Taylor Rooks Husband, Boyfriend, Family
Taylor Rooks is an inspiration to girls all over the world. She has managed to make a name in male-dominated sports journalism.
Not only did she establish herself in the field at such a young age, but also paved the way for other women who wish to pursue a career in sports journalism.
Despite her achievements, Taylor once ended up in a meme in 2018, when she interviewed NBA star, Dwyane Wade on her podcast-Timeout With Taylor Rooks. A photo of Taylor in a fitting outfit and Dwayne trying very hard, not to look at her went viral on Twitter with the caption,
"Dwyane Wade has played in 5 NBA Finals but none of which had more pressure than this right here"
But Taylor, being a smart woman, took those memes very lightly and said that Dwyane was very professional during the interview
Taylor Rooks was born on 22 May 1992 in St. Louis, Missouri to Thomas Rooks and Stephanie Rooks. She comes from a family of athletes. Her father, Thomas was a former football player, and she is the niece of the Hall of Famer, outfielder, Lou Brock. It was probably her family's sports background that motivated Taylor to pursue a career in sports journalism.

Taylor graduated from Peachtree Ridge high school in 2010 and attended the University of Illinois- where she earned her Bachelor's degree in Broadcast Journalism.
During her time at the college, she covered and broke the story on football/basketball recruiting scandal while working with scout.com. That story initially opened her doors in sports journalism by gaining her internships in Sports Net Chicago and Fox Sports.
Today, she has networks like Big Ten Network and SportsNet NewYork in her resume.
There is no denying that the 27 years old reporter is a gorgeous lady and has many admirers. However, her dating life has seen some ups and downs.
In 2018, she was reportedly dating Grey's Anatomy star, Jesse Williams. Taylor and Jesse were pictured together for the first time in June 2018, while on a dinner date.
Interestingly, when the couple was in the relationship, 36-years old, Jesse was in an ongoing divorce battle with his wife, Aryn Drake-Lee. Although Jesse had already separated from his wife, he was still technically a married guy at that time. So the couple tried to maintain their relationship, a hush-hush affair.
However, the relationship was short-lived as The Cabin in the Woods actor went on to date dancer and actress Taylour Paige at the beginning of 2019.

After her short-lived relationship with Jesse, at the beginning of 2019, Taylor got linked to NFL star, Odell Beckham Jr.

It was reported that the two had known each other for years and eventually decided to give romance a try. However, no confirmation came from Taylor herself.
As of 2019, Taylor's dating affair and alleged boyfriend remains a secret. However, the young reporter is undoubtedly keeping her dating life low-key. Maybe, Taylor will introduce her man to the world when she is ready to call him husband.
