This year, J.J. Watt has a lot to be thankful for.
The defensive end for the Arizona Cardinals, who is 33 years old and just had his first child with his wife, professional soccer player Kealia Watt, posted a sweet Thanksgiving message on Instagram.
J.J. wrote in the caption, “More to be thankful for than ever.” “From our family to yours, happy Thanksgiving!”
He posted a picture of himself with his arm around Kealia, 30, and the two of them looking lovingly down at their newborn son Koa James, who was held by J.J.
In an Instagram post last month, the couple wrote: “Our son was born last month.” “We had no idea that love and happiness could get so high. Koa James Watt 10.23.22”
Since then, they have shared some cute photos of their son on social media, including one from his “first game day” at a Sunday night football game between the Arizona Cardinals and the Minnesota Vikings.
J.J. put a picture of Baby Koa in his mother’s arms wearing a red Arizona Cardinals onesie with his name and jersey number on it as they cheered for him from home.
“The first game day for Koa. Let’s go daddy!!! @jjwatt, “Kealia wrote something.
In June, the couple told everyone that they were going to have their first child. They posted a picture of Kealia in a brown bodycon dress showing off her baby bump on Instagram.
Watt wrote in the captions, “Could not be more excited.”
In 2020, on Valentine’s Day weekend, J.J. and Kealia got married in the Bahamas. This year, Watt wrote a touching tribute to his wife for their second wedding anniversary.
“After two years of marriage, a lot of memories have already been made, and there are so many more to come.
(It also makes me look [exponentially] better because you always send the fire emoji.) Happy Anniversary @kealiamae I love you, “Watt said on Instagram.
