As for her career, Torsha is the Chief Executive Officer at Tomlinson’s Touching Lives Foundation. She founded this foundation with her husband, LaDainian, to build bridges of unity across all religions, classes, races, and ideologies.

Besides running an NGO, she is also the co-owner and vice president at Snug Pet Resort. Last but not least, she is a singer.

LaDainian Tomlinson’s Wife Is Also A Musical Artist

Oakley’s musical journey started before grad school when she became a gospel soloist. She initially took vocal and flute lessons and later started her singing career by performing in talent shows, weddings and anywhere she could. Growing up in Dallas, she was surrounded by wonderful music that influenced her the most.

Torsha created her YouTube channel in 2014 under @TorshaLynnMusic and ever since then, she started taking music seriously.

Plus, the aspiring artist also has a Facebook page dedicated to her songs. However, she has gone quiet on her singing career, as it has been a while since she last uploaded anything related to her music.

LaTorsha Oakley Met Her Husband, LaDainian Tomlinson, In College

Like many people, Oakley’s love life began in her collegiate days. She met the former NFL player at Texas Christian University. They started dating soon after. Tomlinson took her to a pancake house for their first date, and ever since then, they have been together.

The lovebirds finally tied the knot on March 21, 2001.

The athlete started playing in the league the same year he got married. From supporting him at college matches to cheering him during his games, Oakley has been through it all.

Well, LaDainian is the homebody in the relationship, and it is LaTorsha who encourages him to go out. The soulmates have also attended many red carpet-events together.

The Couple Has Two Children

After being married for almost ten years, the duo became parents of a son and daughter. They gave birth to their eldest, Daylen Oliver Tomlinson, on July 7, 2010. They chose the name Daylen because of its uniqueness, only to later find out it actually meant “little Mountain.” The parents knew it was the right choice.

A year later, after having a baby boy, the pair welcomed a baby girl, Dayah Lynn Tomlinson, on September 10, 2011.

Nine months after she was born, her dad retired from the league. LaDainian left the game for the children he loves. He shared, “I always said I wanted to be the father that was there for his kids.”

The sibling duo is enthusiastic about sports. The elder brother plays baseball with his dad’s jersey number while the younger sister is a champ at volleyball.

LaTorsha And LaDainian Lost Their First Born

Sadly, the young mother carried their daughter, Mckiah Renee, for six months before she had a miscarriage in 2005. Torsha was diagnosed with Sjogren Syndrome, an illness that cuts off blood to the fetus. The pair felt disheartened when they lost the baby. They kept her ashes in their family house urn and her belongingness in their son’s nursery.

Well, LaDainian grieved in private because he felt like he needed to be strong in front of his wife.  Four years later, when they found out about their second pregnancy, they took extra care. When they became father and mother again to a son and daughter, they told them the story of the late Mckiah to let them know they had a sister.

LaTorsha Oakley’s Net Worth

The multitalented LaTorsha has an estimated fortune of $300K. It is quite less in comparison to her husband, Tomlinson, who himself has a fortune of $25 million.
