There are several ways to gain popularity, even ones that may not have crossed anybody’s mind. Although Tiffany Rivers like several other women, came to public notice for being the wife of a world-famous footballer, she later gained much more media prominence alongside her husband for her family size. Nine kids for a below-forty couple is not at all too small a feat to make headlines. Phillip Rivers and his wife Tiffany have shunned the prevailing birth control lifestyle to grab the biblical “your children shall surround your table” blessing. And in their own case, it must be a really big table!
Meanwhile, Phillip Rivers is a legendary NFL quarterback, presently playing for the San Diego Chargers. On November 4, 2018, he hit his 200th match milestone.
Tiffany Rivers Bio, Age
Tiffany Rivers was born in Decatur, Alabama, the U.S.A. in 1982. Some sources, however, hold that she is originally from Alaska. Being a private kind of personality, her exact birth date and other background details are not available on the media.
Tiffany grew up in her birthplace, the same town her husband was raised. She met and started dating Phillip Rivers way back in junior high, precisely in 1994 when they were both in their seventh grade. Although Phillip’s family later left Decatur for Athens in Georgia, their relationship continued.
After five long years of dating, Phillip finally popped the big question. By then, he had just completed his freshman year at the North Carolina State University where he played in the college team. The lovebirds later married on the 19th day of May 2001.
At the moment, Tiffany and Phillip have nine children – seven girls and two boys. Isn’t that phenomenal? The couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Halle on 6th July 2002. Another daughter, Caroline followed in 2005. The third child and daughter, Grace arrived a year later. Then in 2008, they had their first son and fourth child, Gunner.
In 2010, the fourth daughter and fifth child arrived. The second son and sixth child, Peter soon followed the next year, 2011. Rebecca, the sixth daughter, and seventh child arrived two years later – 2013. Clare followed in 2015. Then baby number nine and seventh daughter, Anna hit the world on 27th March 2019.
Having married and become a mother at a very young age, Tiffany has apparently not gotten the opportunity to pursue a career. She is primarily focusing on her wifely and motherly responsibilities in their family home in San Diego, California.

The brand name, “Hermosa” means beautiful in Spanish.
