Is He Gay?

Jesse Palmer is one among many celebrities whose sexual orientation has been clearly misunderstood. Since the former professional football player keeps his personal life on the low, what more could be expected of his fans? While the popularity of the LGBT community is on the increase; Jesse alongside his fellow quarterback Nick Foles is part of the NFL players who have pledged their support to the community. Jesse stated in an interview with Cyd Ziegler that he doesn’t care if his teammate is gay or not. What matters is your ability to pull a stint in the field of play. After this revelation, Jesse became aligned with the majority of players who are active supporters of the LGBT community. That said, Jesse Palmer is not gay and he has straight sexual orientation.

Who Is His Brother?

Jesse came from an athletic family; his father Bill Palmer was a former football player for the Ottawa Rough Riders, while his younger brother Billy Palmer also played football professionally. Just like Jesse, Billy also played for the Ottawa Myers Riders before he transferred to Lake Highland Preparatory School in Florida; where he completed his high school career. He was drafted by the British Colombia Lions of the Canadian Football League in 2004 and later on, he played for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team. He graduated from Mendoza College of Business where he obtained his bachelor’s degree in marketing and economics.

Does Jesse Palmer Have A Wife Or Girlfriend?

Jesse has an attractive and wonderful personality. He has won the heart of many ladies with his cute smile and gorgeous physique. He previously appeared on the ABC television series titled The Bachelor. Jesse was the first professional athlete to appear on the show in which eligible bachelors are given the opportunity to make choice of a possible partner from a group of single women. After series of considerations, Palmer chose Jessica Bowlin and the duo appeared to be a near-perfect combination.

However, after the show, Jesse didn’t propose to Jessica; their relationship continued for a few months before they went their separate ways. Bowling later got married to Omar Rawi and they both have two children. While Bowlin is enjoying a blissful married life, Palmer, on the other hand, is yet to be married. He was spotted at the Miami beach with a gorgeous Brazilian Model named Emely Fardo in 2017.

Currently, Jesse Palmer is still single and doesn’t have a wife yet. We hope he will take the bold step to seal his love with Fardo pretty soon.
