When injured Texans star J.J. Watt threw out the first pitch in game 3 of the 2017 World Series at Minute Maid Park, he had some extra support next to him.

Kealia Ohai, casually clad in jeans and sneakers, was by his side as he hobbled on crutches out to the pitcher's mound. But Ohai is not just Watt's girlfriend, she's also a professional athlete and a captain of the Houston Dash women's professional soccer team.

The World Series game was a high-profile outing for the couple; though most days, their lives are far more low-key and career focused.
