Nathan Eovaldi became a World Series champion in 2018, ten years after he was drafted in 2008 and seven years after he made his Major League Baseball debut. Nathan was certainly over the moon about his achievement seeing that he had to undergo more than one Tommy John surgery in the course of his career. But if there was one person in the world who was more excited than him about the accomplishment it was his wife Rebekah Eovaldi.
As expected from someone married to an athlete, Rebekah has had to live with her man moving from one city to another as he played for different teams. She has supported him through thick and thin, so she certainly must have enjoyed his victory a little bit more than anyone else.
Rebekah Eovaldi Is A Native Of Houston, Texas
Various sources online have reported that Rebekah Eovaldi comes from the same hometown as her husband. She is said to be a native of Houston, Texas where she was born on September 11, 1989. This makes Rebekah a few months older than her husband as he was born on February 13, 1990. Other than her parents’ name which is reported to be Kenneth and Ruth Ann Wilkinson, not much else is known about her family and childhood.
With Rebekah and Nathan being described as high school sweethearts, it is believed that she attended Alvin High School. It was in this school that Nathan excelled as a baseball player to earn a college baseball scholarship to attend Texas A&M University.
The Couple Got Married In 2011
While it is not clear if Rebekah Eovaldi ended up following her boyfriend to attend Texas A&M, the pair sealed their love by entering a marriage contract in December 2011. That year had proved to have been a remarkable one for Nathan as that was when he was finally able to make his professional debut after having been drafted three years before that.
Nathan Eovaldi’s wife Rebekah does not hold back in celebrating this huge milestone as she always takes to Facebook to celebrate her anniversary any year it comes around. She and her husband have an adorable tradition of taking a new anniversary photo while holding up the one from the previous year. This way, you can have a glimpse as to how far they have come since their nuptials.
To celebrate in 2015, the pair traveled to the Caribbean island of Saint Lucia. When celebrating their anniversary in 2016, Rebekah took to Facebook where she operates a profile with the name Bekah Wilkinson Eovaldi to gush about her “handsome man”. She then noted that she could not believe five whole years had gone by. She also noted that they’ve grown up and learned so much together along the way.
Nathan and Rebekah Eovaldi Are Parents To Two Children
Nathan and Rebekah became first-time parents in 2014. In June of that year, the couple welcomed a son they named Jace. The trio remained together as a happy family until they added another child in 2019. In October of 2018, just as the Red Sox and her husband had become Word Series champions, Rebekah announced on her Facebook page that she was expecting. A few months later, in January 2019, they had a daughter they named Adeline.
The Family Have A Home In Houston But Have Lived Across America Due To Nathan’s Career
Nathan and Rebekah Eovaldi maintain a home in Houston, Texas. For obvious reasons, the pair chose to remain close to their hometown. This way, they are not far away from family members and their kids can get to see their grandparents often.
However, while the Eovaldi family primarily resides in Houston, they have lived in different cities across the USA as a result of Nathan’s career. Nathan began his career in Los Angeles playing for the Dodgers. he spent two years with the team. Following his time on the West Coast, he moved to Florida to play for the Marlins in Miami. He spent another two years with the team before moving to New York on the East Coast in 2015 to play for the Yankees. His next team after his injury-riddled time in the Big Apple was the Rays in Tampa Bay, Florida. After a year, he joined the Boston Red Sox, the team where he has spent the most time in his career and has gotten to enjoy the most success.
As Nathan has gotten to move around, so has Rebekah and the kids. The athlete certainly needs that support system in order to be greater in his career.
