Despite being linked for nearly a decade, Michael Strahan, former New York Giants defensive end, and Michael Strahan's girlfriend, Kayla Quick, have kept their relationship out of the public eye.

Since retiring from the NFL, Strahan has become a media personality Americans will recognize from ABC's Good Morning America. Fans will also remember him from his time as a football analyst on Fox NFL Sunday, as well as his role on Live! with Kelly and Michael with Kelly Ripa—for which he won two Daytime Emmy Awards.

Like many people with public-facing careers, Strahan prefers to keep his love life private, keeping details regarding Quick to a minimum. They've only appeared together publicly a few times, although more so in the last year.

Even though they keep things fairly tight-lipped, there are a few insights fans can learn about Michael Strahan's girlfriend and his relationship with her. Here's what we know.

Who is Michael Strahan's Girlfriend? All About Kayla Quick

Kayla Quick, who also goes by Kayla Lyn, studied at the University of Tampa and pursued a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in mass communication and media studies.

According to her LinkedIn, Quick studied in New York City at the International Culinary Center and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She also studied angel investing at Columbia Business School.

Quick is the co-founder of FIZZNESS, a wellness supplement company. In an interview with The Purist, Quick explained that she started the company with Jamie Giardino, who she met in culinary school.

"We had both exited previous careers and startups, and wanted to pursue our passions and create something to share," she said.

"Fizzness was inspired by the desire to create beauty-based wellness products that simplify your routine," Quick added. "We source our ingredients in nature, and formulate with science."

In the same interview, Quick also explained how important self-care is to her.

"I take care of myself first, so that I can take care of others—family, friends, business—the vast ecosystem that relies on a woman! I wake up, work out and check in with me. How am I? How do I feel? What do I need? What's on my to-do list? Then I feel powerful and centered to answer and execute."
