While the athletes had kept their romance under wraps, Ohai later confirmed the status of their relationship on the 2 Up Front podcast. Revealing about her relationship, she said.

“The rumors are true. We are dating. 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 kept quiet about his personal life in the beginning and Kealia had yet to make an appearance on his social media feeds. But recently he posted a picture of Kealia with his mother and grandmother on his Instagram and fans are hoping that this is the next step in their relationship.

The NFL prodigy had shared on “In Depth with Graham Bensinger” in September that his love would have to have a tough exterior to handle the critics.

“I think it’s having the whole world watch your every move, and any female you’re seen with is automatically your girlfriend,”

Watt further added,

“Bringing a girl into this life and the scrutiny and the criticism that comes with it no matter how perfect the girl is. people are gonna rip her to shreds because that’s the social media world we live in today.”

And it seems like his search is over and he finally found the one who can handle the chaos of his fame.

Among the rumors, few were true and few came into being after he was approached by women. In 2015, Tiffani Thiessen, who played Kelly Kapowski in "SAVED BY THE BELL," posted on Instagram holding a magazine that featured him.

This was maybe the most subtle one as there was also a not so subtle one by the playboy model Lindsey Pleas who asked Watt to "slide in her DMs" that stirred up questions. Other than the approaching women he was spotted with many women. He was seen "hanging out" with Zooey Deschanel.

He was in a relationship with tennis star Caroline Wozniacki for some time but that didn't work out on the pair's favor and they parted ways. He was also dating USA soccer star Sydney Leroux and she even visited him in the Pro Bowl in Hawaii.

Watt and Kate Hudson’s recorded a Snapchat of their dinner together back in April which also sparked rumors of a possible romance. There are many rumors regarding him but he moved past all that and found the love of his life.

We are anxiously waiting for the good news about their union and we hope to hear it sooner rather than later.
