How Many Children Does Hope Solo Have?
Her husband, Jerramy Stevens, the World Cup champion and two-time Olympic gold medalist, has two children. They are twins, Lozen Orianna Judith and Vittorio Genghis, who was born on March 4th, 2020, and are two years old.
On March 6, 2021, she posted on Instagram to commemorate their first birthday, writing:
“We celebrated Lozen and Vittorio’s first birthdays two days ago!” It’s been heartbreaking to see how quickly they’ve grown up, how proud we are of them, and how we’ve survived our first year in a pandemic as a family.”
“Even though our babies are more familiar with masks and Zoom calls than we are, we are so grateful for all of the love and support from family, friends, nurses, and doctors!” She went on.
“We feel love, they feel love, and every day has been as exhausting as it has been rewarding.” “Here are a few highlights of our twins,” the athlete concluded, holding an adorable photo of the twins.
Inside Her Marriage To Jerramy Stevens
Jerramy Stevens, a former NFL star who played for the Seattle Seahawks and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, is Hope’s husband and the father of her children.
After dating on and off for a while and not speaking for about a year, the couple began officially dating in mid-2012 and married a few months later in November of the same year.
The 42-year-old was arrested just one day before the wedding on suspicion of assaulting Hope. However, he was released without charge the next day, and they married the following day. Following their marriage, their relationship was marred by drama, but they went on to have twins in 2020 and appear to be happier than ever.
Hope’s Counsel Addresses Arrest On IG
Rich Nichols, a member of Hope’s legal team, took to Instagram on Monday (April 1st) to issue a statement on her behalf regarding her recent arrest.
“Hope is unable to speak about the situation due to counsel’s advice, but she wants everyone to know that her children are her life, that she was released immediately, and that she is now at home with her family.”
“The story is more sympathetic than the initial charges suggest,” he continued, “and she looks forward to her opportunity to defend these charges.” A court date has been set for June 28th, according to the New York Post.
