Former NFL tight end Shannon Sharpe has had his share of experiences pursuing a perfect relationship. However, things have not always worked out for the three times Superbowl Champion.
Keep reading to explore more about Sharpe's past relationships, details about his three children, and his present relationship status.
Shannon Sharpe Has Had A Long Struggle When It Comes To Love
Over the years, the former Baltimore Ravens tight end has kept his personal life away from the public eye.
Still, there are a few things that fell through the cracks. One such instance can be dated back to 2010.
Sharpe was making headlines for a sexual assault case filed by ex-girlfriend Michelle Bundy. In time, the case was closed. Apparently, Bundy was accused of fabricating her claims against the retired footballer, possibly for some media mileage.
After maintaining radio silence for the better part of a decade, Sharpe made headlines again when he was linked to American fashion model Nicole Murphy in 2017.
Then again, the rumors died out the same year, as he got engaged to beautiful fitness instructor Katy Kellner from Atlanta, Georgia. Unfortunately, the couple's romance didn't last long either.
The news of their separation went public when Katy shared a picture on her Instagram in November 2018 flaunting her baby bump with the father of her baby—a fitness instructor named Marlon Byrd.

Needless to say, Pro Football Hall of Fame receiver has faced many struggles from past relationships. And at the age of 52, he seems to be living a single life. Still, one can hope he gets the love of his life and his perfect wife soon.
Shannon Sharpe Is a Father To Three Children
Despite his failed relationships, Shannon is the father to three children: daughters, Kayla and Kaley, and a son Kiari. All of his children are from his different relationships. Both his eldest daughter Kayla and only son Kiari are 28 years old, as of 2020.
According to Denverpost, the former footballer's son Kiari studied both biology and business management at Georgia Southern. His daughter Kayla studied pre-law at Georgia Southern, and Kaley attended the Florida State with the goal of becoming a medical examiner.
However, the children live with their respective moms in Georgia and Florida, and father Shannon visits them frequently.
Shannon Sharpe’s Bio: Family & Age Discussed
Sharpe was born on June 26, 1968, to a low-income family in Chicago, Illinois to father Pete Sharpe and mother Mary Alice Dixon.
His parents divorced when he was just 3 months old, and he was raised by his grandmother Mary Porter on a farm in rural Glenville, Georgia with his elder brother Sterling Sharpe and sister.
Amidst the difficult situations, he attended Glenville High School. He later joined Savannah State University in Georgia.
In the latter institute, he earned a BS degree in criminal justice in 1989—something his older brother Sterling Sharpe suggested. His older brother Sterling Sharpe is also a former American football wide receiver and a five-time all-pro receiver with the Green Bay Packers.
