Houston Texans running back Arian Foster may have cheated on his wife with his alleged baby mama, Brittany Norwood.
Norwood, a 20-year-old student at the University of Houston, is currently suing Foster for child support and damages related to emotional distress. According to her lawsuit, she and Foster began a relationship last September, but the affair deteriorated when she became pregnant with his child. The 27-year-old stands accused of pressuring his alleged baby mama to get an abortion. Furthermore, Norwood claims to have been unaware of the fact that Foster married his wife, German-born Romina Reinhart, in 2011.
According to her personal website, Reinhart, who has also been recognized online as “Romina Lombardo” (likely her professional name) and “Romina Foster,” is a 27-year-old woman from Pforzheim, Germany. She met Foster while he was attending the University of Tennessee, and the pair have been together ever since. Photos of Foster's wife can be viewed here.
In June 2011, Foster proposed to Reinhart, and the couple married shortly thereafter. The Fosters currently live in Houston with their 4-year-old daughter, Zeniah, and infant son, Khyro.
A former pop star, Lombardo has released a pair of albums, entitled “Till The End Of Time” and “rock The Boat,” PlayerWives.com reports. She also speaks several languages—English, German, Italian, French, Afrikaans and basic Arabic.
In a 2010 interview with Sports Illustrated, Foster discussed how Reinhart helped him sift through the depth charts to find a potential landing spot after he was not selected in that year’s NFL Draft. “Oh, she’s a good one,” Foster told SI. “She was working hard, finding each depth chart. I’m on the phone with the Saints, and she’s got their running backs lined up.”
Foster also mentioned his wife in a 2013 Yahoo column entitled “6 Things I’ll Try to Teach My Daughter,” which quickly went viral. In the article, the Texans star described the day that Reinhart, his girlfriend at the time, broke the news that she was pregnant with the couple’s first child.
“I remember when I first got the call from my girlfriend (who's now my wife), telling me that I was going to be a father,” Foster wrote. “Her voice cracking, tears brewing, she laid it on me. It was news that would change the course of our lives forever.” He went on to describe his wife as a “wonderful woman.”
Reinhart has yet to publicly comment on her husband’s ongoing baby mama scandal, but her Twitter account may provide evidence as to how she’s handling the situation. The mother of two has retweeted a series of inspirational posts, many of which deal with “forgiveness” and “the truth.” While the page is linked to Reinhart's professional website, it's worth noting that it has not been verified as authentic by Twitter.
“The truth always comes out in the end, so make telling the truth a habit, or dealing with lies will become habitual,” one tweet reads. Reinhart posted the tweet on Jan. 11, just hours before TMZ’s initial story on Norwood’s lawsuit was released to the public.
