Fans everywhere cheer for their team, hoping for them to bring home a championship. Athletes get all the praise in the world for scoring the winning touchdown, or hitting the final buzzer beater. But there is one things athletes don’t get enough recognition for; their hot daughters. You heard it right. Not all athletes hit a home run when it comes to their families, but the ones in this list sure did. There are models, actresses, TV personalities and even a few athletes themselves.
Many of these women made it to where they are based on their parent’s fame and fortune, but you’ll soon find out that, many of them are self-made. Either way, they are all hotter than the average athlete’s daughter.
But one person you won’t find in this list is Paulina Gretzky. Why, you may ask? Because she is unquestionably gorgeous and we would like the light to shine on some different beauties for once. She's the first sports daughter anyone seems to think of when naming who they feel is the most attractive daughter of a sports legend, so it's time to focus on some others. So, take a seat, and prepare yourself for the top 20 most attractive sports daughters not named Paulina Gretzky.
20 Gina Carano
Gina Carano, son of former Dallas Cowboys backup QB, Glenn Carano, has made a name for herself in the world of MMA. Gina is credited with bringing women’s mixed martial arts to the masses and looking damn fine doing so. In 2009, Corana was name to the Maxim’s Hot 100 list, coming in at No. 16. The same year, she made it to the cover of ESPN the Magazine’s Body Issue.
Currently, Gina is pursuing a career in acting, appearing in blockbusters such as Fast & Furious 6 as a member of the DSS and in Deadpool as the character Angel Dust. But what most people remember Carano for is her grit and determination in the octagon, and the fact that she is hot doesn’t hurt.
19 Chloe Trestman
Marc Trestman, former head coach of the Chicago Bears, is to thank for this beautiful woman. Bears fans haven’t had many things to be excited about since the mid-80s, but Chloe Trestman was one thing they weren’t willing to let go. Several Chicago fans even tweeted out, when Trestman was fired, their wishes that Chloe would stay loyal to them. Unfortunately, the then college student did not oblige.
Chloe also has an older sister, Sarahanne, who only got some of the good Trestman genes. Either way, they are both easy on the eyes, and are put forever on a pedestal by Bears fans (and now fans in Toronto, as Trestman is currently the head coach of the CFL's Toronto Argonauts). But you can’t deny that this graduate of Meredith College down in Raleigh, North Carolina, was the talk of the windy city.
18 Alexa Flutie
The former Patriots and Chargers cheerleader and daughter of former CFL and NFL QB, Doug Flutie, makes our list at No. 18. She just has that girl next door look. The look where you want to take her home to your family, and brag to them that you are dating a former NFL QB’s daughter. Either way, her pictures don’t lie.
Who would have ever thought this 5’7” QB (officially listed at 5’10”) would sire such a fine young woman. Alexa is now a substitute teacher (would I love to be in that high school) and dance instructor. By the way, did I mention she won the Miss Massachusetts pageant in 2010. This girl does it all! Let’s hope we can see more of her in the future.
17 Brittny Gastineau
Brittny Gastineau (Yes, she had to be unique and omit the ‘a’ in Brittany) is the daughter of former New York Jet defensive end, Mark Gastineau. This model/socialite/girl-who-never-had-to-work-a-day-in-her-life is known for appearing as Kim’s best friend on Keeping up with the Kardashians. But Brittny is more than that; she has modeled during NYC's fashion week and appeared on the cover of several magazines.
There is no doubt about it, Brittny is a solid C-lister in Hollywood. She made an appearance in the movie Bruno, and said in regards to Jamie Lynn Spears baby, “abort it.” Brittny has made her way through the talk show circuit as well, including stints on The View and Isaac Mizrahi’s Talk Show. She has even has been rumored to have hooked up with Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps! Good for you Michael, good for you.
16 Laila Ali
Daughter of the late “Greatest of All Time” boxer Muhammad Ali, Laila Ali is a goddess walking among humans. This undefeated (24-0) boxer turns heads everywhere she goes. She has faced criticism though from former boxers such as Anne Wolfe, for dodging title fights. But with a face that pretty, who would want to see her get beat up anyways.
After her boxing career, Laila has been involved with several TV shows and movies, too many to list out. She is an iconic figure, a memory of her father, yet a story of her own. She looks like she could beat you up, then take you out for a nice dinner afterwards. You know what they say, a lady in the streets, but a freak in the ring.
15 Sydney Esiason
One of the former NFL QB and current color commentator, Boomer Esaison's, best achievements was his daughter Sydney. She dates Matt Martin, the depth winger on the Toronto Maple Leafs and formerly of the Islanders. I mean come on, the dude looked like Shrek with a mullet. Sydney, you can do way better than that. I’m still available!
Boomer, a die-hard Rangers fan, wasn’t all too excited at first. But he knew his daughter, also a SI anchor, made the right choice, when he found out Martin is one of the top hitters in the NHL. Known for doling out pain on the ice, Martin is a force to be reckoned with. On second thought, even though you are drop dead gorgeous, Sydney, you can take your former NFL QB dad and hard-hitting boyfriend; I’ll just admire you from afar.
