Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker has sung his family’s praises through the years.

“Growing up my mom was my biggest supporter, guiding me to be the man I needed to become,” Harrison wrote in a May 2020 Mother’s Day tribute shared via X by the Kansas City Chiefs. “Now, I’m so blessed to have my beautiful wife by my side. To witness first hand the amazing mother she is to our son and the many sacrifices she has made for our family is something I will cherish forever.”

During his May 2024 controversial (and viral) commencement speech at Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas, Harrison gave a nod to his wife, Isabelle Butker. In the message, he said 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.”

“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.

Isabelle Butker

Harrison and Isabelle began dating in high school. After they started their relationship, Isabelle converted to Harrison’s religion, Catholicism.

“I had a moment one day where I was asking God, you know, ‘OK, I need you to show me, you know, what is right. What is the right path? Like, do I go this way or do I go with what Harrison’s doing?’” she said during a May 2019 interview with EWTN. “It’s weird. In that moment, I actually felt like I was physically being embraced,” Isabelle added, “and we were at mass at the time, and that was kind of the moment when I decided I want to be Catholic.”

In May 2017, he popped the question to Isabelle, and the pair tied the knot the following year.
“A lot changes with Division I football, playing in the NFL, but she’s been by my side through everything,” Harrison said during a January 2023 appearance on the “Kansas City Mom Collective” podcast.
