Earlier this month, Ramos shared a glimpse of her and Prescott — who was named the 2022 Walter Payton Man of the Year — celebrating her 30th birthday. Mixed within an Instagram carousel, she included a photo of the pair enjoying a meal together. She also added a snap of her in the stands at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, taking in the on-field action while showing her team spirit in a blue and white Cowboys jacket.

"Entering a new decade with so much gratitude. I truly have everything I could wish for and have a feeling this next chapter will be the best one yet," she wrote in the caption, seemingly referring to her and Prescott's impending parenthood.
