Meet Kaci Dunn Houshmandzadeh, wife of NFL star T.J. Houshmandzadeh. The two have been together since T.J.’s junior college years back in 1997-1998.
The couple has two adorable daughters. When speaking on T.J.’s relationship with his two daughters, Kaci says, ”He is the world’s greatest dad.“ ”He is really into our kids“, Kaci said of her husband. She adds, “T.J. has given his children their baths. He changed diapers. T.J. would get up overnight to give the babies a bottle, so his wife could sleep. Now he and the girls wrestle in the house. They play ball outside and ride bikes.” ”I do appreciate it,“ Kaci said. ”I know a lot of women who have to do everything by themselves. I look at T.J. and see the joy in his eyes when he’s with the girls.”
The Houshmandzadeh’s live in their 8,000 sq. feet, 3 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms house in California.
T.J. Houshmandzadeh has played 9 years in the NFL. He was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the seventh round (204th overall) in the 2001 NFL Draft.
After spending 8 years with the Cincinnati Bengals, T.J. decided to explore his options with other teams. The Bengals reportedly gave him an offer, but he countered the statement saying “Cincinnati’s offer wasn’t enough for me to continue to play there, I think I should be able to start fresh.”
On March 2, 2009, Houshmandzadeh was signed by the Seattle Seahawks to a five-year $40 million contract with $15 million guaranteed.
On September 4, 2010, unfortunately, the Seahawks released Houshmandzadeh.
Two days later,on September 6, 2010, Houshmanzadeh signed a 1 year deal with Baltimore Ravens for the veteran league minimum of $855,000. However, since his $7 million salary with the Seattle Seahawks was guaranteed in his previous contract, Seattle will pay him the remaining $6.15 million for 2010.
