Dallas Cowboys’ defensive end Marcus Spears now has perspective in his life, and it comes in the form of his wife, former WNBA player Aiysha Smith, their 18-month-old daughter Macaria and their second child, due in April. The 25-year-old admits that "I don’t do the same things I used to anymore" and that "my family has become more important to me –- my wife and my daughter." Other people, including Marcus’ sister Deirdre Spears, can also tell that he has grown up.

"When you start having children, you start appreciating family –- what the true definition of a family is. Having a baby girl and his wife, all that stuff makes a difference."
