American professional soccer player who plays for Seattle Sounders FC in Major League Soccer, Clint Dempsey’s wife is the sexy Bethany Dempsey.
The couple first met at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina. Although Bethany was dating someone else while they first met, they became good friends initially. Later they met again in Boston and both were single at that time. The couple fell in love and dated for one year. They lived a quiet, relaxing life there and would go to the movies, visit friends, or just lay back in each others arms. Afterwards, Clint proposed her and they decided to get married on July 28 2007. Her father Patrick Keegan seemed extremely happy to walk down the aisle with his daughter at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church. They are proud parents of two daughters, Elyse and Sophia, and two sons, Jackson and Clayton.
Bethany was born Bethany Jean Keegan in Boone, North Carolina to Patrick Keegan and Anita Keegan. She has a younger sister named Cyndy. She received her Masters degree from Appalachian State University, and after Clint moved to the UK she did an internship from England in Educational Psychology.
She is most famously know for the famous photoshoot she did in 2010 while wearing nothing but body paint. She was accompanied by other soccer wags and girlfriends like Abbey Clancy (England, Peter Crouch), Sarah Brander (Germany, Bastian Schweinsteiger), and Melissa Satta (Italy, Christian Vieri). This was her first ever modeling photo shoot, where the national jersey was painted on her. The entire paint job took 15 hours.
For an interview after the photoshoot, she was pretty excited and said, “You don’t feel naked, because you look in the mirror and it looks like you are wearing a swimsuit. The detailing is amazing.” During the 15 hour long painting session everyone on the set listened to a lot of music and chitchatted. She had a hard time later taking of the paint. “Getting it all off is a lot more work than just taking off a bikini. You have to scrub for a while.” she said.
The family now plans to have an enjoyable and easy life ahead. Clint said, “We’re living near Lake Washington. Just going to rent a place there with my wife and the kids. I’m looking forward to doing some fishing, maybe getting into fly fishing and doing more outdoor stuff. I also wanted to raise my kids in the States with the same kind of upbringing I had. You know, tee-ball and flag football and soccer. So I’m excited about that.”
