Kathryn Edwards was born and raised in Wisconsin with her brother and two sisters.
After graduating high school, Kathryn was signed by Elite Model Management and quickly moved to Paris where she got her start as a successful model–landing several magazine covers and Nike’s first “Just Do It” campaign.
In 1986, Kathryn moved to Los Angeles and married a superstar NFL player, but after eight years, Kathryn divorced him and subsequently married Donnie Edwards, another former NFL player for the San Diego Chargers and the Kansas City Chiefs who happens to be nine years her junior.
Kathryn and Donnie currently live in Brentwood where they are actively involved in many charities. Kathryn enjoys traveling abroad with her husband as well as visiting Donnie’s hometown of San Diego, where they own a second home.
