The wildly famous Houston and sports couple, Kealia Ohai and J.J. Watt, have officially tied the knot. The pair said their vows in a beautiful surprise wedding in the Bahamas Saturday, February 15.

 

Former teammate of Ohai, Amber Brooks, posted a series of pictures and videos to Instagram, apparently showing their reception.

Fans had been speculating the couple was planning something big after a series of Instagram posts from the destination wedding's location.

Watt posted a photo of Ohai on Instagram with a series of heart-eyed emojis showing the soccer star working out in an outdoor gym Tuesday, sparking the initial fan theories. One fan commented, "Is that a pre-wedding workout?"

On Friday, Watt wrote, "My Valentine now and forever."

Ohai similarly posted a photo of her now-husband captioned, "I love you forever."

The couple have been engaged since last May, but no wedding date was ever made public.

He spoke with CultureMap news partner, ABC13, about the key to planning the perfect Texas-sized wedding. "It's open bar for everybody," Watt said during last summer's Veteran Minicamp. "It's the only way to make a good wedding."

A few days after their engagement, Ohai described what she called the "perfect proposal" from Watt. "He was acting weird, so I knew something was going on. It was like 30 minutes before and he kept asking me what I was going to wear. I was like, 'You've never asked me that,'" Ohai said.

On social media, Harris County judge Linda Hildago shared how she helped the couple receive their marriage license for their special day.
