When it comes to the wives and girlfriends (WAGs) of superstar baseball players we mostly see beauty only but in the case of Nina Altuve, we have both beauty and brains. She is the wife of MLB superstar Jose Altuve. Nina is a bioanalyst who found her soulmate in her teenage years and after dating for some time married him in 2006.
Nina Altuve was born under the birth sign on Aquarius on February 2, 1992, as a Giannina Elizabeth Cimetta Sandoval in Venezuela. She is a Venezuelan and is of Hispanic descent.
She was the only daughter among 3 children. She had two brothers named Alfredo David and Justin Emilio. They were raised by her mother in Maracay, Aragua which is a city in north-central Venezuela, near the coast of the Carribean.
Nina got a Bachelor’s Degree Bioanalyticsics from the University of Carabobo.
The love story of Nina and her husband Jose Altuve is a classic teenage sweetheart story. They met as teenagers and started dating. Eventually, this led to the blossoming in the romance between the two. They got married around October of 2006. This means that they celebrated their 12th anniversary in 2018.
On the 1st of November in 2016, they were blessed with the birth of their first child. They named her Melanie A. Altuve. Using the money from their jobs the family of three have traveled a lot and have been to places such as the Dominican Republic and Punta Canta.
Altuve is a well-educated woman and has a degree in bioanalytics so she is related to the research field. Bioanalytics deals with the research of biological organisms and resources. She isn’t working in any company as of now but is a housewife. However, her husband earns a lot of money. In fact, baseball players’ earnings have been labeled ‘Yankee Money’ due to their absurd amounts.
Her husband annually earns $4.5 million and his net worth is around $13 million but from contract extensions and T.V right these figures could skyrocket soon. As a family, they own a Range Rover and a Lexus which have a combined cost of more than $362 thousand.
