Hines Ward’s wife, Simone’s mother is Caucasian and her father is African American.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Indianapolis Colts expressed major interest in him, visiting him multiple times to meet with him.
I think a lot of people are asking this because of the obvious chemistry that Hines Ward shares with dance partner (and possible eventual girlfriend? Anyway, turns out that the Honda Civic Hines was riding in had been reported stolen – by the woman who was driving it.
She had reported it stolen earlier, and after finding it, had totally forgot to report the car as ‘found’. Personally, I have so many cars that I too would forget about something as trivial as reporting one of them was STOLEN!
Aside from his career in the NFL, Ward has appeared in various forms of television and film media, including the reality TV series Dancing With The Stars, and brief cameos in the 2012 film The Dark Knight Rises and in the television series, The Walking Dead. His family moved to Atlanta and East Point, Georgia, when Hines Jr. convinced a family court that Kim could not raise Hines Jr. Ward would later be reunited with his mother at age 7. did not support Ward with child support or visit Ward regularly with Ward stating that he talks with his father about once every two years.
He was a studio analyst for NBC's Football Night in America from 2012 to 2015. Under the guidance of coach Mike Parris at Forest Park High School in Forest Park, Georgia, Ward showcased his athletic skills as a quarterback, and was two-time Clayton County Offensive Player of the Year.
UPDATE: 3/1/2012: First Hines Ward was released by his wife (or he released her, we’re not really sure) and now he has been released by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
