Who is Angela Akins?

Angela Akins was born in Texas in 1985.

She is the daughter of former Texas Longhorns quarterback Marty Akins and cousin of New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees.

Angela has worked as a golf reporter for Fox Sports Southwest and moved to Florida after landing a job on the Golf Channel.

It was through her role at the Golf Channel that she met Garcia.

Garcia is not her first husband as she was previously married to former golfer Ross Hamann.

She's a keen golfer herself, having played for the women's team at the University of Texas.

Angela plays off a handicap of three.

When did Angela Akins marry Sergio Garcia?

Sergio Garcia announced his engagement to Angela Akins in January 2017 and topped it off with victory in the Dubai Desert Classic a few months later.

The couple wed in Texas on July 29, 2017.

Love seems to suit the 42-year-old who was previously known to be the most talented golfer to never win a Major.

But since meeting Angela, Garcia has broken his Majors duck and proudly donned the famous Green Jacket.

He had finished runner-up twice in the Open, and has also chalked up eight other top ten finishes.

Garcia got his only Major win at the Masters in April 2017.

The couple have a daughter, Azalea Adele, born on March 14, 2018. Their first son, Enzo Akins Garca, was born on April 10, 2020.
