10 Richest Women Married To Professional Sportsmen: Beckham, Kardashian Or Shakira?

vicWe men talk sports and the players who do their thing for a living. That is one undeniable fact that comes for being a real man. It is rare that we include the wives of our idols in the discussion. And when we do, which is rare, we only find ourselves yapping how hot and gorgeous pro athlete wives are and how we, poor mortals, could never duplicate their fate.

But in this list, we are going to do something different. We are still going to talk about pro athletes and their wives. Only this time, we are going to stack their fortune and list the 10 with the biggest net worth. On that note, here goes.

#10 Erin Andrews — Net Worth: $3 Million

Gorgeous and talented Erin Andrews made a name for herself in the world of sports long before she met and wed husband Jarret Stoll of the Los Angeles Kings back in 2013. Andrews started her professional career as a journalist in 2000 and soon carved a spot in ESPN in 2004. From then on, she steamrolled her way into the sporting world’s consciousness and never went away. Becoming the host of College Football on FOX Sports in 2012 is perhaps the biggest highlight of her career.  Aside from hosting sports shows, she is also doing gigs on Dancing With The Stars.

#9 Paulina Gretzky — Net Worth: $5 Million


Technically, Paulina Gretzky is still single but is slated to marry pro golfer Dustin Hunter. Bearing the Gretkzky name, being daughter to hockey superhero Wayne Gretzky has its perks and advantages, which led to successful modeling and singing careers. Basking in a net worth of $5 million, Paulina is set to get richer once she gets married to Hunter and a lot more once she inherits 25% of her father’s $200 million estate.

#8 Bridgette Wilson — Net Worth: $ 8 Million


Celebrity marriages, though highly celebrated, tend to fizzle shortly after tying the knot. However, you can count Bridgette Wilson’s union to tennis superstar Pete Sampras an exception. The actress, who starred in Billy Madison, I Know What You Did Last Summer, and Mortal Kombat, finds herself still married to Sampras for more than a decade. 14 years into the relationship, Wilson has amassed an $8 million estate, the bulk of which is coming from her acting career.

#7 Kaley Cuoco — Net Worth: $20 Million


Known for her role as Penny in the hit TV series The Big Bang Theory, Kaley Cuoco has been in the industry for quite a while. Like Bridgette Wilson, Kaley tied the knot with a tennis player, Ryan Sweeting.

#6 Khloe Kardashian — Net Worth: $20 Million


Known for being, well, a Kardashian, Khloe rose to fame that comes from being a sister to a more popular (though not necessarily well-loved) Kim. Starring in their own reality show, Khloe has garnered her share of fame way before she married basketball player Lamar Odom. However, like most celebrity marriages, Khloe-Lamar was feeble and weak right at the beginning and the two have separated ways shortly after. Though Khloe already filed a divorce, the two are still married in terms of technicalities.

#5 Hilary Duff — Net Worth: $25 Million


Hilary Duff once graced our TVs as the teenage sensation Lizzi Maguire, which became her platform towards success, fame, and fortune. Aside from acting, she also forayed into music and fashion, endeavors which helped her build a $25-million net worth. Now she plays wife to professional hockey player, Michael Comrie and just had their first child.

#4 Carrie Underwood — Net Worth: $100 Million


Carrie Underwood burst into fame and the limelight when she won American Idol Season 4 and has never strayed from it since. The tempting siren has the chops to sell albums and pack concert venues to the brim, the earnings from which basically make the bulk for her $100-million estate. Professional hockey player Mike Fisher agreed to be traded to the Nashville Predators so he could be with Carrie most of the time. And you really can’t blame the guy.

#3 Shakira — Net Worth: $200 Million


Shakira is well known to the world as that Latina singer with a pretty face and an attractive behind that gets more appealing once she makes it shake. With her popularity in the music industry still searing and soaring, it’s no wonder that Shakira now has $200 million under her name. But she gets more star power after tying the knot with soccer player Gerard Pique of FC Barcelona in Spain. Music and football are huge industries and one can only imagine how much star power and money Shakira can make in her very lively music career.

#2 Gisele Bundchen — Net Worth: $290 Million


Supermodel Gisele Bundchen already has the world at her fingertips. This gorgeous goddess of the catwalk has showcased several skills outside modeling, appearing in a number of films as well. Gisele’s already large net worth has found a significant boost when she married American football superstar New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady. But aside from her humungous money stashed away, Gisele also has a big heart as she constantly engages in charitable acts to help people in need.
