Chiefs Kicker Harrison Butker, Wife Isabelle’s Relationship Timeline


Kansas City Chiefs player Harrison Butker found his No. 1 cheerleader in wife Isabelle Butker, whom he wed in 2018.

“We met in high school,” Harrison said of his spouse during a January 2023 appearance on the “Kansas City Mom Collective” podcast. “A lot changes with Division I football, playing in the NFL, but she’s been by my side through everything.”

Although Harrison is in the limelight as the Chiefs’ kicker — he made the team’s game-winning field goal during Super Bowl LVII in February 2023 — the Butkers have managed to keep their family out of the spotlight.

While the Butkers keep their personal lives private, fans have still gotten glimpses of Harrison and Isabelle’s two children over the years when the Chiefs have won the Super Bowl. Their son, James, joined Harrison on the field after the team’s 2020 win, while his daughter, whose name and birthday have not been revealed, enjoyed the celebrations in 2023.

Harrison proposed to Isabelle one month after he was drafted into the NFL by the Carolina Panthers. He was signed to the Chiefs in September of that year.

May 2023

The football player spoke about the importance of love while giving a commencement speech at the Georgia Institute of Technology. “This is the most important ring I have right here,” Harrison said while pointing to his wedding band. “My confidence as a husband and father, and yes, even as a football player is rooted in my marriage with my wife, as we leave our mark on future generations by the children we bring into the world. How much greater of a legacy can anyone leave than that?”

He added: “In the end, no matter how much money you attain, none of it will matter if you are alone and devoid of purpose. … I can offer one controversial antidote that I believe will have a lasting impact for generations to come: get married and start a family.”

May 2024

Harrison made headlines after giving a commencement speech at Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas. While singling out the female graduates, the football player offered a shout-out to his wife.

“How many of you are sitting here now, about to cross this stage, and are thinking about all the promotions and titles you are going to get in your career?” he asked the women. “Some of you may go on to lead successful careers in the world but I would venture to guess that the majority of you are most excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into this world.”

Talking about his wife specifically, Harrison noted that Isabelle would be the “first to say that her life truly started when she began living her vocation as a wife and as a mother.” He further discussed her impact on his life.

“I’m beyond blessed with the many talents God has given me but it cannot be overstated that all of my success is made possible because a girl I met in band class back in middle school would convert to the faith and become my wife and embrace one of the most important titles of all — homemaker,” he added.
