The Hottest Athlete Daughters in Sports That Are All Grown Up
People complain about traffic, weather and life. But what they do not understand is how good their life truly is. Anyone can complain about trivial things, but what about the added pressure of having a famous father? Even better, what about having a famous father who was also an athlete?
Not all celebrity children grow up to be crazy, just most of them. Some of them even come out looking like roses on a Christmas tree, as you are about to see.
Here are the hottest athlete daughters in sports. Enjoy.
20. Alyonka and Diana Larionov: Igor Larionov
If I were to tell you that Igor Larionov was an NHL hockey player, at first glance you would call me crazy. The 5'9", 170-pound beast from the Soviet Union was not only a hockey player, but a good one at that. He won several gold medals for his home country during the Olympics, and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2008.
He has three children, two of them being Alyonka and Diana Larionov. One of the sisters, Alyonka, even tried out for American Idol during Season 7. Based on looks, I would have put her through to Hollywood.
19. Laila Ali: Muhammad Ali
As if being the daughter of any athlete was not difficult enough for one person to handle, try being the daughter to the greatest boxer of all time, Muhammad Ali.
Laila Ali took up boxing for a little while, compiling a perfect 24-0 record. Most of her fights were not even close, she knocked out 21 of the 24 opponents. She might not be her father, but with stats like these, she is one of the best female boxers ever.
18. Brittany Favre: Brett Favre
As if you did not already know who this was from the name itself.
Brittany Favre is the daughter of future Hall of Fame NFL QB, Brett Favre. She made news in the past few years because she had a child, making Brett Favre the first grandfather of the NFL.
From the looks of things, he will not be the last.
17. Elizabeth Montana: Joe Montana
Elizabeth Montana's father is the greatest NFL QB of all time, Joe Montana. Her father has four Super Bowl wins, was named Super Bowl MVP three times and was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame.
She will not have to worry about any pressure for following in her dad's footsteps, as football is the opposite of what she enjoys doing. She hopes to be a model one day, and her mother, former model Jennifer Wallace, even encouraged her.
She spoke about her daughter's passion for modeling, saying, "I could tell she wanted to try it, so I said, 'Hey, let’s give it a shot.' I would never suggest it for my daughter, though, if she wasn't so well-balanced. In this business, as crazy as it sounds, you can’t take things personally."
16. Tracy Phillips: Wade Phillips
When Wade Phillips' daughter Tracy Phillips was asked if she ever got to know her dad's players, she replied, "Well, you meet most of the players when you go to games every Sunday. I don't know as many of the Bills because I live in California, now."
The translation: As she got older and much sexier, she was hit on so much she had to stay away from the games because daddy did not want the distraction.
15. Jordin Sparks: Phillippi Sparks
Jordin Sparks is the only daughter on this list to win American Idol. She has had two studio albums since her debut in the music industry—her first one, Jordin Sparks, went platinum, selling over one million copies.
Her father is Phillippi Sparks, former New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys cornerback.
14. Angela Rypien: Mark Rypien
Angela Rypien's father, Mark Rypien, has done more for the Washington Redskins organization than any other QB in their history. He won two Super Bowls, was named Super Bowl MVP once and was named one of the greatest Redskins in history.
How does she follow that act? By playing football in the Lingerie Football League. It might not be the NFL, but there is not a big request for a professional women's football league, so she is doing the best she can and looks good doing it.
13. Nicki Meyer: Urban Meyer
Nicki Meyer's father, former University of Florida head football coach and two time BCS National Champion Urban Meyer, has accomplished more in his career time than most families do in a lifetime.
So it would be a no-brainer that she would choose her father as her biggest influence in life. Not so fast, folks. According to her bio on Georgia Tech's volleyball website, she says her mother is her biggest influence. Shocking!
12. Alexa Flutie: Doug Flutie
Do not let the eyes fool you, Alexa Flutie is a hottie. The daughter of former NFL QB Doug Flutie makes an excellent looking scared bikini model, but that is not intentional.
Tom Brady might even recognize this beauty from the sidelines. She is one of the New England Patriots cheerleaders. I doubt he would admit it, but he definitely checks out the ladies on the sidelines.
