Chicago Cubs WAGs

Chicago Cubs WAGs

Could 2016 be the year the Curse of the Billygoat is broken? Chicago Cubs fans certainly hope so. The Cubs are having an out-of-the-park season so far —remaining 1st in National League Central for the first time since 1945, and making All-Star history by becoming just the second team ever to have its entire infield start an All-Star Game.

The energy around Wrigleyville has been more electrified than ever, with hopes of securing the World Series for the first time in 108 years. With all the fanfare and attention surrounding the players, so too comes an interest in those who support the players both on and off the diamond, the WAGs (Wives and Girlfriends). on July 16 Cubs Charities will host, ‘Cubs Wives Present Players’ Favorite Things Baskets.’

Though these WAGs induce envy from female fans, their duties range from managing their own careers, organizing charity events and fundraisers, taking care of the kids and home, to continuously supporting their men on the field.

Brittany Arrieta

They met in elementary school and began dating as juniors in high school. Wife of Jake Arrieta, Brittany, actively supports her husband both from the stands, and on social media. We get a sense she might be the mama cub of the WAGS crew.


Jessica Cahill

Jessica and her husband Trevor, pitcher for the Cubs, are active supporters of animal rights. They welcomed their first child together in February of this year, on the first day of spring training. They live out in Arizona so she doesn’t do much with the Chicago based WAGS.

Emily Vakos

We wouldn’t forget about Anthony Rizzo but it seems he’s moved on from his rumored former flame Chelsea Smith and now dating Ms. Vakos for about 5 months now. He recently started sharing photos of their outings together. She’s an Arizona State alum who was a nutritional intern with the Cubs in February 2016, so maybe that’s how they met.
