Catherine Mooty is the former wife of sports legend Troy Aikman. The exes tied the knot a year after dating, blending their families as each had kids from previous relationships.

While Troy brought along two daughters from his first marriage, Catherine brought two sons from her past relationship into the family. Though her ex-husband is well-known, the father of her kids is not a public figure.

Catherine Mooty's Life

Catherine's birthday is on October 13, although it seems she has not publicly shared her year of birth. She has two children from a previous marriage and is a very proud mother.

Her love for her children seems to be a reflection of her own upbringing. She grew up in a close-knit family. She recently marked Father's Day with several photos of her father, George, on Instagram, describing him as her "north star." Her caption read:

"You are strong in your resolve, steadfast in your beliefs and quick with your 'corny' jokes! 😊😊You are always here for our family and we are so blessed to have you as our Dad and GrandDude!"

Not only did Catherine send a beautiful shoutout to her father on social media, but she also gave a heartwarming tribute to her mother, Pam, on Mother's Day. She gave a glimpse into her childhood by sharing some of her mother's old photographs on her Instagram.

Troy had been very careful about what he posted online since they got married.

She penned an emotional tribute, calling her mom the "sweetest" woman, a close friend, and a mentor in her life. She concluded by saying, "Thank you for your shining example and unconditional love!"

Catherine has maintained a cordial relationship with her former husband, Jerry Mooty, an attorney in luxury real estate and the father of her two children. Catherine's ex-husband has a strong bond with their children and regularly sees them. He has also moved on with his life and is married to another woman.

While active on social media, the mother of two has been a victim of online impersonations. In August 2022, she posted a photo of a man on her account and urged her followers to block and report the page of the imposter.

The Marriage of Catherine Mooty and Troy Aikman

Catherine and Troy exchanged vows in September 2017 in a beautiful ceremony by the beach in Santa Barbara, California, after the retired football superstar proposed to her in Lake Como, Italy.

The wedding was intimate and uncomplicated, with immediate family members and friends in attendance. The ceremony was brief, and they returned home shortly after.

Troy had been very careful about what he posted online since they got married. He was cautious about sharing personal information about their family. However, Catherine regularly shares images of their children, all of whom attended the same private school in Dallas, Texas.

There is a lot of love and support in Catherine's family. Troy served as a coach for his stepson's high school football team. The family of six also enjoys outdoor activities like hiking, biking, and paddle boarding.

But Troy is more than just a loving parent; he serves as Fox's principal NFL analyst. Before joining Fox, he gained recognition as one of the greatest players in NFL history, as a quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys.

He skillfully guided his team to new heights, and they won three Super Bowls (XXVII, XXVIII, and XXX). He retired after the 2000 season, and in February 2006, was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

Following six years of marriage, Troy and Catherine parted ways. In July 2023, a source disclosed that the former couple had officially finalized their divorce.

The news reportedly came almost two months after Troy was publicly seen with his new flame. However, despite their split, the pair still maintain relationships with each other's kids.

Catherine has two handsome sons from her first marriage — Val and Luke. Val, born on July 4, 2001, is interested in music and is currently focused on building a career in the industry. He released his debut song, "Track," and regularly posts on his TikTok account.

As for her youngest son, Luke, born on November 7, 2003, he graduated from the Episcopal School of Dallas. It is not known what his career will be, but his future seems bright. Luke's mother paid a birthday tribute to him in November 2022 on Instagram, sharing several photos from his childhood including shots with family.

Happy 19th Birthday! @lukemooty. You bring so much energy and FUN to everyone around you! Keep shining your bright light. I love you so much!" the proud mom captioned her post. Catherine also marked her son's 20th birthday this year and expressed that she adores him very much, and that he is a blessing.

In addition to having notable parents, the boys have well-known relatives. Val and Luke's grandmother is the sister of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, the team their stepfather played for. In addition to Val and Luke, Catherine is a doting stepmother to Troy's daughters, Jordan Ashley and Vanessa Marie.

Catherine Mooty Is the Co-founder of Luxeliner

Catherine has built a reputation for herself even though she is not a public figure like her husband. She co-founded Luxeliner, a high-end mobile boutique selling luxury goods.

She remained humble about her business even though her innovative business grew in popularity. Her famous boutique-on-wheels company was not advertised on her personal social media accounts.

There was a Twitter account devoted to Luxeliner, although it has been dormant since its last tweet in 2014. It's unclear whether the business shut down or is still running.

Apart from being an entrepreneur, Catherine is also a philanthropist. On March 24, 2022, she participated in a charity event hosted by the Sadie Keller Foundation, an organization that provides funding to families fighting childhood cancer.

This charitable lady spends ample time with her family. In addition, the family matriarch uses Instagram to mark significant milestones and memorable travels.
