Super Bowl 51 between the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots was on fire, but what’s even hotter about the NFL are the WAGS (wives and girlfriends of high-profile sportspersons) who hold it down for their men behind the scenes.

Take a peek below to see who we selected as the hottest NFL WAGS in the game!

Husband: Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver, A.J. Green

Before becoming a wife to A.J. Green and a mother to their 4-month-old son, Easton Ace Green, Miranda Brooke was a Island Def Jam Music Group’s R&B/Pop sensation where she was on her way to super stardom after releasing the video for her buzz track “Hater” in 2011. The video garnered more than 1.6 million YouTube views to date.

In more current days; Miranda seems to be enjoying the WAG life to the fullest as a supportive wife and devoted stay-at-home mom.

Miranda and A.J. married in Spring 2015 and welcomed their son in September 2016.

Husband: Seattle Seahawks quarterback, Russell Wilson

Mrs. Wilson needs no introduction. The “Princess of R&B” is now the Queen of NFL WAGS! Since walking down the aisle in July 2016, Ciara and Russell have been the example of #BlackLove, #RelationshipGoals, #MarriageGoals…all of that!

The Grammy-winning singer had a pretty exciting year in 2016. She landed a modeling contract with IMG, snagged the gig as Revlon‘s new spokeswoman and recently announced that she signed a record deal with Warner Bros. Records. YES! We’re ready for some new music, but we’re even more excited for the new bundle of joy that’s on the way.

Rumor has it that CiCi is expecting twins, but that hasn’t been confirmed nor denied. The addition to the Wilson family will be Ciara’s second child, who will join her 2-year-old son, Future Zahir, and the first for Russell.

Draya Michele

Fiancé: Dallas Cowboys cornerback, Orlando Scandrick

Draya Michele had a rocky introduction to the world when she made her debut appearance on Basketball Wives LA in 2011. Proudly admitting to her affairs with many men in young Black Hollywood and NBA players, viewers didn’t take kindly to her “it’s OK to be a groupie” attitude. However, Draya’s attitude didn’t stay that way, as she became the show’s breakout star and wanted to show the world that she had more to offer than her body and sex. She raised eyebrows during a Breakfast Club radio interview when she said that ,“your hoeness can be deleted after a certain amount of time,” and maybe she’s right because over the last six years, it seems that everything has turned around for her good.

Since that interview, the 32-year-old mother, actress, fashion designer and entrepreneur has launched three successful fashion lines “Mint Swim” (2011), “Fine Ass Girls” (2013) and “Beige & Coco” (2016). She also made her acting debut in 2015, starring in TV One’s Will to Love and Terrence J’s The Perfect Match in 2016.

Draya and Orlando became engaged in 2015 and added to their blended family in April 2016, welcoming their first child together, Jru Scandrick.

Nessa Diab

Boyfriend: San Francisco 49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick

HOT 97 radio personality Nessa Diab has a voice that’s heard nationally and she uses that voice wisely. In addition to interviewing the industry’s top celebrities on her show “The Nessa Show,” or hosting MTV shows and reunions, the TV personality supports her fine and woke bae with his “Know Your Rights Camp,” a free campaign for youth fully funded by Colin Kaepernick to raise awareness on higher education, self empowerment, and instruction to properly interact with law enforcement in various scenarios.

The quarterback and “Girl Code” star, who secretly began dating in 2015, but kept the courtship on the low until February 2016, seem to be a match made in heaven, as they continue to protest and take a stand together against social injustices and policy brutality in urban communities.

Autumn Ajirotutu
