45. Peyton Manning and Ashley Thompson
One of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of the NFL, Peyton Manning met his wife Ashley during his freshman year in college. It’s no coincidence that Ashley seems like the ultimate girl next door, since in this case, she was actually introduced to Manning by her parents’ next-door neighbor. The two tied the knot in 2001 and have twins, a son and a daughter. His son is only nine years old, so it’s early to say what the future holds in store for him, but judging by his family legacy of football players, it’s safe to assume he will go in his father’s footsteps.
Ashley Manning’s career is rather different that her husband’s, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Ashley is a businesswoman, and although it’s hard to compete with her husband’s success in the NFL, she is very accomplished in her field of work. For her work as a businesswoman and a real estate developer, she received the nickname the “Business Mogul.”
