Alecia Yelich is an American real estate agent who works for the Compass real estate firm but she is best known as the mother of popular Major League Baseball (MLB) player, Christian Yelich. The celebrity mother is also an internet personality.
Christian Yelich’s mom Alecia Yelich is without any doubt, one of the most important women in his life. From his social media posts and what he says about the woman, it is clear that he adores her a great deal. Christian would tell anyone who cares to know how his mother has been very supportive of him and what he does.
As far as he is concerned, he wouldn’t have become a professional baseball left fielder who plays in MLB without Alecia, who encouraged him not to quit the sport when he wanted to. Christian currently plays for the Milwaukee Brewers after playing for the Miami Marlins from 2013 to 2017.
His career has been an impressive one as he has thrice received the Silver Slugger Award; these were in 2016, 2018, and 2019. Earlier in 2014, he won the Gold Glove Award. The left fielder drafted in the first round of the 2010 MLB draft is also a two-time All-Star, the NL MVP of 2018, and was named to the All-MLB First Team in 2009.
That’s not all, he is a two-time NL batting champion and has won the NL Hank Aaron Award twice. In all of these, Christian has never failed to acknowledge his mom for being his support system. Because of how often and highly he speaks of the woman, she has become someone who piques the interest of a lot of people, especially fans of baseball.
Alecia Yelich Is One of The Grandchildren of Late American Footballer, Fred Gehrke
Alecia Yelich’s son, as you would easily find, was born and brought up in Thousand Oaks, the second-largest city in Ventura County, California. There, he attended a public high school located in the Westlake neighborhood called Westlake High School. Details of his upbringing are not hard to find but the same can’t be said about his mother.
Facts about Alecia’s early life are hard to come by. That, and the fact that her son’s career has made her someone a lot of people are curious about, has led to the publication of so much inaccurate information about her upbringing and family background.
It is said that Alecia Yelich is 54 year old as she was born on the 20th of September 1968. As claimed, her place of birth was in Woodland, a city you would find in Yolo County, California. She was reportedly raised there and attended El Camino Real Charter High School, an independent charter secondary school located in the area.
In all of these, we can confirm that she is the granddaughter of Clarence Fred Gehrke. Better known as Fred Gehrke, he was an American football player and executive. Gehrke played in the National Football League from 1940 to 1950 for teams like the Cleveland / Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 49ers, and Chicago Cardinals. He later became the general manager of the Denver Broncos and served from 1977 to 1981. Amongst other things, he is remembered for designing the Los Angeles Rams logo.
