Erin Bradshaw is an American equestrian and the daughter of former NFL champion, Terry Bradshaw and his ex-wife, Charlotte Hopkins. Aside from being a champion in her own right, she is part of Terry’s ‘girl dad’ legacy for being one among his many daughters.
For a woman in a sport that involves risk such as horse racing, the Bradshaw daughter is ready for the hard work involved in being a champion. Though now married to Scott Weiss, she appears alongside members of her large family on the Bradshaw Brunch where they give an up-close look into their lives.
While her father is still renowned as one of the greatest Superbowl quarter, his daughter also leads an interesting life. Here is all we found out about her.
Who is Erin Bradshaw?
She is one of the children of retired American footballer, Terry Bradshaw. Erin was born on June 27, 1989, in Westlake, Texas. The 34–year-old’s popularity largely lies in being a famous child of a football legend, Terry Bradshaw.
Details about her education are not so clear. However, her father is known to have attended Woodlam High School before moving to Louisiana Tech University in Ruston where he played collegiate.
1. Erin Bradshaw is an Equestrian
Per her Instagram bio, the Texan-born is a world champion equestrian-she competes in horse riding. The celebrity daughter’s interest in this challenging form of sport is a move away from her father’s legacy as a football player.
She appeared in several championship tournaments over the years with the recent being the Apha show in July 2022 with her horse, John Simmon. Moreover, her career choice has proven that she can start her own legacy.
2. She is Not The Only Child of Her Father
Most of Erin’s popularity comes from being one of her famous father’s two daughters. She and her sister, Rachel are not the only ones who make the former football player and hall Famer a proud dad of a girl child. Their half-sibling through his marriage is also not an exception.
Her older sister Rachel is a country singer who got married to another athlete who played in the NFL. She married Rob Bironas of the Tennessee Titans in 2014. Sadly she lost him tragically in a car accident three months after they tied the knot. The tragedy affected her deeply and it took her many years before she started dating again.
They also have a step-sister, Lacey Hester Bradshaw through their father’s marriage with Tammy Alice Bradshaw. Tammy had her daughter from a previous relationship with David Luttrull. Apparently, Erin’s father considers her his daughter. He revealed this in an interview. By and large, the Bradshaw family is tight-knit.
3. The Texan Native is Married to Scott Weiss
She is married to Scott Weiss since May 6, 2017. They first met her husband in 2012 after which they started a relationship. The pair remained an item and dated for a long time just as well.
They exchanged their marital vows in a private ceremony at the Milestone Barn in Aubrey, Texas.
4. She and Her Husband Run A Horse Business
Erin and her husband run his horse business named Scott Weiss Horses. The business produces younger horses-foals as well as deals with the training of these horses for sports.
Looking at her own obsession with horses, it is not surprising that she ended up marrying another horse enthusiast and even running the business together. Moreover, her husband is also an equestrian in his own right. So far, he competed in the Open Maturity Sweepstakes. Also, he modeled for the menswear CINCH Jeans
5. The 34-year-old Celebrity Child is a Mother
Erin and her husband are the proud parents of a daughter, Jessie Paxton Weiss. They welcomed her in 2021. Before now, Erin waited for five years before she made the decision to become a mother.
While she took her time to start a family, the truth behind her choice is not far from wanting to pick the right time to suit her busy schedule as a professional equestrian.
Purportedly, having a big horse business and starting a family is not an easy decision and hence the number of years she took. However, Erin and Scott may soon have another child since Terry is also optimistic about expanding the Bradshaw family.
6. Her Parent’s Marriage was a Third for Her Famous Father
Looking at her father’s many achievements in the NFL, it is quite shocking that he has an equally colorful marriage history. So far, he has been married four times in total and his marriage with Erin’s mother, Charlotte Hopkins is a third for the retired quarterback.
Her parents tied the knot in 1986 at the Texas Women’s University Campus. Having started on a good footing, the marriage produced his two daughters, Erin and Rachel. Sadly though, the marriage did not outlive them making it one among many failed celebrity marriages. They divorced in 2014 after more than two decades. So far this is Terry’s longest marriage. His other marriages are;
Melissa Babish: Erin’s father married his first wife in 1972. The union was short-lived as they divorced the following year.
Jojo Starbuck: After his first marriage failed, he married his second wife about three years later. Unlike his first marriage, his marriage to the figure skater lasted between 1976 and 1983
Tammy Alice: Having three failed marriages did not deter the NFL hall of Famer. He moved on to his current wife Tammy shortly after parting ways with Erin’s mother. They tied the knot in the same year. Was he cheating on Charlotte?
Apparently, Terry did not make his two daughters part of his and Tammy’s wedding plans. Their absence disturbed his daughters but he corrected it the second time to allow his family to be a part of his newfound love with Tammy. As a result, he organized a renewal which was aired on the Bradshaw Brunch.
7. Erin’s Mother is a Successful Writer
years after her parents parted ways, not much is heard of her mother. As it is, her mother, Charlotte is pursuing her writing career despite living quietly.
Charlotte is now a freelance writer and reporter whose work has made it to recognized publications. Her most successful work is the 365 Days of Family Fun(2019). Her other books are;

8. The Equestrian is Also Cast in Her Family’s Reality Show
She and members of her family are part of the E reality series, The Bradshaw Bunch which revolves around their lives in rural Oklahoma. The show started airing back in 2020. As it is, it reached the top spot of the network’s highest rating show.
Erin’s pregnancy was first revealed on the show which has been described as largely unscripted. The baby’s gender was also confirmed to be a girl. The news was welcomed by many, especially Erin’s father, Terry whose ‘girl dad’ legacy is continuing with his grandchildren.
Moving on, Erin also explained that her father was supportive having always been asking the couple about when they would start having children.
It seems the Bradshaw family has good coordination when it comes to making public appearances. They appeared on Celebrity feud. Thankfully, they won the game.
9. She Featured her Horse at Her Wedding
Over the years, Erin has updated her Instagram with pictures of her horse named John Simon. While the horse has participated in equestrian championships with her, she took it a step further when the horse was made part of her wedding day in 2017.
The horse was present when she exchanged her marital vows with Scott after which they snapped pictures with it. Moving on, she revealed her desire to snap with the horse in a vow renewal. For now, the vow renewal is still a dream of hers.
10. Erin Bradshaw’s Net Worth
Erin is estimated to have a net worth of over $1 million. At the moment she has not verified this amount. Looking at her work as an equestrian and reality star, it will not be surprising if she has more than this amount.
The second child of the former NFL player is a part of her father’s career success. Her father who stands at a height of 1.91 m has a net worth of $45 million.
