Kylie Kelce is “immensely proud” of husband Jason Kelce, who announced his NFL retirement on Monday after an “accolade-studded 13-year career” with the Eagles.

Taking to Instagram on Thursday, the mother of three posted a heartfelt tribute to the longtime center, sharing a sweet photo of the couple celebrating Philadelphia’s Super Bowl LII win over New England in February 2018.

“Pulling this one out of the archives to congratulate this guy on his retirement,” Kylie began. “Your accolade studded 13 year [sic] career is a direct result of your hard work, determination, and resilience.

“I am immensely proud to be your wife and can’t wait to see what you do next. As always, the girls and I will be there cheering you on every step of the way!”

A sixth-round pick out of Cincinnati in 2011, Kelce spent his entire career in Philadelphia, where he was named to seven Pro Bowls and earned six First Team All-Pro nods.

The future Hall of Famer reached the Super Bowl last year before losing to his younger brother, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, in a 38-35 thriller between Philadelphia and Kansas City.

Kelce, 36, had been at the center of retirement buzz following the Eagles’ embarrassing playoff ouster to the Buccaneers in January.

He stated on a January episode of his “New Heights” podcast: “When it’s time to officially announce what’s happening in the future, it’ll be done in a way that’s definitive and pays respect to a lot of people and individuals that have meant a lot to me and what has led to the career I’ve had.”

That time came on Monday in an emotional press conference, where he was joined by Kylie, parents Ed and Donna Kelce, and Travis, 34.
