Personal Life

Sacramone is married to her longtime boyfriend, the retired National Football League (NFL) player and sportscaster, Brandy Quinn. It’s unclear how the lovebirds met, but it’s widely known that they began dating in 2009, and became engaged in 2013. They walked the aisle at the Coral Gables-based Biltmore Hotel in the presence of close friends and family a year later in March 2014, and changed her name to Alicia Quinn. The couple later opened up about Alicia’s pregnancy on Instagram in 2016, and were blessed with a daughter, Sloan Scott Quinn, on 6 August 2016. On 7 July 2018, they sired another daughter named Teagan Marie Quinn, and on 17 February 2020, they welcomed their last-born daughter, Cassidy Nicole Quinn.

In 2008, the talented gymnast fell off the beam twice and tumbled on the floor, which probably cost Americans the win against the Chinese.
