As we’ve said here many times, Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema likes to keep his personal life close to the vest – especially including details that surround his new wife, Jen, and how they met.
But Jen Bielema did her first television interview recently with WISC-TV, which gave some information about the background of the relationship. The 27-year-old Jen said that she didn’t know that her now-husband, 42, was the coach at Wisconsin until four months into the courtship.
She also shared a sensitive side of the Badgers’ head man (don’t tell Urban Meyer about that) and that they plan to have children sooner rather than later.
Most of all, though, we learned of Bret Bielema’s pick-up line when he first approached his future wife in a Sin City casino: “What brings you to Vegas?”
Smooth, Bret, real smooth.
