Super Bowl LVI: Matthew Stafford celebrates win with wife Kelly and daughters
Postgame, Mathew Stafford said, 'I’m just so proud of my team'
Matthew Stafford was on the moon after his team sealed a glorious victory against the Cincinnati Bengals with a close margin of 23-20. He commemorated the joyous occasion with his wife Kelly and their four daughters, twins Sawyer and Chandler, 4, Hunter, 3, and Tyler, 19 months. It was Stafford's first-ever Super Bowl win on Sunday with a kiss from wife Kelly Stafford, making the moment even warmer for his fans.
After Los Angeles countered the Bengals in Super Bowl 2022, the Rams quarterback, 34, embraced his wife of nearly seven years on the field at SoFi Stadium, as the celebrations continued. “I’m just so proud of my team,” Staffordsaid postgame, according to 24/7 Sports. “There are just so many guys on our team who deserve this. So many great players. Just guys who had given their heart and soul to this team.” he added.
Kelly wrapped her hands around her hubby, cherishing the glorious moment of their 2022 Superbowl win. Stafford connected with Rams receiver Cooper Kupp in the fourth quarter to put the Rams up 23-20 over the Bengals. After the game, Kupp was named this year’s Super Bowl MVP. Praising her husband's hard work and dedication, Kelly expressed on her popular podcast, “The Morning After,” that the experience felt surreal. Kelly and Stafford's four daughters joined the celebrations after the team's victory.
“I’m so excited we’re here, it doesn’t feel real, it really doesn’t,” she said on Tuesday’s episode. I’m so proud of him, I’m so excited for him, it’s something he has worked his whole life for. If you would have told me when we were in Cabo, wondering what the future held, and then realizing the future was to be a Ram, if you were going to tell me we’d be in the Super Bowl, I definitely wouldn’t have believed you.” Kelly said in her podcast.
Stafford spent the first 12 years of his NFL career with the Lions in Detroit before being traded to the Rams last January. Around that time, Stafford had connected with Rams coach Sean McVay in Mexico by chance. Kelly, who has been in and around Stafford since their college days at Georgia, teased last week that her listeners would be in for a treat if the Rams won. “Honestly, depending on the outcome, it might be a podcast on no sleep, it might be a podcast where I have a little alcohol in my system if we do take that victory — hoping for that,” Kelly said Wednesday in an interview with “Good Morning America.”
Earlier the week, speaking to 'The people', Stafford had expressed his sentiments and support from his family, " I would never have made the decision to go in and ask to be traded unless I had full support from my family and understanding that things were going to change, things were going to be different both professionally and personally. Having that support is the reason that I'm here today," he added. Kelly and Matthew, who married in 2015, welcomed their fourth child in June 2020, and today his family is happier than ever!
