Sports stars and celebrities have always been linked in a romantic setting in the tabloids, whether the story has substance or not. In rare cases the articles prove to be true and even long-term relationships are formed, none more so in the NFL where several high-profile players are now married to global names. Here are some of the success stories of famous NFL faces getting together with renowned stars, beginning with the most notable.

Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen

Brady rose to stardom with the New England Patriots, winning the Super Bowl three times before the age of 27. His charisma and good looks saw him linked with a number of eligible bachelorettes before he started a relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan. The couple were together for three years before ending their relationship in 2006, and had a son together named John Edward Thomas Moynahan. Shortly after his split with Moynahan, Brady began dating Brazilian supermodel Bundchen after being set up on a blind date.

They married in 2009 and now have two children together, while living in Boston. Both remain at the top of their professions, despite their family commitments, with Bundchen exceeding Brady’s salary with the Patriots with her income estimated at $44m per year.

Brady’s suspension for the deflategate scandal has allowed the couple to spend more time together after recently being spotted in Italy. However, the 39-year- old will return to the Patriots next week, where his team are backed in the latest Bet365 NFL betting odds at 4/1 to win the Super Bowl.

Aaron Rodgers and Olivia Munn

Fiercely-private Green Bay Packers quarterback Rodgers remained out of the media spotlight away from the field, until news emerged in 2014 that he was dating the star of the Newsroom and more recently X-Men Apocalypse.

The two have been spotted at numerous award shows, including the NFL Honours of the 2014 season when Rodgers won the NFL MVP award for the second year in a row. Rodgers has even spent time on the X-Men film set hanging around with Munn and her co-stars. There is no news on whether the relationship has progressed to an engagement, although the couple do now own a couple of dogs.

Russell Wilson and Ciara

Brady and Rodgers were once upon a time the rising star of the NFL, but that title now belongs to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. He is already has one Super Bowl crown to his name, narrowly missing out on another to the Patriots by throwing an interception on the goalline.

Both Wilson and Ciara were in previous relationships, with the Seahawks’ man having ended a two-year marriage with Ashton Meem. The singer was engaged to rapper Future and had son with him, born in 2014, although they ended their relationship in October of that year.

Wilson and Ciara began dating in 2015, and their first notable appearance together came at the White House Correspondents’ dinner, while they were also spotted at sporting events.

After a year together the couple announced their engagement in March earlier this year and were married in England at Peckforton Castle in July.
