NFL star Jason Kelce is the center for the Philadelphia Eagles — and there is no denying that his wife is his No. 1 fan.

Jason got his start with the Eagles back in 2011 and has started in every game since aside from four games he missed back in 2014 due to a sports hernia.

Besides being a consistent player, his ability to effectively pass block is a key influence on the success of Jalen Hurts.

Jason Kelce and his now-wife Kylie McDevitt met on Tinder.

During Jason and Travis's latest episode (aired Sept. 6, 2023) of their New Heights podcast, the NFL star revealed that he and his wife actually met on Tinder. Kylie tells listeners that she swiped right on his profile and met the center at a bar ... where he fell asleep 45 minutes into their date.

Apparently, Jason had a bit too much to drink and eventually had to be carried out by former teammate Beau Allen. Kylie decided to give Jason a second chance and confirmed that date no. 2 went a lot better.

Since meeting on Tinder, Jason tells podcast listeners that he thought Kylie was the "most beautiful woman" and felt like it was "love at first sight."
