Now that we have talked enough about Sharpie, lets talk about the couple.
Sharpie and Abby
The couple first met while attending college in Vermont. Yes, these two are college time sweethearts. They were both studying at the University of Vermont. These two dated for a long period of 9 years before deciding to get married.
Although Patrick’s name has been linked with many women during this time period, Abby seems to have trust in her husband. And we guess, if these two have trust in each other, then who are we to say anything. The two took their wedding vows on July 24, 2010 in Watch Hill, Rhode Island. Sharpie’s Blackhawks teammate Patrick Kane was also among the ones who attended the ceremony.
After Abby became pregnant, she went into labor during a game in which Sharp scored an overtime winner against the Islanders. Sharp remembers talking to his wife that day when he was expecting that she would congratulate for the good game. Instead, she informed him that she is going to have baby that day! Patrick said, “I forgot everything about hockey pretty quick.”
The couple was blessed with a baby daughter on December 9, 2011. They decided to name the beautiful angel as Madelyn Grace. Patrick says that holding her little angel is the best feeling for him. Awww!
Patrick says that Abby is his lifeline and helps him to keep himself grounded. He says that Abby has been with him for more than ten years now, and they’ve been through a lot.
Getting to know Mrs. Sharp
Abby was born Abigail E. Banever on April 06, 1981 in Farmington, Connecticut to Jennifer Burke Banever and Dr. Thomas Banever. She has two older brothers Andrew, 39, and Seth, 36. She also has two sisters, one elder and one younger. The elder sister’s name is Sarah and younger one is known by the name Emily.
On being asked about how she feels about her husband being a hot model as well and his name being linked to women, she laughs and shakes her head. She says that people don’t know the real Patrick and if people actually met the real Patrick, they wouldn’t be getting all this kind of stuff. She’s a proud wife.
Don’t you think that the couple looks really beautiful together? And now with their sweet daughter, they look even more complete.
