Philip Rivers’ children are known for being so many that in November 2019, the bookies were offering odds on his future.
Would he retire from NFL, or have another baby first?
Although Rivers retired in January after playing for the Colts last year and is currently a coach at St. Michael Catholic High School, the 39-year-old recently told the Los Angeles Times that he hasn’t ruled out a return to the NFL just quite yet.
But has he ruled out having any more kids? He has never put a number on how many he and his wife Tiffany want and has no plans to stop just yet…
Philip Rivers’ Children
Philip Rivers has nine kids.
That’s seven girls and two boys, ranging in ages from 2 to 19 years.
It’s incredible that between playing, training, and commuting from San Diego to LA all those years before the move, he still had time to spend with his kids:
- Halle (19)
- Caroline (16)
- Grace (15)
- Gunner (13)
- Sarah (11)
- Peter (10)
- Rebecca (7)
- Clare (5)
- Anna (2)
Both Philip and his wife, Tiffany, are devout Catholics; the church and their faith having only deepened their bond.
And it’s their refusal to use contraception, opting instead to use the Natural Family Planning technique that probably has a lot to do with their large family.
Here’s the NFL quarterback talking openly about it here:
The most recent addition to their family is little Anna, born in March 2019. As the ninth little one of their crew, there were jokes on Twitter that Rivers is trying to build up his own family offense.
Only two short at the moment – and Rivers revealed there are no plans to stop just yet!
How Philip Rivers Met Tiffany Goodwin
With an ever-growing family of beautiful kids we’re all dying to know how Philip Rivers met his beloved wife, Tiffany!
It’s a classic childhood sweetheart kinda story.
They started dating in middle school and ended up marrying whilst at college at NC State.
Philip was just 19 years old, and Tiffany converted to his faith, Catholicism, the night before their big day.
True love or what?
The Future Is Bright
Clearly having loads of kids doesn’t get in the way of the 39-year-old’s performance on the pitch, as he may return to the NFL in the future.
For now though, we bet Philip Rivers’ kids are stoked to have him home all the time for family fun…
