Furthermore, John also coached for years before making his move into real estate. Sadly, Reaves passed away at age 67 on 1st August 2017.
The information about Layla’s mother is not available. Layla once told Knox News that her mom wasn’t good at cooking when the interviewer asked her about a favorite family recipe,

They dated for a year before their Marriage
Lane proposed to his then-girlfriend Layla just after dating for three-month. He reportedly asked his father-in-law John for his permission before popping the big question,
Layla’s dad John described,
“The receptionist at my office buzzed me and said Lane was here to see me. I thought he was going to say that he was getting out of coaching and wanted a job. Instead he asked if he could marry my daughter. I called her to ask her, ‘Is he serious?’ (laughs) I wasn’t supposed to ruin the surprise. They bought an engagement ring that same day.”
The two exchanged their vows in July 2000.
How many children does the former pair share?
They share three children. Layla and her hubby Lane welcomed their first child, a daughter, Landry in 2005. She gave birth to their second daughter, Presley in early 2007. Moreover, their third child and a first son Knox was born in 2005.
In an interview with Knox News, Layla told that she never thought about sacrificing her career in taking care of her children and maintaining the family’s schedule. She maintained,
“I loved what I did and was really happy with the way my career was going. But since they have arrived I can’t even imagine working. It’s just not for me. We’ve said we want more (kids), but I don’t know. I’m very happy with what I have right now.”
Her most favorite work at home is cooking for her family. Her kids love pasta.
Sadly, Layle and her husband separated in 2016
Lane and wife Layla went their separate ways after years of marriage in 2016. The football coach told FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman they separated amicably,
“After a lot of careful thought and consideration, Layla and I have mutually decided to divorce. We are fully committed to our kids’ future being our No. 1 priority. We will maintain an amicable relationship with respect for each other as we raise these three wonderful children. We will have no further comments and appreciate respect for our family’s privacy.”
TMZ first broke the news that Layla filed for divorce on 4th March 2016. She asked for the joint legal custody of their children and also asked for spousal support.
Lane later revealed he paid 34.5% of his money to his ex-wife. He said,
“I really don’t make any money. I pay around 52 percent in taxes. Layla gets 34.5 percent in the divorce, and [agent Jimmy Sexton] gets 3 percent. I make [about] 9 percent, and I’m living in Tuscaloosa.”
They never revealed the reason behind their separation but there were rumors the couple split after Lane’s reported romance with Kristen Saban went viral in 2015. But it later turned out to be a hoax.
