The love story between Matthew and Kelly Stafford is straight out of the movies. According to Us Weekly, while playing football for the University of Georgia, Matthew fell in love with Kelly, a cheerleader for the team. A few years later, the pair married and today, they share four kids: twin girls, Sawyer and Chandler and two more daughters, Hunter and Tyler.
Unfortunately, their fairytale was cut short when Kelly was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2019. According to the New York Post, Kelly began having vertigo spells and bouts of dizziness. After an MRI, a brain tumor was confirmed. She underwent a successful surgery and today, she has a clean bill of health.
After being in the headlines for some controversial posts surrounding her husband’s career and the COVID-19 pandemic, Kelly decided to create her own platform to discuss her opinions and her life. In 2021, she started her podcast, “The morning after with Kelly Stafford,” which covers everything from her life with her family to her parenting struggles to what it’s like to be married to an NFL star.
