LEGENDARY Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana recently told of foiling an attempt to kidnap his grandchild at his Malibu home.
But who is his wife Jennifer who wrangled the baby out of the hands of the accused kidnaper’s arms?
Who is Joe Montana’s wife Jennifer?
Jennifer, 61, is a former actress and model.
Born in 1958, Jennifer appeared in a number of commercials and appeared in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit and films.
Most notably she starred as Miss Lisa in the television series Adventures with Kanga Roddy in 1998.
She currently works as jewellery designer and owns Jennifer Montana Design.
Most recently, she and her husband helped stop an unknown woman who tried to kidnap their 9-month-old grandchild on Saturday evening, September 26.
They told cops the baby was sleeping in a playpen around 5 p.m. on Saturday when a strange woman snuck into the home and tried to nab the child
Montana, often referred to by his nickname Joe Cool, tried to “de-escalate the situation” with his wife Jennifer and asked the woman to hand over the baby.
Jennifer then wrangled the baby out of the hands of the accused kidnaper, 39-year-old Sodsai Dalzell, cops said.
“A tussle ensued and Mrs. Montana was able to safely pry the child out of the suspect’s arms,” according to a police statement reported by the New York Times.
According to the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department the intruder entered the Montanas’ home and attempted to kidnap his nine-month-old grandchild.
“Deputies patrolling the Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station were flagged down in the City of Malibu by a man they recognized as Mr. Joe Montana,” police said.
“Mr. Montana stated an unknown female had just entered his residence, kidnapped his grandchild, then fled the location without the child.”
How long have the couple been married for?
The couple met while working together on a Schick razor commercial and married in 1985.
In an interview with Yahoo, Jennifer revealed that Joe initially asked her marry him on a check in a restaurant.
She recalled he wrote “Jen, what would you say if I asked you to spend the rest of your life with me?”
Joe made the question official when he asked one of a plane pilot to fly with a banner that read, “Jen, Will you marry me?”
They have been married for 35 years.
Do the couple have any children?
Joe and Jennifer have four children.
Their children range in age from 35 to 28 years old.
