Mariano Rivera's wife Clara Rivera

Mariano Rivera's wife Clara Rivera (maiden name Clara Younce) have been married since November 9, 1991, and they have three children together, Mariano Jr., Jafet, and Jaziel.

Mariano Rivera is a man's man, right?

Not so fast:  Apparently, Clara was the one that proposed to Mariano in 1991.  But hey, according to Mo: "She got the ball rolling, but I bought the ring.  That's why they call me The Closer."

    You have an amazing woman. I have heard nothing but great things about her from people that have met or have come in contact with her. Congratulations Mo. You did a fine job in selecting a fine companion. The best to both of you.
