Yainee Alonso – Bio, Personal Life & Facts About Manny Machado’s Wife

It is common for sports stars to date or marry women with already established high reputation, such as movie stars or models. After all, they are women who fit the high profile nature of these stars and further increase their popularity, but some stars tend to go another way, marrying the unknown woman who has been with them before anyone ever knew them, such as Manny Machado, who is married to Yainee Alonso, a woman he met while he was just a prospect.

The meeting of Yainee Alonso and Manny Machado was born out of their individual connection to the sport but also out of a growing Miami sports community, through which they established their bond and have grown to become one of the most adored couples in baseball. Here is everything you should know about Yainee Alonso and her relationship with her husband.

Early Life

Yainee Alonso was born on the 24th of November, 1990 in Havana Cuba to parents, Luis and Damarys Alonso.

During her time in Miami, Yainee Alonso was a cheerleader for the University’s Baseball team, Miami Marlins, in further solidification of her connection to baseball. Perhaps, her biggest connection to baseball yet, is her husband, Manny Machado who has been in the league since 2012 when he joined the Baltimore Orioles.
