Know About Kristen Harabedian, Trea Turner’s Wife
Kristen Harabedian was born in Flemington, NJ, on May 1, 1992. She also started competing in gymnastics in high school, where she was one of the best. Faces in the Crowd in Sports Illustrated wrote about her on January 18, 2010. This was a big win for her.
Harabedian comes from a family of athletes, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that she is so good at gymnastics. Both Zak and Jenny, her brother and sister, played baseball. She started doing gymnastics at a very young age. Over time, she got good enough that NC State University offered her a full athletic scholarship. She doesn’t compete actively anymore, tho.
Trea And Kristen Are Parents To A Son
In February 2021, the couple announced that they had their first child, a son. They live in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida when the season is over. They used to own a home in Arlington, Virginia but decided to sell it after Turner has been traded to the Dodgers.
Both Kristen and Trea usually share pictures of their son on their respective social media accounts.
