Golden Tate’s wife Elise Tate, 2018 Update
Man, time flies. I remember writing this post the first time after Golden Tate caught a hail mary game winner in Seattle.
Then I remember Matthew Stafford’s wife welcoming Golden Tate’s wife to Detroit.
And those were 6 and 4 years ago. Time flies.
But, a lot has happened in four years. Like a wedding for one. That’s right, in 2017, Golden Tate and Elise Pollard married up, and made it official. In January, 2018, the couple had their first child, a daughter Londyn Marie Tate. And there’s another kiddo on the way. These two have been together for years, and now on their third NFL team are making it work. Fun couple to watch grow up together.
It’s one thing to welcome the player. It’s one thing to welcome the family. But Matthew Stafford’s wife Kelly Hall went out of her way to welcome new Detroit receiver Golden Tate’s girlfriend Elise Pollard to Detroit City.
After Golden Tate signed with the Lions and gave Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson the reliable number 2 receiver they’ve desperately needed, Stafford’s girlfriend Kelly Hall took to Instagram to announce her excitement with the signing:
Pumped to have golden Tate..But probably more excited to have his girlfriend! #oowieoowieM
So there’s romances, and bromances. What is this? WAGmance? That sounds dumb. I’m ending this update.
Most of the world never heard of Golden Tate before last night (OK, Notre Dame fans, Seahawks fans, guys who like to drunkenly steal Maple Bars, and fantasy football sleeper junkies have heard of him). Golden Tate entered the national landscape last night with the catch that probably wasn’t against the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football. Tate was credited with the game winning TD catch, though most replays seem to indicate he didn’t actually come down with the ball.
You all know the catch. And after the game, Golden Tate’s girlfriend Elisa Pollard took to Twitter to brag about the catch and show off the game ball. Pollard tweeted the pic on the right as well as the saying, “Soo freaking happy 4 my baby! Both game balls!! Came out and dropped those 4 the hugs & kisses Love you!”
Elise Pollard is understandably supportive of Tate, and has many tweets showing Seahawk love and support. It’s not clear how long Tate and Pollard have been together for, and there’s very little information about her otherwise.
