Who is Michael Oher's wife? Former NFL player who inspired 'The Blind Side' marries long time sweetheart
NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE: Former NFL player Michael Oher has scored a unique touchdown. Oher wed his lady love, Tiffany Roy, in a spectacular wedding on Saturday, November 6. Michael Lewis' best-selling book and the Sandra Bullock starrer 'The Blind Side' chronicled Oher's arduous journey to football greatness.
According to People, more than 200 guests attended the couple's wedding in Nashville, Tennessee. Oher, 36, posted a picture of herself and Roy at the altar on social media. “Filled with joy, can’t believe people took their time and came to celebrate,” Oher's caption read. “My beautiful wife, I love you so much, thank you for blessing me with our family! Easily the best single weekend I’ve ever been apart of. Not being from the area everyone came to was even more special. I won’t be able to tell everyone thank you, if I saw you this weekend, thank you! I’m complete, let’s keep trending upward,” the former NFL player continued.

Roy walked down the aisle to Beyonce's 'Halo', where she joined Oher and performed personalized vows. Prior to getting married, the pair had been together for 17 years. They have four children together, daughters Kierstin and Naivi, sons Kobi and MJ. The two met for the first time at the University of Mississippi.
"The most magical part was our vows," Roy told People. "For a few seconds, my mind was cloudy. Everything was moving so fast that I could not hear or focus on my own thoughts. Until I felt my dress get caught on my shoe, which prevented me from walking. That's when everything became clear. I heard my son ask me, ‘Are you ready?' and I said, 'Of course I am. I've been waiting a long time for this magical day.' It was filled with so much joy, excitement, and happiness," she added.
In the NFL, the former Ole Miss great played with the Ravens, whom he steered towards a Super Bowl victory in 2013. After a short stint away from football in 2016, he eventually agreed to play for the Tennessee Titans and Carolina Panthers.
The movie, 'The Blind Side', released in 2009 and raked in a massive $300M at the box office. The movie received a Best Picture nomination, and Sandra Bullock, who played Leigh Anne Tuohy, Oher's adoptive mother, won the Academy Award for Best Actress.
