Brock Holt’s wife Lakyn Holt married him on November 9th of 2013. I would watch the wedding video, but I’m not actually sure one exists online (though with the perfect couples they tend to always surface). Now I know no couple is perfect, but these guys seem to have things pretty squared away.
I particularly enjoy Brock Holt’s wife’s name: Lakyn Holt is a cool name. It sounds kind of unique but not in the made up way; more like in the George Costanza way when he comes up with interesting names out of thing air like “Seven.” So Lakyn and Brock like to put up pictures of their adorable chocolate labrador Tank on their respective accounts, and I cannot get enough of this dog. You see, smart athletes and their wives put up meaningless drivel that people nonetheless still enjoy, and definitely keeps them out of trouble. Putting up pictures of your cute labrador is a perfect example. That’s the day that Tank the dog gets moved to second fiddle position.
Finally, a gender reveal we can get behind
Pulling back the curtain a bit. I have three kids. My wife finally let us learn the gender in advance on the third one, with the one agreement. There would be no gender reveal party. They’re overdone so often lately, and now the only ones we seem to enjoy are where the husband whiffs on a pitch with the pink or blue powder inside.
But, for Brock and Lakyn, they used what was available to them. The Fenway Park scoreboard. Not a bad way for Brock to find out he was having a boy. Their son, Griff Holt was born later in 2016.
Brock Holt’s wife Lakyn Holt
Prior to kids, Lakyn’s activities pretty much are just her doing whatever she wants: traveling around, hanging out with friends and Red Sox wives, watching games at Fenway, hanging out with Tank the dog. Brock is the Captain of the 2018 Jimmy Fund campaign, and Lakyn is clealry engaged as well. When not doing gods work – like raising money for pediatric cancer research, Tank is a popular topic for Lakyn.
She puts videos of Tank snoring while she watches the game (the 19-inning one versus the Yankees). She also put up a video of Tank eating ice, and I admit I too enjoy watching dogs eat ice. In fact, both Lakyn and Brock’s Instagram feeds are sort of like shows based on Tank’s life. Another favorite that Lakyn posted was when Thank the dog stole the remote control and ran outside. I think Tank gets a little spoiled, but who cares it makes for some fun videos, and his own Instagram account.
