Age, Early Life, and Education Background

Olivia Rose Namath was born in the USA under the Sagittarius zodiac sign on 11 December 1991, which makes her 30 years old as of 2022. She got her name from her paternal grandmother, Rose Namath, who was a devoted Catholic of Hungarian ancestry. She was born to Joseph William ‘Joe’ Namath and his now-estranged wife, the actress Deborah ‘Tatiana’ Mays. She was raised alongside her older sister, the actress, writer and photographer Jessica Grace Namath, who was born on 12 October 1986 (36 years old). Sadly, her parents parted ways when she was nine years old in 2000. Her maternal grandparents, the Mays, were widely known for being among of the wealthiest families living in Ligonier, Pennsylvania.

Olivia attended a local elementary school before joining an unnamed high school in Florida. It is not clear whether she went to college.

Career

Little is known about Olivia’s professional life. She is probably leading a career in the arts field just like her husband – she’s very supportive of her husband’s career and is often seen attending his art exhibitions together with her father. She’s also tried her hand at acting, and is credited with her role as Party Trick Girl in the 2015 film “The Wedding Ringer.”

Personal Life

Olivia is keen on keeping her love life under the radar, and isn’t available on any social media platforms, unlike her father and sister, but she’s regularly seen accompanying her father and sister to celebrity events. Olivia is married to her former long-term boyfriend, the American sculptor and painter, Edwin Baker III, who is very skilled when it comes to street art, inspired by the artists Basquiat and Picasso. The couple dated for several years before walking the aisle in June 2014 at circus King J. Ringling’s historical mansion, Ca’d’Zan, when she was 23 years old. The duo has a daughter named Natalia Namath, who was born in Palm Beach, Florida in August 2007, seven years before their marriage. Olivia was 16 years old while her husband was 19 when they welcomed their daughter.

Olivia is the aunt of her sister’s son with her ex-husband, Brian Kennedy. Her sister, who is an alumnus of the University of Alabama, divorced Kennedy in August 2019. Olivia is the niece of John Namath, and the granddaughter of Rosa and Janos Namath.

Controversy

In 2010, Olivia got into trouble with authority when she was arrested in Palm Beach for speeding. The officers found marijuana and an open bottle of alcohol during her arrest, but she denied ‘knowing anything about the drugs’ as Florida Police reported. Olivia’s husband had been arrested several times before they welcomed their daughter. In 2006, he was charged with grand theft auto, burglary, and possession of the illegal drug, crystal methamphetamine. According to New York Daily News, Baker had also been arrested for allegedly robbing a local McDonald’s outlet in 2005.

Height, Weight, and Physical Appearance

Olivia is slimly-built, weighs around 130lbs (59kgs), and is 5ft 7ins (1.70m) tall. She is of white ethnicity, and has dark brown hair and light brown eyes.

Net Worth

Olivia seems to be living a lavish life, possibly thanks to her father’s wealth. She is authoritatively worth around $500,000 as of 2022. On the other hand, her father’s net worth is estimated at $25 million.

Who are Olivia Namath’s Parents?

Olivia’s father, Joe, met his wife-to-be Deborah Mays, in the ‘80s. At the time, her father was taking voice coaching classes under the legendary voice coach Arthur Joseph, and coincidentally Deborah, who is 17 years younger than him, was also taking the same course. The duo began dating shortly after meeting, and eventually exchanged vows in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on 7 November 1984. They welcomed two daughters before their marriage began having problems in the late ‘90s. The couple separated in 1998, and Mays went on to date the American surgeon, Brian Novack. Olivia and Joe divorced in 2000, and the latter took sole custody of their two kids.

Joe Namath

Joe Namath hails from Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, and was born under the Gemini zodiac sign on 31 May 1943, which makes him 79 years old as of 2022. He was raised alongside his four siblings by his father Janos Andrew Namath, and his mother Rose Namath. He developed a keen interest in American Football when he joined Beaver Falls High, and was the quarterback on the school’s team. Subsequently, he joined the University of Alabama, but quit to pursue a career in Football. Joe later resumed his studies at the University of Alabama, and eventually graduated with an external-program BA degree in Interdisciplinary Studies in 2007.

Namath was drafted into AFL and NFL to play for New York Jets in late 1964. He was a very skilled player who helped his team win several matches, which saw him becoming one of the most valued players in the NFL. In addition to playing Football, Joe has appeared in several TV shows and films such as “Married … With Children,” “The Flip Wilson Show,” and “The Joe Namath Show,” among others. He has also appeared in many commercials for Noxema Shaving Cream, Ovaltine, and many more brands.

Joe had alcohol problems in the mid-‘80s and he previously admitted during an interview that it was his now ex-wife Deborah who helped him sober up, actually giving him ultimatums in which she threatened to leave him if he didn’t sober up – he eventually quit drinking in 1987.

Deborah Mays

Deborah ‘Tatiana’ Lynn Mays was born in the USA under the Virgo zodiac sign on 1 September 1964, which makes her 58 years old as of 2022. She spent her childhood in Remington, Indiana, but has remained tight-lipped about her childhood details. Mays is famous for playing Tammy in the science fiction comedy-drama TV show “The Greatest American Hero” between 1981 and 1983. She also appeared in many plays in Manhattan in the ‘90s. Moreover, she is credited with her contribution to the documentary film “Namath” in 2012. Her works in the American entertainment industry have seen her become very famous, and she is authoritatively worth around $18 million as of 2022.
