This week, the Houston Chronicle published an article entitled “Kealia Ohai: 13 things to know about J.J. Watt’s new girlfriend.” This raised a lot of questions here in Howler Towers. In fact, the only question it didn’t raise was “who is Kealia Ohai?” We know the answer to that question: She’s a forward for the U.S. women’s national team and Houston Dash who scored the fastest debut goal in national team history and won the under-twenty World Cup.
But that still left plenty of questions unanswered. Namely, who on earth is this dude dating one of American soccer’s most promising prospects?

3. He has a cabin in Wisconsin
4. He has his own endorsement deals
Though it’s unclear how Watt’s commercial ventures compare to Ohai’s deal with Puma, he has is own shoe line with Reebok.

6. He is kind of a ham on Instagram
