2. Dirk Nowitzki, Jessica Olsson
German professional basketball player Dirk Nowitzki is another tall one with a relatively short wife. The professional NBA player, who plays for the Dallas Mavericks, married his longtime girlfriend, Jessica Olsson, in 2012, and their height difference is quite noticeable. Women can’t really compete with men when it comes to their height, and knowing that Dirk is 2.13m tall, Jessica would have no chance in matching those numbers. Olsson is only 1.58m tall, which makes quite a big difference when the two stand next to one another.
