"WAG" is an acronym for "wives and girlfriends," and in this article, we'll be talking about the WAGs of NFL players. NFL WAGs get to live the life of the rich and famous all because of whom they're dating or married to. Granted, some of these women had successful careers in the entertainment business before shacking up with their athlete men, but the majority of them got their big breaks by taking advantage of their men's fame. As a result, WAGs are often referred to as "gold diggers" or "jersey chasers" because, for some, it seems that they're only in relationships with their boyfriends or husbands because of the fact that these men are successful and rich.
Dating an NFL player definitely comes with its fair share of perks that make it seem like a glamorous position to be in, but what people don't get to see on social media is the fact that these women are often left by themselves because of their men's busy schedule. Regardless, they, more often than not, have access to their men's wealth and everything that comes with it; meaning cars, mansions, vacations, clothes, and jewelry, so some time apart isn't really that big of a deal for many of these NFL WAGs.
In 2015, E! created a reality show called WAGS, which follows these women around, documenting their lives and all that goes into being in a relationship with a professional athlete. The women are all drop-dead gorgeous and overly dramatic, which makes for perfect reality television. Since then, the wives and girlfriends of these athletes have amassed a huge following on social media and have arguably become more famous than their men.
Check out these 20 NFL WAGS And Their Cars:
20 Gisele Bundchen
Gisele Bundchen was a wildly successful supermodel before she shacked up with New England Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady. In fact, the former fashion model has a bigger net worth than her professional athlete husband, with a staggering $360 million compared to Brady's $180 million. The celebrity couple tied the knot in February of 2009.
Bundchen and Brady have gone on to have two children together, a daughter and a son. Tom also shares a son from his previous relationship with Bridget Moynahan. The famous family lives in a multi-million dollar mansion in Brentwood, California when the pro-baller isn't in season. Gisele enjoys riding around in luxurious vehicles and is known to have an Audi S8, an Audi A8, a BMW X5, and a Rolls-Royce Ghost.
Ciara married the Seattle Seahawks quarterback, Russell Wilson in 2016. They recently welcomed their daughter, Sienna Princess Wilson, this past spring. Ciara is a successful recording artist and performer who was selling out stadium tours and topping the charts before she settled down with Wilson. The singer also has another son, Future Zahir, with her ex, Future.
With a combined net worth of over $104 million, this celebrity couple can certainly afford to spend whatever they want on the cars they drive. Ciara reportedly owns a Bentley Continental V8 GT that's valued at a whopping $196,000, as well as a pricey Lamborghini Gallardo that's worth around $198,000. Russell is also said to have an Audi, a Range Rover, a Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG, and a Tesla.

Sasha Dindayal, also known as "Sasha Gates," is currently starring on E!'s WAGs Los Angeles. Her husband, Antonio Gates, is the tight end for the L.A. Chargers. Before she was famous, Sasha worked as a model and a video vixen, appearing in a music video for David Banner. She also has a degree in fashion merchandising. Sasha and Antonio married in 2011, and they share a son and a daughter.
With Antonio's net worth of over $30 million and Sasha's recent rise to reality television stardom, the Gates are pretty much set for life. Sasha and her husband don't mind showing off their expensive rides. Last year, Antonio debuted his new Ferrari 458 Italia in Los Angeles, which cost him around a quarter of a million dollars. Also, back in 2009, Gates bragged about getting a new Rolls-Royce Phantom.
17 Kerry Washington
Kerry Washington is a famous actress known for her lead role in the hit series, Scandal, as well as a number of noteworthy films. In 2013, she married former NFL player, Nnamdi Asomugha. Asomugha played for the Oakland Raiders for 11 years before retiring. Kerry and Nnamdi have two children together and reside in a mansion in Hollywood Hills, California.
Washington has a net worth of over $18 million, while her husband has a reported $55 million. The couple lives an extremely private life outside of the spotlight and is rarely spotted in public together. Despite the millions that he made on the football field, Kerry's husband is surprisingly frugal and has been driving the same car for two decades, so you won’t catch him in any shiny sports cars.
16 October Gonzalez
October Gonzalez may have taken the former NFL tight end's last name, but she and Tony Gonzalez aren't even officially married. The couple refers to each other as husband and wife but never made their relationship legal, celebrating their love with a commitment ceremony in 2007. Gonzalez had a successful 17 seasons with the National Football League and currently serves as an analyst on the Fox NFL pregame show.
Tony has amassed a net worth of around $30 million, and although the money might not be legally hers, October has no problem spending it like it is. The couple share two children together, as well as a son from one of Tony's previous relationships. The two aren't extremely open about their personal lives, but October, who goes by "Tobie" for short, posts updates frequently to her Instagram account where she has almost 30,000 followers.
15 Kendra Wilkinson
Kendra Wilkinson made a name for herself as one of Hugh Hefner's young, blonde girlfriends on the reality series, Girls Next Door. After she parted ways with the elderly Playboy founder, she found love with the NFL wide receiver, Hank Baskett. Baskett has played for the Minnesota Vikings, the Philadelphia Eagles, and the Indianapolis Colts.
Baskett has a net worth of around $6.5 million, while Kendra has just over $6 million to claim for herself. The couple is apparently known for spending their money as fast as they get it. In 2013, Kendra was involved in a car crash with her Audi. She's mostly known for driving around in her white GMC Yukon but recently upgraded to a black Range Rover. The football player is also known to have a Jeep Wrangler.

