While the 2023 NFL Draft will be centered on the college football prospects and their new professional homes, fans and pre-draft shows find content in various other ways — including focusing on the parents and especially some of the love interests of the prospects.
Will Levis figures to be one of those guys. The former University of Kentucky Wildcats quarterback is among the best signal-callers in the draft, alongside Alabama's Bryce Young, Ohio State's C.J. Stroud and Florida's Anthony Richardson. Not only is he becoming a more high-profile name with each passing day before the draft, Levis' girlfriend, Gia Duddy, has her own claim to fame — her social media presence.
Will Levis' TikTok Star Girlfriend Gia Duddy
Duddy, whose handle on TikTok is "omgiaaa," has amassed over 323,000 followers and 10 million likes on her content. She has over 57,000 followers on her Instagram account and hosts an original Snapchat series, "College Culture."
Her TikTok video content seems to center on makeup tutorials, primarily with her "get ready with me" series. But there are also general lifestyle videos, with some featuring the Kentucky signal-caller. Judging by her Instagram account, she also enjoys traveling, with pictures of her in Italy, St. Maarten, Hungary and other countries.
Some of the videos on TikTok include complaining about Spirit Airlines, sketches, and hyping the potential top 5 pick.
Duddy is a 21-year-old who attends Penn State University, where she studies behavioral health. There, she's also a member of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority; and she is reportedly the relations chair for a student-run organization, THON, that's aimed at helping the lives of children and families dealing with childhood cancer.
She's originally from Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, and her parents are Susan Duddy and Michael Duddy II. She also has two brothers, Michael and Bella.
Before attending Penn State, Duddy played sports, including lacrosse at Berks Catholic High School.
Duddy and Levis' Relationship
While we know Levis for his playing time at Kentucky, his college career began with the Penn State Nittany Lions, where the 23-year-old Levis first met Duddy.
Levis earned a bachelor's degree in finance from Penn State before transferring to Kentucky in 2021. Levis and Duddy made their relationship known in April 2021.
Despite the transfer, Duddy still visited Levis to watch him play. You can find various photos throughout her social media of her visiting him — including one of her on the sidelines with him at the 2022 Citrus Bowl, and more.
There are also posts of them enjoying activities together, such as taking in Los Angeles Lakers and Cincinnati Reds games, and traveling to various places including Florida, California and more.
Once Levis is drafted, Duddy said on TikTok, she plans to look for nursing schools to attend.
Depending on which mock draft you read, Levis' stock appears to be trending upward as we get closer to the NFL Draft. In college, Levis threw for nearly 6,000 yards and 46 touchdowns. He started two seasons for Kentucky and started two for Penn State. One team Levis is often linked to is the Tennessee Titans, who hold the No. 11 overall pick but have also been rumored as potentially a candidate to trade up for a quarterback.
No matter where Levis is drafted, he'll have his longtime girlfriend by his side.
