He attended the University of Oklahoma and won the pommel horse title in 2010 and 2011. Naddour met fellow gymnast Hollie Vise, a two-time gold medalist at the 2003 World Championships, while a student at OU. Appropriately, they incorporated gymnastics equipment into their engagement photos. Naddour and Vise were married in May 2015. They had their first child, Lilah, in February 2016. Naddour says his wife and daughter gave him the motivation to make his first Olympic team in 2016. From young gymnast to father to Olympian.
