JJ Watt has a girlfriend. We know because she told us. Kealia Ohai revealed on the 2 Up Front podcast that she’s dating the Texans defensive end, who she’s known for several years. Ohai is the sister-in-law of Brian Cushing, who has been with the Texans for eight seasons. But Ohai hasn’t just been hanging around NRG Stadium, she’s a standout player for the Houston Dash of the NWSL. While Watt is out of commission with a back injury, it’s Ohai that is making highlights for the couple. During the Rio Olympics, Ohai, who had struggled gaining notoriety at the senior level, put together the best season of her professional career. She ended the 2016 season leading the NWSL with 11 goals, and caught the eye of USWNT manager Jill Ellis. Ohai has recently been called up to the senior squad with several other USWNT standouts, and she scored in her USWNT debut against Switzerland. Click the arrow to the right to see more of Ohai:
