Meet Jennifer Slay, wife of Eagles star Darius, whose stunning social media snaps have crowned her the ‘Queen of Philly’.
DARIUS SLAY is aiming for a Super Bowl spot – while his ‘Queen of Philadelphia’ looks on from the stands.
The 32-year-old Eagles star is cheered on by his doting wife, Jennifer, in the NFL playoffs against the San Francisco 49ers.
Slay is one of the most dominant corners in the league and was omnipresent during the Eagles’ 13-3 2022 season.
He was drafted in the second round of the 2013 draft by the Detroit Lions after excelling in college for Mississippi State.
Slay met his future wife Jennifer, 31, in 2015 while she was a senior at Southwestern Oklahoma State University.
A native of Clinton, Oklahoma, Jennifer was a Division 2 basketball star during her time at SOSU.
She graduated from Clinton High School in 2012 and played guard for the Bulldogs throughout college.
Jennifer — going by her maiden name Williams — has seen plenty of playtime during her two years with the program.
She finished her time with the Bulldogs with 491 points, 121 rebounds and 17 steals in 51 games.
Jennifer left basketball after becoming a mother at 18 and initially bonded with Darius over their struggles since both were teenage parents.
The couple reportedly went to an Oklahoma City Thunder NBA game for their first date.
While Slay credits Jennifer with his “maturity” on and off the field.
He told the Detroit Free Press in 2016, “[Jennifer] is my stress reliever.
“I’ve been with a lot of mature men, happily married men.
“When I see them living happily, well, shoot, I’ve got to do the same.
“You’re doing the right thing, I have to do the right thing.”
Slayton and Jennifer married in Brunswick in June 2017 in front of friends and family.
They now have a happy household of five children, welcoming daughter Desirae in 2017 and Desmond in 2021.
Darion and Demetrius are Darius’ sons from a previous relationship, while Jennifer has another son named Trent.
In addition to raising her growing family, Jennifer works as a model and social media influencer.
And she’s found a place in the heart of the Eagles fan base, who are dreaming of Super Bowl glory again.
Ahead of the 2022 NFL Divisional round, Jennifer shared a series of stunning snaps of her in a Philly jersey.
And fans of her 50,000 Instagram followers flocked to comment on the pictures.
One wrote: “The Queen of Philadelphia!”
Another added: “Girls you are a woman of the people.”
While a third said: “You already know! And Philly has your back!”
The Eagles will take on the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, January 29.
