She Is Addison Russell’s Ex-wife
Addison Russell is a professional baseball infielder for the Chicago Cubs in Major League Baseball.
Reidy and Russell met each other in Pensacola, Florida, which is the baseball player’s hometown.
When the couple was engaged, Reidy gave birth to Russell’s child. Their son, Aiden Kai Margallo Russell, was born on August 25, 2015.
Several months later, Reidy and Russell got married on January 9, 2016. Their marriage was registered in Pensacola, Florida.
The Downfall of Their Marriage
In June 2017, Russell was accused of allegedly abusing Reidy. Two weeks after the allegations surfaced, Reidy filed for divorce.
Thomas T. Field was Reidy’s attorney. He said the reason behind their divorce was that they were “not getting along anymore and having differing opinions on how their marriage should proceed.”
At the time of the divorce, Reidy was seeking sole custody of their child. It was mentioned in the documents filed that Russell had little interest in the care of their son.
She was also seeking child and spousal support from Russell.
In June 2017, Russell stated that the allegations made against him were false and hurtful. The MLB was investigating the case, but Reidy refused to sit down with the investigators. She wanted the divorce to be as swift and civil as possible.
Reidy went public with the abuse claims because she was facing tremendous pressure from the media, as well as her friends and family, to talk about the incidents. So, her counsel spoke on her behalf.
Their divorce was finalized in August 2018.

On September 21, 2018, Reidy posted a blog where she wrote about the alleged abuse and mistreatment in their marriage at the hands of Russell.
After the blog went viral, Russell was placed on administrative leave by the MLB.

The blog post is titled, “you no longer have a secret, you have a story.”
