Hollywood Celebrities Who Have Dated Athletes

While many people are obsessed with sports for the love of the game, and some are in it for the love of its players. After all, athletes are essentially realizations of the peak of human ability. Their performances in various sports do not only impress millions but also inspire others to follow their path. Their massive investment via exercise and constant training to effectively perform at their best is certainly an impressive feat. With that said, many athletes tend to attain celebrity status. Of course, some are instantly attracted to these people. After all, who wouldn’t?

Over the years, many celebrity non-athletes have been romantically associated with various famous and highly successful athletes. Of course, it is not surprising that pretty much everyone, from the fans to the media, would immediately have focused on developments of their love life and make investments in maintaining such focus. Many of these couples can be branded as “supercouples” due to their notable status. Some of these couples even went on to tie the knot. Here are some celebrities who have dated athletes:

Candace Cameron Bure and Valeri Bure

The Full House star Candace Cameron Bure has been happily married to her husband, former professional hockey athlete Valeri Bure, for more than two decades. So many twists and turns have come their way ever since they tied the knot in 1996. The former hockey star must have been smitten so badly by the actress as he reportedly asked her hand in marriage after less than a year of dating.

Candace credits her husband’s humor for adding more sparks to their already strong and long relationship. The amazing duo has been blessed with three wonderful children who are all grown up now. Their eldest child, a daughter named Natasha, is now 22, followed by a son, Lev, who is 21, and their youngest son, Maksim, who is 19.

Kendall Jenner and Ben Simmons

Kendall Jenner’s relationship with basketball player Ben Simmons has certainly raised many eyebrows when it lasted. They were first sighted together in June 2018 in Beverly Hills. According to Jenner in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres back in 2018, she has been dating with the Philadelphia 76ers player “for a while.”

Much of their relationship has been shrouded in mystery. In May 2019, they called it quits. Despite this, rumors ran around about their eventual return. While many of Jenner’s followers made an investment for the return of the relationship in January of 2020, it seems that there has been no confirmation about such a return.

Kerry Washington and Nmadi Asomugha

While Kerry Washington has been very vocal about many aspects of her life, it seems that she has been mum about her husband of eight years, former NFL quarterback Nmadi Asomugha. Washington and Asomugha first met back in 2010, when Washington was doing work in Broadway. Three years later, they tied the knot.

While Washington has been open about discussing her previous relationships, her current marriage to Asomugha has been absent. She has said that she and her husband have not been interested in talking about their married life. Together, they have two children. The couple has also been active in humanitarian causes, making investments in alleviating disadvantaged youth and assisting those with financial and domestic problems.

Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian

Perhaps one of the most wholesome relationships out there, tennis legend Serena Williams has been happily married to Reddit co-founder and tech investor Alexis Ohanian. Williams and Ohanian coincidentally met at a hotel in Rome in 2015. Shortly after that first meeting, they started dating, with Williams even inviting Ohanian to meet her in Paris.

They got engaged in 2016 via William’s poem, which was shared on Reddit. In September 2017, Williams gave birth to their daughter. They exchanged vows just two months later. Today, their bond remains unbreakable, and they have made an investment in raising their daughter.
