28. J.J. Watt and Kealia Ohai
The defensive end for the Huston Texans, J.J. Watt, and the professional soccer player, Kealia Ohai, met through Watt’s teammate, who’s married to Ohai’s older sister. This was a match made in heaven, and the two have been dating for three years before he popped the question in 2019. When the two first started dating, Watt was playing for the Houston Texans and Ohai was playing for the Houston Dash, and so distance was one less obstacle the two athletes had to face.
However, Ohai recently transferred to the Chicago Red Stars who play in the National Women’s Soccer League – an offer she couldn’t refuse. The only challenge of dating another accomplished athlete, according to Watt, is that they’re both dangerously competitive. The football player shared in an interview that during a birthday trip to Mexico, “the whole weekend was a competition,” spending the time playing ping pong, lifting weights and whatnot.
