Jeff Gordon’s unsuccessful married life
Forty-five years old retired stock car racing driver Jeff was first married to former Miss Winston Brooke Sealey Gordon in the year 1994. They first met in February 1993 and started dating secretly because of unspoken rules that discouraged them from dating. When Sealey’s reign as Miss Winston ended, Jeff proposed her in February at the 1994 Daytona 500.

The pair got married later the same year. Jeff and Sealey were bound in a marital relationship for eight years.
However, Jeff and Brooke went through a very public and ugly divorce in 2003, which is one of the most expensive divorces in the history of the sports. Their divorce was settled for $15.3 million where Sealey first requested two cars, alimony, couple’s boat and an airplane.
Talking about the divorce, Gordon said-
“Brooke and I had a high-profile relationship, and we had to. We got a lot of attention, and we had to adjust our lives and what we did and how we went about it because of that.”
Several years after separating with Gordon, Sealey gave birth to James Dixon II’s child and gave Gordon’s last name which was very inappropriate.
Beginning of a new Married life
After a failed married life, Jeff again fell in love with the former actress and supermodel Ingrid Vandebosch. Jeff met Ingrid through mutual friends in the year 2002.
After knowing each other for four years, the pair tied the knot in Mexico in a very private wedding ceremony. The couple now shares two children together; a daughter Ella Sophia and a son Leo Benjamin.
Gordon and his wife are usually spotted together in different events. He also shares images of his wife and children on various social media.
On April 28, 2017, Gordon shared a picture of him with his wife and children where he praised the creativity and designing skills of his wife.
Meanwhile, in 2014, there was a rumor about Gordon being a gay and his affair with another male race car driver; however, the rumor was later proved to be false. Gordon and Ingrid are now living happily with their kids and have no signs of divorce. We hope that this pair enjoys a blissful married life for rest of their lives.
