Who is Luke Voit's wife Tori Rigman? Yankees star has infant daughter with school sweetheart
Luke Voit is riding high on the joys of fatherhood, as his wife Victoria 'Tori' Rigman gave birth to daughter Kennedy James around two months back
New York Yankees' first baseman Luke Voit is having one of the best seasons of his career, with three of his six home runs giving his team the lead. The 30-year-old player is being hailed by fans for his back-to-back stellar performances this season. Perhaps, Voit is riding high on the joys of fatherhood, as his wife gave birth to daughter Kennedy James around two months back. When not hitting it out of the field for Yankees, we can assume Voit is spending quality time with his baby daughter, whom he calls 'princess'.
The star is happily married to his high school sweetheart Victoria 'Tori' Ann Rigman since 2018. Though a private person herself, fans get to know all about Tori Rigman from the romantic photos shared by Luke Voit on Instagram quite often. While he is busy crushing home runs, let us have a look at Luke Voit's love story with his beautiful wife.
Who is Tori Ann Rigman?
Formerly a catcher with St. Louis Cardinals, Voit was traded to the New York Yankees in July 2018 - a decision they never regretted. However, the transfer meant leaving Missouri, where he was born and grew up together with his future wife Victoria, and even bought a house with her.
Tori Rigman was born on August 21, 1992, to Jacqueline and James Rigman. She also has an older brother, Tyler Rigman, who often features in her family photos.
Luke and Tori had been dating for several years. The adorable couple attended the Lafayette High School in St. Louis together, but it is not known whether they dated in school as well. In fact, Tori Rigman was a cheerleading captain in school. After graduation, she went to University of Iowa when Voit started out as a catcher for Missouri State University.
The couple got engaged in 2017 when Voit popped the question in a heartwarming proposal. A year later, on December 15, 2018, the two lovebirds finally tied the knot, at the Stone House of St. Charles in their native St. Louis. They became pet parents to the cutest dog Lola, with whom they often pose for pictures together. Tori became pregnant around late 2020, and the Voits welcomed their first child to the world on May 28, 2021.
Tori is believed to be a fifth-grade teacher at the Oakland Elementary School in Parkway School District, where she grew up herself. Besides being a doting mother and a caring wife, Tori is also perhaps Luke Voit's biggest fan.
