Whether athletes like it or not, many of them have earned celebrity status and fans have gained an interest in their private lives, especially with the Rio Olympics in full swing. Case in point – Allyson Felix, the American track and field star. While she is focused on winning the gold medal in the events that she is participating in, people are speculating on her personal life. What everybody wants to know is, “Is Kenneth Ferguson, Allyson Felix’s husband?” A little while back, there were rumors that Felix is pregnant! So, people are now asking, “Are Kenneth Ferguson and Allyson Felix married?” Don’t worry, we will tell you all about it here!
No Baby Right Now
Allyson Felix is competing in the 100m, 200m, and 400m, as well as in the women’s relay events at this year’s Olympics. Since the pregnancy rumors have started making their rounds, people are concerned that Felix is participating in such strenuous events. However, these rumors are not yet confirmed and neither is Felix saying anything. What is confirmed is that Kenneth Ferguson is an important part of Felix’s life, and has been for a long time. That’s right! Ferguson has been Felix’s boyfriend for several years now, and though they are not yet officially married, they are as close as two people could be.
The Lesser Known Half
Though Felix is known all over the world, Ferguson is not so well known. He is also a sprinter who runs the 400m, the 110m and the 400m hurdles. He made a big splash in 2003, when he won gold medals in the 110m and 400m hurdles at the Pan American Junior Athletics Championships. He won the gold medal in the 4x400m relay, as well. However, Ferguson has not lived up to his early promise as he has not made it to the senior level of athletics.
Declaring His Love
Felix’s boyfriend Ferguson is 6’1” tall and is 32 years old. He is from Detroit, Michigan, U.S.A. He is very understanding and has no problem with the fact that Felix is the bigger star. He has been very supportive over the years and Felix relies on him heavily for emotional support. Ferguson openly expresses his love for Felix on social media. Recently he tweeted, “Still speechless as I sit here in the stadium! So proud of you. God is good.”
No Dirty Linen
The amazing thing about this couple is that there have never been reports of any problems between them. Every couple goes through bad times but Felix and Ferguson have never seemed to hit a rough patch. Although they are not married, they live like a ‘committed married couple.’ How refreshing! In these times of 15 minute relationships, a couple like this is a rarity.
Passion for Sports
Ferguson is very passionate about sports. He has been working hard to get young people to participate in sports, so that they have some interest and direction in their lives. Recently, he has been working on a campaign to get youngsters to take part in the Junior Olympics. Ferguson also loves bowling and he and Felix team up to take part in local championships. They are members of a team called, ‘The Four By Four,’ which plays in Santa Clarita, California.
Playing It Cool
While Felix will be under the spotlight at Rio, her life with Ferguson will also be under scrutiny. Ferguson will handle all this attention in his usual calm, patient and dignified manner. So, it seems all the tabloids will be forced to return home empty handed. Meanwhile, Felix and Ferguson will continue to be one of the star couples to look out for at the 2016 Rio Olympics!
