Who is Jason Kelce's Wife, Kylie Kelce?

Jason Kelce's wife is Kylie (McDevitt) Kelce—and she's a Philly native. Kylie McDevitt was born in 1992 and grew up in Narberth, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia. She majored in communications at Cabrini College in Wayne, Pennsylvania, and graduated in 2017. Just like her husband, Kylie Kelce is a talented athlete. She played field hockey in high school and went on to compete at the collegiate level too. In a 2019 Instagram post, she reflected on her time as a player, saying, "One of the best decisions I've ever made was to become a part of the Cabrini Field Hockey family. The experience gave me memories and friendships that will last a lifetime."

Jason and Kylie Kelce also take pride in giving back to their community through joint philanthropic efforts. In addition to Jason's non-profit (Be)Philly, which aims to support youth in Philadelphia, Kylie often helps raise money for the Eagles Autism Foundation. She hosts an annual charity event for the foundation in Sea Isle City, New Jersey. In its second year, the event raised $150,000.

2015: Jason Kelce and Kylie McDevitt Meet on Tinder

We can trace Jason Kelce and his wife Kylie's love story back to 2015 when they matched on Tinder. In the Amazon Prime documentary Kelce, Kylie revealed that after matching with Jason, she and her friends conducted a routine Google search of him ahead of their first date—but when they were met with results of the football player, they assumed he was a catfish. As fate would have it, Kylie really did match with *the* Jason Kelce...and the rest is (almost) history.

On their first date, Jason recalled thinking that Kylie was "the most beautiful woman in the world" and that it felt like "love at first sight." Although he ended up falling asleep before it was over, they had a successful redo shortly after. The two made their romance Instagram official in November 2015 when Kylie shared a black-and-white photo of them together, along with a cheeky caption: "Thank goodness you swiped right too. ☺️"

Inside Kylie and Jason Kelce's Wedding Day

Kylie and Jason Kelce's wedding took place on April 14, 2018, at The Logan Philadelphia Hotel. According to Philly Magazine, the couple celebrated their big day with 170 guests, as well as their 120-pound Irish wolfhound pup Winnie. The groom wore a light gray suit, while the bride looked elegant in a simple white sheath gown with a plunging V-neckline and buttons down the back.

When the couple booked their photographer, Sarah Alderman of AGP Collective, in November, the pro was unfamiliar with Jason Kelce. But after he and the Eagles won the Super Bowl the following February, she was excited to photograph his big day. "He went from a regular athlete whom I had never heard of to a Super Bowl champion who made such an impression on the city," Alderman told the publication. "I don't follow football, but I've been raising my twins as a single mom since they were born, and I grew up with a single mom, and I feel very familiar to underdog thing. When I saw Kelce's speech, I started crying hysterically. His whole mentality and his approach to life just really hit me hard. I thought, 'This is my groom.'"

Alderman continued to praise the Kelces, adding, "I couldn't pick a better couple. I work with couples all the time, and you can tell when people are a good match. These two are good for each other on every level."

On their first anniversary, Kylie shared a touching tribute to her husband. "One year ago today we stood in front of our closest friends and family and vowed our love and commitment to each other," she captioned a slideshow of photos from the day. "I am so beyond grateful that I get to share my life with this man. Happy one year J!"