14 Deiondra Sanders
Leave it up to “Prime Time” to add a few extra letters to his own name to come up with his daughter’s name. Rumor has it back in 2014, Deiondra was dating Teddy Riley of Blackstreet’s daughter, Nia Riley. Again, these are just rumors, but I hope to think that I still have a chance with Deiondra.
Currently the former pro-bowler’s daughter appears on the show “Deion’s Family Playbook” which airs on Oprah’s OWN. She also is co-owner of an online shoe boutique “House of Sole” and as her own hair line called “Love Me Extensions.” While Deiondra, may not be able to run a 40 yard dash in under 4.6 seconds, backwards, like her father, she is a successful business women and comes in at No. 14 on our list.
13 Rachel Bradshaw
Former Steelers QB Terry Bradshaw fathered this blonde bombshell, also known as Rachel Bradshaw. Rachel currently is a country singer and has openly admitted that she feels her career has been hampered by Steelers fan’s that only want to talk about her father.
Rachel was married to former Tennessee Titans kicker, Rob Bironas, who died tragically just three months after she married him. His blood alcohol level was .218 and he drove his GMC Denali off the road, to his death. Conflicting reports in Brionas’s death have put Bradshaw on the hot seat, but she was never thought to be part of his untimely demise. She continues to pursue a country music career while her father makes a fool of himself on Fox NFL Sunday.
12 Jordin Sparks
We all know Jordin Sparks, the platinum recording artist and winner of American Idol, but not many people know that she is the daughter of former NFL cornerback Phillippi Sparks. Phillippi played seven years for the New York Giants, recording 27 interceptions, 492 tackles, and one sack. In 2000, he retired as a member of the Dallas Cowboys.
Jordin has paved her own career though, releasing her first studio album in 2006, No Air. It was the highest grossing single ever from a winner of American Idol. She has toured with the likes of Alicia Keys, the Jonas Brothers, and Britney Spears. She has even been nominated for a Grammy. Needless to say, she makes our list of the hottest sports daughters at No. 12.
11 Angela Rypien
The daughter of former Washington Redskins QB Mark Rypien, Angela Rypien followed in her father’s footsteps in the Legends Football League. She played for the Seattle Mist in 2011 and moved to the Baltimore Charm in 2012. In 2013, the Baltimore Sun deemed Rypien the most dominant player in the league. In 2014, she was dating Seattle Mariners player Taijuan Walker. That dominant stare makes all men melt where they stand. Who knew the two-time Superbowl champion could father such a beautiful, fierce daughter.
Before entering the Legend’s Football League, Rypien was a stylist, but currently she lives a quiet life. During her time playing professionally, Angela was sponsored by Under Armour and EyeBlack, which she was famous for wearing on, and off the field.
10 Noelle Foley
The daughter of the famous wrestler Mankind (also wrestled under Cactus Jack and Dude Love), Noelle Foley comes in half way into our list at No. 10. Back in March, Papa Foley was fired from his position (in storyline) as WWE GM by none other than Stephanie McMahon, daughter of the head honcho, Vince McMahon. Noelle claimed that she would avenge her father’s early termination, but in reality Mick was on his way out anyway due to health issues.
Noelle, besides being absolutely gorgeous, has seen little success following in her father’s footsteps. She did not make it in to the NXT and has been training for the WWE for a few years now. Currently, she is dating “Frank the Clown,” one of the most hated wrestlers out there today. Anyways, I’m hoping we can see some more of Noelle in the next few years, and I think the rest of the world would agree with me.
9 Rooney Mara
When you think of Rooney Mara, you think of a unique, classical beauty. That is what you get when your Mother’s family (the Rooney’s) founded the Pittsburgh Steelers and your father’s family (the Mara’s) founded the New York Giants. I mean, other than being a successful actress, Rooney has 10, yes 10, Lombardi trophies in her family. She has even described football as being “the glue that holds our family together.”
In her acting career, Rooney played several small roles in the mid 2000’s but got her big break through after appearing in The Social Network. Most famously though, she played The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and also appeared in other movies such as Side Effects, Pan, The Discovery and Kubo and the Two Strings.
8 Bianca La Russa
The daughter of lifetime MLBer, Tony La Russa, Bianca La Russa comes in on our list at No. 8. Her father started his playing career with the Kansas City Athletics in 1963 and played his last game for the Chicago Cubs in 1973. His managerial career then began in 1979 and ended in 2011, where he managed the Chicago White Sox, Oakland Athletics, and St. Louis Cardinals.
Even though Papa La Russa had a successful baseball career, his daughter Bianca moved in a different direction. Bianca joined the Oakland Raiders cheerleading squad (also known as the Raiderettes), but her career was cut short by a multitude of back injuries. Currently, she helps her father with an animal rescue foundation and lights up the internet with her Instagram posts.
7 Abby Hornaceck
Jeff Hornacek, not only did you produce on the court, but you helped introduce the world to your smokin’ hot daughter, Abby. The USC graduate does correspondent work for Fox Sports, and was the feature reporter for Fox Sports Arizona. She has even covered the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. This blonde bombshell even placed third runner up in the 2014 Miss Arizona USA Pageant.
