Who is Vince’s wife, Bianca Wilfork?
Former NFL star Vince Wilfork is married to Bianca, who he credits for his success. As reported by Heavy, Bianca and Vince met on social media platform blackplanet.com in 2001. They started talking and realised they both lived in Florida. Vince was a freshman at the University of Miami, while Bianca was working two jobs to support her son, D’Aundre.
Still going strong after two decades, Vince even credits Bianca for helping to make his NFL career a success. Bianca handled the business side of his career, arranging meetings, scheduling calls with agents, and even speaking to professors during the NFL star’s university days.
Bianca once told Boston.com: “I don’t feel (Vince) can enjoy football if he has to worry about all the other things – appearances, contracts, bills being paid – that stem from what he does. If he has to worry about that stuff, it takes away from what he does.”
As well as managing her husband’s sporting career, Bianca achieved an online associate’s degree from the University of Phoenix.
