Who is Deshaun Watson’s girlfriend, Jilly Anais? The Houston Texans quarterback is currently in the news for his comments about the Texans needing a ‘culture shift’ and fans are curious who the NFL star is dating.
Watson in the spotlight
Houston Texan’s quarterback Deshaun Watson has made headlines recently after saying the team needs a ‘whole culture shift’.
Talking to the Houston Chronicle, the 25-year-old said: “We just need new energy. We just need discipline. We need structure. We need a leader so we can follow that leader as players.”
On 18 March, the NY Post published news of a lawsuit being filed against Watson, on allegations of improper behaviour.
He addressed it via Twitter earlier this week, explaining: “As a result of a social media post by a publicity-seeking plaintiff’s lawyer, I recently became aware of a lawsuit that has apparently been filed against me.”
Watson went on to deny the claims brought against him and defend his career and reputation.
Who is Deshaun Watson’s girlfriend, Jilly Anais?
Deshaun Watson’s girlfriend, Jilly Anais, was born in Houston on 2 January 1996 and is best known as a model and singer. She currently has around 2.7 million followers on Instagram and counting.
Jilly first rose to popularity with her debut single, The Juice, in 2015, after winning Miss Teen Houston four years earlier in 2011.
On Jilly’s YouTube channel, the model revealed that she met Deshaun in an LA restaurant. The two apparently locked eyes while Jilly was eating sushi and the rest is history.
Four days later, Jilly received a DM on Instagram from Deshaun, which led to a first date at hot yoga.
The couple have been going strong ever since, and celebrated their one year anniversary in the summer of 2020. In an Instagram post, Jilly wrote about their relationship: “this year has been nothing but pure bliss! I love doing life with you.”
Jilly can be seen in the front rows, supporting Deshaun when the Texans face off against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Houston’s NRG stadium. She captioned this post “4s up” in reference to Deshaun, who wears No.4.
