Carson Palmer's wife Shaelynn Palmer

Carson Palmer's wife Shaelynn Palmer isn't interested in a roommate. After Chad Ochocinco announced he would be moving in with the Palmer's in the months leading up the Bengals training camp, Carson quickly denounced that idea. However it appears that Carson wasn't the only one making that decision.
Carson says, “As soon as I walked in the door from work the other day, she just gave me that look. I’m like, ‘Whoa, calm down. It’s media stuff. It’s Chad being Chad. I told her, ‘Don’t worry. I haven’t made any commitments to having to clear out the boxes in the spare room to make a bed for him. Don’t worry about that. It’s not going to happen.”

Carson Palmer met his wife Shaelynn at USC Freshman Athlete orientation where Shaelynn Palmer played soccer. The two were married July 5, 2003 with Carson's brother and teammate Jordan Palmer serving as best man. Shaelyn gave birth to the couples first children in January, 2009, having twins: one boy and one girl.

Carson Palmer and his Shaelyn Palmer live in Laguna Beach in the offseason, and are extremely active in that community. During the summer, the two hosted a charity golf tournament for Hillview Acres Children's Home: a live in facility that treats abused and neglected children ages 6-18. The two also funded the construction of a new building on that campus, named The Carson and Shaelyn Palmer Cottage.

    They were named Benedict and Arnold... sort of a foreshadowing if I do say so.

  3. Sue

    Their twins are Fletch and Elle. They recently had another daughter whom they named Brees.

    You believe in Carson. As a life-long Raiders fan (and nearly a USC alumnus myself...I picked Boston U over USC ?!?) so do I. I can't wait for the 2012 season. You have a beautiful family and one super-talented QB for a husband. Just win baby!

    My son is a huge fan of Carson (I as well especially when he was in Cincinnati). Anyway I thought this may be the best way to get in contact and say that my son who is 8 would be more than thrilled to have your husband come to his birthday party this year (AZ Cardinals is the theme). It would mean the world to all of us for this opportunity. We appreciate the kind of person he is as well as your family as a whole. Thank you
