Kristi Widlak- Red Sox Jonny Gomes’ Wife



1 - Kristi Widlak- Red Sox Jonny Gomes' Wife

Meet beautiful Kristi Widlak, she is is the wife of Red Sox, player Jonny Gomes. The couple were in a long time relationship before tying the knot in Hawaii on February 7, 2009; during a beautiful ceremony.

Kristi was born on September 16, 1976 meaning she is four years older then her 1980 born hubby.

The marriage of four years have three children already, Kristi, gave birth to the couple’s third child earlier this year on April 22, at Mass General Hospital.

Like any other couple they both have faced their ups and downs; Kristi’s husband, the left fielder who began his career with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 2003 was suspended for five games in 2008 after an altercation with Coco Crips. But this years is a different story although his good luck streak began with the Boston Bombings Jonny learned later that his pose symbolizing Boston Strong would grace the cover of Sports Illustrated.

Wife Kristi, a now wife and mom of three also had her bad days, we found a mug shot belonging to her (pictured below).

Apparently she was arrested in Hillsborough, FL; a few years back for a worthless check! The brown eye, blonde was released on a cash bond in 2002. You can see more of her arrest details here.


She graduated from Orchard Park High School, NY; in 1994 and later attended West Virginia University in Vendée, France (Wvu-V) graduating in the class of 1998. She is an Elementary Ed. major/ French minor. A Wvu-V page describing her work as a student says about her

Kristi Widlak then took the floor with an eloquent and informative discussion of marriage in France.  She began with the reminder that the only legally recognized marriages in France are those performed by a mayor or magistrate of the Republic.  This explains why most French citizens are married twice, once in town hall and then in the Church.  Kristi then went on to describe the legal requirements for marriage in France, which include:  two individuals of opposite , minimum ages of 18 for the male and 15 for the female (though a judge can grant exemptions in special cases, i.e. pregnancy), and no other current marriage. Kristi also spoke of the ceremonies associated with marriage, including what they call here “the burial of bachelor life”, which is an big celebration for friends and family of both sexes (not like our “stag parties”).  Kristi concluded with some notes on country customs, which include some very interesting traditions with origins very deep in the culture.

Now the bad days seem to be gone for the beautiful  family of five!
