J.J. Watt’s great-grandmother turned 98 and the Houston Texans superstar on Tuesday posted a touching photo to social media of the two hand-in-hand on a walk to celebrate the occasion.

As noted by Houston’s ABC-13, Watt has previously shared photos of the two together on social media as well, as was the case in 2012 when he was joined by both his great-grandmother and grandmother on the sidelines before a game at NRG Stadium in 2012.

And this the guy who claims he’s been “unsuccessful” in his love life. What woman wouldn’t be interested in dating a guy who so adores his grandmothers? Watt has made it clear on several occasions that family is a high priority for him, too, as he’s intensely loyal to his mother.
While Watt may be one of the fiercest, dominant and feared players on the defensive side of the ball in the NFL, there’s little doubt that he has a soft spot for his great-grandmother. And should anyone ever wrong the sweet old lady? They better watch out, because Watt will be coming for them.
