Arch Manning was born to parents Cooper Manning and Ellen Heidingsfelder. He comes from football royalty as a grandson of Archie Manning and nephew of Eli and Peyton Manning.

Last night the star quarterback of Isidore Newman rewrote the history book as he beat the records held by his uncles.

The 18-year-old who chose the University of Texas earlier this year to further his development is trying to make his dreams of NFL along with that of his father.

Three decades ago, his father's once-bright career ended due to an illness. And now Arch will look to break the curse as he is one of the most sought players in college football.

Who Are Arch Manning Parents? Meet Cooper Manning And Ellen Heidingsfelder

Arch Manning was born to parents Cooper Manning and Ellen Heidingsfelder in 2004. The soon-to-be Texas University player, Arch Manning has football genes in his DNA.

Cooper Manning, the father of Arch Manning, was once a decorated collegiate player who had his NFL debut lined up on sight. But unfortunately, he had to quit the sport due to his illness.

His childhood dream was dashed. Cooper was going to be the first son of Archie Manning to make his debut in the franchise his father was a star for 13 seasons.

But all and all, life didn't turn out to be that bad for Cooper. The 48-year-old currently finds himself presenting the show The Manning Hour for Fox Sports and is an entrepreneur who has investments in energy-based companies.

There have only been a few occasions that Cooper opened up to the public about what he felt about his injury. In his 2008 interview, he said if it weren't for his illness, he would have retired with four Superbowl rings.

But the world doesn't run on ifs and buts, and it is now through Arch that Cooper will live his dream as in the past two decades, he saw it through his brothers.

Ellen Heidingsfelder, the mother of Arch Manning is a Louisiana-based attorney and has kept herself out of the public limelight. 

The supportive mother of Arch Manning has been associated with the Manning family for more than two decades, but the only time the woman is captured by the media is during her children's games. 

Who Is Arch Manning Mother Ellen Heidingsfelder?

Ellen Heidingsfelder, the mother of Arch Manning, is an American attorney based in Louisiana. The woman who started her law career in 1994 is a mother of three kids of Cooper Manning.

Born in the birthplace of Jazz and beautiful architecture, Ellen was raised by her parents Dot Heidingsfelder and Dr Charels E Heidingsfelder, alongside her three siblings-Molly, Jane and Charles E Jr.

Raised in a strict Catholic household, it is rumoured that Cooper Manning had to change his religion to marry his longtime girlfriend.

Heidingsfelder completed her high school at the Academy of the Sacred Heart before enrolling at the University of Virginia as a freshman in 1991. 

Loyola Univeristy was Ellen's next destination as she decided to pursue a law degree in 1994. After completing her graduation, Ellen practised law in her hometown, New Orleans, before marrying Cooper in 1999.

Ellen is rarely seen in public and has always stayed reserved in the media. Soon we might see her more as her son tries to break into the NFL in the coming years.

Who Is Arch Manning Sister May Manning?

May Manning, the sister of Arch Manning, like her brother, is an athlete. And no, she doesn't play in the women's football league. 

May is a former volleyball player at Academy of the Sacred Heart, the same school that her mother and her grandmother attended. 

After completing high school at the Academy of Sacred Heart in 2020, May is in her second year at the University of Virginia.

Like the way Arch is currently making waves in college football, two years back, it was his older sister doing the same in volleyball.

May, the captain of her side, led her school, the underdogs going into the finals, against the team who had beaten them earlier in the season.

May was named MVP of the finals, and why wouldn't she be crowned MVP? The girl had 14 kills and showed tenacious defense. And the other reason could be that her mother was also the MVP of the finals many years ago.

May said that the women of the Manning household do get overshadowed by their male counterparts and achievements. But she was happy that, for once, it was Manning females who were receiving the much-deserved attention.

Arch Manning shares a blood relation with his uncles, Peyton and Eli Manning. The quarterback of the University of Texas is the nephew of the two NFL legends.

Born in the famous household of Mannings, Arch is someone who has grown up watching his two uncles dominate America's favorite sport.

And though he could not watch his grandfather play as that was well three to four decades before his birth, Archie Manning has a huge responsibility on his shoulder whenever he steps onto that football field.

1. Peyton Manning

Peyton Manning is one of the few players who has won the Superbowl championship with two different sides. The 46-year-old became the first Manning son of Archie Manning to debut in NFL.

Peyton Manning is one of the greatest players in the Indianapolis Colts' history. There have been arguments about him being one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history. 

Tom Brady fans might be fuming reading that sentence.

The 12-time Pro Bowler, four-time NFL MVP and two-time Super Bowl Champion, Peyton was inducted into the hall of fame in 2021.

2. Eli Manning

If there is one thing that Arch would want from his uncle, Eli, then it is his fabulous track record of staying injury free.

Eli played 210 consecutive games for the New York Giants before bidding goodbye to the league in 2020. 

The two-time super bowl champion Eli Manning and his legacy with the Giants were defined by his availability for his side.

After his nephew, Arch broke his and Peyton's record last night, he took to Twitter to make a light-hearted joke asking how many of the passing yards did Arch throw from under centre.

Arch Manning Salary And Net Worth

As a freshman in college, Arch Manning will have a salary of $10 million and could have a net worth of $5 million before making his debut in NFL. And we aren't the ones claiming this. All the NFL experts, including Darren Rovell, have given this assessment.

His uncles, Peyton and Eli, averaged $8 million and $7.5 million on their rookie deals, and now Arch will probably earn more than them.

The future NFL star saw an increase in his NIL value from $1.6 million to $3.4 million. What is NIL value, you ask?

NIL is the new NCAA rules regarding players' ability to profit off their name, image, and likeness. And Arch is one of the highest-rated freshmen on that list.

Arch Manning College - The Dilemma Ended As He Joined University of Texas

Arch Manning picked the University of Texas as his choice for college in June 2022. This was one of the biggest revelations as many believed it was Alabama that was leading the signature for the quarterback.

Arch announced the news through his Twitter handle on June 23, 2022, and captioned his photo: Committed to the University of Texas.

The announcement seemed to have broken the internet as it quickly notched up thousands of likes within a few hours of posting it.

According to ESPN, Arch had visited many other schools with tremendous NIL, but Cooper Manning's son decided to go with Texas.

It came as a shocker as Texas is currently on the down, but maybe Arch can rejuvenate the once great college football town with his amazing skills.
