Patrick Mahomes would have preferred to be playing next Sunday, but the Chiefs quarterback seems to be in good spirits with his girlfriend, Brittany Matthews, by his side at the Pro Bowl. Mahomes is playing with the AFC squad in Orlando, and Matthews is there cheering him on along with his mother, Randi Martin. Matthews has been posting photos on Instagram throughout Pro Bowl week.
“Mahomes Crew, missing Jack❤️ #probowl2019 #chiefskingdom,” Matthews posted referring to Mahomes’ brother, Jackson Mahomes.
After the Chiefs overtime loss to the Patriots in the AFC Championship, Matthews posted a video of her embracing Mahomes after the difficult loss.
“You’re the best in my eyes and that will never change ❤️💛 #MVP,” Matthews posted.
Here’s a look at the Instagram video Matthews posted after the game.

Tom Brady Offered Patrick Mahomes Words of Encouragement After AFC Championship

Tom Brady just quietly approached a security guard waiting outside the Chiefs’ locker room — and asked if he could see Patrick Mahomes. Brady was escorted into a room where he spoke briefly with him. A very clear display of respect from one incredible quarterback to another.

Matthews is not the only one who tried to encourage Mahomes. In the midst of celebrating another Super Bowl appearance, Brady made it a point to find Mahomes after the AFC Championship. During an ESPN interview, Mahomes detailed what Brady said to him after the game (via Kansas City Star).
I think it was a little bit of both. It was such a great game with so many emotions where it was going back and forth at the end. He just came up to me and was kind of giving me, saying, ‘Good game,’ and everything like that.
I mean, he was in my place. He was young. He got to win the Super Bowl in his first year with you (Bruschi) and everybody and so he understands that, I mean, time it flies by and ‘make sure to put in the work. ‘And I think he saw that I’ve put in the work to be in those situations.

Matthews runs a personal training business in the Kansas City area. She admitted that she did not make it to the gym right after the Chiefs loss to the Patriots, but still offered a few workout tips for those that did.
“If you got into the gym today and you were apart of chiefs kingdom yesterday, I applaud you👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 Me…not so much but here’s a lovely few lower body exercises for yaaa🤩🍑 8-12 reps 3-4 sets. Save it for your next leg day and of course share with me how you love it☺️ Outfit: @lululemon Shoes: @adidas,” Matthews posted.
Matthews asked for some gym recommendations in the Orlando area. Later in the week, she posted a photo from the gym noting how excited she was to see the sun.
“Just growing the gunsss💪🏼💪🏼. Save for a later and definitely give these a go💯. 8-12 reps 3-4 sets •••••Guys, I have never been so happy to see the sun here in Orlando🤩☀️,” Matthews noted.
Mahomes and Matthews are hoping they are making a trip to the Super Bowl rather than the Pro Bowl next year.

Nadal’s Girlfriend, Xisca Perello, Called ‘Wildcard’ by Rafa

Rafael Nadal and girlfriend, Maria “Xisca” Perello, are notoriously private about their relationship. After initially preferring to avoid the spotlight, Perello now attends Nadal’s big matches, but Nadal’s girlfriend still keeps a low profile. This led to an awkward moment after Nadal’s win in the fourth round of the 2019 Australian Open.
Nadal was asked by Jim Courier how he and Perello planned to spend their time together between matches. As expected, Nadal avoided giving many details to Courier, but did note his girlfriend is more than a “wildcard” now that the couple has been dating for 14 years.
Courier: I see Maria, your girlfriend, she’s back in Australia again this year and I’m wondering, you have a day and a half now off. What do you guys like to do when you’re not working, when you are here in Australia and you have a little bit of time. I told you, you were not going to like this question.
Nadal: …As I say to you a couple of years ago in 2017, I think, it was the first time she was able to be here. She received a wild card in that moment. Now, after 14 years together she does not need wildcards at all…She’s coming whenever she wants. That’s how it works. What am I going to do? Rest, try to sleep well tonight. Then have the right breakfast tomorrow. Have some rest in the afternoon and try to wake up with my 100 percent energy for that quarterfinal match. That’s all.
It is unclear what Nadal was referring to by “wildcard”, but the tennis player may have been referencing his girlfriend now regularly attending matches. Perello spoke with The Telegraph in 2011 about her previous stance on not attending matches.
“Traveling together everywhere, even if I could, would not be good either for him or for me,” Perello told The Telegraph. “He needs his space when he is competing, and just the idea of me hanging around waiting on his needs all day wears me out. It would asphyxiate me. And then he would have to be worrying about me … No. If I followed him everywhere, I think there’s a risk we might stop getting along.”
Here’s a look at Courier’s on-court interview with Nadal.

