Livvy Dunne WAG Life

Former LSU gymnastics star Olivia "Livvy" Dunne is transitioning into her new role as a prominent WAG (wives and girlfriends) with flair and enthusiasm. Dunne, who concluded her gymnastics career with a national championship, is now focusing on supporting her boyfriend, Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Paul Skenes.

Dunne reveled in the moment, supporting Skenes at PNC Park as he overpowered Shohei Ohtani with three blazing 100+ mph fastballs in the first inning Wednesday night.

During the game, Shohei Ohtani managed to get some payback by hitting a home run off Skenes in the third inning. Despite this, the 22-year-old pitcher emerged victorious, improving his record to 3-0 after allowing three runs over five innings.

Skenes, the first overall pick in last year’s MLB Draft, has quickly made a name for himself with his impressive pitching skills. During a recent game against the Dodgers, Skenes struck out Shohei Ohtani and Mookie Betts on a combined seven pitches in the first inning, a performance that left fans in awe. Dunne was there to cheer him on, sharing her excitement on Instagram and posting videos from PNC Park.

Dunne’s transition into the WAG era has been embraced by both the MLB and her millions of social media followers. MLB even highlighted her presence at Skenes' debut game, noting her enthusiasm and support. Despite not being in control, as she was in gymnastics, Dunne expressed confidence in Skenes’ abilities, stating,

“I know he’s got this and I just have a lot of confidence in him.”
