All About Amy Paternoster – Kenny Pickett’s Soon-to-be Wife
Kenny Pickett had an eventful game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during their mid-October 2022 clash. Pickett, a highly-rated rookie, threw his first touchdown pass, a six-yarder to Najee Harris, in the NFL before sustaining a concussion that forced him to exit the contest. The Steelers were ahead when veteran Mitchell Trubisky took over and led them over the finish line.
Pickett was selected 20th by the Pittsburgh Steelers, the highest of any quarterback during the 2022 Draft. He hopes to recover quickly and deliver on his prodigious potential.
This piece will look at Pickett’s soon-to-be wife, Amy Paternoster.

Kenny Pickett and Amy Paternoster went public with their relationship in April 2021. In late January 2022, Pickett proposed to Kenny, writing on Instagram that he was tired of calling her his girlfriend. He continued:
“Here’s to a lifetime with the person I cherish more than anything in this world. You make me a better person and I could not imagine life without you. I love you more forever and always!!”
Amy shared the news with her Instagram followers, reiterating her commitment to Kenny. She said she felt blessed to have met Kenny and couldn’t wait to share the rest of her life with him. Amy wrote:
“You are my everything: my other half, my best friend, my soulmate. I promise to always be by your side – to always laugh with you, support you, and love you more each and every day. I can’t wait to experience all of God’s blessings with you, and to call you my husband.”

Amy Paternoster retired from football following her graduation from Princeton
Amy, a New Jersey native, was born to Barbara and James Paternoster. She studied economics at Princeton, which included a year in London at the School of Economics. Paternoster also spent a summer working as an analyst with Goldman Sachs.
Paternoster played soccer during her time in school, specializing as a playmaking forward. Unlike her fiance, Amy didn’t go pro, hanging up her soccer boots after her Princeton graduation.

“Would not be who I am today if it weren’t for this game. See you again in some adult pickup league.”
