The 25 Most Beautiful Athlete Daughters in Sports

0 of 25

    Athlete procreation is a mysterious process. Naturally we expect the offspring of the best talents worldwide to be physically gifted and mentally driven. But sometimes the script is flipped, and the athletic children turn out to be wild, weird or...oh yes...smoking hot.

    The latter is a category we've yet to lose interest in, and one we are certain we will continue to study.

    During our recent search for the most beautiful athlete daughters on Earth, we found several more gems who only recently surfaced.

    But enough chatter, let's get straight to it.

    Here are the most beautiful athlete daughters in sports.

    No DNA tests needed.

25. Elizabeth Montana

1 of 25

    Joe Montana's clutch gene led him to 31 fourth quarter come-from-behind wins and four memorable Super Bowl victories with the Niners during the '80s and early '90s.

    But it also gave him a breathtaking daughter who is quickly heating up the Internet with just another routine bikini.

24. Bianca La Russa

2 of 25

    A back injury may have hindered her developing Raiderette career, but it certainly didn't halt her budding prowess on camera.

    The daughter of legendary former Cardinals manager and infielder Tony La Russa is several smiles away from greatness.

23. Brittany Favre

3 of 25

    The daughter of the NFL's most illustrious Iron Man, Brittany Favre is a sight to behold.

    She's also a sign of Brett Favre's age, as she made him the first active grandfather when she delivered son Parker Brett last year.

22. Leigh Mayock

4 of 25

    Long after having several cups of coffee with the Giants in '82 and '83, safety Mike Mayock decided to approach a career in sports media.

    But amid his quest for journalistic greatness he produced an attractive daughter who, like most of her peers, specializes in taking pictures of herself and forcing them on "innocent" web-heads.

    So while her father was commentating last season's AFC Wild Card game between the Bengals and Texans, Leigh Mayock was likely enjoying a necessary photo-booth session.

21. The Larionov Sisters

5 of 25

    It was his 475 career assists that made Igor Larionov one of the most beloved passers in the history of the NHL, and his three Stanley Cups with the Detroit Red Wings (1997, 1998 and 2002) earned him immortality. 

    But his beautiful daughters are headed for similar greatness with their admirable acts of kindness.

20. Brooke Hogan

6 of 25

    An entrepreneur and the oldest daughter of former wrestler Hulk Hogan, Brooke has been seen doing albums, reality shows and getting slammed by Paul Roma.

    So many possible careers, so little time for Brooke Hogan.

19. Anne Marie Carbonneau

7 of 25

    For a short time in Dallas, fan favorite Guy Carbonneau and youngster Brenden Morrow were teammates. Why is this significant?

    Well, only two years later (in July of '02 to be exact), Carbonneau's delightful daughter was seen walking down the aisle with Morrow. Thanksgiving immediately got a whole lot icier.

18. Stephanie Turner

8 of 25

    Having appeared on CSI: NY, 7th Heaven and Dirt, Stephanie Turner is clearly a blossoming star in the acting business. 

    Her father is best known for having coached the most games in NFL history among head coaches with a losing record. But San Diego coach "Norv-West" Turner does have one claim to fame that most don't consider.

    Fun Fact: Norv Turner was the backup to future San Diego Charger and Hall of Famer Dan Fouts during his time at Oregon.

17. Stephanie McMahon

9 of 25

    Following in her father's wrestling footsteps, Stephanie McMahon transitioned from former wrestler (mostly valet) to Executive Vice President for WWE.

    Vince McMahon's daughter now finds herself married to wrestling icon Paul "Triple H" Levesque, with three lovely daughters.

    A fairytale ending for the McMahon family.

16. Lexxi Silver

10 of 25

    Business bankruptcy, unpaid taxes and failed endeavors. Not much more can go wrong for former Super Bowl-winning signal caller Bernie Kosar.

    Oh wait, yes it can. He can learn of his daughter Sara's pornographic career from the thorough gents over at Busted Coverage (thanks bros).

15. Deiondra Sanders

11 of 25

    One of the two children NFL great Deion Sanders had with Carolyn Chambers, Deiondra Sanders seems ready to outshine the three children (Shilo, Shedeur and Shelomi) her father had with Pilar Biggers.

    The young stunner is always out to get her controversial stepmother.

