Kate Downey-Edwards (wife of Carl Edwards)
In 2009, Carl Edwards married one Dr. Katherine Downey. Clearly, she’s no “run-of-the-mill WAG,” considering she was a professor with a medical degree, who worked as a physician helping to rehab patients with severe and traumatic brain injuries. They now have two children together: a daughter, Annie, who was born in 2010, and a son, Michael, who was born 14 months later in 2011. In January of 2017, Edwards shocked the racing community last month when he announced he was stepping out of Cup racing, and wanted to devote more time to his wife and children. While the door is open for his return to the sport, there’s currently no plans for him to do so.
