The sports world will be eternally grateful for him. Michael Oher was born on May 28, 1986 in Memphis, Tennessee. He was an American soccer player, specifically an offensive tackle. Thanks to his professional career and achievements, he has become one of the most well-known figures in this sport discipline. In addition to this, much of his fame is also due to the book 'The Blind Side', which was later made into a movie.
Despite the fact that, on occasions, Michael has even said that this film adaptation ruined his soccer career, the truth is that it also made him gain greater recognition at an international level. However, the American athlete has not been so open when talking about his personal life and there is hardly any information about it. For this reason, from The Look we provide you with this information so you can know who is the woman with whom Michael Oher shares his life.
Who is Michael Oher's wife?
The reality is that the athlete has always tried to keep his private life as private as possible and, for years, it was not even known if he had a partner or not.
Today, we know that he does. Her name is Tiffany Roy, who has been his girlfriend for many years. Their love for each other has led them to form their own family, which consists of their two sons, Kobi and MJ, and their two daughters, Kierstin and Naivi.
Michael and Tiffany are married
The couple met during their time at the University of Mississippi and both began their relationship 17 years ago, so we can be sure that they have found a love that is practically indestructible.
A few days ago, Michael and Tiffany took a step further in their relationship and got married in a luxurious ceremony. It was held in Nashville, Tennessee, with 200 guests in attendance.
A romantic ceremony
It was Michael himself who broke the news through his Instagram profile, with a publication in which he was very much in love. "My beautiful wife, I love you so much, thank you for blessing me with our family!" wrote the athlete.
For his part, Roy told 'People' that "the most magical part was our vows. Hearing Mike express his feelings in front of 200+ people was amazing and romantic, I felt like a true queen."
'The Blind Side'
One of the most well-known references to his professional and personal career is the movie 'The Blind Side'. It stars actor Quinton Aaron, who gives life to the character of Oher. In 2009, this was the adaptation of a book with the same name, whose author is Michael Lewis.
In it, the inspiring story of a homeless teenager who ended up becoming an NFL player is told, although Michael himself has once said that he was not happy with the inaccurate portrayal of his life.
In fact, he has even gone so far as to claim that the image of him as a person with very little knowledge about soccer has had a negative impact on his professional career as a result.
