Jenkins was on the football team, while his girlfriend was one of the top soccer goalkeepers in America. The athletic pair started as athlete friends, but their friendship soon turned into romance.

As with every other relationship, the soon-to-be-married duo also faced some difficulties. Well, both of them had anger issues. Rayshawn used to meet his anger management therapist three times a week. Emily also was a very angry person and stated, “We needed to calm down.”

In the end, the lovebirds helped each other to overcome their problem.

They Are The Parents Of Two Kids

As stated above, Emily and Rayshawn are parents. They have a son, Ace Ray Jenkins, and a daughter, Blaize Reign. They welcomed their firstborn, Ace, on March 8, 2016. Emily became pregnant in her last year of college and graduated, flaunting her baby bump.
