Wife Of Notre Dame Legend Manti Te’o, Jovi, Goes Viral

Wife Of Notre Dame Legend Manti Te'o, Jovi, Goes Viral

Notre Dame legend Manti Te’o has one of the most unique stories in college football history.

As a member of the Fighting Irish, Manti Te’o was a unanimous All-American, Maxwell Award winner, Lott Trophy winner, Chuck Bednarik Award winner, Walter Camp Award winner, Bronko Nagurski Trophy winner, Butkus Award winner and Lombardi Award winner.

In addition, for a brief period of time, he was also considered a very legitimate Heisman candidate.

Unfortunately, the thing that Manti Te’o will forever be known for is an infamous catfishing scheme that rocked the sports world and eventually transcended into the general pop culture zeitgeist.

Even though Manti Te’o went on to have a decent, seven-year NFL career – he was never able to shed the specter of that catfishing incident.

One thing that many didn’t realize about Manti Te’o is that he is actually married now. He married his wife, Jovi Nicole Engbino, in La Jolla, California on August 29, 2020. The pair have been together ever since.

This week, after a documentary on Manti Te’o came out, Jovi went viral.

As did these Instagram photos of her:

Big picture, hopefully the entire Te’o family will one day be able to move past this catfishing situation.

As more and more details emerge, it is becoming increasingly clear that what happened wasn’t Manti Te’o’s fault.

Will he ever be able to get the peace he deserves after the trials and tribulations he went through?

One can only hope.
