Who Is Bubba Wallace’s Wife? All About Amanda Carter

Bubba Wallace married his wife Amanda Carter on New Year’s Eve 2022.

The two have been dating since high school, before Wallace became a professional NASCAR driver. Although they were never dating at the time, they stayed in touch after they graduated and reconnected well a few years later.

“It’s special,” Carter told PEOPLE of the couple’s history in 2023. “Even last night when we were at dinner, we were talking about stories from high school or people from high school and the town. We still reminisce or talk about things from past. We just know so much about each other’s lives from so long ago.”

Wallace and Carter started dating in 2016, got engaged in 2021, and married the following year. Ahead of their wedding, Wallace told PEOPLE that he will probably cry when Carter walks down the aisle. “I can tell you no right now, because I’m relaxed,” he said. “But yeah, standing up there, I’m probably going to start and not be able to stop.”

So who is Bubba Wallace’s wife? From her work as an artist to her wedding, here’s everything you need to know about Amanda Carter.

Carter recalled, “We were in Spanish class in high school and we sat next to each other. I don’t remember the first time we met, but he would always try to cheat. We were friends. There were three or four of us who did all our projects together and he would always try to cheat on my exams because I was so much smarter than him!”

But they never went to school. “It never worked. It never hit or landed in high school,” Carter said. “I even went to his prom with someone else from his school.”

She reconnected with Wallace in 2015 and they started dating the following year

Wallace and Carter stayed in touch after high school and spoke occasionally before reuniting at a college football game in 2015. The duo began spending more time together, and Wallace soon invited Carter to a race in Las Vegas while she was a senior at college.

“It was my senior spring break. And I had no plans then. And he said, ‘Well, I’m going to be out in Vegas while you’re on spring break, do you want to come?’ And I said, ‘No,'” Carter told PEOPLE.

“And then he asked again several times, and I finally said yes,” she added. “I thought, well, I have to get to know him better if we’re going to be on vacation for a week together. And we started dating when we got to Vegas, because we talked so much. We really started to like each other.”

Wallace proposed to her in June 2021