Nadal’s Girlfriend, Xisca, Is Part of His Foundation Team
GettyNadal’s girlfriend, Xisca Perello and sister, Maria Isabel Nadal at the 2018 U.S. Open.
Perello may not enjoy the spotlight, but she is passionate about helping Nadal give back. Perello is the Director of Strategy and Relations with Institutions of the Rafa Nadal Foundation.
Nadal uses his notoriety as one of the top tennis players in the world to help young people in need. Here is an overview of the foundation’s vision and mission, per their website.
In the Rafa Nadal Foundation we strongly believe in the transformative power of sport and education, two tools that allow children and teenagers to go as far as they can, regardless of their background or personal and social conditions, even for those who have learning difficulties or disability…
Our mission is based upon the belief that every child and youth should have access to equal opportunities now and in the future. Through our projects in Spain and India, we work alongside with them to make the most of their abilities, empowering them and fostering values such as self-improvement, respect and effort.

Novak Djokovic’s Wife, Jelena, Watches From Home as Son Starts Preschool

Barring an unexpected change, Novak Djokovic’s wife, Jelena Djokovic, will be watching the Australian Open final from home. The couple’s son, Stefan, is starting preschool so Jelena and their two children are watching the tournament from home. The couple also has a daughter, Tara.
“My son is not watching me, he is going to preschool,” Novak said, per Express. “I actually talked with him about 45 minutes before the match and he was telling me about Spiderman. He was acting as a fish in an aquarium and doing different things. He just tells me ‘Good luck and make sure you win’. But to be a father, there is no better thing to happen in my life. My wife, we have been together for 15 years and now we are parents to two angels. To me, this is life.”
While his son is back home learning, Novak is hoping to add another Grand Slam title to his collection. Jelena remains busy with her writing as well as encouraging fans to live a healthy life through her social media posts.

Djokovic’s Wife, Jelena, Blogs About Health & Fitness

Who’s excited?! 👋 Our conference for entrepreneurs is coming up in less than 3 days❗️👏💃🤪❤️®️ @orgnlmagazine . Uzbudjenje raste! Za 3 dana se održava #DareToBeOriginal konferencija za preduzetnike u Dorćol Platz-u
A post shared by Jelena Djokovic (@jelenadjokovicndf) on Sep 30, 2018 at 12:54am PDT

Jelena has her own website where she mostly writes about healthy living. Jelena notes every blog entry aims to answer the question “How to live a healthy life with purpose?” Here’s how Jelena describes her philosophy on her website.
I look for answers in different books on psychology, self-help, business, entrepreneurship, spirituality, and nutrition. I will share my findings and takeaways, as I have learned by now that the best way to memorize the new things we find is to write them down.
The beauty of being a seeker of knowledge is that you can take any path you’d like. There is no right or wrong, there is just a process of learning and shaping and growing. It can take you anywhere. As my blog grows, we will see where this path will take me and I’ll do my best to share with you what I learn so that we may both grow together.
Some of Jelena’s recent posts include why she recommends mediating, health book reviews and philanthropic giving. As she begins a post about meditation, Jelena explained how she started getting interested in health and fitness.
You might have gathered by now that I am VERY passionate about healthy living. I love researching ways to improve my health and luckily, there is already so much knowledge out there, and different opinions, that the journey is really adventurous too.
I would say that my interest in how to “survive” started when I moved away from my parents at the age of 18 to a foreign country and became a student. I had a lot of things on my plate to deal with, and for the first time, I had to take full responsibility for the outcome.
All those novelties brought me a lot of pressure and stress. I felt overwhelmed at times which affected a lot my results and openness to new experiences, learning, and friendships. Anxiety and stress are no joke.

Saquon Barkley’s Girlfriend, Anna Congdon, Posts Photo With Baby From Giants Game

Category : Football , new york giants , NFL , Sports , WAGs

It looks like Saquon Barkley’s new baby girl took in a Giants game with his girlfriend, Anna Congdon. After the Giants-Saints game in Week 4, Congdon posted the above photo on Instagram.
“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference,” Congdon posted in the caption.
Congdon and Barkley have been dating since his days at Penn State. The couple welcomed Jada to the world earlier this year, just days before the NFL draft. Congdon also recently posted a photo of Jada Claire with her mother.
“Happy birthday to the woman i am lucky enough to call mom; whose genuine spirit radiates like no other. thank you for teaching me to always see the best in others, to trust in God’s plan, and to love my family above myself. being a mother came natural because of the example you set, for that i am forever indebted to you. ❤️,” Congdon said of her mother.

Anna’s Family Has Been Helping the Couple Raise Jada Claire

Barkley told the New York Post back in June that Congdon was still living with Jada back in Pennsylvania, and her family was helping the couple raise Jada. The plan is for the entire family to move to New York, but there has been no word on when (or if it has already) that will take place.
“I think my girlfriend has been doing a great job of taking care of our daughter, and her family has been helping her out a lot,” Barkley told the New York Post. “…Try to find the right time for her to move in, and we could just live together. I am very involved, but I wish I was way more involved, I wish I was there with her, to be able to spend more time with my daughter would be amazing.”
On the field, it has been a challenging start for Barkley and the Giants. Barkley has played well, but the Giants are just 1-4 through their first five games. Barkley has rushed for 308 yards and three touchdowns. He has also been heavily involved in the passing game with 274 receiving yards and two touchdowns.
Barkley admits he wants to grow into one of the leaders of the team, and believes the offense is only going to get better.
“That’s something I wanted to do as a goal of mine, but I know you can’t just take on that role from day one,” Barkley told The Morning Call. “You’ve got to grow into that role and earn the respect of your teammates, and that’s something I’m going to continue to try to do every single day…I’ve been saying from day one since I got here that I believe in this offense, I believe in this team, I believe in the coaching staff and I believe the sky’s the limit. It wasn’t going to be pretty from day one. We wouldn’t want it that way anyway. We’ve got to keep growing.”


