Meet Samaria Jefferson, Van Jefferson Wife
Samaria and Van Jefferson are high school sweethearts.2
According to Samaria, the football star first asked her to be his girlfriend on September 19, 2014, while they were still in high school. The two then welcomed their first child named Bella on June 23, 2016, but sadly broke up soon after.
“It was the toughest, longest breakup,” Samaria recalled. Though she didn’t share details on how or why they split, Samaria looked up to the bright side and said, “To 7 years later, and that 16-year-old HS girlfriend is now a wife and mother to our second child together.”
Talking about their second child, Samaria and Van welcomed their baby boy on February 17, 2021 — a little ahead of the due date. Since the day was so special to Van, Samaria was praying to god that her “water doesn’t break.”
Ahead of Super Bowl LVI, Samaria shared in an interview, “I am 100 percent going to be there. I would not miss this moment for anything. I will be 40 weeks pregnant at the Super Bowl, supporting my husband 100 percent.”
Well, they say when you worry about things you don’t want to happen, you trigger your subconscious mind to create actions and circumstances in you that result in you getting what you don’t want. Guess, that’s what happened.
During the game, Samaria left the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles on a stretcher after going into labor. Reportedly, she asked the staff not to tell her husband if she went into labor.
Later, filled with happiness, Van took it to his IG live to share he won three prizes that day — his wife, son, and the Super Bowl!

Samaria Jefferson Job
Samaria Jefferson is a supermom and a homemaker.
For her, “motherhood” has become “stability” — “whether it be mental, financial or just lifestyle stability, has completely been forgotten about,” she explained.
But it’s not easy! And every mother knows it. So, Samaria wants other moms to understand that “it’s ok, if ’s a mess behind closed doors.” Sometimes even she forgets that she has a little one looking up to her — “some days I just do not enjoy being a mother. Some days I don’t want to feel “held back”, I don’t want to be exhausted!”
And when that happens, she does everything to gain stability. No wonder, the bond between Samaria and her children is perfect.
Guess, we can label her job to be a “perfect mom.”
