Katie Nolan was a gifted athlete and even won Gold Medal at age of 10
Nolan was born on January 28, 1987, in Boston, Massachusetts to American parents. She grew up along with her sibling, a brother named Kevin Nolan.
Katie was a competitive rhythmic gymnast who won the gold medal in the sport during the 1997 Junior Olympics at the mere age of 10. She is also a die-hard Boston Red Sox fan.
Growing up, both of her parents used to watch Baseball a lot. Maybe this is why Katie too found a passion for sports. During her interview with Jimmy Kimmel, she talked about how both her mom and dad had different sets of beliefs while they watched the game.
She said, “My dad is the kind who, when the team does poorly one time, is immediately like, ‘Eh, Red Sox are done this season.”
Katie further explained about her mom and stated, “She’s very superstitious,” Nolan said. “She made me watch an entire game in the bathroom once because I was in the bathroom when Big Papi made a home run, and therefore, if I were to leave the bathroom we would lose.”
Safe to say, Katie Nolan’s parents are just as crazy as yours.
