Congratulations are in order for J.J. Watt!

The 33-year-old former defensive lineman for the Houston Texans announced on social media Thursday that he and his wife, 30-year-old professional soccer player Kealia Ohai Watt, are expecting the first child.

"Could not be more excited," Watt wrote alongside photos of himself and Kealia showing off her baby bump.

On her Twitter account, Kealia, a former Houston Dash star, hinted at an October due date. No word yet on whether it's a boy or a girl.

The sporty couple met and began dating in Houston in 2016. They got engaged in 2019 and were married in the Bahamas on February 15, 2020.

J.J., who left the Texans in 2021 to play for the Arizona Cardinals, is the president and founder of the Justin J. Watt Foundation. He famously raised more than $37 million to help Houston recover from Hurricane Harvey.

Congratulations, y'all!
