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.
Congratulations Derek and @hannahbjeter on the birth of your baby girl, Bella Raine Jeter, born Thursday, Aug. 17.

Gerard Pique and Shakira
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.
Phil and Amy Mickelson
This golf great and beautiful wife met when she was a junior at Arizona State University and a Phoenix Suns cheerleader.

David and Victoria Beckham
This power couple is a pair of unstoppable fashionistas. She hails from the Spice Girls as Posh Spice, and he is the drool-worthy phenom that took soccer by storm. They met at a charity football match, prompting him to request a meeting with her. It’s been love ever since.
