As much as we would like to believe, the lives of athletes are not as easy as most folks would like to imagine. First, you have to deal with the immense amount of pressure that playing a professional sport puts on your shoulders. It doesn’t matter if you are playing in the NBA finals or if you’re playing third division soccer in Japan, there is a certain amount of pressure that any professional athlete feels. If that was not enough, these days professional athletes also have to worry about their lives outside of the court or the pitch or the rink. What we mean by that is that they’re not only in the spotlight when they’re playing their sport, but they are also the center of attention anywhere they go. And this has reached a level further as athlete’s families are more involved in the world of sports. Just take Tom Brady’s wife, Gisele Bundchen and how much her comments after games are scrutinized by fans and even the media. Back in the early days of football nobody would even care that she said anything.
To go along with that, with the advent of the Internet we have compiled lists and lists of beautiful wives and girlfriends of professional athletes just for the sake of doing it. But here we will take a step further and hope that none of the athletes on this list have a Liam Neeson in Taken side to them; Because here are the 15 hottest daughters in all of sports.
15 Alexa Flutie
Doug Flutie was arguably one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play in the Canadian Football League. Not only that, but he was also a great college quarterback when he played for Boston College back in the early 80s. Flutie won a Heisman Trophy, was a unanimous All-American and even had his number retired by the school. In the CFL, he was a three-time Grey Cup champion and was the MVP each time. Flutie was also the CFL’s most outstanding player on six separate occasions. His NFL numbers were not as great as his numbers in Canada, but he still managed to make it to one Pro Bowl. His daughter, Alexa, is a former New England Patriots cheerleader and a cheerleader for the San Diego Chargers. And you better believe it that she’s got game.
14 Elisa Johnson
When you're the daughter of Magic Johnson and you spend your life growing up in Los Angeles, the spotlight is going to be on you quite often. Fortunately, Elisa Johnson seems to enjoy the spotlight, as she's quite active on social media. That would be evidenced by her 300K plus Instagram followers. Elisa is into fashion, as she has attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York like her older brother E.J. She recently made waves on TMZ when she was seen on the beach in Miami with her on-off again boyfriend Anthony Alcaraz. Her brother E.J. has made it clear in the past that he's not fond of Elisa's boyfriend, so we'll have to see how that all goes.
13 Abby Hornacek
Abby Hornacek is the daughter of current Knicks coach and former basketball player Jeff Hornacek. Hornacek hasn't had much success as Knicks coach primarily because Knicks president Phil Jackson has insisted on running the triangle offense in New York even though it is not effective in today's NBA.
Back to Abby though, she is a graduate of USC and is a host for 120 Sports' The Rally. As her father tries to coach the Knicks to relevance, Abby will be looking to grow her broadcasting career and she should have a bright future ahead of her in the industry. She has said she doesn't mind the extra attention she gets for being the daughter of an NBA coach: “I definitely noticed [the attention],” the 22-year-old told The New York Post. “I won’t say I didn’t, but I am blessed to be in the same conversation as my dad. I was very flattered.”
12 Callie Rivers
Have you ever feared to be the guy to talk to a girl and really like her just to find out she is your boss’s daughter? Well, this might have happened to a few NBA players who play in LA, because, believe it or not, Doc Rivers’s daughter is as beautiful as they come. This comes as sort of a surprise since we get to see her father and brother on the court for the Clippers during half of the year, and they don’t exactly get much attention for their looks.
Either way, Callie seems to have enough looks to make up for the whole family. She is also not shy about showing those looks on Instagram. Moreover, after people found out about Callie, the rumors and gossips around Doc’s daughter dating NBA players just started soaring.
11 Diana Larionov
Already ranking high on our list, is the first NHL daughter to bless this top 15. This is Diana Larionov, daughter of former NHL player Igor Larionov. Now, what do you think the daughter of a former great Russian hockey player would do for a living?
Well, Diana did not look toward sports or seems to have even considered following her father’s footsteps, but instead became a makeup artist. Currently living in L/A/, she appears to spend a lot of her time either at the beach or showing off her talents to her more than 4,700 followers on Instagram.
Meanwhile, her father became a professional wine merchant after he retired from hockey, which seems like a suitable job for a guy who was notorious for always drinking a glass of red wine before he entered the rink.
10 Kate Mara
Okay, this one might come as a surprise to a few people. But the girl who played that nosy reporter in House of Cards is related to both the founder of the New York Giants and the founder of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Yes, Kate Mara has made a name for herself as a successful actress and personality, having played in films like the Fantastic Four, The Martian, and series like American Horror Story as well as House of Cards. If you put them next to each other, she’s probably more recognizable than any of her filthy rich relatives. Still, we cannot leave aside that this is the great-granddaughter of Tim Mara, who founded the New York Giants, and Art Rooney Sr., who founded the Steelers. She sure made a name for herself, but it might be tough detaching from the family name when you’re part of football’s royalty.
9 Kendyl Fuhr
Playing in great teams might sometimes come with a price. It is not such a hefty price as you usually come out with the same amount of rings as the most famous guy on the roster, but some players don’t get the same recognition. That is partly true with hockey Hall of Famer Grant Fuhr.
This legendary goaltender won five Stanley Cups during his career with the Edmonton Oilers. The catch is that even though he was one of the best goaltenders in the game, he sort of had to play in the shadow of the greatest hockey player of all time. Nevertheless, Wayne Gretzky has said on many occasions that his former teammate was the greatest goaltender in NHL history. Not only that, but this guy also has one of the most beautiful daughters in NHL history.
