Who Is Harrison Butker’s Wife? All About Isabelle Butker

Harrison Butker has been married to his wife, Isabelle Butker, since 2018.

The Kansas City Chiefs kicker became engaged to Isabelle in 2017 after she converted to Catholicism, and the pair have since centered their faith in their marriage.

In May 2024, Harrison spoke more about his gratitude for his wife in his controversial commencement speech for Benedictine College, describing how her “life truly started” when she became his wife and a mother to their two children: a son, James, and a daughter whose name has not been shared.

“I can tell you that my beautiful wife Isabelle would be the first to say her life truly started when she started living her vocation as a wife and as a mother,” he said. “I’m on this stage today, able to be the man that I am, because I have a wife who leans into her vocation.”

So who is Harrison Butker’s wife? Here’s everything to know about Isabelle Butker and her relationship with the athlete.

Isabelle, who grew up in Georgia, attended Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee. She played for the school’s basketball team all four years, graduating in 2016.

Throughout her college career, she played in 26 games and averaged seven minutes per game, per her profile.

She met Harrison in high school

Isabelle and Butker began dating during their freshman year of high school and attended prom together in April 2013.

They continued dating throughout college despite the distance between them, as Isabelle went to school in Memphis while Harrison was at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta.

“We met in high school,” Harrison said during a January 2023 appearance on the Kansas City Mom Collective podcast. “A lot changes with Division I football, playing in the NFL, but she’s been by my side through everything.”

In 2022, Isabelle joined The Unraveled Podcast and spoke about her experience converting to Catholicism after she began dating Harrison. She said she didn’t grow up very religious and was always more “independent,” but in her senior year of college, as Harrison grew more devout in his faith, she began to explore it more herself.

“He stopped trying to force anything on me, he was just praying for me,” Isabelle said.

After a spiritual experience during Mass, Isabelle said that she felt Catholicism was where she belonged and after she told Harrison, the two of them both broke down crying as he admitted he’d been praying every day for her to convert.

The following Easter, she entered the church, and a month later, she and Harrison were engaged.

They got married in 2018

Harrison proposed to Isabelle in May 2017, just a month after he was drafted into the NFL.

“After almost 7 years of being best friends with this girl, I finally popped the question,” he wrote in a since-deleted post on Instagram. “From the first moments of our relationship, back in freshman year of high school, I always envisioned marrying you and raising a family together.”

He added, “You push me to be a better man and are so patient and forgiving when I fall short. I am truly amazed at how God has worked in your life and in our relationship and pray we continue to learn and grow from each other. Can’t wait to see what our future holds together as a married couple! I love you Izzy.”

The two got married on April 5, 2018, in a Catholic church.

“I will continue to pray for the strength and perseverance to sacrifice for you everyday of our marriage,” he wrote on X (formerly Twitter) after their nuptials. “I love you Izzy!”

They share two children

Isabelle and Harrison welcomed their first child together, James Augustine Butker, in January 2019. They welcomed another child, a daughter, in the years after, though the kicker didn’t make a formal announcement of her birth.

Both kids supported their dad after the Chiefs won the Super Bowl in 2023 when they joined him on the field after his game-winning kick. James and his sister were dressed in Butker jerseys, with James matching his top with red shorts and the little girl donning a red tutu.

During his graduation speech for the Benedictine College class of 2024, Harrison made a series of controversial comments, sharing his thoughts on abortion, President Biden and COVID-19, among other topics. He also mentioned Isabelle when discussing what he believes to be the “most important title” a woman can hold, that of a “homemaker.”

Addressing the women in the room directly, Harrison said they “have had the most diabolical lies told to you,” by people encouraging them to hold jobs and start careers instead of staying home. He said he “would venture to guess that the majority of you are most excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into this world.”

He went on to add that he was “beyond blessed” with his marriage and that Isabelle was most fulfilled by her role as a “homemaker.”

“It cannot be overstated that all my success is made possible because a girl I met in band class back in middle school would convert to the faith, become my wife and embrace one of the most important titles of all: homemaker,” Harrison said.

He continued, “Isabelle’s dream of having a career might not have come true, but if you ask her today if she has any regrets on her decision, she would laugh out loud without hesitation, and say, ‘Hey, no.’ “
