Jason and Kylie Kelce

Kylie Kelce just honored her husband Jason Kelce’s 13-year NFL career.

The Philadelphia Eagles center retired from the NFL on Monday, and Kylie, 31, publicly celebrated her husband’s accomplishments in a Thursday Instagram post.

The mother of three shared a photo alongside Jason, 36, as he beamed from ear to ear after the Eagles won Super Bowl LII in 2018.

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

She continued to praise her husband and added how “immensely proud” she is to be his wife. “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! 💚.”

Ahead of her celebratory Instagram post, Kylie told NBC’s Philadelphia News 10 that Jason’s announcement was the “perfect summary” of his NFL tenure.

“I think I was the only one that had heard the speech before he went into it,” she revealed. “I think it was just a perfect summary of 13 years. It was an incredible run he had as a player in the NFL.”

During his touching farewell, he thanked the NFL for giving him that chance to meet Kylie — because the couple first met at an Eagles Christmas party — and then he directly thanked Kylie for their family.

“She has also given me three beautiful girls and a life that increasingly brings me more fulfillment off the field than it does on,” he tearfully said.

The pair have been married since 2018 and share daughters Wyatt, 4, Elliotte, 23 months, and Bennett, 12 months.
