Rejoice, readers! This post contains no pettiness from either side of the relationship which it will report on. Both parties are responsible, generous, and mature adults. There is exactly zero baby mama drama contained herein. It’s a Festivus Miracle! Blake Sims’ ex-wife Rafaela Souza has a healthy relationship with Blake, and she has her life in order.
Sadly, it’s rare that athletes really have their stuff together when it comes to ex’s, but Blake Sims and is ex-wife Rafaela do indeed have their stuff together. Blake is only 22 years old, but he was married to Rafaela for four years, and they have a 5 year-old daughter. Well, he’ll still sort of be a young man by the time she’s off to college, so that’s a pretty good deal for him as it relates to enjoying his forties. Rafaela works at Gainesville Heart and Vascular Group, and based on her job title of “medical records technology,” she is the lady who gets your file when it’s time to have a look at your heart history. I myself have actually had to have some heart work done, so I know how important it is to get the right file! Rafaela takes care of their daughter Kyla in Gainesville and Blake goes there whenever he can.
Blake and Rafaela were high school sweethearts, and Rafaela had Kyla as a junior in high school. Apparently Blake’s grandfather told him he couldn’t bring a child into the family if he wasn’t married. So he got married. Trying to make a long-distance marriage work over the course of four years didn’t work out, but both Blake and his ex-wife Rafaela are both good friends. No court nonsense, no child support payments not being paid, just good old fashioned kid sharing. Blake says that he had initial fears about being a father, but it actually helped him perform better and reach higher. They’ve got it all figured out.
