Jeanne O’Neil Grier is the wife of the New England Patriots quarterback Will Grier. Besides, the celebrity wife herself is the founder of Seven Oak Eyewear. The husband and wife met at the University of Florida way back in 2015 and have been together ever since.

When they started dating, Will had just started his professional football career. However, as the years passed by, he started gaining widespread attention which resulted in his love life being discussed in the media.

Although Jeanne and Will’s love life is quite evident to football fans, her early life details, her relationship with her parents, and other details regarding her private life are not well-discussed as of yet.

So, let’s have a closer look at her life down below.

Jeanne O’Neil Grier’s Married Life with Husband Will Grier

The Grier duo have been leading a blissful married life for some years now. It’s not clear when Jeanne and Will tied the knot, however, some online sources have claimed the duo exchanged vows in July 2016 in a private wedding.

After going through their social media, we can confirm that they at least got engaged back then. On July 25, 2016, O’Neil shared a photo where her husband can be seen on one knee while he holds her hands. “Forever with my very best friend and that’s not even long enough,” wrote Jeanne in the caption.

The picture appears to be from their wedding, however, we can’t confirm if it was indeed from their big day. “Forever on cloud 9,” she captioned.

Jeanne and Will met at the University of Florida in 2015, where the NFL quarterback started his collegiate football. The duo hit it off soon and started dating right away. They started dating in early 2015. The first instance when Jeanne shared the lovebirds’ photo was on March 18, 2015. Back then, she shared a gracious snap with the caption “👑BALL.” The photo was taken in Casa Marina, Jax Beach.

She Has Two Children with Her Spouse

Jeanne has two kids with her husband. The husband and wife gave birth to their first child, a daughter, Eloise Marie Grier on November 10, 2016. Jeanne herself announced the arrival of their little bundle of joy on Instagram a day later with a black-and-white photo of the newborn. “Eloise Marie Grier She couldn’t be any more perfect and we couldn’t be any more in love 11•10•16,” she captioned the photo.

On November 9, 2017, just a day before her baby girl’s first birthday, Jeanne revealed that she had nearly 40 hours of labor before she came into this world.

In June 2016, O’Neil announced her pregnancy on Father’s Day 2016, sharing a photo of a sonogram with the baby daddy in the background. Following the announcement, O’Neil shared several photos on her Instagram showcasing her baby bump.

Just over three years later, the lovebirds became parents to another daughter, Adeline James Grier. She was born on January 28, 2020.

Previously, she announced her second pregnancy on August 20, 2019, through an Instagram post.

She and Her Husband Enjoy Their Time at Home

Will Grier is more than just a footballer. While we see mostly his footballing skills, Jeanne has witnessed his versatility at home.

In an interview, Jeanne revealed that while at home, the husband and wife enjoy watching Netflix, cooking dinner together, listening to rap songs, and dancing.

She also emphasized that he is smart and funny and “makes her laugh like nobody else in the world.”

Will Grier’s Wife Jeanne O’Neil Grier is a Former Professional Dancer

O’Neil is a full-time mom as of now. However, she was a professional dancer before she became a mother. According to her LinkedIn details, she was a cheerleader for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a couple of years. She started in May 2012 and was there until December 2014.

While she was still associated with the Buccaneers, Jeanne started working as a professional dancer for SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment. She joined the organization in March 2013 and cut the tie in December 2014, which was the same time she left the Buccaneers.

What Does She Say in Being the Full-Time Mom?

Jeanne didn’t get into corporate jobs as other college graduates would. After her short stints as a dancer, she retired from professional jobs (at least until now). She soon started dating her current husband Will and then became a supportive partner.

And, when O’Neil Grier welcomed her first daughter, her journey as a full-time mother started. Jeanne thinks being a mother is not an easy job to take on. She has talked about her job as a mother on her website where she writes,

Although I took my job very seriously, when people asked me what I did for a living, I’d catch myself saying “oh, im just a mom right now.” As if being a mom is less than.

She further writes,

As if all of the hours of all my days weren’t filled with the extremely important work of raising exceptional humans.

Besides, Jeanne is a proud mother of two daughters and she proudly says “Eloise and Adeline are and will forever be my greatest accomplishments.
