Former Boston Red Sox star third baseman Kevin Youkilis is beloved in Beantown after calling Fenway Park home for nine MLB seasons.

Youkilis, with one of the game’s wildest batting stances, won two World Series titles with the franchise and is a local hero in Boston today.

Still, even he may have punched above his popularity level when it came to his romantic life.

Former Red Sox star Kevin Youkilis is married to Julie Brady.

Julie Brady, of course, is Tom Brady’s sister, essentially making her the most-respected woman in the state of Massachusetts.

While her brother was the face of Boston sports during his run with the New England Patriots, Julie’s husband was getting things done on the baseball diamond.

Youkilis and Brady met at a fundraiser in 2010. However, Youkilis was reasonably nervous about approaching her due to her brother’s stature. Youk eventually got the courage to ask out the Super Bowl champ’s sister, and the couple got married in 2012.

They had a private wedding ceremony, which was attended by the NFL star (his new brother-in-law) and his wife, Gisele Bundchen.

Youkilis and Brady have two children together: sons Zachary and Jeremy. They also raise daughter Jordan from Julie’s previous marriage.

The family currently lives in Los Gatos, California. Youk runs a brewing company after he purchased the Los Gatos Brewing Company and rebranded it as the Loma Brewing Company.

Before his marriage to Julie Brady, Youkilis was informally married to Enza Sambataro. The two enjoyed a wedding ceremony in Cabo, San Lucas, Mexico, in 2008, but their union was never formalized.

Sambataro was in charge of the Kevin Youkilis Hits for Kids Foundation until the pair split up around 2009.

Youk featured in more than 900 regular season games for the Red Sox and 29 playoff games.

In 2012, the former first baseman was traded to the Chicago White Sox, where he’d spend half of a season before moving to New York City and joining the New York Yankees in 2013.

He’d play the final season of his career in pinstripes, retiring after the conclusion of his one-year deal.

According to reports, Kevin Youkilis boasts an estimated net worth of $24 million, and reportedly pocketed more than $51 million throughout his MLB career.
