On the field, quarterback Kirk Cousins is a team player who's been a consistent force throughout his 11-year career in the NFL. Off the field, the Minnesota Vikings athlete is a father to two sons whom he shares with his wife, Julie Cousins. Kirk and his family, in part, are highlighted in the upcoming Netflix docuseries "Quarterback," which follows Cousins, along with fellow NFL quarterbacks Patrick Mahomes and Marcus Mariota, throughout the highs and lows of the 2022 football season.

According to People, Kirk met Julie in 2012 through a mutual friend, and the two dated for nearly two years before the QB proposed in November 2013. The couple tied the knot in June 2014 and have since welcomed their two boys, Cooper and Turner.

Kirk incorporates his Christian faith into parenting his children, explaining in a March 2023 interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, "Fatherhood has been a joy, it's been a challenge and it certainly takes a lot of energy! You know, when I leave you start a whole new chapter of work when you come home and it really gives me a picture of what my Heavenly Father is like, looking at me. For the first time I truly have a picture of maybe what it's like when I have to discipline my son or say 'no' or take him away from something that could hurt him. It paints a cool picture."
