Father – Brett FavreBrittany’s father is Brett Favre, a former NFL quarterback who spent most of his career playing for the Green Bay Packers; other teams he played for include the New York Jets, the Minnesota Vikings, and the Atlanta Falcons. He was the first NFL quarterback to pass 500 touchdowns, complete 6,000 passes, thrown passes for 70,000 yards, and attempt 10,000 passes. He holds the record for consecutive game starts with 297, 321 if play-offs are included. He was invited to the Pro Bowl 11 times, which is the third most among quarterbacks. Aside from these, he is the only player to win the NFL MVP award three consecutive times, from 1995 to 1997, and is one of only six quarterbacks to win the award and the Super Bowl in the same season. He led the team to two Super Bowl appearances, with one win against the New England Patriots. He also led his team to eight division championships, and five NFC championship games. During the time of his retirement, he was the NFL all-time leader in quarterback wins, passing touchdowns and passing yards, since surpassed by Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. Favre was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016.
Brittany was born at the early part of her father’s career when he was just 19 years old. She grew up very close to her father, and so frequented the country’s most famous stadiums following her father’s success. She mentions that despite her father’s success, he was always down to earth. He encouraged her to work despite being successful, but the family had bit of a problem when her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. The good thing is that she was able to recover from the disease, which helped the entire family. Eventually, her parents established the organization called the Deanna Favre Hope Foundation, to help people with cancer and to help spread awareness of the disease. Brittany grew up in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, with a sister who would pursue a career in volleyball, managing to learn how to deal with the spotlight of her father. After matriculating from high school and completing her bachelor’s degree, she then enrolled at Loyola University’s College of Law.
College, Family, and Law
Brittany had a lot of problems during her first years in college, finding it hard to focus as she didn’t really take things seriously, but that changed when she became pregnant at the age of 21. Considering the future of her son, she wanted him to be proud of her, so she decided to continue with her studies, completing her law degree while raising children. During the pregnancy of her first child, she married her then boyfriend Alex, but they divorced after a year of marriage. She later met Patrick Valkenburg, and in 2011 she married again, and the two have a son together. After completing her degree, she then started working in a small law firm located in Hattiestown. She mentioned that she enjoyed starting out with a small law firm, as she wanted to build her name and not use the success of her father as a stepping stone. She now specializes in entertainment and sports law. In 2016, she appeared in the documentary series entitled “A Football Life” – which followed the lives of influential NFL players – during the sixth season of the show when there was coverage of her father’s career.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, it is known that Favre is apparently enjoying her marriage to Patrick Valkenburg and they reside in Hattiesburg with their two children. She is known to be a fan of the “Harry Potter” franchise, owning all the books while following the film series. She hopes of one day sharing her love for “Harry Potter” with her kids.
Unlike her parents, Brittany prefers to keep her life away from the media, and though she knows that she cannot avoid it completely, one of the steps she’s done to ensure her privacy is to stay away from social media websites. She doesn’t have any public social media profiles, which is one of the reasons why there is very little information about her current endeavors. She isn’t intending to step into a career surrounded by cameras similar to her father, although she occasionally makes public appearances as a part of her work with her parents’ foundation, and also supports her father by participating in documentaries and events that honor him. Her father maintains his status as an icon, and often participating in projects related to professional football.
