Soccer Analyst Kyle Martino Fired Nanny After Racy Text, His Wife Says

Kyle Martino is in the market for a new nanny. Again.

The NBC Sports Network soccer analyst and retired player recently was put into a pretty awkward situation, according to a post written by his wife, Eva Amurri Martino, in her blog “Happily Eva After.” In the story, Amurri Martino describes the shocking events that took place last week while she was returning from a business trip.

After recently writing about how the couple was forced to let their nanny of a year-and-a-half go, she admitted they were just starting to get comfortable with a new nanny who had been on the job for about three weeks. Then … well, we’ll let her take it from here.

An hour before she was supposed to arrive for the day, Kyle got a text message from her show up on his cell phone. It said:

“OMG. Girl, did I mention to you how hot and sex my Boss is. I would love to (expletive) his brains out ha haah. Too bad he seems not to like thick Latin women with lots to hold on to LOL.”

She goes on to explain that Kyle Martino assumed this was a terrible, embarrassing mistake and that he’d shortly get another text with “a million apologies … or something!” but that no other explanation ever came. Martino then took his daughter to get breakfast, but as they arrived back at the house an hour later, he noticed the nanny, who had a key, looking out their bedroom window — somewhere she was never supposed to be. That was the trigger that made him realize things weren’t right, Amurri Martino wrote.

Kyle Martino dropped off his daughter and left for work, but he was so uncomfortable that he quickly left a meeting to return home, confront the nanny and fire her.

Talk about awkward.
