Darren Waller and Kelsey Plum are getting married in Las Vegas over the weekend. Josh McDaniels and Dave Ziegler of the Las Vegas Raiders confirmed the news. Waller, the tight end for the Raiders, and Plum who plays for the Las Vegas Aces, are two of the better players in their sports.
Also on Saturday, Raiders defensive end Maxx Crosby and longtime girlfriend Rachel Washburn are getting married. The Clark County clerk’s office shows Waller and Plum applied for the marriage license on Jan. 22.
The online bridal website theknot.com also shows that the couple had an online registry under their names.
Maxx Crosby’s job as a defensive end for the Las Vegas Raiders is to get past an offensive line and disrupt the opposing offense. However, since March 11, 2020, Crosby has been working to get past his own internal offensive line and tackle his alcoholism.
Thankfully, the two-time NFL Pro Bowl star known for his bone-rattling quarterback hits, has had someone in his corner every step of the way. Maxx Crosby’s fiancee, Rachel Washburn, not only drove him to a rehab facility in 2020, but she drives him to be a better person day in and day out.
On March 11, 2022, the two-year anniversary of Crosby’s sobriety, he signed a four-year, $98.98 million contract extension with the Raiders, jolting his net worth considerably. By his side when he signed his monster deal? Rachel Washburn.
Even more exciting, on October 13, 2022, the couple welcomed their first child, a baby girl, Ella Rose Crosby. If Crosby didn’t have a reason to stay sober before, he certainly does now.
Love is definitely in the air, and for once we can see these athletes as regular people. Love has no dollar sign, and it does not wear a uniform.
I wish both of these couples the very best and many years of prosperity.
