32-year-old Kelly Danielle Stokes ~ Kelly Stokes Davis was born in Greenville, South Carolina, to Terry Stokes Wolfe, 66. Kelly graduated from Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC in 20087 with a major in biology, but let’s back just a notch before Mrs. Davis her college diploma and let’s go to 2005 her freshman year a Winthrop, where Kelly the hardworking mother of her little princess Skyy (just love her name), managed to keep good grades at college while she juggle with waiting tables at Applebee’s and still had time and energy to play with Skyy; as you can imagine, there was no time for any social actives in Kelly’s schedule but life had something well someone specially waiting for her.
That special soul was dragged by Javon Haye the defensive tackle for the Tampa Buccaneers and a friend of Thomas Davis who introduced them. Thomas who like Kelly was by that time the father of his handsome son Denim found himself uncontrollably attracted to Kelly in the hour they spend talking that night, he asked out and stayed 7 incredible days dating, sharing stories about each other’s bundles of joy, as crazy as this is going to sound, Kelly had no idea Thomas was a NFL player and only found out when he told her that he had to go to practice.
“I didn’t know he played football until he told me he had to go to practice,” –
Months passed until Thomas finally met Skyy. He was the first guy of the very few Kelly had dated that met her little girl.
“I didn’t date much,” explains Kelly, “but when I did, I didn’t introduce my dates to Skyy. I just wanted to make sure it was the right person before I brought a man into her life.”
Thomas couldn’t be happier to meet Skyy, (certainly she is just as lovely as her mom) over the next two years, Thomas, Kelly, Skyy and Denim became inseparable, one joyous news brought them even closer, a new member of the family was coming soon, Kelly was PREGNANT!!!!!
Kelly was a couple of months pregnant when she graduated. Thomas sadly couldn’t be there.
“I was sad because Thomas had to go to a mandatory mini-camp and couldn’t come. ” she says. “He gave my family and his family video cameras and said that between both of them they had better come up with a good tape!”
Thomas made it home that night, he was carrying a big Nike bag, tennis shoes for Kelly on graduation???
Nah!! Something much better, much smaller and way brighter, can you guess??
Inside the bag there were no shoes, but a beautiful seven carat ring designed by Martin Delgado and there surrounded by their family he asked her to be his wife; she said Yes!
