Libby Schuring and Darin Ruf’s Relationship and Kids
Darin Ruf was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, where he attended Westside High School. The star of the school baseball team met and dated fellow Westside student Libby Schuring there.
They were going strong in a four-year long-distance relationship when Schuring left for Kansas, and Ruf attended Creighton University and played in the minor leagues from 2009 to 2011. During that time, they mutually decided to see where Ruf’s professional athletic career went while it was Schuring’s job paying the bills. So even when his career was rising, she couldn’t take time off work and accompany him to games.
The outfielder accompanied the Schurings on a family vacation to Costa Rica in early 2011. It was there that he proposed to Libby Schuring.
The high school sweethearts married on December 3, 2011. Shortly after, Ruf was pulled up to the main Phillies roster.
On November 5, 2015, Libby Schuring gave birth to their first child, their son Henry. They later moved to South Korea, where Ruf played for the Samsung Lions. Henry attended a Korean language school and was introduced to as many diverse cultures as possible by his parents.
In 2020, the family returned to the U.S. shortly before the pandemic brought sports seasons to a halt. The couple’s daughter, Olive, was born on March 27, 2020.