Abby is now a co-host of the 120 Sports show The Rally, while her father landed the New York Knicks coaching vacancy in 2016. I’m starting to think that Phil Jackson only hired Jeff Hornaceck because wanted to see more of Abby around the Big Apple. She is truly a rising star in the sports broadcasting industry and I am sure we will see more of that pearly white smile on our TVs in the years to come.
6 Nastia Liukin
Who could forget this adorable former Olympic gold medalist gymnast? Nastia is a Russian-American athlete who is the daughter of two former Soviet Gymasts. She is best known for helping the United States take all-around gold in the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, specializing in the uneven bars. Most people were just watching to see what she would be wearing!
Since her rise to fame in 2008, Liukin has made a few television appearances, even appearing on ABC’s hit show Dancing with the Stars. Despite high scores every week, the audience voted Nastia, and her dancing partner Derek Hough, off the show in week 9 (shame on you America!) Currently, she helps commentate gymnastics events on NBC. In her gymnast days though, Liukin was known for her flexibility and grace, something we can still see on the red carpet today.
5 Kate Mara
Yes you guessed it, Kate is Rooney’s older sister and Steeler/Giant Royalty. She starred in the first season of House of Cards (SPOILER AHEAD) but was sadly killed off in the second season. But that’s not all Rooney’s older sister has accomplished. She has starred in movies such as Brokeback Mountain, We Are Marshall, Shooter, Transcendence, Fantistic Four, among many others. Her football ties go so deep with her family that she even has it written into her movie contracts that if either the Steelers or Giants go to the Superbowl, then she must be in attendance. This came after she missed Super Bowl XL due to work.
Recently, as of a couple weeks ago, Kate got married to her Fantastic Four co-star, Jamie Bell. She credits her vegan diet and intense workout routines to her slim figure, and I think I speak for everyone when I say “Thank you.”
4 Alexandria Schlereth
Thank you Mark Schlereth! Not for your two pro-bowls or three Super Bowl victories or even the 29 different surgeries you had to endure, but for your beautiful daughter Alexandria. Thanks to her father’s wealth, Alexandria got to what every girl dreams of, skip college and go directly to Hollywood (with no acting experience). Luckily, she landed a few roles here and there but never made it too big.
Alexandria now models, and has dabbled in interviewing athletes and celebrities alike on BarFly on Fox Sports. She also has worked for the clothing line Hard Ninety Gear as a model and part-time spokeswoman. So, if we are being honest, Alexandria did not just ride her dad’s coattails, she truly made a name for herself. That being said, she comes in at No. 4 on our list.
3 Avery Schlereth
Yes! Double hotness! Mark Schlereth must have some damn good genes. His other daughter Avery is our No. 3 hottest sports daughter. Come on, she has that sexy look and eyes that can penetrate any man’s soul. She has appeared on several reality shows, including one on MTV and Lifetime. Not to mention the Schlereth’s had their own reality show, Reality Stinks, named after Mark’s NFL nickname, “Stink.”
Avery mas been modeling since age 8 and continues her modeling and acting career today. She most recently was on the reality TV show, Catching Kelce, which was focused on dating the Chief’s TE. The girls in the house questioned Avery’s motives, seeing she had been on a multitude of shows before. Hopefully, viewers get to keep tuning in to this hottie for years to come.
2 Bianca Gascoigne
Paul Gascoigne was an English Footballer (Soccer), described by some as the “greatest English midfielder of his generation.” His daughter, Bianca, on the other hand, is the No. 2 hottest sports daughter of her generation. Bianca, just like some of the previous daughters, dabbles in modeling and is a serial contestant in several reality shows, such as Celebrity Big Brother, Celebrity Coach Trip, and X-Factor. Personally, I would watch her watch paint dry; those curves are ridiculous!
Apart from appearing in magazines such as Maxim and FHM, Bianca has had mild success as a sex symbol in the media. She has an on-again, off-again relationship with cage fighter CJ Meeks and is constantly showing up in the tabloids for her risqué outfits. She was just recently spotted on vacation in Cape Verde with fellow model Demi Rose. Oh, how I wish I was on that beach!
1 Kendall Jenner
The stunning daughter of Olympic decathlete Caitlyn Jenner (formerly Bruce Jenner) is a queen of all trades. If you haven’t seen Kendall in the news, you probably live under a rock. She’s on Keeping up with the Kardashians, she is a world-renowned model, and she has dated every young artist in Hollywood. Currently, she is dating A$AP Rocky.
Kendall does have a sister, Kylie, but we all know who got the better genes of the two. Aside from everything she has accomplished, Kendall was recently in some hot water for her Pepsi commercial titled “Live for Now.” In the ad, Jenner offered a can of Pepsi to police and protesters in an attempt to make peace. People were livid! They blamed Jenner for trivializing protests against police brutality and Pepsi puller the advertisement after just one day. But who can blame her, she is the No. 1 Hottest Sports Daughter (that’s not Paulina Gretzky).
