Olympic Gold Medalist and UT Longhorn track star Sanya Richards-Ross retired last year, and now she and her husband Aaron Ross, a former New York Giant and UT Longhorn football player, have embarked on a new challenge: parenthood.
Richards-Ross is due in August with their first child — a son. She spoke with Austin American-Statesman reporter Nicole Villalpando about the joys and challenges upcoming for their family.
Parenthood and retirement from sports is changing where they are in their life and what goals they have for the future. This weekend, the Rosses are partnering with Capital One Bank to be spokespeople for Capital One’s Banking Reimagined Tour. A 54-foot trailer will be at The Domain from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
The Rosses, who now live in Round Rock, will be there Saturday afternoon to set their own financial future. “It meets you where you are,” she says. “It takes away the anxiety. It puts your life goals first and then helps you to figure out how to get there financially.”
