Raiders TE Darren Waller’s marriage announcement with WNBA star Kelsey Plum caught NFL fans off guard

The Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller isn’t much of a news feeder; rather, he likes to keep certain things private, unlike most sports celebrities.

As a fan, we like to know personal information and updates on our favorite teams or players; sometimes, we even go to their bedroom gossip and antics. However, when it comes to the raiders TE, the fans weren’t much successful in penetrating deeply into his love life so far.

Thus his recent major life decision news left the NFL community in awe.

What did Darren Waller do?

The 30-year-old didn’t reveal much of his love life, but few people knew about his affair with a WNBA star Kelsey Plum. The couple- Kelsey Plum and Darren Waller wasn’t much of a show-off, so you might feel shocked knowing they finally tied the knot on Saturday.

The bride announces their matrimony from her Instagram account, sharing a harmonious angelic image of their wedding vows, writing just one word in the caption, “Him 🖤.”

Plum is playing for the Las Vegas Aces after being picked as a first-overall choice in the 2017 NBA draft. Since then, she became the WNBA champion, WNBA all-star team member, and all-star game MVP in 2022. In the meantime, she played for Turkish side Fenerbahçe during the offseason and won the Turkish Cup and Turkish Super League twice.

On the other hand, the groom, Waller, couldn’t draw much attention like her newlywed wife. Due to a substance use violation, he got a year-long suspension while playing for the Baltimore Ravens.

Later in 2018, he moved to Las Vegas and continued his NFL career for the Raiders. However, his last two seasons were obstructed by regular injury and despite his fitness issue, the franchise offered him an extension contract, making him the highest-paid tight end in the league.

Both the NFL and WNBA communities were surprised but delighted in their union. We from SportsZion send our best to the newly married couple.
