The Seahawks released a statement with Wilson’s consent saying, “I have made the difficult decision to file for divorce. Clearly, decisions like these don’t come easy. Ashton and I respectfully ask for prayers, understanding and privacy during this difficult time. Moving forward, I will have no further comment on this personal matter.”
The two met in high school and attented NC State together. Ashton was with Wilson when he received the phone call from the Seahawks notifying him they were drafting him in the third round of the 2012 NFL draft, and became a viral sensation for her reaction.
Wilson is one of the more popular players in the NFL and one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL after helping lead the Seahawks to the Super Bowl in his second season.
