How Troy Aikman Found Love With His Wife Following Divorce

From Country Living

  • Troy Aikman and his first wife Rhonda Worthey split in 2011.

  • Troy was a single dad for years until he started dating Catherine "Capa" Mooty in 2016.

  • The two married in 2017, and share a beautiful blended family consisting of his two daughters from his former marriage, and her two sons.

For Troy Aikman and his wife Catherine, finding each other was a second chance at love. Now the couple and their four children are a real-life Brady Brunch. Troy brought two daughters to the marriage, and Catherine brought two sons.

The Hall of Fame Cowboys quarterback was married from 2000 to 2011 to his ex-wife, Rhonda Worthey, and the former couple share two daughters together, Jordan (born 2001) and Alexa (born 2002).

Troy, 54, was single for more than five years until he met Catherine, who goes by "Capa," in early 2016. Capa was a single mom in the Dallas area who previously opened a mobile fashion boutique in a revamped truck. (Think a food truck but with bangles and pumps.)

Capa has two high-school aged sons, Luke and Val. The boys’ grandmother is the sister of Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones. (Talk about a small world—Troy played for the Cowboys from 1989 to 2000 and won his three Super Bowl championships with the team!)

The couple got engaged in June 2017 in Lake Como, Italy and married three months later in a small ceremony in Santa Barbara, California, according to People.

Troy had previously been quiet about his personal life. But after marrying Capa, he started sharing his newfound happiness on social media. On their second wedding anniversary, Troy posted a photo of the couple on Instagram with the caption: “I love you. I love us. I love our family. Happy anniversary to the ❤ of my life! 🎈”

On social media, Troy also refers to their family of six as #teamsix. The close knit family is very supportive of each other. The four children all attend the same private school in Dallas, and Troy even coaches his stepson’s high school football team!

Troy had previously thought about coaching his daughters in sports but he worried that he’d push them too hard. “I just want to be Dad,” He told GQ in 2012. But with his stepson Val’s team, there was an easy solution—Troy could be the quarterbacks coach.

Troy typically helps at practices on Tuesday and Wednesday nights. He attends Friday night games, but he’s busy on Thursdays and Sundays as an announcer for NFL football on Fox.

When they aren’t cheering in the stands, the Aikman family is outdoors. They enjoy hiking and paddle boarding together. Even though they are busy with four teenagers, Troy and Capa make time to connect just the two of them. Earlier this year, the couple went on an African safari. In 2018, they went to Hawaii.

Where to next?!
