LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Julie Brady (photos below) is Tom Brady’s sister; but Julie Brady will soon also be Kevin Youkilis’ wife. Julie Brady and Kevin Youkilis are engaged and reportedly set to marry this year, Boston news claims today. Julie Brady’s engagement is the second wedding surprise making Patriots news this month. But it also has a twist.
Julie Brady and Kevin Youkilis are engaged. But as Deadspin claims today, the Boston Herald four months ago first published a news article that Kevin Youkilis was dating Nancy Brady, Julie’s sister. That Nancy-article is since been deleted by the Herald, claims Deadspin. So did Kevin ever date Nancy Brady? “Apparently they got that detail wrong last time” claims Larry Brown Sports.
Today’s Herald article reports Julie’s engagement to Kevin; but in one strange gaffe, the Herald even refers to Julie as “Nancy”.
But there is an additional twist. The Herald claims that Youkilis met Julie Brady after her brother suffered a stunning defeat last season. Apparently as Tom Brady was agonizing about his loss to the Jets, Julie Brady was falling in love. Julie met Kevin during a postgame party at Patriot Place last year after the New York Jets knocked the Patriots out of the playoffs, claims Boston news.
Julie Brady was a soccer player at St. Mary’s in California; she is now a school teacher. This is Kevin’s second marriage; Julie Brady has a five year old daughter from previous relationship.
Julie Brady won’t be the only Patriots-tied wedding this off-season. Anna Burns (photos below), Miss 2005 Hooters International, is set to marry to Wes Welker. As previously reported on LALATE, Ann Burns is the winner of the 2005 Hooters International Pageant”. She previously made news as Miss December in the 2005 Hooters Calendar.
The Herald said of Burns and Welker earlier this month that, “Although the couple is pretty low-key, they have been spotted at the Miss Hooters International pageant down in Florida and at the local Whole Foods buying ingredients for eggplant parm.”
Burns and Welker have dated for several years. The two were close after he suffered left knee injury in 2009. They reportedly moved in together when his knee surgery for a torn MCL and ACL in February 2010.
No wedding dates for Burns-Welker, and Youkilis-Brady, have been confirmed to news.
