The name Layla Kiffin is quite familiar among the football fans. Although she herself isn't a player, her father, John Reaves was an All-American quarterback at the University of Florida, and her former husband, Lane Kiffin is currently the head football coach at Florida Atlantic University.
Was Married to Lane Kiffin
Layla Kiffin met her former husband through her father, Monte. During 1999, when Lane was working as a graduate assistant at Colorado State and went to visit his father at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers facility, he first met Layla and was blown away by her charm.
Later, the couple started dating each other and got engaged after three months. Layla’s father, Dan Reaves sweetly detailed the process of Lane asking permission to marry his daughter in an interview. He said,
“The receptionist at my office buzzed me and said Lane was here to see me. I thought he was going to say that he was getting out of coaching and wanted a job. Instead, he asked if he could marry my daughter. I called her to ask her, ‘Is he serious?’ I wasn’t supposed to ruin the surprise. They bought an engagement ring that same day.”

Layla and husband, Lane both got married in 2004. The couple then welcomed their first daughter, Landry in 2005 and son, Presley in 2007. They were again blessed with a third child, son, Knox, in 2009. Layla, during an interview with Knox, shared that she enjoys motherhood and wouldn't start working anyway soon. She said,
“I loved what I did and was really happy with the way my career was going. But since they have arrived I can’t even imagine working. It’s just not for me. We’ve said we want more (kids), but I don’t know. I’m very happy with what I have right now.”
How Did the Couple Separate?
Despite having a beautiful beginning, the couple couldn't live up to the wedding vows for long. The married life of Layla and Lane came to an end in February 2016. Lane, while speaking to Fox News, announced the divorce and stated that the couple will always remain on good terms. Lane said,
“After a lot of careful thought and consideration, Layla and I have mutually decided to divorce. We are fully committed to our kids’ future being our No. 1 priority. We will maintain an amicable relationship with respect for each other as we raise these three wonderful children. We will have no further comments and appreciate respect for our family’s privacy.”
After her split, she now lives a low-key life and devotes her time and effort to raising her three kids.
