Whether they've married Hollywood stars, famous models, or longtime significant others, some of the biggest names in sports have gained widespread fan approval of their relationships.
In the case of Nicole Scherzinger and Thom Evans, the Pussycat Dolls founder is doing most of the heavy lifting when it comes to fame! Evans is a former rugby player who played for the Scottish national team as well as the Glasgow Warriors for several years, but he retired from the game due to a neck injury back in 2010. He has since worked as a model, actor, and performer, appearing on British talent shows like 'Strictly Come Dancing' and 'The X Factor: Celebrity,' the latter of which connected him to Scherzinger. She was working as a judge on the show when he competed in 2019, and the rest is history. They have been dating since then and Evans finally popped the question on the beach in Hawaii in 2023. Scherzinger shared a photo of Evans on one knee to Instagram on June 27 with the caption, "I said yes."
