Sean McVay was the youngest head coach in the NFL’s modern history when he was hired by the Los Angeles Rams at the age of 30 years old. In that same season, he turned around the Rams from the league’s lowest-ranked offense to the best-scoring team in the 2017 season. It was also the Rams’ first winning season since 2003 and their first playoff berth since 2004.
McVay was then named the 2017 AP NFL Coach of the Year. On top of that, he was also the youngest head coach to win a playoff game and the youngest to appear in the Super Bowl. However, in this article, we are here to talk about Sean McVay’s wife Veronika Khomyn.

Sean McVay and Veronika Khomyn reportedly met in 2011 in Washington D.C. when he was still the tight ends coach for the Washington Football team (formerly known as the Washington Redskins). There is no information about when the couple started dating, but Veronika Khomyn posted a photo on Instagram that seemingly confirmed their relationship.
When Sean McVay was hired by the Los Angeles Rams to be their head coach, Veronica Khomyn followed him to fully support the new venture of her partner.
After years of dating, Sean McVay finally popped the question to her girlfriend while they were on vacation in Cannes, France.
Khomyn has been fully supportive of Sean, especially since moving to Los Angeles for his first head coaching job. During the Rams’ 2018 Super Bowl run, Veronika was seen wearing a shirt that says “McBae” with a picture of Sean’s face during a playoff game.
She was also in-arena during Super Bowl LIII to support her partner and the Los Angeles Rams when they faced off against the New England Patriots.
Unfortunately, the Rams lost. Despite the defeat, the couple flew to a sunny location to celebrate Valentine’s Day and to help Sean McVay get over the post-Super Bowl blues.

Rams, Khomyn’s ability to be fluent in both Russian and Ukrainian allows her to serve clients who are looking to expand their real estate portfolios.

In June 2022, McVay married Khomyn in a lavish wedding in Beverly Hills just a few months after McVay led the Rams to a Super Bowl victory. It was around this time that McVay also purchased a large farmhouse in Hidden Hills, Calif., in Los Angeles County for $14 million. Just a year later, the couple announced on social media that Khomyn was expecting their first child. The couple welcomed the child on October 24, 2023, named Jordan John McVay.
“Everybody kind of tells you what to expect, and it couldn't even be as good as everybody says,” McVay said. “And they certainly talked about what a special moment it was. Just amazing how well my wife handled it and what a stud she was throughout that whole process, and even yesterday. The people were amazing in terms of the nurses, the doctors, and their help. So he's here, he's healthy, he's feeling good. And what a blessing it is.”
Despite having a high-profile partner, Veronika Khomyn holds her own as a realtor and businesswoman. There is no question that the couple supports each other’s endeavors, and they seem to be doing it smoothly as they seem to be a perfect couple.
