The former NFL player and a future Panthers’ Hall Of Honor inductee, Julius Peppers’s yet-to-be wife, is Claudia Sampedro. Despite all the speculations, they haven’t tied the knot.

Julius and Claudia are parents to three beautiful children.

The former defensive and outside linebacker in the NFL, Julius Frazier Peppers, was born on January 18, 1980, in Wilison, North Carolina, U.S.

He played collegiate football for the North Carolina Tar Heels, where he finished his career ranked second all-time in Tar Heels history with 30.5 sacks.

Moreover, during Pepper’s time at Southern Nash HS, he majored in Afro-American studies.

The NFL All-Decade Team (2000s) athlete played for three teams during his professional career, Carolina Panthers, Chicago Bears, and Green Bay Packers.

He started his career with Carolina Panthers, but after 8 years with the Panthers, Chicago Bears signed him on a six-year deal worth $91.5 million. 

Julius was signed by Green Bay Packers in 2014 on a contract worth $30 million.

However, after nearly eight years, the Panthers legend returned for his second spell.

He finished his career as the all-time leader in sacks in Panthers history. 

Eventually, after 17 years of showcasing his greatness in the NFL, Peppers hung his boots on February 1, 2019.

However, the situation regarding their children is a bit tangled.

Claudia already had a daughter, Keena Skye, born in 2009, from her previous relationship.

Likewise, Julius also had a son named Elijah Peppers, who was born to his former girlfriend Lia.

Together, Julius and Claudia have a son, Amaresito, born on September 21, 2015.

Surprisingly in an episode of WAGS Miami, Claudia asked if Julius at least thinks about getting married someday. 

To this, Julius replied, “I think that, um, I don’t feel the pressure to get married at all or engaged, “I like the space that we’re in right now, like where we’re at. I don’t feel like we need to put any extra pressure or any expectations on it when it’s good right now.”
