When you think of elite NFL quarterbacks, Joe Flacco instantly comes to mind.

Okay… maybe not, but the former Baltimore Ravens quarterback has still managed to string together a solid career in the pros, including a Super Bowl victory.

Flacco is now with his fourth franchise after signing with the Philadelphia Eagles, and he’ll be making the move to Philly with his biggest fan and loving wife Dana.

The two were high school sweethearts at Audubon High School in New Jersey, and have been together ever since.

The Flaccos have five children. Their first child, son Stephen Flacco was born in 2012, a year before they welcomed their second son, Daniel Flacco.

In 2015, the pair welcomed their third son, Francis and in 2016 they had their only daughter, Evelyn.

Their fifth child, Thomas Kevin, was born in 2018.

The NFL player often posts pictures of the family on social media.

Dana Flacco was raised in New Jersey to parents Daniel and Deborah Grady, alongside her three siblings, Lisa, Sara and Zachary.

Dana isn’t working, though raising five children is certainly more than a full-time job.
