Trent Shelton’s short-lived NFL career included bouncing between teams and free agency. But since retiring, he’s become an inspiration to countless people as a motivational speaker and the founder of RehabTime. And he credits his success to his wife, Maria Castro Shelton. An influencer herself, Maria has supported Trent’s career all the way while balancing motherhood and her other passions. She is deserving of the spotlight in this Maria Castro wiki.

Maria Shelton and Trent Shelton’s Relationship and Children

Former NFL player Trent Shelton and his then-girlfriend Maria Castro welcomed their first child together, a boy named Tristan, on September 25, 2008. The couple got engaged in 2015 and shared the news in a video with their son.

Shelton and Castro married on October 11, 2015, and shared another video of their special day. Little Tristan was a dashing scene-stealer at his parents’ wedding.

They welcomed their second child, a girl they named Maya, on July 7, 2016. Their youngest daughter, Marlee, was born on September 17, 2019.

Young Maya recently had a health scare that also concerned Trent’s followers. The motivational speaker took to his social media to ask for thoughts and prayers for their daughter Maya, who had to be rushed into PICU on March 9, 2021. In a separate post, Maria shared the family’s belief that Maya would pull through.

Maya was discharged on March 12, and made a complete recovery. While the family didn’t provide any details about what was ailing her, Maria mentioned that their daughter’s condition was the result of an “accident” and she needed breathing tubes during the hospital stay.

The lack of details was the least of their followers’ concerns. They were ecstatic for Maya’s recovery and for the Shelton family as a whole.
