Shelley met her husband Urban while she was a nursing student at the University of Cincinnati. Urban, who at that time was a sophomore student at the same school, was introduced to Shelley at a fraternity/sorority/Kentucky Derby party in May 1984.
After dating for five long years, the couple exchanged their vows and officially married in July 1989.
Having earned her degree in psychiatric nursing, Shelley became the “surrogate” mother of Urban’s football team. She takes care of the entire team and makes sure that their motherly needs are addressed.
Urban and Shelly are proud parents of three lovely children: Nicole, Gisela and Nate.
