Deion Sanders and Tracey Edmonds’s personal life
Sanders is very famous for playing in both the NFL and MLB. He is currently hosting the 21st and Prime podcast on Barstool Sports.
He has won two Super Bowls and made a World Series appearance. He is the only athlete to play in both the Super Bowl and the World Series.
Tracey Edmonds is a very popular businesswoman and producer. She has produced many Television series like College Hill, New in Town, Jumping the Broom, End of the Road, and many more. She has also received Emmy Awards for her hosting in Extra.
It was in 2019 the couple announced their engagement in an Instagram post on Valentine’s Day. The couple have had previous marriages also. Edmonds has two sons with the famous musician Babyface, while Sanders has two children with his first wife and three with his second wife.
Sanders met Edmonds at a movie premiere party back in 2012, which she produced. Later that night, he made sure to get her business card through one of his friends.
After a few months, Sanders reached out to Edmonds to have a meeting with her to discuss his vision for a reality series. Edmonds later revealed that she was planning to produce the reality show that they were discussing, which was Deion’s Family Playbook. But they started growing fond of each other and ended up dating.
The Television series was released back in 2014, and Edmonds, who was always behind the camera, was seen alongside her then-boyfriend Deion Sanders in the series.
The couple seemed to be in a long-distance relationship for a very long time. Sanders once shared that he and Edmonds did not have to call regularly or text throughout as they were trying to give space for each other to build their career.
Sanders also said that he just loves what both of them contribute to society and to the world while they are apart from each other. Edmonds also said that there is no regular schedule with them, and they just do their best to catch up and see each other.
The couple did not seem to have any issues that they had disclosed to the public. Even though many of the fans are not happy with the breakup, they are supporting their idols in their decision.
