McVay’s age

McVay was born on Jan. 24, 1986, in Dayton, Ohio, to parents Tim and Cindy McVay.

McVay was 30, a month shy of his 31st birthday when he got the Rams heading coaching job. The second-youngest NFL head coach ever hired was Lane Kiffin, who took a job with the Raiders when he was 31. McVay then went on to win Super Bowl LVI when he was 36 and 20 days old. Tomlin was six weeks shy of his 37th birthday when Pittsburgh defeated Arizona in Super Bowl XLIII.

After McVay won the big game, Khomyn took to Instagram writing: “I’ve watched this guy grind nonstop. Day in and day out. No breaks. He always puts everyone else first, and winning this Lombardi trophy for his team, his family, his friends… is a dream come true!!! I love you babe, you deserve this times a million. Victory tastes pretty damn good!”

McVay is older than his wife. But how much older?

Khomyn’s age

Khomyn was born in Kyiv, Ukraine on March 1, 1990, making her four years younger than her husband.

She began modeling when she was 18 and appeared in Ukrainian commercials. Khomyn then moved to the U.S. and studied fashion design at George Mason University in Virginia.

In the months following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Khomyn has been voicing support for her native country.

“I proudly stand with my fellow Ukrainians and I admire their strength. They have faced unimaginable adversity with such profound grace and bravery, their fight and the way they have united the world is truly inspiring,” Khomyn said during an appearance at the Critics Choice Awards. “There is no place in our world for this kind of violence and our prayers go out to all the lives that have been lost.”
