It hasn’t been the best year for Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, as he was only able to play in three games before needing season-ending surgery on his back. But thankfully for Watt, he has soccer player Kealia Ohai to nurse him back to health. It’s been rumored that they’ve been together for awhile, and now it’s confirmed that the pair is officially an item. I guess Watt knew what he was doing all along when he didn’t try to slide into Lindsey Pelas‘ DMs. What a wily son of a bitch!
Ohai is actually Brian Cushing’s sister-in-law, so I’m guessing that’s how this couple got together. The Draper, Utah native is a 25-year-old forward, and she played her college ball at the University of North Carolina. Ohai had a prolific career as a Tar Heel, starting all four years and being a key contributor on their 2012 National Championship team. After college, she was drafted as the second overall pick by the Houston Dash in the 2014 NWSL College Draft.
On the international circuit, Ohai came through with a ridiculously clutch goal for the United States during the 2012 FIFA U-20 World Cup. She scored the game-winning goal in the final match to beat Germany 1-0, which was the only goal Germany allowed all tournament. Ohai also previously played for the U.S.’ U-23 team, and she is currently on the roster for the national women’s team.
Now that we have a little background info on Kealia, let’s take a look at some of the hottest photos of J.J. Watt’s badass girlfriend.
