Julius Peppers

Julius Peppers is a former American football defensive end. He has been in a long-term relationship with Claudia Sampedro, his model girlfriend, with whom he has a child. He is not in a hurry to marry his son’s mother because they have a strong bond.

Claudia Sampedro and Peppers’ Relationship

Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Sampedro met at a party in 2014 and started dating soon after. In 2016, the Cuban model was featured in the WAGS Miami series as the better half of the defensive end. She gushed about her relationship with Peppers in an interview with Bustle in October 2016. She reassured her fans that their romantic relationship was still going strong.

Monat, a multi-level marketing organization, employs Sampedro as an executive director.

They hold opposing viewpoints on marriage.

Sampedro and Peppers had a conversation about marriage in November 2016, which aired on WAGS Miami. However, the conversation became awkward when the footballer expressed his opposing viewpoints. She stated openly that she wanted to continue the relationship, marry, and have a family like her parents, who had been ‘together for 30 years.’

Peppers openly admitted that the pressure of getting married did not bother him, and that he was happy with where the couple was in their relationship. I enjoy where we are right now; I like the area we’re in. When things are going well, I don’t think we need to add any additional pressure or expectations.

They haven’t had another chat about marriage since the conversation aired on WAGS.

Their Son as well as Children are from Previous Relationships

On September 21, 2015, Peppers and Sampedro welcomed a son named Amaresito, one year after they began dating. Aside from their son, they have children from past relationships.

Keana Sampedro, Sampedro’s daughter, was born in 2008. Peppers also has a son named Elihjan from a previous relationship with Lia Ames. After Peppers’ separation with Ames in May 2016, Elihjan was born on March 18, 2014. He pays child support of $8000 every month.

The pair maintains a tight relationship with all of their children as a mixed family and routinely features them on their Instagram feeds.

Aside from Ames, Peppers was linked to Solange Knowles in 2008 and dated shoe designer Angela Simmons in 2010. On the other side, his now-partner Sampedro was dating Reggie Bush.
