"I hope when the first actively gay baseball player comes out, he's a superstar. We need a Jackie Robinson style earth shaker."

However, for Gabe himself, this is not a matter that he speaks for himself. He is straight and has also been married once to his girlfriend.

Life After Marriage

Gabe married his girlfriend, his high school sweetheart Lisa Jansen in 1998. This was the time around when his career was at its all peak, and seemingly so was his personal life. 

The two gave birth to two sons, Chase Ty Kapler and Dane Rio Kapler. However, their relationship ended publicly when they filed for divorce back in 2013 after almost 14 years of marriage. 

Since his divorce, Gabe has not been associated with anyone and seems to be enjoying his single life, along with his two sons. 

His sons seem to be growing up quick, and they sure are extremely attractive, 

Hmm, we wonder where it came from... 

And the most exciting part of it all, both of his sons seem to have followed in his footsteps.

His son Chase Kapler graduated from Malibu High School and has actively played high school football in two football teams covered by MaxPreps.

His other son, Fane, also played for Ventura High. Well, it seems like they look up to their father more than we know, and it is only a matter of time when the Kepler name starts ringing on the fields as it did decades ago.
