Jimmy Nelson’s wife Melissa Nelson married him in December of 2016 and became engaged in March of that year. I read in a Brewers blog that Jimmy proposed at her sister’s house at the end of saying grace. Honestly, that sounds super awkward, but he says she felt happy and surprised. I can only imagine. Jimmy commented in the blog post that Melissa did all the planning and he just requested good food. It’s always a good deal when you can make an awkward proposal and then do no work at all for the wedding!
Melissa keeps a detailed blog about her life and fashion. This is very common in the world of sports wives. I’ve read dozens of them. Usually they talk about things like how to avoid oily skin and also anything related to clothes and jewelry. Hers is certainly in the upper echelon of sports wives’ fashion blogs. If you’re curious what makes a good fashion blog, the answer is consistency and content. It also helps to actually have something interesting to say. In Melissa’s case, she tries hard to provide a perspective. Jimmy Nelson’s wife also possesses a positive outlook (as is necessary for any blogger). Since 95% of all bloggers give up on their blog within two years, it helps when they stay positive. She conveys a good vibe in all her posts.
Jimmy Nelson’s wife shared a picture of their Alaskan Klee Kai dog in March of 2017. Then I realized she maintains a separate account just for the dog. This account contains a grand total of 217 pictures of him. Yes, Melissa has a lot of extra time on her hands! The dog’s name is Kane, and he looks sort of like a Husky mixed with a fox. In July of 2017, Melissa joined other player wives and girlfriends on a trip to New York City to watch the Brewers take on the Yankees. She posted many pictures on her blog and also talked about going to an Italian restaurant with Jimmy and eating tons of pasta.
