American professional baseball pitcher who is in the Washington Nationals organization, Mat Latos’s wife is Dallas Latos. Mat has played in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the San Diego Padres, the Cincinnati Reds, and the Miami Marlins, Los Angeles Dodgers and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, and Chicago White Sox.
Mat and Dallas first met through Dallas’s then-roommate. Dallas never thought she will be living her life with a Baseball player. In fact, she told her roommate, who was dating a minor leaguer, that she would never date a baseball player. But as we all know, love is blind and no force can stop two people to be together who are meant to be together.
Their first date went interesting and Dallas found Mat to be charming and funny, who made her laugh. And nobody can deny that if you can make a woman laugh, she is all yours. All of this happened in the off-season of 2009. They went together to Mat’s Spring training, but at this point also, Dallas maintained the fact that she is just a cab ride and a flight away for home. Slowly both of them fell in love and secretly married in December 2010. Their intention was to keep this a secret and have a proper wedding once again. But Mat blurted out in one of his radio interviews that he got married that summer! The news spread like fire and they quickly told their family about the marriage before anyone else could tell them. They had their formal wedding again with friends and family around. Funny story, right?
Dallas also maintains a blog which goes by the title – “So I Married a Baseball Player”. The blog gives insight of her life from small things like what she is cooking for dinner to organizing a charity event.
The couple had their first child, Landon Marshall Latos, on August 25, 2014. Dallas was very excited about the baby and wrote in her blog that she wasn’t going to like one of those moms who keep on posting their baby pics on Social Media. Though she said jokingly, that it was big lie that she told to herself, and couldn’t stop sharing her baby’s cute pictures. A mom’s heart is a mom’s heart!
Dallas has a kind of love-hate relationship with Social Media. On some occasions she uses Twitter excessively and tweets about everything related to her personal life. When she gets bored of it, she deletes or temporarily suspends her account. Right now her Twitter account says that the handle is booked whenever Dallas decides to come back.
In the past Dallas has been a model, dancer, singer, actor, voice-over actor. She was also involved in pageantry since the age of six. She has got a degree in Business and Economics. After her graduation, she worked as an intern with LightRiver Technologies and landed a full-time job there. She also worked for a local business as an Executive Assistant and business consultant.
Now she concentrates on her family, and takes care of Mat and Landon. Dallas is a wild child and has tattoos on both arms. She has snakes as pets, over seventy reptiles to be exact!
