Richard Sherman's Delightful Married Life With Ashley Moss
Richard Sherman is married to his beautiful wife Ashley Moss. The couple tied the knot on 28th March 2018.

Earlier, the couple got engaged in June 2015 in Maui after dating for four years. They share two children, a son named Rayden Sherman born on 5th February 2015, and a daughter named Avery Sherman born on 16th April 2016.
This past week has been full of blessings for our little family. We were blessed to welcome our daughter Avery into the world April 16th. Hearing Rayden say "sister sister" absolutely melts my heart as he is adjusting to life as big brother. For my birthday, my better half surprised me with the most heart felt gift I could ask for. I don't really post my gifts but this one I felt I had to share. This beautiful ring with an amethyst to represent Rayden's birthday and diamonds for Avery's birthday. He had it for engraved with our initials "RKS" and "ALS", which all four of share.
Meanwhile, Moss' first pregnancy was a huge story in the media and it surprised Sherman. Speaking of this, the American football star said:
"I didn’t think it was that big of a deal. He’s close, but he’s not expected to come this weekend. So, I was surprised at how big. But I guess in a game like this, a story like that, you can’t pass it up. I was surprised it was a national headline, more than anything."
Moss was pregnant with the first baby during the Super Bowl XLIX. Merely four days after the Super Bowl, Sherman's then-girlfriend gave birth to Rayden.
The NFL star often posts pictures of his wife and kids on social media. The pictures definitely suggest Richard's married life is filled with joy and they couldn't be happier together.
