Meet Brenda Warner, a United States Marine Corps veteran who is married to Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner. Brenda is said to be the driving force behind her husband’s exceptional performance on the field recently which contributed to the Cardinals’ first opportunity to play in the Super Bowl. See photos, video and a biography of Brenda Warner here.
Brenda has been with her husband through the rough patches that he had to hit before making it big in NFL. After the 32-25 win over the Eagles, the first thing Kurt asked for was about his wife, who was making her way towards him through a jubilant crowd. Certainly, she was more important to him than the N.F.C. championship trophy.
“She’s been one of the few people that’s been with me from the beginning,” Warner said. “We were just telling each other that we loved each other. This is unbelievable and there’s no one I’d rather share it with.”
As a biography, Brenda Warner is from Iowa and was born in 1968 so her age is 40. She has been a cheerleader, a nurse and a Marine in her life. She met Kurt while he was working as a bag-boy at the local Hy-Vee store after hitting tough times in his career. Brenda was a divorcee at that time and had two children, son Zachary and daughter Jesse, from her previous marriage.
Kurt and Brenda got married on October 11th, 1997. They now have their own five children and are active born-again Christians.
“The first night we met, after we danced that night, I told him, ‘I just want you to know I am a divorced mother of two, so if I never hear from you again, I will understand.’ That’s the way it usually worked. The next morning, he showed up with a rose and wanted to meet the kids. He fell in love with the kids a lot sooner than he fell in love with me,” says Brenda in a recent interview.
