The funny journey of the athlete reproduction process usually pegs the unborn offspring to automatically be physically gifted and mentally driven. Athletes tend to attract and gravitate towards beautiful people creating the perfect Upon birth, you watch them slowly grow up either realizing they will take their parents place, or draw attention to themselves in other ways, like their looks. To have it all generally lands you in the category of icon status, but usually, one or the other will do. It's undeniable that the support systems of athletes is often overlooked, unless of course there is a daughter on the sidelines that happens to be outshining their superstar parent.
Good genes is often the case with these girls, but who is to say good docs weren’t involved in a little bit of the enhancement process? When athletes combine with other athletes, supermodels, actresses and more, the results to the basic math equation are devastating. As a result, they put their good looks and last names to use, seeking out the spotlight from screen time to modeling, and even the newly developed world of viral social media modeling.
From all around the world, here are the Top 20 Hottest Daughters of Former Athletes.
20 Deepika Padukone - Prakash Padukone
Deepika Padukone is an Indian film actress who is not only the highest paid but cited as the nation's most popular and attractive personality. She has received several awards for her work. As a teenager, however, she wasn’t always your favorite Bollywood actress as she followed in her father, Prakash Pukadone’s, athletic footsteps mirroring him in playing badminton at national level championships, as he was a player of international repute. She used to wake up at five in the morning to go for physical training before heading off to school to come home and play badminton, then wake up and do it all again the next day.
19 Nicki Meyer - Urban Meyer
18 Alexandria Schlereth - Mark Schlereth
Alexandria Schlereth is the daughter of three-time champion and NFL guard Mark, who can now be found sitting on the panels on ESPN. Born in Alaska, but raised in Colorado, the brunette beauty is now currently living in Los Angeles pursuing her acting and modeling career. After having a childhood of being bounced around the map she went in the opposite direction of sports because she wasn’t sure if she ever really liked playing them (we would have watched her anyway).
17 Cassie Trammell - Judy Trammell
Cassie Trammel is the daughter of former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader and current head choreographer for the squad, Judy Trammel. Judy is also known as she appears on the CMT reality series Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team. Of the three kids, Cassie chose to follow in her mama’s footsteps cheering for eight years with Cheer Athletics winning a national title, as well as two gold medals at the All-star Cheerleading World Championships. She later cheered on the Cowboys squad from 2008-2013 as the leader. Cassie’s success has been a long time coming as she started at the age of three and worked her way up to cheerleading success.
16 Gina Carano - Glenn Carano
Gina Carano is an actress, television personality, fitness model, and former mixed martial artist. Her father, Glenn Carano, was a quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys for seven seasons after he attended and played at the University of Nevada. During her MMA career she competed in Strikeforce and EliteXC where her popularity began to warrant her the title of the “face of women’s MMA” back in 2008. Her record in the ring was 12-1-1 in Muay Thai and 7-1 in MMA, so remind the next guy you see not to get on her bad side.
15 Jordin Sparks - Phillippi Sparks
Jordin Sparks is pretty much a household name as she rose to fame and found a place in your heart when she won the sixth season of American Idol at just 17 years old back in 2007, aka the youngest winner ever. Her first album released that year went platinum (duh), and she has been listed on VH1’s “100 Greatest Women in Music” list. Before Jordin, her last name was probably already one you knew as her dad was drafted by the New York Giants out of Arizona State University where he played cornerback opposite Jason Sehorn for six years, becoming a talented tandem.
14 Brittny Gastineau - Mark Gastineau
Brittny Gastineau is a model, socialite, and reality TV star. Born and raised in New York, she is the daughter of former Jets defensive end Mark Gastineau. During her modeling peak she had an endorsement deal with L’Oreal Paris, at the same time posing as the face of used-to-be-hot brand Ed Hardy. She still lands a few magazine layouts every now and then, but is best known for appearing on shows like Keeping Up with the Kardashians and The Hills. She landed a deal back in 2004 and began development on E! Network for production on The Gastineau Girls, which to must dismay lasted only two seasons.
