David Johnson's wife, Meghan Brock
Meghan Brock Johnson is the very pretty wife of David Johnson. The pretty blonde who has been seen alongside the running back with the Arizona Cardinals in the T.V documentary Amazon.com: All or Nothing: A Season with the Arizona Cardinals is none other than his wife, Meghan Brock. Brock has been portrayed beautifully in the documentary. She along with her husband Johnson and their black labrador Emmit are featured in the movie. They are shown to be settling down in Arizona and Brock has a certain charming personality about her that would make one fall in awe of her immediately. When the documentary was made, Brock was just his girlfriend. Meghan Brock was born in Cedar Falls, Iowa. She completed her graduation from Cedar Falls High School and the University of Northern Iowa. Mrs. Brock Johnson is a certified nurse who has taken nursing classes at Kirkwood and also worked at NewAldaya Lifescapes. Johnson and Meghan got engaged in June 2015.

Meghan Johnson and David Johnson announced that they were expecting their first baby soon after their marriage. Mrs. Johnson gave birth to their adorable baby, son David Jerome Johnson Jr. on January 19, 2017. David Jr. was born than expected. Meghan was supposed to give birth closer to the Pro Bowl, which will be played on Jan. 29 in Orlando. The date so close to the Pro Bowl was a threat to the new father's appearance in the game, but due to Johnson's MCL injury, he was anyways not playing the game. They were congratulated by their teammates and fans all around the world on the birth of their son. David Johnson's knee injury not only ended his hopes of playing at the Pre Bowl but also put a scare into the cardinals to end a disappointing 7-8-1 season, but Johnson recovered withing 6 to 8 weeks and was declared fit to play the game. David Johnson said about his wife in an interview, "She's hard on me all the time," Johnson said of his wife of a little more a year, Meghan. "She's the one who's telling me I had a fumble or I missed some catches, and she's learning. That's what happens. She started learning and so now she's able to talk to me about the plays that I messed up on." But he also added that his wife was his biggest critique as well as biggest supporter. "She'll praise me," David said. "She's my biggest supporter and she'll praise me, but she knows me. I'm always trying to see what I messed up on and she'll let me know." Johnson has definitely played upto the hopes and expectations of his wife, his fans and himself. Johnson became the first player in NFL history to have at least 100 yards from scrimmage in the first 15 games of a season.
The net worth of David Johnson is $3 million dollars. The net worth of his wife is currently unknown.
