While the Rams wide receiver may be the son of a former NFL quarterback, he’s been very open about how Anna has been the person by his side who has helped his career the most. Here’s what I found about the sweet, self-described “football wifey.”
They’ve been together forever. No really.
Cooper Kupp and Anna Croskrey met in high school. Though they originally went to separate colleges, she eventually transferred from the University of Arkansas to be at Eastern Washington University with him. The two were engaged and married before they even graduated. Look at these babies.
They have two kids and one Kupp pup.
See: Two adorable blonde kiddos, Cooper Jr. and Cypress.
And then there’s Eloise (a.k.a. Lolo) the dog…
They are devout Christians.
Both Anna and Cooper are committed to their Christian faith. When her husband’s team won the NFC Championships, Anna posted: “This moment. These moments!!! Thanking God for every one of them. We have prayed for a season to glorify our Savior Jesus Christ and you are doing just that my lovey @cooperkupp. SURREAL!!”
Anna is crucial to Cooper’s success.
In a Sports Illustrated piece about Cooper’s draft prospects, the writer noted, “While others often asked him if it was hard to be married while still in college, Kupp would say he would not have been able to do it without her.” Anna told ESPN, “I supported us monetarily through college…I was working full time so that he didn’t have to worry about that, so that he could focus.” Agreed Cooper in the same piece: “Not only would I not be here where I am today without her or accomplishing the things that I would be doing…I may not be in the NFL if it wasn’t for her and what she has inspired in me and pushed me to do.”
And look how their hard work has paid off. Cooper posted a video of his wife seemingly emotional about the outcome of a game and wrote, “This is LOVE! Win together, lose together. Can’t put words to how thankful I am for you, @annamariekupp. You are as much a part of this as anyone!! Behind every good man is a great woman.. you lift up, heal, and inspire when I am down, hurting, and discouraged.”
She’s athletic, too.
OK, Anna, we see you flexing.
If the Rams win the Vince Lombardi, will that make Cooper a trophy husband? Much to consider.