13 Kate Mara - Timothy Mara
Kate Mara, aka Rooney, is another New York-born and raised beauty, and daughter to NFL scout and vice president of the New York Giants player evaluation, Timothy Mara. Her mother’s side of the family has held ownership in the Pittsburgh Steelers football team since 1933, and her father's side has had ownership with the Giants since 1925. So it’s pretty safe to say football runs in the Mara veins. She has sung at both teams games and even has it stated in her working contract that she can't attend if either team goes to the Super Bowl.
12 Bianca La Russa - Tony La Russa
11 Bianca Gascoigne - Paul Gascoigne
Bianca Gascoigne is a British glamour model and television personality. Her stepfather is Paul Gascoigne, a former England international footballer and football manager (football as in soccer). You might know him better by his nickname Gazza, or for the fact he has been named “the most naturally gifted English midfielder of his generation”.
10 Rachel Bradshaw - Terry Bradshaw
9 Deiondra Sanders - Deion Sanders
8 Elizabeth Montana - Joe Montana
Joe Montana is known for his one of a kind comeback gene with 31 fourth quarter come-from-behind wins and four Super Bowls to his name. In addition it has been made clear that there should be other things to be proud of, such as his daughter Elizabeth. Back in 2005, she tried to break into the world of modeling because of her obvious good looks, but that didn’t exactly pan out for the blonde haired brown eyed beauty and we can't figure out why.
7 Angela Rypien - Mark Rypien
Angela Sue Rypien is a quarterback in the Legends Football League, so you may have seen her every now and then. The Baltimore Sun called her the most prominent player in the league and we think she has her daddy to thank for that. Mark Rypien is kind of a legend himself as he is the only Canadian chosen as a Super Bowl MVP when his team the Washington Redskins won many moons ago.
6 Jasmyn Wilkins - Gerald Wilkins
Jasmyn “Jazz” Wilkins was born in Tennessee to a father who lived a busy NBA career. Throughout her childhood they hopped from state to state as her dad, Gerald Wilkins, played on teams ranging from the Vancouver Grizzlies, to the New York Knicks. Not to mention her brother is in the NBA too, Damien Wilkins, clearly suggesting a long line of basketball royalty. When it was finally time to settle down after her father's retirement she graduated high school and went on to attend Clemson University, and is now at Georgia State majoring in nursing.
5 Nastia Liukin - Valeri Liukin
Nastia Liukin made herself a household name back in 2008 as a member of the American Olympic gymnastics team alongside her good friend and roommate, Shawn Johnson. She is the 2008 individual all-around champion, and the 2005 and 2007 world champion on the balance beam putting most of the population to shame who can't even walk in a straight line on the floor. The list could honestly keep going as she is also a four-time all around US national champion and has nine world champion medals, okay deep breath now.
4 The Larionov Sisters - Igor Larionov
3 Alexa Flutie - Doug Flutie
2 Kendall and Kylie Jenner - Caitlyn Jenner
A little bit of a confusing one but daughters of an athlete nonetheless. Kendall and Kylie Jenner are the daughters of Bruce Jenner, a retired Olympic gold-medal winning decathlete, now known as Caitlyn. Basically born and raised in the spotlight these sisters have made their mark on the world in their own ways. Kylie is slowly (or should I say quickly) building an empire on Lip Kits and cosmetics, while Kendall is parading down all the runways from Paris to New York, including a recent honor of being the cover girl for the September issue of Vogue.
1 Paulina Gretzky - Wayne Gretzky
Finally, here we are at number one and I’m sure not much of a surprise to you. Paulina Gretzky is the eldest child of hockey legend Wayne “The Great One” Gretzky, who played in the NHL for twenty seasons. Paulina is a model, singer and celebutante. She made her modeling debut on the cover of Flare magazine in 2005, which her model mom, Janet, also graced the cover of in her day, and has had cameo’s in movies such as Grown Ups 2.
She is currently the fiancée to golfing pro Dustin Johnson, posing on the cover of Golf Digest to mark the occasion, and the two already have a son together so I guess this officially makes her MILF material. She is known for her social media presence and the photos she posts on her Instagram page.
