"Yeah, it was very special," Tagovailoa said. "I don't know who ended up leaking it, but you must have been waiting outside the courthouse for an entire week or something.

"For me, I love to keep my life as private as possible. and that's what we try to do with me, my wife and my family. But obviously in this world, that's not how it is.

"It's almost kind of disrespectful, if you will, by doing that. But it is what it is. I can't do anything about it. Guys, I have a wife."

Tagovailoa also said that his marriage won't change his focus on the 2022 season. The No. 5 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft is entering his third season. Tagovailoa was born in Ewa Beach, Hawaii, and attended Saint Louis High School in Honolulu.
