"I don't know where or how this tradition started, but every time we get dressed up for an event or go somewhere together, we take a photo in the elevator," JJ writes in his tribute to Ohai. The star player adds, "Through 2 years of marriage, many memories have already been created, with so many more on the horizon. Happy Anniversary @kealiamae I love you."
The 30-year-old soccer player remembered to mark the day with a short, sweet note and a picture. "2*15*20 The best day and the best two years married to you.

Watt is well known for his extensive contribution to philanthropy. In 2018, the defensive lineman and his foundation raised a record-breaking $41.6 million to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey. "The actions of professional first responders and everyday citizens alike were an inspiration to the world and a shining example of the inherent good that lies within us all," Watt then said in his press release.
