Derek Carr has been happily married to his high school sweetheart for over 10 years! The 32-year-old quarterback started playing football professionally in 2014 when he was drafted to the Oakland Raiders.
The team moved to Las Vegas in 2020. After 9 years with the Raiders, Derek was traded to the New Orleans Saints in 2023 and is currently playing his first season with his new team.
Derek is a famous football player and treats his four children, whom he shares with his wife Heather, very well.
Derek and Heather went to the same high school but didn’t meet until they started college at Fresno State College. While Derek lived on campus and played football, Heather lived at home and worked as a waitress at BJ’s Brewhouse.
During his sophomore homecoming, Derek had dinner at BJ’s Brewhouse while Heather waited at his table, and the two hit it off immediately. In an interview with ABC7, Heather shared the pickup line Derek first used.
“I had diamond earrings in my ears and I had them both, so I knew it was it. And she said, “Why do you only wear one earring?” Heather remembered. “And it allowed me to check my ears. And I said, “Is that your pickup line?” I thought. (It worked) it worked. I talked to him.”
Derek and Heather married on June 29, 2012, in an intimate ceremony attended by family and close friends.
Together they share sons Dallas, born in August 2013, Deker, born in 2016, and Deakon, born in May 2019.
Their daughter Brooklyn was born in 2020.
Heather is also a social media influencer with over 50,000 followers on Instagram.
