#48: Zach Ertz and Julie Ertz
This is what it looks like when two professional athletes are married. Julie Ertz, the wife of the Philadelphia Eagles tight end, is a professional soccer player for the Chicago Red Stars, who are part of the National Women’s Soccer League. Dating a football legend has its difficulties, as does dating a soccer star; that’s why a significant part of the couple’s relationship is on the phone. However, despite the distance, the pressure and the busy schedules of both athletes, they manage to make it work and constitute an inspiration for couples around the world.
Besides being the most athletic celebrity couple, Zach and Julie Ertz are on of the sweetest couples of the sports world, and the hottest couple of Philly sports. The two met back in their college days eight years ago, at Stanford University, where Zach played football and Julie visited and catch a Stanford baseball game. Their athletic professions didn’t come up in the first few dates, but rather, Julie was attracted to his shyness and humility, while Zach was attracted to Julie’s kind heart and her caring nature.
