Lace up those cleats because these couples ball so hard, you’ll be running back to your TV to watch them on this season of Baller Wives. Prepare yourselves for a season full of football-related puns, I make absolutely zero apologies.
Y’all, the way that some of these ballers look at their wives will make your heart melt. We’re lookin’ at you, Julius Jones! Watch the video below to find out which ladies didn’t even know that their future husbands were football players (Hint: definitely more than one) and which Baller Wife “rolled with the touches.” One thing is for sure: If we can expect more puns like that one, we’re in for an amazing season.
Everyone loves a good meet-cute, and these ballers and their wives are no exception.
Aja insists that her husband Channing Crowder “harassed her” at a charity event, and then again at a club until she finally agreed to talk to him. Aja played hard to get and made sure that Channing was serious about his interest in her. BTW, “We have chairs, y’all have butts” is going to be our new pick up line. Thanks, Channing!
Asante and Jeniva Samuel have been married for five years, though they disagree a bit about who was pursuing whom when they met in a night club.
Michael Vick has this to say of how he met his wife Kijafa in 2002: “Long story short: I bagged her. That’s all that matters.” Mike may not have been “Grandma Approved” at first, but Kijafa admits that he proved to everyone that not all ballers are bad news when it comes to relationships.
Kelly and Julius Jones may be head over heels in love now, but Kelly admits that she “had reservations about dating an athlete because “there are certain stigmas attached to it.” At the end of the day, though, she couldn’t resist that baller lifestyle. My favorite fun fact about this couple is that they have a joint Instagram. That’s how you know it’s real.
We can’t wait for these couples to do what they do best: Ball. If these couples throw shade half as well as they can throw a football, we’re in for a treat.
