We tried to play it cool when former Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings stopped by the photo studio where we were shooting his wife Nicole for the June issue of Mpls.St.Paul Magazine. He pulled out his phone to snap photos from the sidelines, smiling broadly as Nicole worked the camera. But there was a palpable electricity in the air—beyond their obvious affection for each other.
Jennings was on his phone and then whispering to his wife who told us they were going to have to head to Baltimore that evening. We lifestyle editors managed to infer that meant Jennings was meeting with the Ravens about joining the team. We had the scoop! But by the time our shoot wrapped later that day, the news broke that Jennings had signed with the Miami Dolphins.
“I’m so glad we found out before we got on that plane!” Nicole told me later. Our team was just so honored to have spent part of that pivotal day with the Jennings—and to know that a mere hour or two before inking a two-year deal with the Dolphins, Jennings was dutifully hanging his wife’s dresses and carrying her bags. And that's what makes him our MVP!
We’re also glad that the Jennings plan to keep the Twin Cities as home base—they are good people who make our community better. To that end, read all about Nicole Jennings’ designer consignment business, The Posh Mommy, in the June issue of Mpls.St.Paul Magazine.
