Katie Hamilton is in the news today, as her husband, Josh Hamilton has been embroiled in a photo scandal.
Josh Hamilton was snapped in a Tempe, Arizona bar in January 2009 partying with women, shirtless and licking whipped cream off of a woman’s breast. He reportedly told his wife, team and MLB about the incident shortly after it happened.
“I’m embarrassed about it. For the Rangers, I’m embarrassed about it. For my wife, my kids. It’s one of those things that just reinforces about alcohol. Unfortunately, it happened. It just reinforces to me that if I’m out there getting ready for a season and taking my focus off the most important thing in my recovery, which is my relationship with Christ, it’s amazing how those things creep back in.”
As a biography, Katie Chadwick Hamilton had attended the same high school as Josh when they were growing up, and met him again 2002 in Raleigh, North Carolina when Hamilton was on a suspension from MLB. They married in 2004. Katie has a daughter from a previous relationship (Julia) and with Josh, they have two girls, Sierra and Michaela Grace.
Katie’s father, Michael Chadwick, was instrumental in getting Hamilton sober. Hamilton suffered a relapse after their first child together was born and Katie and Josh separated. They reconciled in 2005, after he became clean again.
Katie is standing by her man once again, as photos surfaced of Josh Hamilton at a Tempe, Arizona bar in January 2009 where he was seen shirtless and licking whipped cream off of a woman. He has confirmed the photos and is apologizing to his family and teammates. Of Katie, he said:
“Katie and I have a strong relationship and same thing with the drugs, she told me she forgave me for what I did, she meant it. Since this has happened I told her what I did, what I knew about it, and she said she forgives me.”
