She spent her intial year in real estate managing properties at the Ballpark in Arlington and selling houses to professional athletes.
Married To Stephen Strasburg
Strasburg and Lackey were college sweethearts: they met while attending San Diego State University. It's not clear who approached first but the duo dated for 18 months before Strasberg popped the question. They married basically right out of school. Their wedding ceremony was held on 9th January 2010 near Strasburg’s San Diego home. The bride wore a strapless white lace gown; her bridesmaids wore fuchsia.
Due to the wedding, her husband got a pass to skip out on his first batch of offseason publicity appearances to accommodate the wedding and subsequent honeymoon to Hawaii. Further, Strasburg missed out on Nationals Rookie Career Development Program,
Winter Caravan and Natsfest. General manager Stan Kasten was quick to defend the decision. He said to the Washington Post, “He was really disappointed to miss Fanfest, but personal stuff takes precedent, obviously. He’s already committed to attending next year’s Fanfest.”
Mother Of Two
In October 2013, Lackey and her husband welcomed their first child, a daughter. After the birth of little baby girl, Reagan, Strasburg talked about how his priorities changed.
He said, “The priority of being a good dad is more important to me. I think looking back, maybe I did put a little too much emphasis on baseball. Maybe it wasn’t my only thing I was worried about. But it was definitely higher up there than I thought it was.”
Their second daughter was born in April 2017.
Resides In Washington
After Strasburg re-signed a 7 year / $245,000,000 contract with the Washington Nationals, he scored a house in Washington. However, details about the real estate property are yet to discloed. Back in 2019, the couple listed their San Diego estate (Spanish-style bungalow) for $1.325 million which features a four-bedroom, five-bathroom.
