To be married to a famous athlete is one thing, but to be equally famous as your half is a whole, different story. Athletes may have created a name for themselves through natural talent, hard work, and commitment, but what happens when the athletes mingle with celebrities of the same level of fame. The result is a dynamic duo, constantly bombarded with flocks of media and attention. Here are some notable pairs.
David Beckham & Victoria Adams. This international famous couple have been married for years – a significant feat rarely accomplished in their respective worlds. After almost two decades of marital bliss, having four children together, dodging tabloid rumors, and dealing with flocks of paparazzi, the twosome remain intact together and also continue to succeed in their respective careers.
Tom Brady & Gisele Bunchen. The QB always get the girl, and this couple is a true example of that common testament. The pair secretly dated and married in 2009, and have been going stronger since then. Together, they have two children and have been mainly living low-key in Brady’s city of Boston. Not going to lie, they make quite the beautiful couple.
Justin Verlander & Kate Upton. He’s the premier baseball pro. She’s the ‘It’ girl and model, of the moment. And together, they make a head-turning couple. Dating since 2012, the relatively new couple have kept it surprisingly quiet, in terms of flaunting their status as a couple. A humble duo tends to stay together in the long haul, and it wouldn’t be surprising if this couple does that.
Gerard Pique & Shakira. Despite their ten year age difference (she’s 36, he’s 26), the soccer star and Latina songstress has showed time and time that age is nothing but a number. Dating for just a little over a year, Shakira recently gave birth to the couple’s first child and plan on getting married later this year. “Felicitaciones” are in order.
Mike Fisher & Carrie Underwood. The country star married her hockey hubby back in 2010 and have been going strong year by year. During an interview last year, she even shared that her husband is the epitome of a true gentleman, holding her purse when necessary. Lads, a gentleman always keeps a woman’s heart. Take notes.
Andy Roddick & Brooklyn Decker. After Mandy Moore, retired tennis player Andy asked his agent to track down Brooklyn’s phone number, and the rest was history. The two married in a quiet ceremony in Austin in 2009. Both have been supportive of each other’s careers, appearing on the sidelines. Her at Andy’s tennis matches and him at her runway shows. Support is a vital ingredient in a successful marriage and these two lovebirds exemplify
that quality in a relationship.
Lamar Odom & Khloe Kardashian. Less than a month of dating, these two tied the knot, and many people bet it wouldn’t last. But both proved everyone wrong. Married for more than two years, she has shown support of his basketball career and he has dealt with the madness and drama that comes with the Kardashian name.
