She Met Her Husband Thomas When They Were Teens

Thomas and Lauren both went on a ski trip to Utah in 1998 with their respective families when they were 12 and 10. That’s where they met for the first time.

The trip was arranged by their mutual friends so they didn’t know each other well at that time. Nevertheless, the kids had a fun time together.

Their paths crossed again in college and this time they began dating. Though they were in different states for college, these two started seeing each other when Morstead moved to New Orleans in 2009. After two years, Lauren also moved there to be with her boyfriend.

After a few years of togetherness, they got engaged at one of their favorite restaurant, Irene’s Cuisine.

Lauren Got Married In 2013

Moore married Morstead on July 13, 2013. The intimate ceremony was held at Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Houston surrounded by their loved ones. Thomas’s brother, Patrick Morstead was his best man while Matrons of Honors were Ashley Ray and Christine Smith.

After exchanging vows, they threw a reception at Hotel Zaza. As for their honeymoon, the newly wedded couple had to keep their honeymoon short due to Thomas’s prior commitments to football.

As of now, they have been married for over a decade and are still going strong. The lovebirds are now parents to two sons and two daughters and are living together in New Orleans.

She Is a Mother Of Four Children

The Morstead couple have four children, Maxwell, Beckett, Maggie, and Rosalie. Lauren first became a mother on April 15, 2014, with the arrival of Maxwell Thomas Morstead. When the pair was expecting their first child, they wanted the gender of the baby to be a surprise. The firstborn took after his dad, as he has won awards for his basketball skills.

The parenthood has been a wonderful experience for Lauren and Thomas. The player referred to his wife as the best mommy ever. He said,” I’m grateful for an amazing wife who handles everything so well and always with a smile on her face.”

Morstead Helps Around In Her Husband’s Charity

Thomas launched an NGO, What You Give Will Grow with a vision to improve the lives of those in need through the support of local organizations in the New Orleans and Gulf South communities. This charity mainly focuses on children’s charities and cancer initiatives.

It was founded in 2014 and its main office is in New Orleans, Louisiana. Though there are employees who are responsible for its operation, Lauren always helps around. From operations to fundraising events, she is in the front-row seat.

Lauren Was Trolled By The Quarterback, Aaron Rodgers

Morstead mistakenly called Aaron, “Andrew” one time and this has now turned into an inside joke between them. In the summer of 2023, Lauren visited her husband at the training camp where she met his fellow teammate, Aaron. She knew who he was but just said, ” Nice to meet you, Andrew”. Rodgers then responded with, ” Yeah, sure, call me whatever you want.” Though he was joking, Lauren was mortified by her mistake.

Nevertheless, Rodgers got her back. While appearing in the Pat McAfee show, he said,

I’m thankful for Thomas, he’s become a good friend. His wife doesn’t really know my name. She called me the wrong name when she met me, she called me ‘Andrew.’ I’m not sure who she thought I was, but that’s a little joke between Thomas and I and Daphne. I don’t even know, I think her name is Diane or Daphne or something. Probably neither of those.

Her Social Media Presence

Morstead is active on Instagram under @laurenlizy but her account is private. She may have made her account private out of privacy concerns. Besides, one can find glimpses of her on her husband’s feed as he frequently shares pictures of her.
