Hadley is the couple’s first child. Carson and Maddie got engaged two days after Philadelphia’s wild Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots and married in July 2018.
Maddie joined her husband as guests on the Sports Spectrum Podcast in February. During the interview, Maddie shared the impact that Psalm 139 has had on her life, especially verses 7-8, which say: “Where can I go from You Spirit? Where can I flee from Your presence? If I go up to the heavens, You are there; if I make my bed in the depths, You are there.”
“No matter what we’re facing, and no matter what cards are up against us, He’s always there,” she said. “I look back over the trajectory of my life, and from the beginning to now, He’s always been with me. So that’s one (Bible verse) that I always love to reflect on and, especially having a child, that’s one thing I always want her to know.”
Carson has long been vocal about his faith in Christ.
“Jesus died on that cross so that we can have eternal life with Him,” Carson once said as a guest speaker at a church in his home state of North Dakota. “We need to be intentional about our conversations. At the end of the day, I need to think, ‘What have I done for the Kingdom today? Who have I impacted? Who have I talked to?'”
Wentz, a 2017 NFL Pro Bowler, signed a four-year contract extension last year to remain with Philadelphia. On Friday, the Eagles added even more firepower to their quarterback room with the selection of Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts in the second round of the NFL draft, and Wentz welcomed Hurts to the team.
