Being a good model isn’t just about being buxom, sexy and curvy, its a talent only a few possess. The likes of Laura Cover has it all when you talk of beauty and talent and she has not left any stone unturned in her profession.
The former Playboy Bunny who is now known as the wife of Aaron Boone, married the former MLB infielder in 2002 and together, they’ve been involved with charities over the years. Outside being a model and a wife to a former professional baseball player, Laura is also into acting and has appeared in a number of documentaries and TV productions.
Laura Cover is an American citizen born on May 6, 1977, in Bucyrus, Ohio. The model has not revealed much about her life outside her profession but from what we know so far, she was a very active child with a keen interest in various sports activities. While in high school, Laura played soccer and performed gymnastics but as she grew older, she developed an interest in other activities.
Meet Laura Cover’s Family
Laura’s original name is actually Laura Lee Phillips. She was raised in a Christian home and her parents are Carole and Jerry Thomas Phillips. It is not clear if Laura has any sibling but information about her shows that she grew up with her mother who was a registered nurse. Laura also revealed that she is closer to her mother than any member of her family. Even when she was to officially join the show business, she only informed her mother about it and she supported her.
Outside her parents, Laura shares a family with her husband, Aaron Boone who she met in 2001 and dated briefly before tying the knot in November 2002. Her husband was a professional baseball player for various teams including the Cincinnati Reds, New York Yankees and Cleveland Indians but after his retirement in October 2009, he received a new job as a guest analyst for MLB Network. Shortly after, he joined the ESPN where he worked as an analyst and show host. On December 4, 2017, he was hired by the New York Yankees to serve as a manager.
By being married to Aaron, Laura became a member of her husband’s family which includes his father Bob Boone, an MLB manager and former catcher. The couple has four children of which two are adopted.
She kicked off her modeling career with no formal experience
Laura Cover is among the few known celebrities who were able to reach a meaningful height in their professions even without a formal experience in the field. After college, she picked up modeling as her choice of career and with no form of experience, she summoned the courage to go for auditions. She particularly went to Playboy studio and luckily got her first job as a Playboy Bunny. In October 1998, she became Playmate of the Month. Laura has also appeared in a number of Playboy videos including the Playboy: Club Lingerie, Playboy: California Girls and the Playboy Video Playmate Calendar 2000. She even took nude pictures for Talking Blue and Mystique magazine.
She is into charity works
Although Laura is currently not into modeling as she used to, the charming lady tries to give back to her community in every way she deems fit. In 2001, she appeared in a single episode of Playmate’s TV show Weakest Link, where she competed with other Playboy Bunnies like Shanna Moakler, Renee Tenison, and Jennifer Walcott, to raise money for charity. The charities Laura is part of in include a breast cancer foundation and a foundation that cares for children in third-world countries. She even went out of her way to pick a Christian Children’s Fund child, Bernabe who she takes care of.
