Urban Meyer's daughter and his wife have come to the Jacksonville Jaguars football coach's aid after leaked videos showed him being uncomfortably close to a woman who is not his wife. "As much of our lives might seem different to everybody else's we're still human," said Gigi on social media on Thursday, October 7. Gigi's mother Shelley too backed her husband of 37 years. "We all make mistakes, we are all sinners," she said in her farewell Twitter message. "If you think you aren't? Then cast the first stone."
Shelley Meyer quits Twitter
Shelley informed social media users that she would be leaving Twitter because of the abuse she has been subjected to ever since the video went viral. "This will be my last post on Twitter," she wrote. "Frankly, I don't need the hate, vitriol, slander, trash that will @ me (this has never stopped anyway). To my wonderful followers/friends: THANK YOU. For your love, support, friendship, laughs-I will miss this the most. I love you ALL and wish God's blessings on you. Thank you. PS I will be deleting right as I post this so I will not see responses. Much love!"

Urban Meyer has three children -- Nicole (Nicki), Gisela (Gigi) and Nathan -- Gigi being the youngest daughter and middle child. Like her elder sister, Gigi was a volleyball player and was captain of her team at Florida Gulf Coast University for four years. Before starting her own fitness brand 'GFIT', Gigi became a professional wakeboarder. Born on March 26, 1993, Gigi is married to Brian Pruett, who attended the same university with her. Pruett also played on the baseball team.
Not ready to give up on her father, Gigi said, "We're good. As a family, we’re good, you know, and the reality of it is like, as much as our lives might seem different than everybody else’s, we’re still human. Like, we’re still human. We have human things that we deal with, and this is one of those things."
"But the good news is we know my dad and we know his character and he’s literally the most incredible person I know in my entire life, and I still hold true to that truth. Like that is my truth, doesn’t have to be your truth, but that’s my truth and I’m sticking to it. So we’ve all decided we’re going to move on, all right? We’re moving on and life is good. We are blessed. I have the most incredible family in the entire world," she added.
