The history of American Baseball has only been beautified by people like the American-born baseball star, Giancarlo Stanton. It is common knowledge that Giancarlo played as an outfielder for Florida’s Miami Marlins from 2010 through to 2017 and is currently asserting himself with the New York Yankees which he joined in 2018.
The talented baseballer’s quick and deadly strikes have created insurmountable obstacles to his opponents in the past and still do. On several occasions, he has represented his country in international baseball games, including the 2013 World Baseball Classic.
If Stanton didn’t settle for baseball, he would have been proving his worth in football. Apparently, he is a multi-talented athlete as he received three different offers from prestigious institutions to join its football team.
Giancarlo Stanton’s Parents
Born in Los Angeles’ Panorama City in California on the 18th day of November 1989, the baseball player is an American of mixed heritage; he is of Irish and African-American descent.
Giancarlo’s father Mike Stanton, and his mother, Jacinta Garay worked for the Postal Service. They were married for 10 years and parted ways when Giancarlo was only 8. Although Mike and Jacinta could no longer live together as life partners, they lived in the same neighborhood so as to raise their son together.
Records have it that Stanton gained his formal education at Verdugo Hills High School in Tujunga, California, and also at Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, California.
After several years in the minor league, Giancarlo Stanton joined the major league through the Miami Marlins at the age of 20 and was recorded as the third-youngest player in the history of the Miami Marlins. From 2010 till date, the baseball star has done well establishing himself as a super-valuable player for his team. Apart from once being named the best player of his team, he has garnered several awards for his stellar performance in the bat-and-ball game.
Wife Or Girlfriend, Is Giancarlo Stanton Married?
One very interesting fact about this four-time All-star American baseball player is that he does not talk much about his private life, neither does he share any substantial information about his existence on social media. Obviously, one needs no soothsayer to tell that the baseball star likes to keep his private life private. But then, it is known that he is single and, it has been suggested that he makes a deliberate effort to show that he is not romantically attached to anyone. Meanwhile, he has put to rest rumors insinuating he might be sexually attracted to his gender. According to Stanton, he’s straight and not against the union of marriage. He hinted that he’s still single as he’s yet to meet the ideal woman of his dream.
In spite of the mystery surrounding the baseball player’s love life, suggestive information about his would-be lover has circulated from time to time. Not long ago, Giancarlo made an Instagram post that triggered a rumor about him having something special with Portuguese model, Sara Sampaio. But so far, nothing has proven this to be true, it’s as though he and Sara are just good friends.
More recently, Giancarlo was linked to another model, Raquel Vera who resides in Miami. Now, the big questions about the alleged affair have been asked by fans but Giancarlo Stanton is yet to make any comment about it. Being his typical self, he has neither confirmed nor refuted the claim. Nonetheless, it is believed in several quarters that the two are lovers.
While the supposed relationship between Giancarlo and Raquelis remains unconfirmed, people have been striving to know a thing or two about the model believed to have won the baseballer’s heart. This quest has been largely unsuccessful as almost nothing is known about her apart from the fact that she’s a model who has appeared in a handful of music videos. She has shared some of the videos on social media platforms and has appeared in three different videos since January 2017.
Meanwhile, Giancarlo Stanton is yet to share any photo or video featuring Raquel on his social media accounts; the only personal content you will find on the accounts are those featuring his mother.
His Height, Weight, and Body Stats
To a certain extent, the physical attributes of a baseballer determine performance. In this regard, Stanton has nothing to worry about as he has a good height and is in perfect shape.
Sporting dark brown eyes and black hair, the professional baseball player is 6 feet 6 inches tall and weighs 109 kg. We are yet to confirm other details of his body stats.
