It’s been a wild ride for Lauren Tannehill.
The 25-year-old blond beauty married Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill in January, before the Texas A&M hunk was snapped up by the Fins in the first round of the NFL draft in April. SoFla football fans officially met her when she stepped onto the podium with her now-famous husband, #17 jersey in hand. Much Googling – and oggling -- ensued.
We got to know the couple, mainly her, on “Hard Knocks,” HBO’s training-camp reality show.
On Thursday, the green-eyed beauty with a Texas lilt will meet and greet South Florida shoppers at 6 p.m. at Sawgrass Mills Fashion So Sweet event in Sunrise to dedicate the new Fashion Row expansion at the mall. The 140,000-square-foot wing, anchored by a massively expanded Calvin Klein outlet, has a Steve Madden shoe store, DKNY Company Store and a Maxstudio.com outlet, among other retailers.
We caught up with Tannehill and asked her what it’s like to live the good life in South Florida and if there are any plans for little quarterbacks in the works.
