Landyn Hutchinson opened up in a recent podcast interview about her life as the wife of an NFL star when her husband, Steve, was a defensive lineman in the league from 2001 to 2012.

Hutchinson, who has built an impressive social media presence with a lifestyle blog and Instagram page, appeared on «The Skinny Confidential» and opened up about her relationship with her husband when he was playing in the NFL. The two have been married for 26 years and she supported her husband while he played for the Seattle Seahawks, Minnesota Vikings and Tennessee Titans.

He took a look at what life was like at the start of Steve’s career and discussed his relationships with other NFL wives and girlfriends during that time. She said interacting with them was like any other job where she hung out with the people she liked and avoided the people she didn’t like. But there was at least one thing that stood out.

«It’s interesting, you know, a lot of them are resentful just because I think they gave up whatever career and life they had for their husband to go through with this,» Hutchinson said on the podcast. «But in my mind, I was given a position and I fell in love with a wonderful man who turned out to be very good at what he did and I took that as my job.

«So my job became: I’m going to be the best wife, I’m going to keep fit, I’m going to run a great house, I’m going to have beautiful children.» that… Here’s the thing, I’m a 50’s wife at heart. No one can take that away from me. I wanted to dine around the table… I honestly think it’s a lost art.

«All I have and all I can control in this world is my house and what happens inside it,» he said. «There’s a lot going on in the world, but that’s what I can keep close to home. I just assumed that. That was my job. I’m not going to complain. There are a million people who would trade places with me.»
