This article was last updated by on

Dominic Raiola, a former NFL player, is barely off the limelight- from career achievements to personal life drama. The retired Detriot Lions center is married & shares three kids with his wife, Yvonne Raiola.

Having a son as a top prospect in football is a proud moment for any father, and so is for Raiola.

The American football star’s son Dylan Raiola, considered a consensus five-star quarterback, committed to Georgia Bulldogs on May 15, 2023.

It has been home to NFL players like Jalen Carter, Jordan Davis, & Christopher Smith, among others.

No wonder fans are already imagining Dylan in the NFL grounds like his father, who had his entire 14 NFL seasons with the Lions.

However, those achievements & cheerful moments won’t make Dominic immune to backlashes.

In late 2012, there were reports of the now-retired NFL player’s extra-marital affair; reportedly, he failed to pay child support to a woman with whom he had a son.

Moreover, it was reported that he & his baby mama had welcomed a son only a few months before when his wife Yvonne welcomed their third child.

Let’s get further into his personal life!
