A gold medal-worthy love! Bode Miller found his forever teammate in now-wife Morgan Miller (née Beck) after connecting at one of her volleyball games.
The Olympic skier first met Morgan in May 2012 — two weeks before he found out his ex-girlfriend Sara McKenna was pregnant with his child. Their son, Samuel, was born in February 2013, shortly before the exes were involved in a back-and-forth custody battle after the former Marine moved from California to New York without informing Bode.

Bode’s romance with the pro volleyball player quickly heated up, as the pair tied the knot in October 2012 after five months of dating.

Bode — who also coparents daughter Neesyn, born in 2009, with ex Chanel Johnson — and Morgan have gone on to welcome a large brood together.

Bode and Morgan welcomed daughter Emeline “Emmy” in 2016, nearly two years before she tragically died after drowning in a pool. She was 19 months.
