When it comes to Antonio Brown’s wife, girlfriend and kids, we haven’t always known much. Previously, we’d reported on a Brown’s ex-girlfriend Shameika Brailsford whom Antonio sends checks to and very clearly doesn’t date anymore. Well, that’s really only part of the story since Antonio Brown’s girlfriend Chelsie Kyriss is the real lady in his life and has been for some time. According to NFL.com, Antonio Brown’s quarterback Benny Roethlisberger was urging him to get married back in 2014. There was a short post about their friendship. In it, Antonio basically said they were good friends, and Antonio’s girlfriend was good friends with Ben’s wife. According to Antonio, Ben is trying to make him get married. Listen, Antonio has his stuff together, more or less. He doesn’t need a savior like Ben did. You can understand why Roethlisberger thinks marriage is great: Ben Roethlisberger’s wife Ashley Roethlisberger essentially retooled his entire public persona and made him into Benny the cuddly teddy bear.
Antonio Brown’s son, and to a lesser degree his other kids, gained a bit of fame when Antonio Jr. appeared on Dancing With the Stars. Antonio Brown Jr. was all dressed up and part of a dance routine featuring the foxtrot. Brown’s other children include daughter Antanyiah Brown and young son Autonomy Brown.
Antonio Brown is another story. I mean, this guy can balance his life. He’s got his whole Dancing With the Stars media campaign in full steamroll mode in the offseason. Also, have you seen the Tetris piece haircut? Awesome. You’d think this guy wasn’t one of the best wide receivers in the league based on the sheer volume of stumping he does on social media for his dancing career. I wonder if Antonio Brown’s girlfriend ever gets jealous of Antonio’s dancing partner, Sharna Burgess. She’s a hot number, and the lady can move around the dance floor. I’m going to be honest- every time I see a professional dance team, I think to myself, “They’ve got to be together, right?” I mean, they’ve always got such a tight physical connection. Of course, I in no way mean to imply Mr. Brown has any thought of Miss Burgess. You’d think it was sort of a natural thing between all dance partners, but clearly not.
This couple seems really healthy to me. Chelsie rarely posts on social media, but early this year she randomly posted a photo of herself going on a movie night with Antonio. She’s usually pretty busy with their kids, and during the season she’s very much involved with watching Antonio score touchdowns. Antonio Brown’s girlfriend seems like a nice mother and a lovely woman to be involved with. I just wonder how much subtle pressure she’s getting from Ashley Roethlisberger to marry, given what Antonio has said about Ben.
