After years of dating, Danielle and Kyle got married in 2012 in a wedding that occurred on the 28th day of June. Danielle’ and her husband’s 5-year marriage has resulted in them becoming parents to two children.

Personal Life

Being married to a professional sportsman with an unknown net worth, Danielle Okposo celebrated her wedding at a mansion in the region of Minneapolis. It is one of the classiest weddings that Minneapolis has ever seen. Photos of their wedding celebration were widely shared on Instagram. From their confessions, Danielle and Okposo come a long way since they have been familiar with each other from their high school days. That is to say, at age 14, Danielle and Kyle had crossed paths, particularly at a movie theater. The choice of Minneapolis as the preferable wedding location is understandable since it is Kyle’s hometown.  

From his biography, Danielle’s husband, Kyle, has been playing ice hockey professionally for some time. He currently plays at the position of a right winger in the National Hockey League for Buffalo Sabres. Five years before Danielle’s and Kyle’s marriage, Kyle started playing for New York Islanders. Obviously, Danielle is proud of his husband’s achievement in sports, especially since had participated at the World Junior Ice Hockey Championship representing his country and scooped a bronze medal.

Danielle and her husband are fond of pets and even own a dog. In several occasions, the social media has been graced with photos of Kyle and the charming dog spending time together. But, unlike her husband, Danielle is not an active social media person as she seldom posts anything. Clearly, Danielle prefers a quite life, especially being a mother to two children and the wife to a busy sportsman.

Career Life

Unlike her husband, Kyle Okposo, Danielle Okposo does not have much public info regarding her early life, educational background or career endeavors including involvement in movies and TV shows. However, much is available as it relates to her husband’s career. From his Wikipedia, Kyle started playing hockey at the University of Minnesota. In these days, Kyle played center position despite his skilled abilities as a winger. His talents paved the way for him to compete in the IIHF World Junior Championship playing for his National Junior Team in 2007.

In 2008, he joined New York Islanders through an entry-level contract which saw him play in the National Hockey League (NHL). Four years after his marriage to Danielle, Kyle joined Buffalo Sabres having left the Islanders. Kyle’s contract is valid for 7 years with the contact worth being $42 million. Rather than playing the central position, Kyle now plays in the position of a right winger.
