Did J.J. Watt confirm relationship with Kealia Ohai with Xmas photo?


J.J. Watt has remained tight-lipped about his relationship with presumed soccer star-girlfriend Kealia Ohai. But the Houston Texans superstar may have let the cat out of the bag by inadvertently confirming the two are an item by way of a holiday-centric photo.

Watt recently posted evidence of his holiday handiwork while getting his home ready for Christmas. While the decorating done by Watt is impressive enough, keen-eyed observers — the first being Terez Owens— noticed something conspicuous about the stockings hung by the chimney with care: One of them features the initial “K,” and the suspicion is it stands for Kealia.

To wit, courtesy of Terez Owens:


It warrants mentioning that the “K” stocking alone by no means explicitly confirms Watt and Ohai, the sister-in-law of Texans teammate Brian Cushing, are together. But taking it in along with what Ohai had to say recently pretty much ties things up in a pretty little Christmas bow.

“The rumors are true. We are dating,” Ohai said on an 2 Up Front podcast. “I’ve known J.J. for a really long time, and we’ve always been really great friends, and yeah, I’m really proud of him for everything he’s been going through, but it’s been pretty crazy with all the rumors.”

Watt, who has been romantically linked to tennis star Caroline Wozniacki and actress Kate Hudson in the past, has been reluctant to publicly discuss his love life over the years — mainly due to his aversion to the “cynical world” of social media — so it’s hardly surprising he’s reticent to discuss Ohai much, either.

But Watt’s pride in documenting his stellar holiday-decorating skills may have confirmed things from his end anyway.
