Brittany Dudchenko And Her Husband Drew Met At Purdue: Their Dating life
In 1999, Brittany and her spouse Drew met for the first time when Brittany was a junior and her hubby was a sophomore at Purdue University, West Lafayette. It was his 20th birthday when Drew planned the party for his college colleagues. He told ESPN while partying the player already had “about 17 shots” before going to approach her. But, Brees couldn’t impress her with his cheesy pickup line. He said,
“It was a typical football player cheesy line — we’ll leave it at that.”
Although his first attempt didn’t go as per his plan, the NFL player who first saw her from across the room instantly thought “I’m gonna marry this woman.”
He told to CBS NEWS that it was her presence and her aura that most attracted him. But, in the meantime, his wife said it was rather her height. She said,
“I think it was more breeding stock (LAUGHS). He wanted me tall–”
Later on, Bress also accepted the fact and said, “tall, athletic build. So my boys are gonna get great genes.”
Although her now husband didn’t make the first impression when they met, it took him almost six months to approach her again. All of them were invited to a college party and Drew also knew Brittany would be there.
As soon as the player saw her for the second time at the college party, Drew asked her for a date. But, the interesting part of their first date it wasn’t exactly a one-on-one outing. In fact, her friends came along with her to see the guy who made a bad impression on their first meeting. Likewise, Drew invited his pals to join them.