The professional athlete has played for the Indianapolis Colts, the Oakland Raiders, the Miami Dolphins, the San Francisco 49ers, the Atlanta Falcons, and the Arizona Cardinals. Ashley and Phillip have been together since 2009, and they share a son together.
Ashley is certainly not shy about showing off her expensive belongings and is frequently seen on social media posing in front of her luxurious vehicles, like her G-Wagon. She'd better hope that her new husband signs to another team soon because she certainly seems to enjoy his multi-million dollar salary, although, now that she's starring on a reality show, she has some income of her own coming in.
13 Kristin Cavallari
Kristin Cavallari was a famous reality star when she was in high school. She was featured in the hit MTV series "Laguna Beach" and went on to become a fashion designer and actress with a very active social-media following.

Sampedro and Peppers have been in a relationship since 2014, and although they aren't married, they basically seem like it. They share one child together, and they both have children from previous relationships, so their families are merged, and they all live under one roof.
Claudia began gaining notoriety when she joined the cast of WAGS Miami in 2016; however, Peppers has expressed his desire to remain out of the spotlight and doesn't seem to wish for the same fame that his partner does. Sampedro has an outstanding one million followers on Instagram and loves being the center of attention.
11 Dominique Penn
Dominique Penn has been married to the offensive tackle for the Oakland Raiders, Donald Penn, since 2012. She, along with her professional athlete hubby, is currently being featured on E!'s WAGS LA. Donald and Dominique share three children, and family comes first for this famous couple, although they've been reported to have had some rough patches in their relationship over the years with alleged cheating scandals.
Donald recently signed a 2-year contract with the Raiders for $21 million, so the Penn family is living lavishly, to say the least. Dominique frequently shows off her expensive goods on social media, one evening even posing with her Bentley while she was all dressed up. Donald has quite the car collection, including a Ferrari, a Mercedes Maybach, and a Mercedes-Benz AMG GLE 43.
10 Jessica Simpson
Jessica Simpson's first marriage to the boy band singer Nick Lachey didn't work out as she had hoped.

They share a son and a daughter, who are featured frequently on Jessica's Instagram, which has a following of over four million.
Simpson has created an empire of her own over the years, selling clothes, shoes, handbags, and beauty products over the years, so she has a net worth of around $150 million. The 37-year-old is known to have a Bentley Continental GTC Mulliner, a Cadillac Escalade, and a Range Rover.
9 Faven Liuget
Faven joined the cast of WAGS Miami in 2017 for its second season. She's married to the defensive tackle for the Los Angeles Chargers, Corey Liuget. Faven moved to San Diego from Ethiopia when she was five, and coming from such a poor country is probably one of the reasons why she takes full advantage of the opportunities that have come her way. Faven and her football-playing husband had a huge wedding with over 700 guests and lasted three days.
Faven isn't just a housewife and a mother to their two children; she also owns her own fashion line called "MACEOO." However, she doesn't need to work if she doesn't want to. Corey has a net worth of over $26 million and an annual income of over $10 million. The professional athlete is known to have a Karma Revero, a Hennessey VR1200, and a Nissan GT-R.

Sanya's net worth is over $1 million, while her husband's is around $4 million. The athletic couple also earned some income from their reality television show, Sanya's Glam & Gold.

She got her start on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" where she was known for wearing blonde wigs and dating a sugar daddy. When she met Kroy Biermann, the two immediately hit it off, and by 2011, they were married and popping out babies. They've had four children together, and Kroy has adopted Kim's two older daughters from a previous relationship.
The entire Biermann bunch star in their own reality show on Bravo, "Don't Be Tardy," and while they have a combined net worth of around $7 million, the celebrity couple apparently spends more money than they can keep track of. Kim and Kroy have a number of vehicles, including a black matte G-Wagon, a black Porsche Panamera Turbo, and a white Range Rover.

English has a net worth of around $3 million, and his new bride undoubtedly earns some income from modeling and starring on reality television, although her exact net worth is unknown.
