Good Genes: The Hottest Athlete Relatives of All Time
Nothing is harder than getting out of the shadow of a relative who happens to be a famous athlete or coach.
Michael Jordan's kids will never make their own names, neither will Montana's QB sons. And one day Tom Brady's boys will have to answer questions about being heirs to the throne.
But there is one way to make your own identity...
And that is to be smoking hot!
Here are the rules:
A) All ladies are hot relatives who don't mind being in the limelight. Some are actresses, some are reality stars, singers or models.
B) All have sports relatives has who are legitimate pros. No hot daughters who have assistant coaches for fathers or third string qb's as their second cousins.
C) Some are still in college, but all are of age.
D) And all are really good looking.
*Two young ladies made Honorable Mention because we just didn't have enough material to judge them by...
Honorable Mention A - Diana Lopez
Diana is the younger sister of US Olympians Steven and Mark López.,.
in 2005 they became the first three siblings in any sport to win World Championship titles at the same event when they accomplished the feat at the World Taekwondo Championships in Madrid, Spain.
She also won a bronze medal in Taekwondo at the 2008 Olympic games.
So not only is she hot, she can beat you up.
Honorable Mention B - Elizabeth Montana
You want to know how to get out of you father's shadow?
Don't become a QB.
The lovely Elizabeth is an up and coming model.
Take more pictures, Liz.
No. 10 - Nicki Meyer
The young lady on the left is Nicki Meyer.
She is Florida coach Urban Meyer's daughter and a volleyball player at Georgia Tech University.
The guy on the right used to play football, I hear.
No. 9 - Bianca LaRussa
According to Google, Cardinals Skipper Tony LaRussa's little girl lives in the Bay Area and likes to tweet.
She also likes to quote German writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
"Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you will help them to become what they are capable of becoming." - Goethe
No. 8 - Jordin Sparks
Jordin rose to fame by winning Season 6 of American Idol. She then released an album that went double platinum.
Jordin's dad Phillippi Sparks was a nine-year NFL vet who started for several years at cornerback for the New York Giants.
No. 7 - Brooke Hogan
According to Wikipedia, "Brooke Hogan, is an American singer, actress, model, socialite, and television personality."
Most people just know her as Hulk Hogan's gravity defying daughter.
No. 6 - Rooney Mara
Rooney Mara is an interesting young lady.
She is the great-great granddaughter of both the founders of the New York Giants and the Pittsburgh Steelers
She is also an actress, who just starred in this year's remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street.
But get this, Rooney is also the founder and overseer of the charity Faces of Kibera, which benefits orphans from the Kibera slum in Nairobi, Kenya, one of the largest slums in Africa.
No. 5 - Rachel Bradshaw
Some younger football fans don't know this, but before Terry Bradshaw was the stuttering, loud guy on Fox's pre-game football show, he was a four-time Super Bowl champion quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
That's more titles than Favre, Manning and Brees,combined.
Pretty soon he'll just be known as country singer Rachel Bradshaw's dad.
No. 4 - Brittny Gastineau
Brittny Gastineau is a socialite, reality star and most importantly for us, the daughter of Mark Gastineau, a founding member of the New York Jets great defensive line known as the "New York Sack Exchange."
Gastineau was a five-time pro bowler.
Brittny is a good friend of Paris Hilton and can also wear the hell out of a metallic top.
No. 3 - Laila Ali
I'm not a big fan of female boxing.
I mean, don't get me wrong, I'll check out a good cat fight after the bar closes, but once they put on gloves and baggy shorts, you can count me out.
(You see how I did that?)
Anyway, this is Muhammad Ali's daughter, Laila.
She boxes and models. Sometimes, both at the same time.
No. 2 - Kate Mara
Rooney's older sister is a bonafide movie star. She has been in box office hits like We Are Marshall, Brokeback Mountain and just recently in Iron Man 2.
She's also been on hit tv shows like 24 and Entourage.
Kate might not run international charities like her little sister, but she does have hotness in common with her.
And because her great-grandfathers founded the Steelers and Giants, she is an avid football fan, writing it into her acting contracts that if either team makes it to the Super Bowl, she will be able to attend.
A hot football fanatic. How cool is that?
No. 1 - Paulina Gretzky
The Great one strikes again.
Wayne Gretzky and his model / actress wife Janet Jones are the proud parents of Paulina, who happens to be a model and pop singer.
He also played a little hockey.
That'll do, Gretz,. That'll do.
...So who did I forget?