She might not be as famous as some of the other names on this list, but Kendyl Fuhr sure is a beauty to rival any other.
8 Laura Stockton
ALL HAIL THE PRINCESS LAURA ?????? pic.twitter.com/ybCaHXB9yR
— Lindsay Stockton (@lstockton11) September 30, 2016
What to do when your father is the greatest point guard in the history of the game of basketball? Should you follow in his footsteps, or should you choose another sport? Both of her brothers chose option number one, and Laura Stockton did not try to run away from the hype either. As it is in the Stockton family, Laura plays basketball for Gonzaga University and is pretty good at her job.
She also made an appearance next to her father during Gonzaga’s championship game matchup this season against North Carolina, and that was enough for the whole world to take notice of her. The tweets, memes and everything else kept appearing as basketball fans from Tokyo to Los Angeles found out how beautiful John Stockton’s daughter was and concluded, as one legendary tweet mentioned: “John Stockton dished out so many dimes that his daughter became one.”
7 Claudia Hierro
Today when people say Real Madrid, the first thing that comes to mind is the face of Cristiano Ronaldo. But a few years ago, when Ronaldo was still not a world-class player, Real Madrid had another player who embodied the Merengue brand. That was Fernando Hierro. This legendary defender is the fifth player in all time appearances with Real Madrid’s uniform with 601.
Now, while the father might be a legendary soccer player, the daughter also has her share of talent. Claudia Hierro is a ballerina, singer and actress. She is one of the most beautiful daughters in soccer and the whole sporting world. Unfortunately for most guys, she is a taken gal as she is dating soccer player Alvaro Vazquez who currently plays for RCD Espanyol.
6 Paulina Gretzky
Some may think it would be tough to make a name for yourself when your father is the greatest hockey player in history. That, however, was no problem for Paulina Gretzky. The 28-year-old from Los Angeles, California became a model and a pop singer. She’s famous in her own right, and while the last name Gretzky sure has to help her achieve things, she has done pretty well on her own. She was ranked number 59 on AskMen’s list of most desirable women and also featured on the cover of Golf Digest.
Part of the reason that she featured on the cover of Golf Digest probably has to do with her husband, professional golfer Dustin Johnson. The couple already has one son, and Paulina is expecting their second heir.
5 Lacey Von Erich
Getting into the wrestling business must be easy for somebody who has such a legendary last name as Von Erich. That was the case with Lacey Von Erich, daughter of The Texas Tornado Kerry Von Erich. Lacey’s family is one of the most famous wrestling families in history. But despite the tremendous legacy she had a duty to fulfill, this gal from Dallas made sure to leave her mark in the wrestling world in her own way. Using both her wrestling skills as well as her beauty, she quickly became a household name and was considered one of the most beautiful wrestlers to ever grace a TNA ring. She might have retired from the sport, but her name will never be forgotten by those who got to witness her TNA Knockouts Tag Team Championship.
4 Crosby Hull
Crosby Hull is one of the newer entries to a list like this, as she's gotten more active on social media since she began attending college in Arizona. She is the daughter of hockey's legendary sniper Brett Hull and we're sure this isn't the last we'll see of her. Not much is known about Crosby yet; all we know is that she's attending college at the University of Arizona and she seems to be quite popular. She often posts pictures of herself at parties or hanging out by the beach. Any young adult will tell you that they love to have fun while they're in college and Hull seems to be fun and outgoing. We can't wait to see what she does after college.
3 Noelle Foley
Here might be the biggest surprise of this list. See that beautiful girl on the picture up there? Now hold on to your seats because you won’t believe that she is the daughter of Mick Foley. Yes, we mean she is the daughter of “Cactus Jack.” You know, the guy with the beard who looked more like he should be on a biker gang than anywhere near a sport. Yeah, that guy is the father of this girl.
Now you might be wondering what Noelle does for a living. Well, she is not a wrestler like her father, but she is training to become one. On top of that, she has a rather successful YouTube channel with more than 31,000 subscribers. She does anything from makeup tutorials to a Baywatch movie Slo-Mo challenge.
2 Carolina Portaluppi
This entry on our list is probably a surprise to you unless you follow Brazilian soccer. And by Brazilian soccer, we don’t mean the Brazilian national team. We actually mean the Brazilian soccer league. If you follow the league, you will most likely agree with this entry. Perhaps even if you don’t follow the league you have already agreed with this entry once you saw that picture up there.
This is Carol Portaluppi, daughter of former Brazilian player and now manager Renato Portaluppi. During his days as a player, Renato was widely recognized as a womanizer who conquered beautiful ladies everywhere he went to play. But how destiny works in funny ways, imagine the reaction of the Brazilian fans when they found out that this guy had one of the most beautiful daughters in sports? Yeah, they did not go easy on him, and she quickly became one of the biggest Internet celebrities in the country. And what makes it even funnier is that Renato might just be one of the most jealous fathers in the world.
1 Avery Schlereth
Now, beware that you have to measure your words when you’re about to talk about the daughter of a 6’3” 287 pound former NFL lineman. But we are not worried because all we have for Mark Schlereth’s daughter are compliments.
A model and TV personality, Avery Schlereth is arguably the most beautiful daughter in all of sports. She has a rather fascinating YouTube channel where she posts a variety of videos talking about her life and giving tips to her more than 1,300 followers.
One might say she is a graceful and better-looking version of her father, who is also a TV personality these days. During his professional football career, this Anchorage, Alaska native was selected to a couple of Pro Bowls and won three Super Bowls, one with the Redskins and two with the Broncos.