14. Nicki Meyer

12 of 25

    The successful former Gator and current Buckeyes coach known across the world as Urban Meyer is best known for his .819 winning percentage. But he was once a shortstop, drafted by the Braves in the 13th round of the 1982 MLB Draft.

    Georgia Tech volleyballer Nicki Meyer clearly got more than just the athletic genes in the family.

13. Laila Ali

13 of 25

    Like father, like daughter. Retired boxer Laila Ali is a force to be reckoned with in and away from the ring.

    24-0. Enough said.

12. Gina Carano

14 of 25

    Glenn Carano was a backup quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys from 1977 to 1983 who only tossed three touchdowns during his short career.

    But his daughter? Well, Gina Carano became the Face of Women's MMA and a lad-mag legend.

    And she's far from finished.

11. Jordin Sparks

15 of 25

    A cornerback for the Giants during the '90s, Phillippi Sparks is now the proud father of the youngest American Idol winner in history.

    While the R&B icon does also have a Grammy to her name, it's her elegance on camera that makes her a star.

10. Sydney Esiason

16 of 25

    Not only is she following in her father's athletic footsteps as a defender on the Boston College Women's Lacrosse Club, but Sydney Esiason appears capable of hosting her own radio show. She's got the look of success.

    Boomer's got a Most Valuable Player award and 247 touchdowns to his name, but may lose his last-name fame to his accomplished daughter.

9. Rachel Bradshaw

17 of 25

    Three marriages, three divorces and one magical gem for Terry Bradshaw.

    He played 14 seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, won four Super Bowl titles in a six-year period and led the Steelers to eight AFC Central championships.

    But Bradshaw's Hall of Fame accomplishments seem to pale in comparison to his beautiful daughter's new record deal. She's certainly got the Carrie Underwood look going on.

    Bradshaw's ferocious cadences clearly didn't skip a generation.

8. Alexa Flutie

18 of 25

    She may be following in her father's footsteps on the gridiron, but Alexa Flutie is painting her own unique masterpiece.

    The former Patriots cheerleader can now be found on the warm San Diego grass rooting for the Chargers.

    Looks like Doug Flutie's delightful daughter ate her Flutie Flakes.

7. Jasmyn Wilkins

19 of 25

    If there was such a thing as too many genes, Jasmyn Wilkins might scrape the border.

    The daughter of Chattanooga legend and former New York Knick Gerald Wilkins, the niece of Atlanta Hawks icon Dominique Wilkins and the brother of current Piston Damien Wilkins, Jasmyn seems only a basketball grip away from following the path of her legendary family.

    But not only did Miss Georgia USA come in fourth in Miss USA 2012, she's also a nursing student at Georgia State. A well-rounded winner, and a blossoming great in her own right.

6. Angela Rypien

20 of 25

    Following in the hard-nosed footsteps of her quarterback father Mark Rypien (MVP of Super Bowl XXVI), Angela is looking to write her own historical script.

    She seems more than ready to live up to her Redskin-ed father's dominance.

5. Cassie Trammell

21 of 25

    Like mother, like daughter. Cassie Trammell is following the prestigious path of her pom-pomming mom as a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader Group Leader.

    She's got more than just the slight smile necessary for sideline domination.

4. Brittny Gastineau

22 of 25

    Her father may have been the ringleader of the famed "New York Sack Exchange," but Brittny Gastineau is paving her own magical path to prosperity.

    The scorching model seems confident in her ability to eclipse Mark Gastineau as the greatest Gastineau ever to grace the Earth.

3. Alexandria Schlereth

23 of 25

    A three-time champion NFL guard, Mark Schlereth can now be found spitting arbitrary analysis on ESPN.

    His daughter, however, is just beginning to find her groove in the acting world. But while she was an actress on the MyNetworkTV series Desire, her brother Daniel may be the more accomplished sibling as an intriguing, yet ineffective relief pitcher for the Detroit Tigers.

2. Paulina Gretzky

24 of 25

    It's only natural that the daughter of the greatest hockey player of all time would yearn for a similar spotlight.

    The eldest of Wayne Gretzky and Janet Jones' five children, Paulina Gretzky has gotten her feet wet in modeling, singing and even Instagraming.

    She loves social media more than most it seems.

1. Bianca Gascoigne

25 of 25

    Considering she's been on the covers of Loaded and Nuts, you'll have to excuse us from including the stepdaughter of legendary English footballer Paul Gascoigne.

    This British glamour model is already a star.
