Seeing that, Searight’s friend told her she was going to set her up with someone, and so she did. That is how the two met on April 10, 2017, and the lovebirds celebrate that day as their anniversary.

Before her fame, Searight used to upload videos on YouTube advising about weight gain and proper diet plans to girls with bad food habits. Given that she went through it, she wanted others to have a platform to get the help they needed.

The Pair Are Proud Parents To A Son

The football star’s girlfriend announced her pregnancy on Instagram on July 13, 2020. Their child, Braylon Aiyuk, was born two months later on September 7. The lovely pair’s relationship has grown even stronger after the arrival of their little bundle of joy.

Brandon’s partner, Rochelle has been candid about the effects of COVID-19 on her life and pregnancy. She had just found out about her pregnancy when the global COVID-19 pandemic broke out. She said she was initially scared mostly for her child.

Furthermore, Rochelle had to go to her appointments alone. She did not get a baby shower or a gender reveal, as people could not gather. Despite the stress she had been through, everything worked out just fine.

Delivery Almost Coincided With Aiyuk’s NFL Debut

When his girlfriend was pregnant with their first child, Aiyuk was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers. He was supposed to make his debut on September 12, 2020, while the due date for their son was on the 7th of the same month.

Choosing between his child and the debut of his professional career would have been challenging for the athlete. But, thankfully, his son was born exactly on the due date, and he was there for it.

Their Son Had A Medical Issue At Birth

In the insideLINES Podcast, Searight revealed that their son Braylon had a tumor in his colon at birth. The doctor’s appointment went on for over two months. The little boy had blood in his stool, and the medical representatives were trying to figure out what that was.

During that time, Brandon was busy with the regular season games and practice sessions while he also needed to be there for his son. His girlfriend took a greater responsibility in taking care of their kid while the NFL star was busy. The doctors performed a biopsy which showed that the tumor was not cancerous and Braylon is okay now.

Brandon Helped His Girlfriend Move On From Her Toxic Relationship

Well, Brandon’s significant other revealed that she had been in a toxic relationship in high school. According to her, it was both mentally and physically abusive, which took time to heal.

Since then, she has been preaching about the importance of being with the right person. While her high school boyfriend broke everything in her, it was Brandon who garnered the pieces and glued them back together.

Searight Opened Up About Other Side Of Being An NFL WAG

Rochelle has shared several series on TikTok where she talked about the “juicy things” she did not know about being an NFL WAG.

First, she revealed how the players are not supposed to sleep in the same room as their partners when they are traveling on game days. There is security to ensure the rule is not broken, and if it is, the fines are “close to $10,000.”

Searight also stated the superstition some athletes have about how lovemaking before games negatively impacts their performances, which she believes is “BS” and “lie.”

Contrary to what many might believe, nothing is free for the WAGs. They have to pay for everything, including suites, field passes, and even the regular seat tickets.
