PHOENIX — It looks like congratulations are in order for the Watt family. Arizona Cardinals defensive end JJ Watt and his wife, Kealia Ohai Watt, announced they are expecting their first child.
Kealia shared the news on Twitter Thursday along with photos showcasing her new baby bump.
"Oct 2022," the tweet read along with the pictures.
It appears the pair's family will grow by one new bundle of joy this October. No word yet on if the couple is having a boy or a girl.
"Could not be more excited," JJ tweeted as he shared more photos.
It's already been a busy off-season for JJ, having traveled overseas and moderated great internet debates like "donutgate." So throwing in a newborn will certainly take up most of his free time starting this fall.
We can't wait to welcome the new Watt to the Valley!
