"Dancing with the Stars" finalist and NFL (American Football League) player Chad Ochocinco was pictured celebrating his 43rd birthday at Prime 112 Restaurant and later Mansion Nightclub, both in Miami Beach, Florida. Chad was joined by his fiancee Evelyn Lozada, who is also a reality television star from the TV show "Basketball Wives". The couple got engaged in November.

These are anxious times for the NFL. With the league lockout still in effect and the owners and players struggling to find common ground, the threat of a season with no NFL football looms. But leave it to XXL to find the bright side in this troublesome situation. True, our gridiron stars are currently being deprived of practicing their profession, but don’t feel too sorry for them all. On top of the millions they stashed away for such a rainy day, the fact that there are no pre-season mini camps to attend leaves some of these footballers with more time to spend with their significant others. Now, once you get a glimpse of these notable football wives/girlfriends you’ll see that not having to go to work in the dog days of summer ain’t such a bad thing. -Rondell Conway


October Gonzalez

Tony Gonzalez is arguably the greatest tight end of all time, and his wife arguably has the tightest body of all NFL wives.


Tiffany Glenn Burress

Home from a 21-month bid, Plaxico Burress, is one of the few players built to go the distance in this NFL lockout. Lucky for him he’s got a wife with the winning combination of beauty, brains, and patience.


Sheree Whitfield

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, ex-wife of retired Atlanta Falcons offensive lineman Bob Whitfield, is a certified MILF.


Pilar Sanders

The wife of Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders is a prime time player among the cast of the VH1 reality series, Football Wives.


Nicole Murphy

Retirement has been good to former New York Giants great Michael Strahan. Eddie Murphy's ex-wife in the sack > quarterback sacks.


Mercedes Nelson

As a cast member of VH1’s Football Wives, Nelson, the ex-girlfriend of Dallas Cowboys running back Marion Barber is Pilar Sanders’ biggest competition for hottest banger on the show.


Melani Ismail

While Rocket Ismail didn’t have the greatest hands as a NFL wide receiver he did reel in a nice catch with wife Melani. The mocha hottie also stars on the VH1 reality series, Football Wives.


Lisa Wu

The Blasian beauty is married to former Atlanta Falcons linebacker turned TV analyst Ed Hartwell. As a former cast member of the reality series, The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Wu was must see TV.


Layla Ali

Former NFL wide receiver Curtis Conway wasn’t the greatest at his position, so marrying the daughter of “The Greatest” will have to do.


Kendra Wilkinson

The former Playboy bunny maybe married to a scrub, but she’s definitely in our starting lineup.


Holly Robinson Peete

Quarterback Rodney Peete was serviceable player in his NFL days, but clearly his best play came off the field marrying the beautiful actress.


Gisele Bundchen

Getting married to the Brazilian super model may have tarnished Tom Brady’s image—All-American tough guy to a pompous pretty boy—but Patriots QB still delivers on the field.


Evelyn Lozada

The fiery Bronx-bred butter pecan Puerto Rican is the hands down star of VH1’s popular reality show, Basketball Wives and the soon-to-be Mrs. Chad Ochocinco.


Claudia Sampedro

Reggie Bush has run through a few things since calling it quits with Kim Kardashian. This Miami cutie is reportedly his latest eye candy.


Michi Marshall While beautiful Michi Marshall is dangerous. Husband Brandon Marshall, Miami Dolphins wide receiver, learned the hard way (Michi allegedly stabbed him in the stomach) that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
