Houston Texan’s defensive end J.J. Watt married professional soccer player Kealia Ohai in the Bahamas on Saturday.

The wedding took place at The Four Seasons’ The Ocean Club. Ohai’s trailing dress was designed by Berta.

Watt and Ohai were reportedly introduced by former Texans linebacker Brian Cushing, who’s married to Ohai’s sister, Megan. They went public with their relationship in 2017, after Ohai confirmed their relationship on the 2 Up Front soccer podcast. The couple got engaged in May 2019.

On Sunday, the bride and groom posted several wedding pictures to Instagram and Twitter.


Watt posted this video of his grandma dancing at the wedding reception, which the internet quickly fell in love with:

The couple has recently been in the news for other reasons:

Watt hosted Saturday Night Live on February 1.


And Ohai, who plays in the National Women’s soccer league, was traded from Houston Dash to the Chicago Red Stars in January.

ABC13 Houston tweeted the news of Ohai’s trade with the headline “Houston Dash trade J.J. Watt’s fiancee to Chicago,” which led to this heated tweet from Watts, and a subsequent jab at the wedding. 

Watt’s collar reads “Mr. Kealia Watt.”
