Jeanette Dousdebes Rubio is the name of Marco Rubio’s wife, and although she apparently was once a NFL cheerleader, she has spent most of her time out of the glare of the political limelight. But now that Marco Rubio’s 2016 presidential campaign is official, Jeanette has begun to open with stories that might give everyone a hint about how she’d be as a potential First Lady.
In a related report by the Inquisitr, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign also started revving its engines, and the first thing they did was to hire the real life version of Scandal’s Olive Pope in order to handle Hillary’s little issues that may hold her back from being the first female President of the United States. Speaking of campaign problems, some believe that Marco Rubio’s heritage may actually help him take the minority vote from Clinton.
The reason why you probably have not heard the name Jeanette Dousdebes Rubio up until recently is because she is shy.
“If he’s out there, I feel like I have to be here for [my kids], to give them that reality,” Jeanette admits. “In the future, if I have to do it, of course I’ll do it, but in general, I am shy.”
Of course, Mrs. Rubio was not always shy, since she and her sister, Adriana Dousdebes, were both cheerleaders for the Miami Dolphins during the 1990’s. Jeanette was even featured in the cheerleading squad’s first swimsuit calendar. The funny part was that Marco was a high school football player, yet his wife was the only one who ever was part of the NFL.
“I always wanted to be an NFL player,” Marco Rubio told the Tampa Bay Times. “And now I’m going to have to tell my kids that the only one of her two parents that ever touched an NFL field was her mom.”
Of course, sports also brought Jeanette Dousdebes Rubio to the attention of Marco. Even though both attended South Miami High School in Florida, they did not meet until one fateful volleyball game.
“I was at the (West Miami Recreation Center) one day playing volleyball and he spotted me,” Jeanette explained. “So he asked questions and friends put something together where we would go to the movies and he would sit next to me and then — you know, coincidentally. Throughout the whole movie he would start talking to me, which I thought was a little annoying.”
Now Jeanette Dousdebes Rubio’s cheerleader role is to promote her husband’s 2016 presidential campaign. According to ABC, she explained how she became Marco Rubio’s wife, recalling how he proposed on the Empire State Building only to take back the engagement ring because he was afraid it would fall of the building.
“So he put it on and he goes, ‘Okay, let me take it off and we’ll put it, I’ll put it back on downstairs,'” Jeanette recalled.
You probably would not expect this, but Jeanette also claims the Republican hopeful is a big fan of rap and hip-hop.
“He likes to sing. I don’t know about anymore,” Jeanette recalls. “There’s a couple [songs he sings].”
She also admits that she thought Marco’s 2016 presidential campaign is something that’d never happen in real life.
“He talked about it, but it’s one of those things that people talk about, you know, when they’re young,” She said. “We never thought it was going to come true.”
