American football defensive end for the New England Patriots of the NFL, Rob Ninkovich’s wife is the beautiful Paige Ninkovich.
About Rob Ninkovich
Rob was born in Blue Island, Illinois to a family of Serbian origin. His family had to relocate to New Lenox, Illinois after Rob finished through his seventh grade. He attended Lincoln-Way East High School in Frankfort his freshman and sophomore year then attended Lincoln-Way Central High School in New Lenox his junior and senior years.
Rob played at defensive end, tight end, and fullback. He also earned All-State honors for defensive end during his senior year. He was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the fifth round of the 2006 NFL Draft.
Well that’s enough about Rob, let’s get to know a little about his lovely wife.
Getting to know Paige
Paige attended Louisiana State University for her bachelor’s degree. She worked as a nurse in the Ochsner hospital system of Louisiana at that time.
Paige seems like a kind lady. She does a lot of charity work and always helps the needy. She participates a lot in many charitable events set up by the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation. Paige has participated in coat drives and other events to benefit needy children.
The couple first met during Rob’s rookie session at The Red Eye. They were at late-night hot spot in New Orleans’ Warehouse District. Paige was a nurse at the time she met Rob.
Here’s an interesting thing. Rob didn’t use any of his celebrity status to woo Paige. He wanted her to know him as a person and not a celebrity. I think that is the right way to go with relationships. Don’t you think so?
After the Patriots signed Ninkovich, these two have been living in New England.
Rob and Paige dated for nearly six years before deciding to get married and spend the rest of their lives together. They took the wedding vows on June 29, 2012, at the Immaculate Conception Jesuit Church in New Orleans.
This was Rob had to say few months before getting married, “She’s the best thing that has come out of New Orleans for me. (The wedding) will be hot and sticky, but it’ll be fun.” And we must say, it has been fun!
Even the band that played on their wedding eve, Groovy 7 said that they had a blast playing at the wedding. According to them it was an honour for them to perform at the wedding.
The couple was blessed with a child in Huly 2013. They named their daughter Aveille. Such a sweet name!
We hope happiness keeps coming their way. Good luck!
