Lauren Holiday close-knit family of four resettled to Milwaukee from New Orleans in November 2020.
His husband, Jrue Holiday, joined the Milwaukee Bucks from the New Orleans Pelicans just a few weeks after the birth of their second child, a boy named Hendrix. They now reside in a house with a basement in Milwaukee.
Her daughter Jrue Tyler (J.T.), has always expressed a desire to reside in a home with a basement; hence, while the family was looking for a new home, they eliminated all of the houses that did not have basements from their search.
The 35-year-old mother of two posted a picture of her family from their new home in Milwaukee on Thanksgiving day in 2020. “From our family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!”
The family also founded and now oversees “Jrue and Lauren Holiday Social Impact Fund,” a social fund established with the purpose of helping small aid businesses of the minors unduly impaired by the Covid pandemic.
Lauren Holiday, born on September 30, 1987, in Indianapolis, Indiana, to her parents, George and Rita Cheney, started playing soccer from an early age with her brother. Her family supported her in every career step until she turned pro.
Holiday overcame a physical challenge and a heart problem when she was a child, and she went on to win a world championship with the U.S. national team in 2015. Moreover, Lauren earned two Olympic gold medals and accomplished a rare double by being named the U.S. Soccer Young Player Athlete of the Year and the Female Player of the Year.
Lauren was a part of the F.C. Kansas City team that won back-to-back championships in the National Women’s Soccer League. The Dynamo, 5 feet 8 inches tall, earned the NWSL MVP award and the Golden Boot in 2013.
After ascending to the pinnacle of the women’s soccer world in 2015 at the age of 27, she decided to call it quits at the peak of her game so that she could begin a family and devote herself to issues that were important to her.
She was greeted by her family, including her mother Rita, as they surprised Lauren while she was at the Bucks’ practice facility. She was totally unaware of her name being inducted into the 2023 class of the Hall of Fame by National Soccer.
