Spencer Paysinger, the inspiration behind the sports drama series All American, is a happily married man. 

The former American football linebacker is married to Blair Paysinger, a graphic designer, and entrepreneur. She is the creator of Post 21, an online shopping platform, and co-owner of Hilltop Coffee and Kitchen, a restaurant franchise located at View Park-Windsor Hills, Inglewood, and Glassell Park.

A Dream Wedding At Palm Springs

The two, who know each other since high school, have been married for nearly five years now. They tied the knot on a destination wedding at California’s Palm Springs in La Quinta Resort on May 27, 2016.

Their wedding saw the bride flaunt a modern two-piece gown, a Chantilly lace crop top, and a silk organza skirt, while the groom complimented Blair with his custom green suit and white shirt with a vintage pearl tie bar and suede loafers.

The presence of the couple’s family and close friends had enhanced the beauty of the wedding. More so, Blair’s mother added the cherry on the cake when she rewrote the lyrics to ‘Real Good Hands,’ which were sung for the bride’s processional into the courtyard.

The highlight of the wedding was a playlist of ’90s R & B jams, a family-style feast of blackened catfish with crawfish étouffée, five naked cakes in three different flavors, and giant Jenga blocks.

Impressed with her wedding planning, Blair said, “We chose ‘Love on Top’ by Beyoncé because every time it comes on in the car, we both jam!”

It was the biggest surprise of the day...This is now one of our favorite features in our home and a constant reminder of our wedding.

Blair’s Instagram Is A Family Album

Their last wedding anniversary, in May 2020, saw them celebrating their 4th, and on that occasion, the All America star’s wife took to Instagram. In her post, she first addressed the demanding situations created by the COVID-19 pandemic and then expressed that she and her husband Spencer were safe with each other’s support and love.

Her caption read, “We are not safe in the streets or in our homes. But know in me you are safe, you are loved, you are protected, and you are prayed over. 4 years today. #lovepays.”

Similarly, on her recent Instagram post, Blair posted a candid picture of hers and Spencer while writing, “You are the EVERYTHING I was made to believe was asking too much.”

The couple is also blessed with two adorable children: Cairo and Madden. Cairo celebrated her second birthday on May 15, 2019, while Madden celebrated his first in July 2020.

'All American' is based on Spencer's Career

Spencer has recently gathered huge media attention because his life and career served as an inspiration to the 2018’s The CW series All American. Netflix acquired the series in 2021, which brought more focus on the former sportsman’s life.

The series follows the real-life events of Spencer [the character’s name in the series is Spencer James] with fictional inputs.

Moreover, the California native has also starred in the series in a minor role of an assistant football coach at Beverly Hills High and has lent his hands as a consulting producer.
