Talking about their journey as a romantic couple, Deion and Tracey’s romance took a pace after their first met-up during the premiere of the movie Edmonds produced. At the first sight, Sanders was quite smitten by Tracey’s personality.

A few months after, the two came along for the Sanders’ show Deion’s Family Playbook and later ended up falling in love with each other. Regarding this, a television producer told People,

“I started off thinking I was just going to produce [the show],” But as I started working with Deion on the show, we grew quite fond of each other and ended up dating.”

The couple started dating each other in 2012 and is now already engaged. They shared the ring in February 2019. Sandars and Edmonds are so in love with each other at a moment.

But the couple has some issues which are a barrier for them to unite as a husband and wife. Even the Colorado Buffaloes’ head coach took a long time to propose his love to Edmonds. In this respect, Deion opened up in a conversation in the podcast and said,

“Well, kids play a major role, “I didn’t believe in long-distance marriages, number one. Number two, her kids graduate – her youngest son – graduates this year. My son, who lives with me, my other two live with their mother. He’s a sophomore now, so he has two more years.

Sanders further stated,

So just thinking all that through, walking all that through and making sure we do the right thing, because I don’t believe in long distance, so there’s gonna have to be sacrifices made on both sides. And oftentimes one is not willing to make sacrifices, but one must grow.”

In regards to the plan to get married, a couple, of course, has given thought to it. Deion said that whenever it happened, they want to keep it low, not a big wedding. Hope, very soon we get to hear the good news of their marriage.

His fiancee, Tracey Edmonds was previously a wife to Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds from 1992 to 2005. She also briefly dated Eddie Murphy.
