Whitworth has been married to his wife, Melissa Whitworth, since 2006 (via ABTC). The pair have four children together, twins named Drew and Sarah, a son named Michael, and a daughter named Katherine.
Melissa is more than just a football wife and mother. She is an award-winning journalist, and she has worked for NBC10/Fox14 News in Monroe, Louisiana after graduating from Louisiana Tech. She was even a beauty pageant queen, winning the 2003 Miss Louisiana pageant.
Melissa is best known for the charity work she does behind the scenes. According to CNN, the Whitworths helped change the lives of a mother and her three children experiencing homelessness. Amalia Jimenez told the news network, “I’m not really good with sports; it’s not my thing,” adding that Withworth changed her life, “But he tremendously blessed us with everything because we started from scratch, like nothing.”
The couple has a charity foundation that raises money to help families like Jimenez’s. Melissa said, “It’s changing people’s lives,” she continues, “In turn, it’s changing ours and our kids’, and what they are learning and what they are seeing about life is really special.”
