Matt Patricia’s wife Raina Patricia is the mother of their two sons, Dominic and Dante, with another one on the way any day now. She’s apparently a Jimmy Buffett fan (is there anything more Massachusetts than that?). One of her favorite Buffett lines is “don’t try to describe the ocean if you’ve never seen it.” That’s kind of a snappy one, ey? The couple actually hung out with Buffett at a concert in Cincinnati in June of 2015 and let the guy wear Matt’s Super Bowl ring. I’ve got to say, the ring looks completely absurd and is the size of a large sand dollar. Most importantly, it should be noted that our lovely Buffett fan is pregnant and expecting in December of 2015.
For Halloween, Matt Patricia’s wife dressed up in a kind of camouflage dress. It was sort of half-assed compared to Bill Bellichick, his girlfriend, and even Matt’s costumes. Matt was dressed as a biker hippie guy with a camouflage shirt and a flannel. The couple was thematically crushed by Bill and his lady, who went the full pirate garb route. Hey, at least Raina and Matt participated, right? If you’re going to a costume party, you’ve got to at least put something different on. Speaking of people who went the extra mile for the Patriots Halloween Party, I should just mention briefly that Tom Brady and Giselle Bundchen did not disappoint as the cowardly lion and Dorothy from “The Wizard of Oz.” Great costumes, perfect people! Alright, now let’s quickly move off of their relationship before a covetous wave of envy washes over me.
Before she married him, Matt Patricia’s wife was known as Raina Grigelvich. She’s actually originally from Foxboro, according to Boston magazine, which had a series of small blurbs about her visiting Iceland and riding small horses around the country. I guess they thought it would be somewhat interesting for the travel section. She went there with her brother Scott and also visited the capital of Reykjavik. This was before she was known to be in a relationship with Matt, so her being featured in Boston magazine was just sort of a lucky coup for her. Let it be said that her name change from Raina Grigelvich to Raina Patricia seems very cool to me. Raina Patricia sounds pretty nifty compared to her old name.
