Speaking with reporters on Wednesday, Tagovailoa confirmed he had recently married Annah Gore and indicated he intended to keep that part of his private life as private until the news eventually leaked.

Tagovailoa on the wedding:
“It was very special. I don’t know who ended up leaking it, but he 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 tried to do, 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, and, shoot, can’t do anything about it. Guys, I have a wife.”
The news was first reported by Fox Sports 640's Andy Slater on Tuesday, who cited the rare "clergy source" to reveal the nuptials.

Congratulations to the Miami Dolphins’ QB who got married two weeks ago, a clergy source tells me.

Dealing with the news is just part of an important training camp for Tagovaila, who is expected to lead an overhauled Dolphins offense under new head coach Mike McDaniel alongside high-priced wide receiver Tyreek Hill.
Tagovailoa said his marriage had changed little about his outlook on his life and football, with one rather obvious exception in training camp: "No girls for me."
