Athletes Wives and Girlfriends

Athletes Wives and Girlfriends
Athletes Wives and Girlfriends, It's true! Romance exists in sports ... Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly ... are they officially "on" again? Since we can't declare it a rekindled romance yet, here's a list of athletes who are definitely "all in" with their sweethearts.

Andy Roddick Tennis ace Andy Roddick's bride may have leapfrogged her husband as the more recognizable member of the couple. She graced the cover of the 2010 Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition and starred in the 2011 movie "Just Go With It" with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston. Roddick had a cameo in the film.
Mike Fisher The Nashville Predators' Mike Fisher found a winner in his country singer and "American Idol" champ wife.
Dwayne Wade The Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade has been dating this former model and actress for years, apparently even while he was still married, according to his ex-wife. After that mess, D-Wade's image could use some repair; just don't hire LeBron James' guys to do it.
Grant Hill Grant Hill may not have a championship ring, but apparently he takes his wedding band very seriously. He's been married to an R&B singer since 1999, and Shaq's ex-wife says he's the only player in the NBA who's faithful.
Lamar Odom The Lakers' Lamar Odom became part of a powerhouse reality-TV franchise when he married the youngest of a famous sister trio in 2010.
Sasha Vujacic Sasha Vujacic became enamored with his tennis star girlfriend while winning championships with the Lakers. Now that he's been traded to New Jersey, will he have to downgrade? Maybe not; the two have since become engaged. The Nets may not be winning many games, but they're building an impressive roster of WAGs.

Shannon Brown Lakers highflier Shannon Brown married this R&B star in 2010. Brown played the love interest in one of her videos, and she has performed the national anthem before Lakers games. Cute, huh?
Ime Udoka Journeyman Ime Udoka, who most recently played with the Spurs last season, is more the supporting-cast type rather than the leading man to this longtime film and TV star. The two recently welcomed their first child, a son named Kez.
Shelden Williams Knicks benchwarmer Shelden Williams could find himself in some on-court competition with his wife, a former WNBA MVP.
Can you be a barely 6-foot backup point guard and date a Miss Universe? Yes, you can. Dallas' J.J. Barea is living the dream as a newly crowned NBA champion dating a Puerto Rican bombshell who was crowned Miss Universe in 2006.
Marko Jaric NBA journeyman Marko Jaric married a Brazilian bombshell in 2009, and she later gave birth to his daughter. And while Jaric isn't in the league anymore, he's included here because he's something like the patron saint for Average Joes everywhere.
Chad Ochocinco The relationship of outspoken Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco and his fiancée has been kept surprisingly quiet, all things considered. News of their engagement broke when Ochocinco's fiancée tweeted a picture of her with a 10-carat diamond ring on her finger. That was just the quiet before the storm; the duo is reportedly in talks to star in their own reality show up until their 2012 wedding.
Tony Romo After dating a couple of pop princesses (Jessica Simpson and Carrie Underwood), Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo married the 2008 Miss Missouri winner on May 28. The couple is reportedly expecting their first child.
Tony Gonzalez Falcons standout tight end Tony Gonzalez isn't legally married to his significant other, but the two had a commitment ceremony in July 2007. They have one daughter, and he has a son from a previous relationship.
Hank Baskett Former Vikings wide receiver and current free agent Hank Baskett has perhaps the most public of the NFL relationships, with his Playboy model wife. The couple have their own reality-TV show on the E! network and were wed at the Playboy Mansion. They have a son, Hank Baskett IV.
Tom Brady Patriots quarterback Tom Brady married this Brazilian supermodel in February 2009. Before marrying the pro bowler, she was the on-again, off-again paramour of Leonardo DiCaprio.
Brady Quinn Broncos QB Brady Quinn has been dating a U.S. gymnast since 2009. Quinn scores big points as a boyfriend. He took a red-eye flight recently to be with his girlfriend when she had surgery on a ruptured Achilles' tendon. Her participation in the 2012 Olympics is uncertain.
David Nelson Buffalo Bills wide receiver David Nelson dates a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, which got awkward when the Bills played the Cowboys. She once dated Texas Rangers pitcher Derek Holland.
Eric Decker Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker is dating a country music recording artist who recently sang during a Broncos halftime show. The singer appeared in Maxim magazine, and her debut album hit No. 23 on the U.S. charts. She was previously linked to Reggie Bush.
Nick Swisher New York Yankee Nick Swisher married a "Gossip Girl" star on Dec. 11, 2010. Previously, she was engaged to Justin Timberlake's business partner, Trace Ayala, and once dated tennis player Bob Bryan.
Ryan Howard Baseball doesn't have cheerleaders, so Phillies slugger Ryan Howard had to go to Lincoln Financial Field to meet the Eagles cheerleader who reportedly is now his fiancée.
Ricky Romero Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Ricky Romero is dating a Lebanese-born beauty queen who was Miss Michigan before becoming Miss USA in 2010. She also competed on "WWE Tough Enough" on the USA Network.

Bret Hedican NHL star Bret Hedican is married to a former Olympic gold medal-winning athlete, who is the mother of his two daughters.
Kris Benson The former MLB pitcher married the onetime model in October 1999. She filed for divorce on March 31, 2006, citing an "irretrievably broken" marriage, but withdrew the petition the next day. She raised eyebrows for her FHM cover as "baseball's hottest wife" and her controversial comments regarding marital infidelity on Howard Stern's radio show.
