Continuing our series of posts proving that even kickers and lineman land hot chicks, let’s meet Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski’s wife, Hallie Gostkowski.
The former Hallie Swearingen (no relation to Al, of HBO’s Deadwood fame, we think at least) met Stephen Gostkowski while the two shared anatomy and physiology class at the University of Memphis together. While it seems strange that a future NFL player would be taking serious classes like anatomy and physiology, keep in mind that Gostkowski is a kicker.
Hallie continued that path, now working as a nurse in the greater Boston area. Stephen and Hallie dated through college before he proposed following the 2007 season. The couple was married April 19, 2008 and play parents to two young sons and two dogs. The couple enjoys traveling, specifically referencing Atlantis as a favorite destination – as well as Italy, Australia, and South Africa as places they’d like to go.
In an interview with WHDH-TV in Boston, Hallie Gostkowski says the following about her husband:
I have 100 percent confidence in Stephen’s ability. It’s a talent that he’s blessed with. He’s not going to make every kick. I’m a nurse, I have bad days, he has bad days.
