Jaid Reid originally from Cape Town, South Africa, moved around a lot as a child; her sister, mom and Chicago born father eventually settled in Louisiana, but things turned out a bit harder when her father left them and her mom had to support her and her sister.
Although Jaid’s mom is South African she decided to stay in the U.S because the girls would have better opportunities; Jaid eventually moved to Dallas after hurricane Katrina.

They found they were single when they saw each other again at a friend’s birthday party, they started dating soon after.
Jaid graduated from LSU when the 49ers selected Eric, soon they decided to take the next step and eventually tied the knot on July 19, 2014.
