Who dat? Why, it's Heather Carr, recent NOLA transplant after her husband of 11 years signed with the Saints in 2023 following nine seasons with the Oakland-turned-Las Vegas Raiders.
They were students at Fresno State when they met, Derick trying his darndest to get a cute waitress' attention.
"I was just like 'Ugh, I don't want anything to do with that,'" Heather recalled to Fresno's ABC 30. "The typical football guy, right?"
But when she purposely gave him a wrong phone number, he came back to the restaurant to give her his digits—and tell her that, when she was ready, he'd pick up the phone. A few weeks later, she found out Derick wasn't so typical.
"Some days he comes home, he's quiet, he's tired," she reflected of her star QB. "Just making sure he always knows that I'm here to encourage him, support him, do I need to do anything for you."
When it was time to move across the country, she stocked up on Saints gear in all sizes for sons Dallas, 10, Deker, 7, and Deakon, 4, and daughter Brooklyn, who turns 3 in November.
