Chris Spielman’s wife, Carrie Yocom, tied the knot with the special assistant of the Detroit Lions in 2013. Carrie and Chris have six kids between them.
The former NFL player, Chris Spielman, was first married to Stefanie Spielman. The couple was living happy married life before they received the devastating news of Stefanie’s breast cancer diagnosis.
But even after then, the couple led by example, establishing Spielman Fund to help tackle the deadly disease. Two years after his wife’s passing, Chris met Carrie, and the two tied the knot in 2013.
The Ohio State graduate didn’t take much time to blend in with Chris’ family with her two daughters. In 2020, Chris left his commentating job to join Detroit Lions as an executive member.

Chris met his second wife in 2011, two years after the death of his first wife, Stefanie, who fought a long battle with breast cancer. The two tied the knot in 2013 and are parents to six children.

Last year, in 2022, after receiving an email about her mom’s unfinished children’s book, Maddie published the book, fulfilling one of her mom’s dreams.
Stefanie had written the book from the perspective of her daughter, Maddie so that she could encourage and inform children whose mothers have cancer.
