Jacoby Ellsbury's marriage to wife Kelsey Hawkins
Jacoby is currently married to wife Kelsey Hawkins. Their relationship began back during their college years. They met during those days and starting dating as they felt very comfortable with each other.
Furthermore, by looks and physique, it is easy to assume that Jacoby is confident and could flirt with girls easily. However, according to sources, he is a very shy man and only was with one girl during his high school years before getting indulged with Kelsey. A shocker right?

Nonetheless, they were in a relationship for years until they decided to tie the knot around December of 2012. The pair did not share the information and tried to keep it as low key as possible. But fans being fans took no time to notice a giant ring on Kelsey's finger while she attended Red Sox Nation. Another hint was when she changed her surname on her social media accounts.
According to sources, their wedding took place in a private ceremony with close friends and family only. We are sure that some of Jacoby's teammates also attended the wedding.

After the birth of their first child, a daughter, who seem to be born around late 2015, mama Kelsey shared pictures of her via her Twitter.

His name or date of birth have not been specified, but the news about his delivery was all over the news and baseball player father missed 2-3 days of Yanks camp because of it. However, right after the birth of his son, he headed back to the camp and started doing what he had to do.
