Emily and her husband Baker make an adorable couple, as several fans have expressed on their social media platforms. Emmy is Baker's Number 1 cheerleader, frequently appearing in matches to cheer him on. Baker was born in April 1995, which means that Emily is four years older. However, the age difference does not affect their relationship, and it seems they have a strong bond.

So, how did Baker meet his wife? The lovebirds met in 2017 through a mutual friend who believed they were a perfect match. Emily thought Mayfield was the typical playboy because of his career and ignored his advances despite numerous attempts to get her attention. According to Sportscasting.com, he even tried following and unfollowing her on Instagram, but his efforts went unnoticed.

Finally, in December 2017, Wilkinson agreed to meet him for lunch. Contrary to what Emily expected, Baker was interested in knowing her and her future plans. The pair hit it off immediately and started dating soon after.

In June 2018, they got engaged after Mayfield proposed during a docuseries wrap party to which he had invited family and friends. During the final interview, when asked how they met, he got down on one knee and surprised her by popping the question. Soon after, the lovers started planning for their wedding.

You truly don't know what you have. I have watched him give his all and change the entire culture in CLE, yet he gets so little credit for it," "He never asks for recognition and continues to carry the weight day in and day out, despite the hate. If you're a true fan, SUPPORT our guys. Baker, and everyone else. The hate does NOTHING for them.

On the other hand, Baker has also expressed his affection towards her. On their first wedding anniversary, he penned a sweet message to her.

They are also heavily involved in charitable activities across Cleveland, donating food and other necessities to needy families.
