Who Exactly Is Brittany Brees – Drew Brees’ Wife?
On the 18th of September in 1976, Kaithe and Pete Dudchenko gave birth to their daughter Brittany Middleton, her birth occurred in Syracuse, Indiana. Brittany had a very normal childhood as can be expected but because she is not the celebrity in her family the details of her life are not accessible or easily known by all. There is not much that is known about her life as a child, what is known is limited to where she was born and the names of her parents.
However, it is known that she attended Purdue University which is where her relationship with the star football player, Drew Brees began. Their first meeting was at a party, both of them had recounted their experiences to ESPN the Magazine. Drew spoke about how the first day they met was plagued by his alcohol-induced boldness. This ruined any chances he had with her; it was not until months later at another party that he was able to talk to her. Brees had found out what party she might be attending, found a way to get into that party and this time asked her out properly.
Brittany only agreed to go on the date on the grounds that her friends came along, as they were interested in knowing the guy who had goofed and ruined his chances the first time. Brees came along with friends of his as well and they all chose to go to the cinema. The couple started to date from that day until they got married in 2003, in the second month of the year.
