Shawna Gordon Biography – Family and Other Facts About Shemar Moore’s Ex

No other sport in the world garners as much international attention the way soccer does. But without a doubt, soccer in America, despite arguably being the most popular sport in the world, does not enjoy a high-profile status in the country, with preference given to sports like basketball and football. However, the inferior popularity hasn’t stopped a number of Americans from embracing the sport, enough for the country to have its own homegrown stars, one of whom is Shawna Gordon, who has earned so much reputation locally and internationally as a professional soccer player.

Shawna Gordon began playing soccer in high school and has recorded achievements such as playing for teams like Western Sydney Wanders and Umeak IK in Sweden. She has also featured internationally for the United States at Under-20 level.  Watching her play will only convince you of how skilled Gordon is. Nothing seems to faze her. She keeps herself grounded and takes the time to ask questions to improve her game. To many, this speaks a lot about her personality and character, something only one from a good home would have. Talking about her home, there are facts about this athlete’s personality, family and relationships you will know only as you read further.

Who is Shawna Gordon and Where is She From?

On the 18th of January, 1990, Shawna Gordon was born in Fontana, California. Much of her familial background is unknown but she was born to parents with mixed race and thus, is a woman with multi-ethnic roots.

Shawna Gordon was raised in Rancho Cucamonga and she began her education at Los Osos High School where she also commenced her football career, playing for her school’s soccer team.

In high school, Shawna Gordon helped her school to two league championships and was named in the league’s first team four times during her time as a player, including getting named as the Most Valuable Player during her senior year.

Her soccer development included stints at Arsenal and in the Olympic Development Program camps where she spent five years, helping the ’90 Cal South ODP team to a national championship and a second-place finish over the course of five years. Following the completion of high school, Shawna Gordon joined California State University and played college soccer for Long Beach State 49ers.

A central midfielder, Shawna Gordon spent four years playing for the team, representing a total of 89 games with 17 goals, as well as leading the team to three Big West titles along with appearances in three NCAA Tournaments.

After completing her college education, she moved on to play football professionally and signed with the Boston Breakers. However, she never made an appearance for the team before she moved on to Western Sydney Wanders FC in Australia where she played ten games and scored a lone goal during her time at the club.

After leaving Western Sydney, the left-footed midfielder moved on to Umea IK where she spent a year. She returned to America and joined Sky Blue FC in New Jersey, and played a total of twenty-one games for the club.

What Is Shawna Gordon’s Net Worth and Salary?

The lack of popularity of soccer in the US, combined with the comparative difference in salary for female soccer players in the world as against their male counterparts, means Shawna Gordon doesn’t enjoy a hefty amount of salary.

Regardless, a lengthy career in the sport, combined with her work as a model has helped her to an estimated net worth of $1 million. She is believed to be earning $85,000 in salary per year.

What We Know About Her Relationship With Shemar Moore

Aside from her fame as a soccer player, Shawna Gordon’s popularity also comes via her relationship with Shemar Moore, the actor, and former model.

The couple was reportedly in a relationship for a long time, appearing in various events and public spaces together in what many considered a solid and lasting relationship between both parties.

Unfortunately, like Shemar Moore’s previous relationships with other notable personalities like Halle Berry and Toni Braxton, the relationship with Shawna Gordon came to an unceremonious end. Her now ex-boyfriend is dating ‘Quantico’ star Anabelle Acosta. She was even his date to the 2018 Grammys.

Shawna Seems To Have Moved On Too

Since the high-profile relationship ended, Shawna Gordon hasn’t been known to be in any public relationship, and while that might suggest she is single, her Instagram page (@_shawnagordon_) implies she might be in a relationship with an unknown man.  One of her posts has her cuddling and kissing with the unknown young man and attached to it is a note that infers something romantic is going on between them. Regardless, nothing has so far been confirmed by the soccer player.

 

While we are yet to figure out who the Sky Blue FC’s left-footed midfielder is currently sharing her love life with, we sure know of the two things she loves having around her – children and luxurious cars. She has lots of pictures of herself hanging out with some children speculated to be her sister’s.

Details About Her Birth Family

When it comes to her parents, Shawna Gordon has done a good job of keeping them out of the media spotlight. Despite the fact that her career trajectory shows she has supportive parents which aided her success over the course of her career as a soccer player, we have been unable to learn any valuable information about her parents.

So far, the only known fact about her parents is that theirs is an inter-racial marriage.
