Meet Jamie Collins, ex-’Black Ink Crew: Chicago’ star Katrina “Kat Tat” Jackson’s husband.
Kat married her husband, NFL player Jamie Collins, in April 2023.
The reality TV star shared the news with her followers by way of an Instagram post.
“I’ve been so blessed,” she captioned a series of sentimental videos. “Married the love of my life. Got to witness my newlywed husband and my daddy slap box, my daddy and my stepdad drumming together, our families came together in the most beautiful way to celebrate our union."
In an interview with her ex-Black Ink Crew: Chicago castmate, Charmaine Bey, Kat opened up about how she and her love first met.
According to Kat, they were “friends for years” before their relationship turned romantic. In fact, he even appeared in the very first season of Black Ink Crew. “I met him back in 2013 through tattooing,” she explained. “When we got the show, producers were like ‘We want you to tattoo a celebrity …’”
That celebrity, Kat said, turned out to be her one-day husband. “Jamie’s always been super, super respectable, he was just always very strong-minded and determined,” she gushed.
Not long after things got serious between the two, they learned that they were expecting their first child — Jackson Fredrick Collins, who was born in July 2021.
The following year, the duo welcomed their youngest son, Jakobi Lee Collins.