Maddie Oberg, Carson Wentz’s Wife: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

Carson Wentz is fully recovered after tearing his ACL and is back as the lead quarterback of the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles.
After his team earned that coveted title last season, Wentz married Madison “Maddie” Oberg. It is believed that the two started dating sometime in 2017, as Oberg made her debut appearance on Wentz’s Instagram account in December, just after he had surgery.
“Surgery [check]. The comeback officially begins now! The Lord truly blessed me with this beautiful young lady to walk by my side and support me through all of this,” Wentz captioned a photo of him and Oberg, taken from his hospital bed.
Just after the Eagles won Super Bowl LII, Wentz popped the question, and Oberg said “yes!” The two married five months later.
Here is what you need to know:

1. Wentz Proposed to Her After the Super Bowl & She Married Him in July 2018

The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback did not play in Super Bowl LII on Sunday, February 4, because of his injury, but after his team won, he proposed to Oberg.
“She said YES! And now Maddie and I both got us a ring! Can’t wait to marry my best friend! God is doing some amazing things and I can’t thank him enough,” Wentz tweeted on February 6, sharing some sweet photos from the couple’s proposal. He also shared the photos on his Instagram account.
Wentz was in Minneapolis with the rest of his team for Sunday’s big game. Although he wasn’t playing, he was on hand to watch the Eagles take on the New England Patriots.
After the game, Wentz simply couldn’t wait to ask Oberg to marry him.
On Monday, July 16, Wentz announced that he and Oberg had tied the knot. Below are some photos from their wedding. The couple used the sweet hashtag #WentzUponATime to tag photos of their special day on social media.

Wentz also shared a short video that captured some of the special moments of his wedding day. You can check that out below.

The newlyweds honeymooned in Greece.

2. She Studied Elementary Education at Missouri Southern State University

According to Fabwags, Oberg’s parents are Brian Oberg and Lisa Broughton. The 22-year-old has two sisters.
The site goes on to report that Oberg studied elementary education at the Missouri Southern State University.
“The School of Education is comprised of three departments: Kinesiology, Psychology, and Teacher Education. The curricula and the delivery system for the programs in the School of Education are rooted in current research and best practice. Our students acquire an array of skills, experiences, knowledge, and theories that will benefit them throughout their careers,” the university’s website reads.

3. She Kept Her Relationship With Wentz Private for a Long Time

Oberg and Wentz weren’t fans of publicizing their relationship and didn’t share too many photos of each other on social media before they became engaged. However, the two were very close and had met each other’s families before deciding to make their relationship publicly official.
A couple of weeks after sharing the first pic with his new lady, Wentz posted about sharing a “new Christmas tradition.” The pictures he shared showed him and Maddie having fun while decorating Gingerbread cookies.
It appears as though Oberg spent the Christmas holiday with her boyfriend and his family. Although their relationship is relatively new, Oberg has met Wentz’s family and friends, as evidenced by the following photo, taken on Thanksgiving.

 

4. She & Wentz Went on a Mission Trip in May 2017

The internet was quick to put a couple of pieces together, thanks, in part, to social media. It appears as though Wentz and Oberg were both in Haiti last year on a mission trip. It is unclear if the two went together or if that’s how they met.
According to the New York Post, Oberg was an intern at Mission of Hope: Haiti.
Wentz traveled to Haiti in May 2017, along with his former teammate, Jordan Matthews, and some members from his church.
He spoke about his decision to go to Haiti last year.
“I believe in Mission of Hope’s initiative completely, and I feel that this sports complex will be an incredible way for the youth of Haiti to have more opportunities to enjoy sporting competition, to further their education, to have access to healthy meals, and to enjoy being around a Christian community to help further their faith,” Wentz said in a statement back in September.

5. Wentz Previously Dated Melissa Uhrich

Wentz was previously dating Melissa Uhrich. The two didn’t publicly announce their split, but fans caught on when Wentz deleted all of the photos of him and Uhrich from his Instagram page.
Wentz and Uhrich started dating in high school. After graduation, Urich and Wentz went to different colleges — Wentz attended North Dakota State while Melissa attended Concordia College — but they were only about a 10-minute drive from one another, making it relatively easy to make their relationship work.
After college, when Wentz was drafted by the NFL, Uhrich stuck by his side. Although she planned to move to Philly to be with her guy, Wentz previously told ESPN that the two would be living separately, until they got married.
“That’s really important to both of us, and to both our families,” Wentz explained.
However, the former couple’s time in Philly ended shorter than either of them anticipated. Fans noticed that something was awry when Wentz removed all of the photos of Uhrich from his Instagram account sometime last year.
