J.J. Watt Wedding

Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt is one of the more incredible players in the NFL. Watt is not only a three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year and five-time Pro-Bowler, he was named the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year after helping fundraise more than $40 million to rebuild Houston in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

The 30-year-old Watt clearly has some elite genetics as well. Not only does he stand 6-foot-5 and carry 288 pounds of muscle, both of his brothers — Los Angeles Chargers’ Derek Watt and Pittsburgh Steelers’ T.J. Watt — play in the NFL. Oh, and he’s got some real charisma judging from his time hosting Saturday Night Live during Super Bowl weekend.

Well, ladies, I’m sorry to tell you the most eligible bachelor in the NFL is officially off the market and a married man.

Watt and professional soccer player Kealia Ohai tied the knot the day after Valentine’s Day in the Bahamas on Saturday. The two said “I do” at The Ocean Club, a Four Seasons Resort.

As you might’ve guessed, the ceremony look almost as beautiful as they do.

Watt shared the pictures in a tweet with the caption, “Best day of my life. Without question.”


Watt proposed to Ohai in May 2019 after the pair began dating in 2016. They met through former Texans linebacker and Watt’s teammate Brian Cushing, who is married to Ohai’s sister.

Ohai, who currently plays for the Chicago Red Stars of the National Women’s Soccer League, also shared some of the stunning photos from the wedding to her social media accounts.

It turns out the Houston Texans star can bust a move, too.

Who is J.J. Watt’s Wife?

The NFL has its fair share of power couples, and J.J. Watt and Kealia Ohai definitely slot in right next to Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen and Zach and Julie Ertz.

But just who is Kealia Ohai?

Ohai is a pro soccer player for the Chicago Red Stars in the NWSL. She was a star college player for the North Carolina Tarheels, with whom she won a national championship with in 2012. The NWSL’s Houston Dash then selected her with the second overall pick in the 2014 NWSL College Draft.

Ohai has also played internationally. She was a member of the 2012 US Under 20 Women’s National Team and won the 2012 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.

Soccer star Kealia Ohai shared her special day with other soccer stars as well. North Carolina Courage and USWNT player Crystal Dunn and Houston Dash player Amber Brooks were both in attendance.

Ohai’s brother-in-law is former NFL linebacker Brian Cushing, who played with Watt at one point on the Texans. Ohai met her NFL star husband through Cushing, who married her sister.
