Long before JJ Watt and Kealia Ohai tied the knot in 2020, the two were simply chummy on Twitter.

On Tuesday, the Arizona Cardinals defensive end reposted a 2014 exchange with Ohai, which took place after the Houston Dash selected the soccer star second overall in the NWSL College Draft in January of that year.

“Welcome to Houston @KealiaOhai! Great start for the new Dash franchise #TeamHouston,” Watt tweeted, calling out his then-NFL city.

Ohai later responded to Watt, stating she was “excited to play in one of the best cities in the world.”

Watt, 32, went on to thank a Twitter follower Tuesday for bringing the brief conversation with Ohai, 29, to his attention.

“Thanks for pointing this out @lllaciminos,” Watt tweeted. “Turned out to be a great start in many ways, eh @KealiaOhai?”

Watt, who played for the Houston Texans from 2011 to 2021, was first linked to Ohai in 2016. Three years later, the couple got engaged during a sunset dinner.

Watt later flew Ohai’s loved ones to Houston to celebrate the engagement.

“Thank you so much @jjwatt I am the luckiest girl in the world and will never ever forget this special day. I love you all so much,” Ohai gushed in May 2019.

Watt and Ohai wed in the Bahamas less than a year later.

Although the couple marked their first wedding anniversary in February, much has changed professionally for the pair. In March, Watt joined the Cardinals on a two-year, $31 million deal.

Ohai, who currently plays for the Chicago Red Stars, also celebrated Watt’s new chapter on social media.
