Tua Tagovailoa's Secret Marriage to His Wife Isn't so Secret Anymore

Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa prefers to keep his private life just that, but he shared a rare picture of his wife on their anniversary.

The Miami Dolphins are off to a hot start in 2023, moving to 2-0 after a Sunday Night Football win over the New England Patriots. The offense has looked like a well-oiled machine with speedsters like Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle and Raheem Mostert. But as everyone knows, their season revolves around the health of quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

Multiple concussions last season put the former Alabama signal caller at serious risk of calling his career quits at just 25. But an offseason of weekly jiu-jitsu classes where he learned how to fall correctly have kept him off the sidelines so far this season, and he's starting to show why he was a top-five pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Regardless of the Tagovailoa's future, though, he'll always have his No. 1 fan by his side, his wife, Annah.

Sure all football players are public figures, but Tua is a very, very private person and always has been, even in high school. So, it was surprising to learn he had a girlfriend who actually existed let alone a wife. At a Dolphins training camp press conference in August 2022, it was revealed the University of Alabama product tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend, Annah Gore, on July 18. Right on brand, Tua and Annah didn't have a big ceremony or anything, they simply went to the Broward County courthouse in Florida to perform their nuptials.

"It was very special. I don't know who ended up leaking it, but he must have been waiting outside the courthouse for an entire week or something," the Dolphins quarterback said. "For me, I love to keep my life as private as possible, and that's what we tried to do, me, my wife and my family. But obviously in this world, that's not how it is. It's almost kind of disrespectful, if you will, by doing that. But it is what it is, and, shoot, can't do anything about it. Guys, I have a wife."

It remains a mystery how the news got out. Maybe someone was perusing the public court records on the Broward County Clerk of Courts website and stumbled across their marriage license. Completely normal thing to do if that was the case.

As for Annah, unsurprisingly, there's little to nothing known about her other than she's now Tua Tagovailoa's wife, a High Point, N.C., native and her full name is Annah Concetta Gore. However, Tagovailoa posted an anniversary appreciation post on July 17 this year, plastering her face right on his account.

"Never one to put my private life out there. But this one deserved a post. Happy 1 Year Anniversary to my beautiful wife. I love you," he wrote.

Annah, whose account is public for now, also shared a post on her Instagram.

"Happy first anniversary to my best friend and husband! I love you," she wrote.

Other than that, there's isn't much to tell the story of Annah and Tua. Plenty of athletes prefer keeping their private lives private. Tua may have them beat in keeping his life out of the public eye, but it appears he's a happily taken man.
