Michelle Beisner-Buck is a former cheerleader for Denver Broncos
She is now famous for the whole world for her work in the ESPN network as the NFL reporter. Nevertheless, not many are aware of the fact that she was once a renowned cheerleader.
Yes, that’s right! She is the former cheerleader for the NFL team. Denver Broncos. She was a member of the Broncos Cheerleaders from 1997 to 2003, six-years. Out of these six-years, she even led the squad as their captain for four years. Safe to say, Michelle was really enjoying her time at the Broncos.
A few years later in 2006, she joined the NFL network as their studio host. During her time there, she featured in several shows including Game Day First, Game Day Morning, NFL Total Access. She left the network in 2014 and joined ESPN in the same year.

She married Joe Buck in 2014 in a beachside wedding
Michelle tied the knot with the love of her life Joe on April 12, 2014. The nuptials was held at El Dorado Golf & Beach Club in Mexico. Many of their closest friends and family were in attendance including their parents and relatives.
Apart from their family, many of Joe’s celebrity friends attended the wedding. Some of them were Paul Rudd, Tony Romo, Troy Aikman, Jerry Jones, Jordan Palmer, and more.
At the wedding, Michelle wore a white gown and her groom looked dapper in a dark blue suit. The couple initially announced their engagement on 19th August 2013, a few months after coming out as a couple.
Michelle’ didn’t like her husband Joe at first
Judging by how their relationship is going right now, one can say their love story must have started off the right foot. Well, this is where you’re wrong.
Apparently, Michelle despised Joe Buck, before she met him and talked to him in person. So back in 2012, Rich Eisen, a mutual friend of Michelle and Joe, asked Beisner if she’d like to give her number to one of his friends.
At first, she said no as she was at the time, in a relationship with another man. Still, she wanted to know who is the mystery man so randomly called out names to Rich. She named ‘Troy Aikman.’ ‘Cris Collinsworth.’ ‘Al Michaels.’
When Rich said no to each and every one of them, she said, “Please don’t say it’s Joe Buck.” Unfortunately for her, it was indeed Joe. You see, the beautiful blonde has this impression about Joe that he is arrogant and smug. Well, on a first glance, we all kinda agree with her, isn’t it?
Moving on, the pair wouldn’t go out until the very next when they meet in person at Super Bowl XLVII in February 2013. During their meeting, she’d broken up with her boyfriend and the rest is history.
Michelle became a mother of twins with the help of IVF
It’s a fact that fertility decreases with age. Likewise, when Michelle and Joe decided to become a parent, they had a few difficulties. Nonetheless, they decided to take the scientific route and opted for the in vitro fertilization treatment.
After months of trying, they finally heard the good news. Beisner announced the big news on December 13, 2017, when she shared a picture of Joe and herself holding two pairs of shoes.

After months of anticipation, she gave birth to two boys, Wyatt Joseph and Blake Andrew on April 26, 2018. They came to this world, a day after their father’s birthday, meaning Joe won’t be celebrating his birthdays now.
The duo is certainly happy with their family of four, however, the journey to becoming a parent was a painful one. In an interview, she recalled all the challenges with IVF and how it was one of the most painful journeys she has ever endured.
She maintained, “We went through IVF, and I can tell you there is not much that’s more financially, emotionally, physically taxing than in vitro fertilization.”
Michelle is the step-mother of Joe’s two daughters from his first marriage
Apart from her two boys, she is also a wonderful step-mom to her lovely daughters Natalie Buck and Trudy Back. Both of them are adults now.
