With Justin Verlander of the Houston Astros marrying actress and model Kate Upton this weekend and another Astro proposing to his girlfriend on the field, one wonders what’s in the water and just what it takes to be one of the best sporty couples.

Then it also gets us thinking, what other notable sporty couples are there?

Derek Jeter and Hannah Davis

She may be 16 years younger than Jeter, this power couple has been through it all and are stronger because of it. They welcomed their first child this year, a beautiful baby girl named Bella Raine.

It’s hard to tell who is bigger in this couple, with outstanding pop sensation and noted defender for Spain and Barcelona. They have been together for 7 years and they seem very much in love.

Arguably the best soccer player in the world, he has a soft spot for his hometown sweetie, whom he has three delightful children with.
