How Did Mark Davis Meet Pregnant Girlfriend, 43 Years His Junior?

Most people know by now that Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis is 69 years old and that his alleged girlfriend is 26. They also know that his girlfriend is pregnant — and reports suggest that Davis, 43 years older, is the father.

But how did they meet? Well, that seems to be the question.

As we relayed here, the GF is said to be Hayden Hopkins, a Las Vegas local and Cirque Du Soleil dance performer. She has admitted to hanging out plenty with Davis, mostly as a "friend and neighbor." She also doesn't need to admit to it, because we've all seen the pair together at Raiders games, sitting in the owner's box.

They're not Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce, but Davis and Hopkins are probably a close No. 2 when it comes to NFL celebrity couples.

But are they really a couple? Is Davis really the father? Do we have any clue why she is hanging out with him?

OK, we probably know why she is hanging out with him. The man owns the Raiders and WNBA's Las Vegas Aces. He's got cash, and loads of it. But how it came to this, we may never know.

Maybe they really are neighbors and Davis just decided to invite her to some games. Or maybe he's a huge fan of Cirque Du Soleil. There are certainly plenty of theories, but nothing concrete.

Now, Essentially Sports did do some digging on Hopkins' background — with the outlet reporting the following:

"While the spotlight is shining brightly on her alleged romance with Davis, Hopkins' rise to prominence extends far beyond the Allegiant Stadium owner's suites. The 26-year-old was born and raised in Seattle, Washington alongside her younger sister Lennox, who is also a dancer focused on rhythmic gymnastics.

"From a young age, Hopkins was racking up major titles like Regional Teen Miss Starpower 2010 and National Hollywood Vibe Teen Dancer of the Year 2010" while competing under different dance studios. Her prowess caught the attention of brands, modeling for top dancewear companies like California Kisses and Capezio.

"After graduating from Marymount Manhattan College in New York City with a Bachelor's in Dance, Hopkins' career skyrocketed. Hayden has been on the cover of Dance Spirit and Dance Informa magazine. Her high-profile gigs included performing for acts like Jason Derulo and Good Morning America, as well as the KDRTV Awards show."

In other words, she's led and long fruitful life already. She's even managed to keep her relationship with Davis, and how they met, a major secret. That, some may say, is her greatest accomplishment yet.
