Meet Kristin Barnes, wife of NFL star Ricky Williams. Kristen met Ricky eight years ago when she worked on the New Orleans Saints’ team plane. Kristen and Ricky have lived together for years. Before getting married to Kristen, Ricky admitted that he had commitment-phobia. The idea of getting married finally hit Ricky when his 3 year-old daughter started asking him questions about her last name. Ricky says, “It’s one thing when friends or family ask you about it.” “But when your daughter starts asking questions, it hits a little close to home.”
On September 4, 2009, Ricky married his long-time girlfriend Kristen Barnes on Dania Beach, near Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Celebrity guests included former NBA star Dennis Rodman and NFL players Ronnie Brown and Chad Henne.
Williams has four children (two daughters, Marley and Asha, and two sons, Prince and Blaze) with three different women.
Currently, Ricky Williams plays for the NFL Miami Dolphins. On May 21, 2009, Ricky was offered a contract extension by the Miami Dolphins for $4.35 million, for the 2010 season.
