Let’s take a dig inside to gain knowledge about the supportive nature of a Professional Football player’s wife

Rachel Karras was Ted’s Best Friend Before She Became His Wife

Ted and Rachel’s relationship started at college. The duo came across at a university party and hit it off soon. According to the reports, Rachel was a Kappa Delta at the university, who apparently arrived two hours early and met Ted.

They became good friends soon and remained best friends for some time before they started going out.

After dating for nearly five years, Ted and Rachel got married on February 17, 2018, at the Arista Hotel in Illinois. Their wedding was held privately and only their family and close friends were in attendance.

On February 17, 2021, Karras shared a couple of pictures from their wedding day marking their third wedding anniversary. “How time has flown by already! 3 years of marriage with my best friend Rachel Karras have been the most delightful, wholesome, and meaningful of my life,” Ted wrote in the caption.

They Got Engaged at The Trump Tower

Ted and Rachel’s engagement is a little more unusual than we’ve heard. Both of them had planned a whole weekend for their proposal. Rachel said that she and Ted went to visit her parents one weekend and it started from there.

After meeting her family, Ted and Rachel’s father went for a dinner separately where the NFL star could ask for Rachel’s hand in marriage.

A couple of days later, Ted and Rachel took a limousine to Chicago where Ted proposed to her in Trump Tower. After their engagement, they celebrated it with Rachel’s part of the family and their college friends.

They Both Feel Fortunate to Find Each Other

Ted and Rachel have been leading a happily married life so far. The two don’t have children yet and looking at the NFL star’s social media posts, we can tell they aren’t in a hurry to expand their family. The two have been together since their late teen days and obviously, they have seen lots of ups and downs in their personal and professional life. But they have always stood up for one another.

If we go through Ted’s social media posts, we can see how grateful he has been to find his wife Rachel. In one of his Instagram posts, he shared a quote, “But everything thing means nothing if I ain’t got you” and “my ride or die” showing love and affection to his wifey.
