Marquise Goodwin’s wife Morgan Goodwin is an Atlanta native who grew up with a mom, a dad, and a stepdad in her life. The new era family provided unconditional support, which she was proud to explain in the short biography on their wedding site. She’s still quite young and just finished her track and field career running for the University of Texas and graduating with a degree in public relations. She says she plans on being an actress with a backup plan of becoming a public relations professional that deals with athletes or celebrities.
I think the last part of her wedding bio is pretty funny. Morgan Goodwin says “Marquise calls me selfish, but when it comes to him, I’m not selfish at all (only sometimes…OK, maybe I am).” That’s got to be one of the funniest things I’ve read in an “about section” of a wedding site. I want Marquise Goodwin’s wife to become an actress now because she clearly has personality.
If you can see the personality coming off the page like that, it’s a good thing. She’s essentially saying “He said this about me, but it’s totally not true. Well, only sometimes it’s true. Actually, it is true.”
She goes on to say:
“I love challenges and I am always on the go (Marquise hates this about me LOL).”
I’m not sure how challenges and always being on the go correlate, but then she continues:
“I can be an airhead sometimes and Marquise hates that about me too.”
Okay, duly noted. She then continues:
“He also tells me that I don’t listen (giggles). I can also be forgetful at times.”
I’m telling you, you’ve got to be really charismatic if you’re able to freely admit all these faults and still be lovable, as she actually states she is at the end of the bio. I believe it. There’s actually a fantastic vine video (or whatever they’re called) of her talking smack to Marquise and him saying under his breath “I can stand her.” Check that out.
I just wanted to quickly mention that Marquise’s sister, Deja, has cerebral palsy, which is a horrible and crippling disease that prohibits her from controlling any of the muscles in her body. Marquise made the statement to ESPN that “I realize that I’ve been blessed in my life and that I’m blessed with an opportunity to do things for myself. She lives through me, because she’s never been able to do anything like that. We live vicariously through each other.” That’s powerful stuff.
