Blake Bortles is a retired NFL player who served as the quarterback for teams such as the Jacksonville Jaguars, Los Angeles Rams, Green Bay Packers, New Orleans Saints and the Denver Broncos from 2014 to 2022. Bortles is quite a recognizable name in the NFL world. He had some outstanding seasons as a quarterback, including his time playing for the underrated UCF Knights. To put it in modern terms, he was the Jacksonville Jaguars 2014 Trevor Lawrence.
However, the article below takes a closer look at his personal life, including his girlfriends and marital status; whether he has a wife or not. The concern has been a pressing matter of debate since his quiet retirement from the NFL in the summer of 2022.
Unlike other famous athletes, Blake has not had multiple partners or girlfriends. For years, he apparently had a pretty serious relationship with one girl. That, unfortunately, couldn’t make it to the chapter happily ever after. Since then, the latest news about his dating life has been a hot buzz. The answers are again unsatisfactory or of top quality. Decode that in the following headers anyway.
Who is Blake Bortles dating now or does he already have a wife?
Surprisingly, nothing new has been added to Bortle’s love life since his breakup with his ex-girlfriend, Lindsey Duke. The now 30-year-old has been extremely clandestine in this particular regard of his life. It’s really a shock to know that Bortles hasn’t given the press air on his dating aspects for over eight years.
That being said, whether he is married or not is also a big mystery. While NFL players his age don’t take the time to get their hands on a wife or kids, Bortles seems to be a bit ahead of the game in that regard. It may therefore take some time for Bortles to reveal who his other half really is or who she will be.
For all you could say is that he must have focused his mindset largely on his NFL career. In addition, he achieved minor success with the team that drafted him before letting him wander through the leagues.
Blake Bortles has two children; Who is their mother?
Although Bortles prefers to keep his love affairs secret, he has no problem sharing that he is now a full-time father of his two children. However, it is a mystery who the children’s birth mother is; whether she’s Blake’s wife or just a friend. Or that Blake just adopted the kids.
A while ago, however, a picture appeared on Facebook of Blake with a blonde woman and two children, a boy and a girl. Since then, many have assumed that the three people could be Bortles’ family. Again it is unclear whether it is his wife and children or just some random relatives.
In addition to his children, meanwhile, Blake also dabbles in golf and also has a LinkedIn account that the 2014 NFL draftee reportedly launched to help him get a job.
Blake was in a publicized relationship with his ex-girlfriend Lindsey Duke
Lindsey is one of Blake Bortles’ few, or more accurately, only known partner, though not together now.
According to Daily Mail, Bortles and Duke were together from their high school years until 2014. The former couple met when they were both students at Oviedo High School in Oviedo, Florida.
They were also dating in their college days when they both attended the University of Central Florida.
Since being introduced as Bortle’s friend, Lindsey Duke has seen a steady rise in her following on Twitter/Instagram. To some extent, she was also one of athletes’ better girlfriends at one point.
According to ESPN reporter Gene Wojciechowski, Lindsey Duke’s google search once turned up about 224,000 hits. What’s more when Jacksonville Jaguars called up her ex-boyfriend, she had about six million Google searches.
Duke was very supportive of her NFL ex-boyfriend. Despite breaking up a while ago, some sources claimed that the former couple had secretly patched it up and they were already married. However, a believable headline on that is still waiting.
Blake’s former girlfriend Lindsey Duke was quite famous
When Lindsey was Bortle’s partner, she had more social media appeal than her boyfriend Bortles. Duke routinely shared photos of herself in bikinis on her now-defunct Instagram and Twitter handles.
Even Bortles admitted that Duke was more of a household name than him, especially on the aforementioned forums.
She’s more famous than me and I can’t help that.
the ex-No. 5 Jaguars told ESPN in February 2014.
Duke also often mentioned her sports boyfriend and threw wish messages for his games.
While Lindsey is believed to have deleted her Instagram and Twitter following her divorce from Bortles, the Daily Mail said in November 2014 that she would have preferred to keep her profiles private.
Duke was born on November 13, 1991 in Maitland, Florida. She grew up near Oviedo, Florida. Lindsey was also on the cover of aXis Magazine.
The reason behind Blake Bortles and girlfriend Lindsey Duke are breaking up
As previously mentioned, Duke and Bortles ended their relationship sometime in the middle to late 2014. The UCF alum, Steve Sardone, was one of the first to announce the news to the public. On November 18, 2014, Sardone wrote via his Twitter that Bortles dumped Florida model Duke a few months ago.
While it’s still unclear why Duke and Bortles ended their togetherness, amidst the news of the breakup, some insiders said it had something to do with Lindsey’s hard partying, something that didn’t sit well with Bortles.
