Layla Kiffin Came Into The Limelight After Her Marriage With Lane Kiffin

Lane and Layla married in 2000 after knowing each other for a year. She first met her then-husband Lane in 1999 when he had just finished two years as a graduate assistant at Fresno State.

Kiffin was on his way to Colorado State University as a graduate assistant when he made a pit stop at Tampa to visit his dad. Layla was running the special- event for the Buccaneers when he stepped inside. She knew who he was and thought that she had to be nice to him. He was able to win her over and within three months of their first meet, they were engaged.

Layla’s father, John Reaves once said in the interview that he remembered Lane coming into his office to ask for his daughter’s hand for marriage. He remembered saying how they had just been dating for around four weeks. Kiffin replied, ” I don’t care, I know what I want, she’s what I want.” That was the start of their bond.

Layla Shares Three Kids With The Football Coach

The Kiffin couple were happy in their relationship for several years with their three children, Landry, Pressley, and Monte. After a few years of their marriage, they welcomed their first child, Landry Kiffin in 2005. Within two years of having a daughter, they gave birth to Pressley Kiffin in 2007. Monte Knox Kiffin joined the club in 2009.

Even though the former couple is divorced, they maintain a mutual understanding of the kids. Their separation has hardly affected their bond with the children. Their son, Monte is now a teenager and is training to be a quarterback with his dad. As for their daughters, the little girls have now grown into stunning ladies.

How Was Their Married Life?

The ex-couple was happiest in their marriage for the first few years. Layla always supported her husband’s career and whenever he was away for his work, she would take full responsibility for her family.

They were always moving because of Lane’s work. The family of five moved into a lakeside home in West Knoxville after their son was born to stay close to their parents. They were happiest there as the kids loved to live near the water. Layla would often cook pasta for her kids and Chicken Parmesan for her hubby as it was their favorite dish.

Even though the couple couldn’t spend much time together due to Lane’s work commitments, they would go out for dinner dates whenever they had time. Likewise, they spent Friday night watching TV at home.

Layla And Lane Called It Quits After Over A Decade Of Being Married

The ex-couple split back in February 2016 but officially divorced in March 2016. They settled for joint legal custody of their kids but primary custody went to Layla with her ex-husband getting visitation. The coach broke the news by saying,

After a lot of careful thought and consideration, Layla and I have mutually decided to divorce, We are fully committed to our kids’ future being our No. 1 priority. We will maintain an amicable relationship with respect for each other as we raise these three wonderful children.

Though they said it was a mutual breakup due to irreconcilable differences, there are rumors that the reason was Lane’s affair with the daughter of his head coach. Back in 2015, he was believed to be in a relationship with Kristen Saban, daughter of Nick Saban. Even though he denied such allegations, people still believe that the split was because of Lane’s cheating.

Did Lyla Kiffin Get Married Again?

The 49-year-old is reportedly single. After her divorce in 2016, she has gone private with her personal life. Looks like Layla has her hands full with her children and doesn’t have time for dating. Over these years, she hasn’t appeared in public with any man.

Unlike Layla who is rumored to be single right now, her ex-partner, Lane seems to be happily dating Sally Rychlak. He even posted her picture with the caption, ” Happy #NationalGirlfriendDay.”

Her Parents Got Divorce When She Was Young

Layla was born on January 3, 1974, to the late Thomas Johnson Reaves and Patti, who parted ways when she was small. Her parents were having troubles in their marriage but kept trying for their children. The former couple got divorced in 2000 and Johnson took the responsibility to raise the kids.

Her father was a former quarterback for the league and was an assistant football coach after his retirement. As for her mother, she was a model back in her days. She even won Flordia Citrus Queen in 1967.

Talking about her siblings, she grew up with two brothers, Stephen Reaves and David Reaves. Her younger brother, Stephen is a former professional Canadian football quarterback. After he retired from the league, he was a coaching intern for the Oakland Raiders and Toronto Argonauts.

Likewise, her brother, David is working as Co-offensive Coordinator in South Florida. He has also worked with his sister’s ex-husband previously for the University of Tennesee in Knoxville.

She Was A Cheerleader In High School

Talking about her education, Layla went to Buchholz High School, Gainesville where she was a cheerleader. She then joined the University of Florida for her further education.

After graduating in 1997, she started working as an event planner. Her work as an event planner is how she met John. Although she enjoyed her work, she couldn’t imagine choosing her career over her kids.  However, after her divorce from the head coach, she didn’t continue her job on the same path but instead founded a gift company named “Pinched” with a vision to spread kindness to others.
