J.J. Watt has already had a very busy NFL offseason. The Houston Texans five-time All-Pro defensive end has added a star player to his team — Kealia Ohai.

Watt, 30, and Ohai, 28, got married in the Bahamas this weekend, less than a year after announcing their engagement.

“Best day of my life. Without question,” Watt wrote on Sunday in an Instagram post with photos from the wedding.

Ohai wrote on Saturday: “I love you forever @jjwatt.”

The now-married couple have been dating since 2016. In May, Watt surprised Ohai with a marriage proposal.

“Can’t explain how thankful and happy I am feeling. JJ surprised me by flying in my family and best friends to celebrate our engagement,” Ohai wrote in an Instagram video from last May. “I was so excited and shocked all I could do was cry. Thank you so much @jjwatt I am the luckiest girl in the world and will never ever forget this special day. I love you all so much.”

“Still can’t believe I get to be with you forever,” she wrote about the engagement. “I love you @jjwatt.”

Ohai is currently a forward on the Chicago Red Stars in the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL), after playing for the Houston Dash for five seasons before. She also played on the United States women’s national team in October 2016.

The Ohai family has a thing for Houston Texans. Kealia’s sister Megan Ohai, who was also a soccer player at USC, is married to former NFL Houston Texans player Brian Cushing.


Hopefully, Watt is a better husband than golfer.
