Colin Kaepernick and Heidi Russo

Heidi was still supported by her parents, who promised to help her, but she gave her son up for adoption, as she was convinced that she wouldn’t be able to take care of him. Her son was ultimately adopted by Rick and Theresa Kaepernick, who had lost their biological children to heart defects. The couple kept in touch with Russo and would reportedly often send her photos until he turned seven, and they then lost contact.

Relationship Status

Despite being a public figure, Heidi isn’t too keen on sharing much with the media, however, she has spoken about her teenage relationship. Subsequently, she married Heath Russo, with whom she has three sons, Michael, Ethan and Alex. The family seems to be living a happy and prosperous life together, and reside in Denver, Colorado.

She became famous when she tried contacting Colin after he became a renowned sportsman, however, he decided to stay away from his biological mother, as he reportedly didn’t want to “betray” his adoptive parents. Nonetheless, Russo continues trying to reunite with her son. Speaking about the choice she made, she stated that she regrets things she’s done, but still strongly believes that she made the right decision.

Heidi has even sent him messages and tweets on social media.

One time, she criticized him for not standing during the National Anthem, with the tweet reading “There’s ways to make change w/o disrespecting & bringing shame to the very country & family who afforded you so many blessings.” Some people agreed with her, while others harshly spoke about her actions. One person went on to tell her to “shut up” and she “gave him up because he’s half black”.

Another person wrote that he’s constantly dealing with racism, and she shouldn’t publicly shame him, concluding “We see why he doesn’t want to know you”. We hope that things work out between them, and they find a resolution to their problems.
