Philip Rivers’ wife Tiffany Rivers started to date Phil in Junior High School. According to Phil, they stayed chaste until marriage. Does it sound impossible? Perhaps. But not for them! These two are like saints. When Philip met Tiffany in junior high, he told her she was the one he was going to marry. That information came from Philip’s mother, by the way. They originally both grew up in Decatur, Alabama. Philip moved to Athens, Georgia, but the couple stayed strong and continued to date. On May 18, 2001, they married at the ages of eighteen and nineteen.
The couple’s first child, a girl named Halle, arrived in 2002. She is now fifteen years old. All in all, the Rivers family consists of eight children. Philip only missed the birth of one child, according to Daily Mail. Tiffany went into labor and Philip’s plan consisted of Facetime, by his own telling. On the internet, the Chargers fans online felt it was a great decision, of course. Before the marriage, Tiffany actually converted to Catholicism one day before. The couple and, by extension, the entire family, is extremely dedicated to their faith. In fact, Philip Rivers’ wife never misses Mass, and neither does Philip (even on game day). He won’t play without receiving the Eucharist.
Philip Rivers’ wife also helped him create a foundation called Rivers of Hope in 2010. The foundation aims to find families for orphans up to the age of twelve. Their philosophy is that if they can get one family together with one child forever, it’s worth it. That’s a beautiful thing. According to CLM Magazine, Rivers of Hope pledged over 1,000,000 dollars to various other causes that involve adoption. This couple is very committed to helping kids out! Additionally, they organize a fun run every year to raise money for their foundation. Who doesn’t enjoy a nice walk or run to help kids?
