Lolo Jones does not have a husband, but she tries her best to find one. Lolo has faced great difficulty finding the right partner, and we believe her 2012 interview has something to do with it.

In 2012 Lolo said that her virginity was the gift she wanted to give her husband. But it looks like this one line has massively impacted her dating life.

Lolo recently broke up with a man with whom she was chatting for eight months. She said he had friend-zoned her. Yikes!

Now the Olympic athlete is in the news, as she says at the age of 40, she dreams of becoming a mother. And thanks to science, that isn't impossible.

Lolo is currently under a series of IVF treatments and has frozen her eggs so that she and her future partner can have a small healthy family.

Who Is Lolo Jones Husband? Boyfriend And Relation

Lolo Jones does not have a husband, surprised? But some of you might have already known this fact, as the Olympian has talked about her virginity with great pride.

But she was in a relationship for a short time last year. The Olympic hurdler was in a relationship with a man to whom she had chatted for eight months.

Sadly the relationship ended as the man with whom she was chatting gave her mixed signals. In an interview, Lolo said she blocked the person she had been chatting with as her heart could no longer take it.

The two-time gold medalist said he gave her many contradictory messages and spoke about marriage and children but would friend zone her. The Olympian certainly got owned there.

The 40-year-old is public about her dating life and has repeatedly shared that she is a virgin and intends to stay one until she's married.

Lolo Jones in 2018 shared on her Instagram handle that Blake Griffin was one of the worst dates in her entire lifetime.

Lolo has previously dated some famous men, including the NBA player and supermodel Kendall Jenner's ex-boyfriend Blake Griffin. Lolo was quite unkind towards Blake as she shared that he was a terrible kisser and was the worst date of her life.

Jones almost gave up her virginity in 2018 after being linked with another NBA star Jimmy Butler. She certainly has a thing for NBA players.

In one of Jimmy's photos, Lolo commented, "Welp, there goes my virginity." And the NBA star cheekily replied, saying, "Messing with me, things come and go quickly. Pun intended."

But that's their only interaction, and their online flirting didn't result in any date nights. In 2012 Lolo was linked with New York Jets player Tim Tebow as they shared the same beliefs.

Though it was never confirmed whether the two ever dated each other, they would have certainly been the perfect match. Unlike Lolo, Tim is now married and is planning to have children.

In a conversation with Kevin Hart in 2020, the hurdler said that the candidness was certainly a mistake as it killed her dating life. And a year later, Lolo went on a massive rant on her Instagram handle.

In her long rant, the athlete said that she has options but is just bored with dating. Lolo said that this resulted from her keeping high hopes in her relationship, which have all ended miserably.

The woman determined to keep her leg closed till she's married is said to have been routinely taunted by men for her resolve. Jones said that her dating life had left her fatigued, and she prays to God to enable her to meet her spouse.

Lolo has recently shared that not only she wants to be married but also wants to have kids. The bobsledder said in her latest post that she is inspired by Tamron Hall, who had her first child at 48.

We hope that the Olympic athlete soon finds the right partner for herself. But with her beliefs, the Lord above might have to help her out on here.

Her father was the victim of systematic racism and went through a dark segregation phase. Lolo said she was proud of her parents for fighting through all at a time when interracial dating was frowned upon.

As Lolo's father was in prison, her mother held down two jobs to raise their three children. Lolo knows how hard it is to be a good mother and is massively proud to have been raised by an independent woman like Lori Jones.

Currently, Lolo is on her journey of becoming a parent, has frozen her eggs, and is searching for the right partner to start a family with.

From her Instagram page, it is clear that the Olympic veteran lives a lavish lifestyle. Though she might not have been part of the USA's winter Olympic team, Lolo says she only plans to retire after the 2024 Olympics.

Outside of her track and field races, she has appeared in shows including Dancing with the Stars, Celebrity Big Brother, and The Challenge. The athlete reached the finals of the big boss but failed to win the show. 

Where Is Lolo Jones From? Lolo Jones Ethnic Background

Lolo comes from a family that had to live paycheck to paycheck. She is of mixed ethnicity: an African American of Norwegian and French descent.

In 2015, Lolo didn't claim her African-American roots, for which she got massively criticized on Twitter. In a now-deleted tweet, Lolo shared her personal story of being biracial.

But three years ago, before that incident, Lolo had tweeted, "I'm biracial. I'll never be Caucasian or African-American enough to fulfill expectations for either race."

Lolo had previously stated her feeling toward the racism her father had to go through. At one point, her family had to live in the basement of a church.

Though she had to face many hurdles in her life during her childhood days, she ended up clearing those hurdles on and off the track.

Lolo completed her education at Louisianna University with a full track scholarship and went on to represent her country in Olympics. Though known for her outspoken nature, Lolo, in recent years, has made headlines for the intimate details about her personal life rather than her field prowess.
