For the Moss household, football runs in the family. From the Pro Football Hall of Famer Randy Moss to his son Thaddeus Moss, the Moss’s have made quite a name for themselves. But while most of the family is well known in the footballing world, there are very little details about Randy’s wife, Lydia Griffith Moss. In light of her family’s success, Lydia has flown under the radar. Details about her early life are incredibly hard to come by, and her family is not too keen on sharing information on her. In this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Lydia Moss.
Not a fan of the media:
Little is known about Lydia’s early life. She has kept her distance from the media and is not too keen on sharing personal details. She married Randy after the player had split from his former partner, and mother of his children, Libby Offutt. Even though Lydia and Randy are not often seen together, he did thank her in his Pro Football Hall of Fame speech, for treating his children as her own. And while Lydia can be seen accompanying Randy to a few events, she rarely takes interviews.
Lady Before & step-children:
While Moss is currently enjoying his married life with Lydia Moss, he was previously in a relationship with Libby Offutt.
