Laurie Urlacher is the ex-wife of Brian Urlacher, a former football linebacker who played for 13 seasons with the Chicago Bears in the NFL. The former flames are now divorced. Since the divorce, Laurie has opted for a low-key life and is currently living a peaceful life with her daughters. Both of her girls are now in college, with the elder, Pamela, pursuing a law degree.

Following their split, Brian has moved on with his second wife, Jennipher Frost, but his former spouse, Laurie, has remained private when it comes to her love life. Here, we present some interesting facts about the former celebrity spouse and her current whereabouts.

Laurie Urlacher Met Her Future-Husband Brian Urlacher At College

The former couple, Laurie and Brian, first met when they both were at the University of New Mexico in the mid-’90s. She graduated from college in 1997, while her then-boyfriend, Brian, majored in criminology. In college, Urlacher also played football for the New Mexico Lobos as a linebacker.

Laurie and Brian Married in 2000

The ex-pair got married in June 2000, in a private wedding ceremony. Despite their initial happy marriage, the two separated in 2003. At the time, they were parents to their 2-year-old daughter, Pamela.

It was Urlacher who filed for divorce from his wife, Laurie, on July 14 in Lake County Circuit Court. As per sources, they were reportedly working together to sort out the details of their separation.

Their Daughter Pamela Urlacher Is A Journalist

Laurie and her then-husband, Brian, welcomed their first child, a daughter named Pamela, on December 14, 2000. Both parents have shared an incredibly close relationship with their daughter. Especially, Laurie frequently posts photos of her daughter on Instagram, celebrating every milestone of her life.

Back in December 2022, on the occasion of her 22nd birthday, the doting mother of two shared an adorable photo of Pamela and wrote,

Happy 22nd birthday to my beautiful daughter Pamela Brooke!! I love you so much!!
