Brittany Favre – Biography
Brittany Favre was born on February 6, 1989, in Mississippi, United States. Her parents, Deanna and Brett Lorenzo Favre, raised her in their hometown, Hattiesburg in Mississippi. Brittany has a sister and only sibling, Breleigh Favre who is ten years younger. Breleigh, who currently plays volleyball, was born in 1999, three years after her parent’s marriage in 1996.
At the time of Brittany’s birth, her dad was aged just 19, and was still in his career beginnings and had not yet married her mother who was 20 years old then. Her mum on her own part later established the Deanne Favre Foundation as a means of giving back to the society after surviving breast cancer in 2004. She has also authored two books: Don’t Bet Against Me and The Cure of the Chronic Life.
Despite being born into an environment surrounded by sports, Brittany Favre harboured the dream of becoming a lawyer right from childhood. Instead of looking up to her dad, a successful athlete, Britt rather admired fulfilled lawyers while growing up. She deliberately wanted to build a career that is distinctively different from her dad’s. She, however, couldn’t succeed in completely escaping her father’s line of career, as she later chose to specialize in Sports and Entertainment in her law career. This is simply because, she has got sports on her fingertips, having been exposed to the business from the cradle.
Prior to her tertiary education at the Loyola University College of Law, Brittany married a man identified by some sources as Patrick Valkenburg. She soon became pregnant for him but unfortunately, they divorced the winter before she entered college. The divorce proceeding was a long one as it took almost one and a half years to conclude.
Brittany consequently became a single mother in her first year after she gave birth to her son named Parker Brett on April 2nd, 2010. The experience undoubtedly distracted her from her studies but on the other hand, it changed her perspective to life as Parker motivated her to become serious with pursuing a career and building her life to become a confident and successful mother.
Not long after her separation from her former husband, Brittany Favre met a new man, Alex Mallion with whom she started a fresh relationship. Britt once revealed that it was Alex who saved her from quitting college after her first year. Alex encouraged her a lot and made her see reasons to keep her head up. The two got married in her second year – in 2011. Brittany soon became pregnant with her second son – her first with Alex. The boy whom they named A.J arrived in her third year in college.
Brittany Favre finally finished from the Loyola University College of Law in May, 2015. Many lauded her for such a milestone, having earned her degree alongside raising two little children. On completing her studies, she became attached to a newly established law firm in Hattiesburg.
In addition to her law career, Brittany featured in the documentary television series A Football Life in 2016. She appeared alongside her dad in the sixth season of the football documentary which covered his major achievements.
