J.J. Watt has been in silent social media mode since re-aggravating a back injury that will cause him to miss the rest of the season.
On a personal front, there have been rumors since June that he is dating Kealia Ohai, a forward on the NWSL’s Houston Dash who is also on the fringe of the USWNT, but neither side has ever said anything publicly about that.
That is until three weeks ago, when Ohai was a guest on the 2 Up Front podcast. “The rumors are true. We are dating,” said Ohai, at the 19:40-mark (via the New York Post). “I’ve known J.J. for a really long time, and we’ve always been really great friends, and yeah, I’m really proud of him for everything he’s been going through, but it’s been pretty crazy with all the rumors.”
We will keep you updated in the event a couple’s photo emerges on one of their respective Instagram accounts.