11. Rachel Bradshaw: Terry Bradshaw
Rachel Bradshaw's father is former Pittsburgh Steelers QB and four-time Super Bowl winner, Terry Bradshaw. Instead of spending all this time trying to come up with something clever, I ask you to admire his singing talents.
10. Stephanie McMahon: Vince McMahon
If your father, Vince McMahon, owned the biggest and baddest wrestling organization ever, WWE, what would you have to do for a living?
Stephanie McMahon spent most of her life in the background until she decided it was time to hit the spotlight and she made her wrestling debut. The rest is history and her bankroll is still growing.
9. Paulina Gretzky: Wayne Gretzky
If your father's nickname is "The Greatest," it would be hard to follow that with a sledgehammer. Paulina Gretzky has had to deal with it her entire life, but endured and became a successful actress and model.
She is only 22 years old and has already proven she can sing—her album "Collecting Dust" was released in 2006. It will not be too much longer before she becomes a household name. She already is in my house.
8. Kate Mara: Art Rooney and Tim Mara
Kate Mara does not have a father who plays sports. She does not even have a grandfather or mother who played sports. However, she has one of the purest bloodlines in the NFL.
Kate has two great grandfathers—Art Rooney, founder of the Pittsburgh Steelers, and Tim Mara, founder of the New York Giants. Her ties to both founders puts her on top my list of most impressive NFL lineages.
7. Brooke Hogan: Hulk Hogan
When you were a kid, do you remember the day in school when your teacher made you bring your parents for "What Does Your Dad do Day," because I do.
Brooke Hogan probably won that day with ease when her father, the greatest professional wrestler of all time, Hulk Hogan, walked into the classroom.
It is one of those moments when all the other kids just look down and say, "dang!"
6. Deiondra Sanders: Deion Sanders
Two weeks ago, on a Saturday night in Alabama, there was a football game. The No. 1-ranked LSU Tigers headed to Tuscaloosa to face the second-ranked Crimson Tide, and came out victorious. Millions of fans watched at home, nearly 20 million.
One of those fans, Deion Sanders' daughter Deiondra Sanders, was rooting for her Tigers.
"my Tigers rolled right over Alabama roll tide!! hahah #GeauxLSU" - @deiondrasanders
5. Kourtney Kardashian: Bruce Jenner
OK, so Bruce Jenner is not the birth father of Kourtney Kardashian, but who is judging. She is easily the hottest Kardashian sister, and any time I have a chance to feature her in an article, she will be.
Kourtney always seemed to stay further away from the spotlight than her sister Kim, but that does not mean that she was never noticed. She used her beautiful figure to become a successful model and we love her for it.
4. Bianca La Russa: Tony La Russa
Now that Tony La Russa is retired, he will have more than enough time to hang out with his daughter, Bianca La Russa. She started the season as a Oakland Raiderette, but has since had to quit due to a back injury.
With his retirement and her injury, I guess it will be catch-up time in the La Russa household.
3. Lexxi Silver: Bernie Kosar
Bernie Kosar has not been used as a reference since, well, this past year. In the film I Am Number Four, Kosar is the name of the family beagle, and yes, that is a direct reference to the NFL QB.
His daughter Lexxi Silver, however, is talked about all the time in the adult entertainment industry where she strives as an adult film star.
It must be odd to have a daughter being a porn star. I wonder how many players in the NFL ask him about her?
2. Brittny Gastineau: Mark Gastineau
It is hard to find a sexier looking female spawn from any NFL player. Brittny (that is not a typo, she spells her name that way) Gastineau is the daughter to one of the greatest defensive players in NFL history, Mark Gastineau.
Her father had one of the greatest and most original sack dances of all time. One might say he even invented the sack dance.
1. Bianca Gascoigne: Paul Gascoigne
Bianca Gascoigne is the sexiest athlete daughter. She even gets bonus points for having to endure the crazy Paul "Gazza" Gascoigne as her stepfather.
Her father was such a terrible role model, he used to hand his bank card to his drug dealers to have them take money out of the ATM for the drugs. Talk about addiction. That is beyond crazy. He was handing his bank account to dealers and telling them to take what is owed? This man is on a whole new level of crazy.
