Ryan, their oldest, and his wife, Casey are both Auburn graduates. They also have a daughter, Paige and soon-to-be son-in-law, Matt, who are also Auburn graduates.

She is also quite fond of her two pint-sized Yorkshire terriers, Lexie and Scout who she claims are the additional children her husband refused to have.
