Is Maria Taylor Married?


Maria Taylor, the prominent sports journalist and host of “Sunday Night Football,” has had an eventful romantic journey. She has been married twice.

Her first marriage was to Rodney Blackstock. They met at a basketball game in 2014 and got engaged less than a year later. They initially planned to marry in June 2016 but decided to take more time. After a brief separation, they reunited and eventually tied the knot at a beach in Destin, Florida. Taylor described marriage as adding a layer of security to their relationship, emphasizing their commitment to navigating life together. Unfortunately, they divorced in 2021 for undisclosed reasons.

In the same year, 2021, Taylor found love again and married a man named Jon. Although she keeps details about her new husband private, she shared on TikTok that they had known each other since high school. Taylor expressed gratitude for having a partner who supports and uplifts her, even in moments of self-doubt.


In July 2023, Maria Taylor announced that she and Jon were expecting their first child. She openly discussed the challenges they faced in conceiving, including surgeries, multiple egg retrievals, and failed IVF cycles. Despite these difficulties, they persevered, and Taylor is eagerly anticipating the arrival of their “sweet Prince.”

Unlike in the past when she kept her personal life more private, Taylor is now sharing her pregnancy journey with her followers, expressing her excitement about becoming a mother. She has even hinted at the possibility of her child becoming an athlete in the future.
