Who is Saquon Barkley’s Girlfriend, Anna Congdon?
New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley made quite an impact on the field during his rookie season. The former Penn State star was drafted as the second overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and is now giving defenses fits on how to stop him. However, there is one person in his life that Barkley has said can slow him down and that is his girlfriend and the mother of his child, Anna Congdon.
Here’s more on the woman who stole his heart and the couple’s adorable baby girl.
How long Barkley and Congdon have been together
Congdon was born in 1998 in Forest City, Pennsylvania, to Daniel and Kathleen Congdon. She has one younger brother, who is a motorcycle rider for the Monster Energy Kawasaki MX2 Racing Team, and one older sister.
Like Barkley and her younger sibling, Congdon is an athlete herself as she played on the basketball team at Forest City High School. After graduation, she enrolled in Penn State University where Barkley majored in journalism.
The couple has been dating since early 2017 and although they don’t speak too much about their relationship publicly, they aren’t shy about sending love to one another via social media.

They welcomed their daughter in 2018
On April 24, 2018, Congdon and Barkley welcomed their daughter, Jada Claire, into the world. She was born just two days prior to the NFL draft and Barkley was there to witness her birth.
He posted about her arrival via Instagram writing, “Words can’t even describe how I feel right now. You are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen in my life. Thank God for blessing me with you in my life and into my arms. I pray that I can be the best father to you and help you grow into an amazing woman. I love you so so so much #DaddysLittleGirl Jada Clare Barkley 4.24.18 ❤️.”
Since then little Jada has made plenty of appearances on social media with her parents and even attended some of her dad’s football games.
Congdon is the one person that can slow him down
While NFL defenses around the league look for ways to stop the Giants running back they may want some advice from Congdon because Barkley admitted that she is the person who can slow him down.
Barkley even posted a little about that on Congdon’s birthday.
“She was the one to slow me down, hold me down, I roll with it now!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABE,” the athlete wrote on Instagram.
She has over 105k followers on Instagram
Congdon is sort of a social media star. Even though she doesn’t post a ton on her accounts she still has over 105,000 followers on Instagram and another 5,500 more on Twitter. That’s because when she does post people are eager to see what cute photo she shares of Jada or what wonderful things she says about her man.
