Kylie Kelce is “immensely proud” of her husband, Jason Kelce, following his retirement from the NFL after 13 season with the Philadelphia Eagles.

“Your accolade studded 13 year career is a direct result of your hard work, determination, and resilience,” the mom of three wrote alongside an old photo of her and the athlete posing after the Eagles won the 2018 Super Bowl.

“I am immensely proud to be your wife and can’t wait to see what you do next.”

Kylie, 31, ended her message by saying she and their three daughters — Wyatt, Elliotte and Bennett — “will be there cheering” for Jason, 36, throughout whatever comes next.

The recent retiree’s brother, Travis, responded in the comments, “The greatest to ever do it!! Love you guys!! 🦅💚.”

The Philadelphia Eagles center sobbed last week as he announced in a press conference that this past season would be his last. During his emotional speech, in which he wore a tank top paired with a $50,000 Rolex, the famed football player choked up as he recalled the night he met his future wife.

“It was like she glided through the opening, an aura around her. Then she started talking and I thought, ‘Man, is this what love feels like?’” he said of Kylie.

“She was beautiful and smart, serious yet playful. I knew it right away.”

The couple previously admitted that they first connected on Tinder before agreeing to meet in-person.

Jason also explained during his press conference, which also saw the Kansas City Chiefs tight end break down in tears, that his wife has played a key part in his career.

“I think it’s no coincidence that I have enjoyed my best years of my career with Kylie by my side,” he said. Every accolade I have ever received has come with her in my life.”
