Who Is Eric Kendricks’ Wife, Ally Courtnall?
Eric had no idea that he is about to meet the love of his life at UCLA. It is like everything that happened in his life was for him to lead to that very place.
Kendricks met Courtnall in 2010 when they both were student-athletes at UCLA. While Eric was a football linebacker, Ally represented UCLA in both NCAA women’s soccer and track.
After graduating from UCLA, Eric Kendricks’ other half had a difficult time deciding what was next. She had a little bit of a post-grad “identity crisis” when she discovered modeling.
Courtnall became a model for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue rookies. She later returned to UCLA to counsel current athletes about the opportunities and building their platform.
Eric Kendricks’ spouse talks about how college would earn money from the student-athlete’s pictures and involvements of any sort in calendars and posters while they didn’t receive a single penny.
While teaching them the opportunities that lie ahead in their career, Ally also intended to guide them to a good path.
Eric Kendricks’ wife, Ally, is still modeling and is a model for top modeling agencies like Natural Model Management and Women 360 Management New York.
Marching Towards A Happy New Beginning
The love story of Eric and Ally is one of the books with a happy ending or, shall we say, a happy beginning of even greater things.
Ally and Eric met in 2010, but they didn’t start dating immediately. As it is said that good things take time, they took some time as friends and started dating in 2013.
Eric Kendricks’ life partner remembers all the milestones of their relationship by heart and shared that they moved in together in 2015.
