Ian Desmond’s wife Chelsey Desmond married him in 2010 and had three of his kids. Two of the kids are Grayson and Cruz, and I don’t know the other one’s name. Chelsey never misses home games. While Ian is in the city, you can rest assured she will see him play. The Washington Post wrote a long piece about Chelsey and her kids. It explained how she keeps her up until late hours so they can see their dad. I don’t know her kids personally, and I don’t care about her kids, and thus I don’t care when they go to bed. The Post piece came out in 2014. Now, she lives the same life in better weather.
Chelsey herself is a full-time mom. She met Ian way back in Sarasota, Florida in 5th grade! Now that they live together as man and wife and with three kids, they try to provide structure for Grayson and Cruz. Both of them believe it’s important they meet other kids who aren’t just baseball kids. Ian Desmond’s wife cares a lot about raising them right, and so does Ian. It’s a logistical problem sometimes to find normal kids for your children to hang out with, apparently.
In fact, Ian Desmond’s wife Chelsey started “dating” him in fifth grade. She became instantly drawn to him when she saw him at the age of ten. Chelsey played soccer and volleyball and softball in school. She even earned a scholarship to Lynn University in Florida. She didn’t attend the school because she missed her hometown too much. They only officially started dating in 2005 after Ian completed his first season of Major League Baseball. Chelsey made the statement in the article: “When you’re dating a baseball player, all anyone wants to tell you is, ‘He’s cheating on you.'” She then said he was the best boyfriend ever. I imagine that translates to him being the best husband ever too.
