Family life is important to NFL player Marcus Spears. The Dallas Cowboys defensive-end says that his 18-month-old daughter and his wife Aiysha Smith have influenced his life in a positive way:”I don’t do the same things I used to anymore,” Spears said. “I don’t go out to clubs. My family has become more important to me – my wife and my daughter.”

Spears’ sister Deidre has also noticed the positive changes that family life has had on her brother:”When you start having children, you start appreciating family – what the true definition of a family is,” Deidre Spears said. “Having a baby girl and his wife [Aiysha], all that stuff makes a difference.”

Marcus has an 18-month-old daughter named Macaria and he is expecting his second child in April.

  1. BCK Thanks for sharing this. We need more like him. I think it so sweet.

  2. I fully agree with his sister’s statement. Once you have children you realize the value of family. It’s no longer all about you. It’s actually a beautiful thing.

  3. Nice story. DeMarcus Ware (Spears’ team mate on my Cowboys) had a similar story.

  4. Marcus,

    We will be watching the Cowboys tonight 9-21-2008 cheering you all the way. You, Aiysha and Macaria are in our prayers. Wishing you all the best. I am very proud of you in all ways. All things are possible through Jesus Christ.
