Brianna’s father, Brian Turang, is a former outfielder of the Seattle Mariners, having made his MLB debut in 1993. But it was a short-lived baseball career in MLB, which ended a year later in 1994 with having hit one home run against Jimmy Key of the New York Yankees.
He was a graduate of Loyola Marymount Univerisity and spent most of his collegiate baseball career with Harwich Mariners in Cape Code Baseball League. Her mother, Carrie Turang, like her, was a softball player at Long Beach State.

Bailee Turang played as an outside hitter for her softball team and was named to All-CCA Central Region Second Team and a star player for Southern Nazarene University. Like her older sister, Bailee and Carissa have pursued nursing degrees.
The only son of the Turang family, Brice Turang, 23, is a shortstop for Milwaukee Brewers and continued the family legacy of graduating from Santiago High School. He is one of the highly sought prospects in baseball, having signed for the Brewers for $3.4 million.
Brian has high hopes for his son and has already said he is way better than him at the same age.
Tress Way And Brianna Turang Relationship Timeline
Tress Way and Brianna Turang relationship began while they were college athletes finding their feet in their respective careers.
Brianna made her love for Tress public in 2012 as she posted a picture of the two attending the marriage ceremony of their friend Whitney Hand and Landry Jones. And after, she continued to post barrages of their images together, even complimenting her future husband’s smile in one of them.
The NFL player would leave his girlfriend sweet notes with Brianna sharing one of them on her Instagram handle. Tress wrote, “I’m crazy about you. Like big time. You’re awesome and absolutely beautiful.” Getting sweet notes like that certainly made Brianna fall head over heels for her partner.
Tress was also seen rocking The Sooners jersey and cheering for his girlfriend in her softball games. The couple would post tributes for each other on their respective Instagram handles on game days and on special occasions.
Within a year of dating, the two got engaged in June 2013. Brianna shared the news of her engagement with a collage of photos on her Instagram handle, which also shows Brian going down on one knee.
The couple had a photoshoot six months before their wedding, with Brianna holding a cutout of her hometown of California and Tress holding that of Oklahoma.
The couple tied the knot on July 6, 2014, which Tress shared on his Instagram handle. This also remains the last post the Washington Commanders player shared on his Instagram handle, as he has been inactive since on the photo-sharing website.
2014 also marked the year that Tress joined Washington Commanders and made his much-awaited NFL debut. The couple adopted two labrador puppies, Tego and Marley, who prepared them for what would come four years later.

On April 14, 2018, Brianna shared the photos of the twins, Beau and Harper, on her Instagram handle, assuring that the twins were healthy and ready to be brought home.
The two were only four months old when they first traveled to FedEx Field to cheer for their father’s team. They became frequent visitors as their father became an integral part of the Washington Commanders.
For Halloween 2019, the Way family dressed up as Stars Wars characters, and a month later, Brianna and Tress announced they would have another addition to their family.
On April 25, 2020, the twins welcomed their younger sister, Hadley Way, to the family, who soon started attending the Washington Commanders games. Little Beau has also started training with his father, and one day we might see him in NFL.
And in one of the photos shared by Brianna, her daughter, Harper, stood in a sign that said she wanted to be a doctor. Little Hadley has not shared what she wants to be as she is busy taking naps and enjoying her free time before she joins school next year.
