Superbowl Sunday is almost upon us. You probably know who you’ll be rooting for, be it the Indianapolis Colts or the New Orleans Saints, but who will the celebrities moms, dads and families be cheering on?
And while you sit on you couch at home watching the game, how will the Miami bound stars be partying down? Check out what they’ll be doing – and who they’ll be rooting for here!
The Kardashian Family-
As you may know, Kim Kardashian is all hot and heavy with The Saints star Reggie Bush. So, of course the entire family, including the newest addition to the family Mason, will be cheering on New Orleans Saints. Kim’s stepdad, Bruce Jenner, told Sports Illustrated: “If I don’t pick New Orleans, I’m out of the family. I told Reggie he’s under a lot of pressure because this family has very high standards. I have an Olympic gold medal, Lamar (Odom, who is married to Khloe Kardashian) and as an NBA ring, so if Reggie wants in, he has to bring something to the table. He said, “Would a ring and an MVP work?” I said, “That will do it.” We’ll proudly bring you into the family then”
Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie Family
Not only has Brad Pitt done a large amount of work for the city of New Orleans, building homes for the people there, but him and Angie have a house in the French Quarter. Son Maddox is a big big fan and has been spotted wearing his Saints jersey here and there, with Dad Brad even taking him to one of the crucial games where they got to meet the players and walk the field.
The First Family – The Obamas!
Barack Obama will be holding a Super Bowl party at the White House (don’t you wish you had an invite to that?) and he’ll be rooting for Saints. “The president has gone out on a political limb by saying he’s rooting for the Saints. He apparently likes the team’s and the city’s underdog statuses.”
Jerry O’Connell and Rebecca Romijn Stamos Family
Although their twins Dolly and Charlie are too young to get into the game, odds are that dad Jerry O’Connell will be cheering on New Orleans since he was recently spotted wearing a Saints hat and gave a “yeah, I’m a fan” nod.
Emeril Lagasse Family
There is no question that Emeril and his family will be rooting for the Saints. He is a proud son of New Orleans and has been a season ticket holder for 25 years (and has had a suite for five). He’s even taking his wife and son to the Superbowl in Miami to cheer on his home team. He credits himself on helping get Drew Brees on the team saying , “I went up to him at the restaurant and I told him, ‘I don’t want to give you any pressure, but if you sign with the team, I’ll come and cook dinner with you and your wife any time you want.’”
The Harry Connick Jr. Family
Another New Orleans native, Harry Connick Jr., is deliriously happy to have his team go to the big game. He had a gig the night the Saints won the playoff game and said at the show, “We’re going to the Super Bowl, y’all,” Connick said, as the audience cheered. “I’m so happy, I feel like I wanna kiss somebody.” And he did just that, jumping off the stage and planting a kiss on a lady in the audience.
Shaquille O’Neal Family
Shaq is hoping for a Saints victory saying, “This is going to be very special for the great people of New Orleans and Louisiana. The Saints have the talent and the resilience to win. Who Dat?”
Eva La Rue and daughter
The “CSI: Miami” star predicts a Saints win with the score of New Orleans, 27-12. She said, “I like the Saints because they have fleur-de-lis on their helmets. They are therefore “more fashion forward.”
This infamous wrestler is seeing a Saints win saying, “New Orleans, 35-6. New Orleans has an amazing new energy this year, both as a team and a city. They survived Hurricane Katrina, and if they could survive that, they can survive anything.”
Ana Ortiz of Ugly Betty
New mom Ana Ortiz of Ugly Betty fame gave her prediction saying , “My pick is the Saints, 21-17. New Orleans has heart, style and sabor!”
Olympian and mom Dara Torres
Dana Torres has won 12 Olympic medals for swimming, so she knows about winning. And she thinks the Saints have what it takes. She said, “Saints 35-30. As a kid I remember watching the Saints and Archie Manning getting killed. The fans wore bags on their heads. Called themselves the Aints. I can identify with those who were doubted. I don’t think anyone thought at age 40 I could even make the U.S. Olympic team, much less set American records and win medals. So I am for the underdog! Go Saints!!”
Kendra Wilkinson/ Hank Baskett Family
That, my friends, is a no-brainer. Not only will this family be cheering on the Colts but husband and dad Hank will be actually playing in the game. Kendra and the baby Hank Baskett will be in a luxury box in Miami, watching and rooting in style!
The David Letterman Family
Seeing that Letterman is from Indiana, he is – of course – a Colts fan. When Letterman still lived in Indiana, the Colts were playing in Baltimore. But since the team moved to his home state, he’s become a fan.
Sherri Shepherd – Co-host of The View
Sherri is hpoping for a Colts win saying, “Colts 30-27. I have to go with the tried and tested Colts with proven prior Super Bowl experience over the eagerness of the Saints. While I like the Saints, and I’m happy to see them in the Super Bowl, this is the Colts’ year.”
Famous TV Moms! If the Brady Bunch and the Partridge Family were real, their moms would both be cheering on the Colts.
Florence Henderson aka Mrs. Brady predicted a win for the Colts, “Indianapolis, 21-7. I picked the Indianapolis Colts because I’m also from Indiana and we Hoosiers stick together!” Shirley Jones aka Mrs. Partridge said “Peyton Manning is unquestionably the greatest quarterback in history (with a father-brother legacy that is super-extraordinary), and so my practical “game bet” senses tell me Indianapolis will probably take it by three to seven points (at the least).
Other families rooting for the Colts: Billy Bob Thorton, Eminem (the Colts is the only team he likes besides Lions and Pistons), Matthew McConaughey has been spotted at Colts games.
