Megan O’malley – Bio, Age & Everything About Chris Long’s Wife

He joined the NFL as a single man, though in a relationship with his college sweetheart, Megan O’Malley, by the time he retired, he was already married with kids.

Megan and the former American football defensive end dated for a long time before their eventual engagement and colorful wedding in 2013 and there is no gainsaying that she played a vital role in the success of Chris’ football career. Just like her husband, Megan was also an athlete.
