Moreover, the pair is very close to each other. Matt’s wife reportedly supports him both on and off the field.

Mathew John Breda participated in Georgia Southern’s collegiate football program before signing a free-agent contract with the San Francisco 49ers in 2017.

Breida started the 2017 campaign as Carlos Hyde’s backup in the 49ers’ backfield.

He had four rushes for 11 yards on September 10, 2017, in his NFL debut, during the season-opening 23-3 home loss to the Carolina Panthers.

Additionally, Matt began the 2018 season as a backup to Morris. He started for the first time in his career in Week 2 against the Detroit Lions.

Breida and newly signed free agent Tevin Coleman started the 2019 season as a co-starting pair because of the ongoing difficulties with McKinnon’s recuperation.

Later, the two-time First-team All-Sun Belt awardee joined the Dolphins in April 2020, only to sign a one-year contract with the Bills in March 2021. Currently, the NFL star plays for the New York Giants as a running back.

Silvana Breida (Birth name: Silvana Paonessa) is the stunning wife of the NFL running back Breida.

One of the children born to Angela and Frank Paonessa, Silvana Maria Paonessa, was born on February 2, 1994, in Brooksville, Florida. Dominic, a brother, and Santina, a sister, are Mrs. Breida’s siblings.

Like her husband, Silvana is also a sports enthusiast and has shared the field with her husband in the early days.

In 2011, Matt and Silvana Breida competed on their school’s varsity team.

The setup was Silvana kicked the extra points after Matt ran the ball into the end zone.

For instance, she scored in all six of her attempts in a 42-0 victory in their opening game.
Matt ended the campaign as the team’s top scorer. Silvana ranked second.

However, the celebrity wife maintains a low profile, keeping herself out of the media limelight. Matt, too, is very professional on his Instagram handle and does not post much on his family.

Silvana Breida and Matt Breida have been happily cohabitating for a while.

The high school sweethearts tied the knot in April 2018 at the Don Cesar Hotel in St. Pete, Florida.

The couple played high school sports together. However, Breida’s professional life after marriage is still a mystery.

Matt would score a touchdown and as he’d be coming off the field I’d run out to kick the extra point,” Silvana sometimes recalls the early days. “And we were dating throughout high school. Now it’s funny that we’re in this position.”

She was not only Nature Coast High’s kicker in 2011, but she also made history by becoming the first female football player in Hernando County.

Moreover, Silvana is a caring spouse who has always stood by her husband on and off the field. They frequently enjoy spending a lot of time together and traveling together.

However, the lovebirds have not shared any news regarding the kids. The couple is said to have no children.
