Ally Courtnall is stepping up her style on the sidelines. The Swim Search open casting call finalist, who was photographed by Yu Tsai in Atlantic City for the 2021 issue, attended an NFL game and cheered on her husband, Los Angeles Chargers linebacker Eric Kendricks.

The power couple, who met while they were student athletes at UCLA, share a baby boy, Knight, whom they welcomed in May.

The 30-year-old donned a chic shiny leather overshirt and matching shorts set, and paired it with a Chargers graphic tee from clothing brand MVP BAE and funky dangly earrings. She dressed the look up with a fresh and dewy glam moment, including feathered brows, a pink-peach blush, subtle winged eyeliner, wispy lashes and a glossy rosy lip. Her honey brown locks fell smooth and straight in a perfect blowout and she smiled bright on the side of the field.

“Sometimes you have to go through an absolute s--- storm to get to the happiest times of your life🥲 here’s a little photo dump of some of my favorite moments recently!” the Southern California native captioned an Instagram carousel.

In another snap, the model donned a festive red, white and green fuzzy onesie as she posed with her son in on pic and girlfriends in another.

Courtnall, who is the daughter of NHL alum Russ Courtnall, grew up in a super athletic family and playing all sorts of sports. In college, she ran track and exceeded at soccer—she even came close to training for a possible Olympic spot on the national women’s team.

“I didn’t know who I was if I wasn’t an athlete. My whole life, I had been defined by my performance on the field. My body was beat up, but so was my mind. I had some experience with anxiety and depression. And I knew I just had to put my health first,” she said of the difficult decision to step away from playing. “When you’re an athlete, you have a winner-take-all mentality. You have to! But life has more grey areas. It’s taken a long time to shake that perfectionist streak I have, and realize that sometimes when you ‘lose’ something, it’s actually a win because of what you learn and how you grow.”
