Cooper Manning is known as a businessman and television personality but apart from that, he is a father to his three children including Arch Manning.
Copper Manning’s Children
Copper has three children with his wife Ellen Heidingsfelder. His children are all involved in sports.
His first child May Manning played volleyball at the Academy of the Sacred Heart. She now studies at the University of Virginia where her mother previously attended. In 2020, May won the Louisiana state volleyball championship with Sacred Heart.
Copper’s second child Arch Manning is a high school football quarterback at the Isidore Newman School in New Orleans. He committed to play college football for the Texas Longhorns.
Due to his family being in the public eye for a long time, Arch’s family has withheld him from media interviews and also declined premature college scholarship offers.
Arch also has a private Instagram account where only his family, immediate friends, and coaches are allowed to follow him.
Copper’s third child Heid Manning is also a football player. He plays center alongside his brother Arch at Newman. He is currently 16 years old, born in 2006.

What does Copper Manning Do?
Manning is the host of The Manning Hour for Fox Sports and the principal and senior managing director of investor relations for AJ Capital Partners.
AJ Capital Partners is a private real estate company based in Chicago, Illinois, focused on building a portfolio of hotels and resorts, most notably, the company’s in-house brand, Graduate Hotels, a collection of boutique design-driven hotels in university-anchored markets across the US.
Other projects have included restorations of existing hotels and the development of new properties, several located in Chicago, such as the Chicago Athletic Association, Soho House Chicago, Thompson Chicago, and Hotel Lincoln.
He previously had a short football career in high school and college. His career sadly ended when he was diagnosed with spinal stenosis, a narrowing of the spine, and pinching of the nerves at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
Even though Copper’s football career ended, his younger brother Peyton wore his jersey number 18 when he joined the NFL in 1998.
Moving on from football, Cooper ventured into a business where he was a partner of an energy investment company called Scotia Howard Weil.
Copper then hosted his own show segment “Manning on the Street.” on The Dan Patrick Show during the weeks leading up to the Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans.
