the world, and you can see Sampedro flaunting that smoking after-baby body all over Instagram.
3 October Gonzalez (neé Russell)
October Gonzalez is the wife of former NFL tight end Tony Gonzalez. Tony retired in 2013 and is now an analyst on CBC’s NFL pregame show NFL Today. The two of them met back in 2002, where Gonzalez met October at a bar. He invited her to a party with her then boyfriend, but she declined. A year later, this time single, Gonzalez invited her to another party and it was history ever since. With a bartending and cosmetology license, October also has a long list of musically talented family members, including herself! In 2009, October and Tony did a sexy nude shoot for an ad for PETA, and are really into giving back. The two had a ceremony in 2007 for their commitment, making them not legally married, but just like the couple, we too consider October an NFL wife, and a very sexy one on top of that!
2 Nicole Williams
Although not married, we still consider Nicole Williams one of the hottest NFL wives. Also a cast member on the E! show WAGs, Williams has been dating Larry English of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and is ready to get married! Williams is famous for her modeling career. She’s done campaigns for Bebe Sport, Levi’s, Nike, Avon, La Senza, Caché, Macy’s and Kohls, and has also been featured in commercials for Old Navy, Marshalls, Nissan and Mazda. Juggling her career and her personal life, Nicole struggles with keeping a good balance of both. Although having an independent career life, she finds time away from NFL boyfriend difficult. Maybe it would be easier if he would put a ring on it, which we definitely think he should (what are you waiting for Larry!?).
1 Gisele Bündchen
Number one on our Hottest NFL Wives of 2015 list is Gisele Bündchen, and rightfully so. Brazilian model, actress and all around bombshell, Bündchen is married to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Famously known for being one of the sexiest Victoria's Secret Angels, any man linked up to Gisele is one big winner. Before marrying Tom Brady, Bündchen was dating Leonardo DiCaprio. Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady met in 2006, they were set up on a blind date through a mutual friend, and they got married three years later in 2009. The couple has two children (yup!). They were recently in the media for rumored marital troubles, but dream on people, you can only be so lucky to snag a wife like Gisele. You go Tom Brady!
