How Old Are Philip Rivers’ 8 Children and What Are Their Names?
Los Angeles Chargers signal caller Philip Rivers and his wife, Tiffany, have quite a few children — eight to be exact, and one on the way. While Rivers is a star NFL quarterback with so many fans in Southern California to his biggest fans, he’s just dad.
Here’s more about the Rivers family including the names and ages of all his kiddos and why he chose not to move them to L.A.
How Philip Rivers met Tiffany Goodwin
Rivers and Tiffany Goodwin actually knew each other since middle school and started dating in the 7th grade. They decided to get married during Rivers’ first year in college at North Carolina State University. At the time he was 19.
Rivers is a devout Catholic and Tiffany converted to Catholicism before they walked down the aisle in 2001. She got gave birth to their first child the following year and today they are expecting baby No. 9.
Rivers told Celebrate Life Magazine that Tiffany “loves being a mom. Our family and our marriage are built on our faith–raising our kids in the faith and seeing them grow. We’re very close-knit. We’re homeschooling … Staying true to the teachings of the Church, from the no-contraception standpoint, has really been the biggest blessing in our marriage.”
Names and ages of his children
The Rivers’ ninth child is due in March 2019. They currently have six daughters and two sons.
Their oldest, Halle, was born in 2002. Three years later, the couple welcomed their second daughter, Caroline. Tiffany then gave birth to Grace, who is now 12, followed by the pair’s first son, Gunner, who is 10 years old. In 2010, they had another daughter named Sarah and the following year welcomed their second son, Peter. Rebecca was born in 2013 and their youngest daughter, Clare, came along in 2015.
Prior to the birth of Clare, Rivers spoke about having so many children.
Why the family still lives on San Diego
After the Chargers moved from San Diego to Los Angeles in 2017, Rivers and Tiffany looked at several schools in the L.A. and Orange Country area but ultimately decided it was best not to pack up their entire family and move. Today, they still live in San Diego because according to the quarterback, nowhere else felt like home to them.
“Every time we started driving back home. It was like, ‘Gosh!’ We had the feeling of ‘Ohhhh,'” Rivers recalled to The San Diego Tribune. “You look around (when house hunting) and you kind of get excited. You know, ‘That’s a neat neighborhood.’ Then we’d be driving home and we’d get to about Carlsbad and say, ‘Gosh! I feel like we’re going home.’ It just felt that way.”
When he has to get to work, Rivers commutes about 80 miles each way but does it in a $200,000 luxury SUV. He also employed a driver so instead of having to watch the road the entire time he can study film.
