Nina Altuve (Jose Altuve)
Giannina Altuve — more commonly known as “Nina Altuve” (per the tradition of Latin American individuals shortening their name) — is the wife of Jose Altuve of the Houston Astros, the presumptive favorite for the 2017 American League MVP award.
Like her husband, Giannina hails from Venezuela — a big reason the two of them have been dating since they were teenagers (they describe themselves as high school sweethearts). In October of 2016, the couple welcomed their first child together: a daughter named Melanie Andrea. They will celebrate their 11th anniversary of being together when Altuve and the Astros play in the 2017 World Series.
