The evidence was there three weeks ago. It was right in front of our faces but we chose to wait for more confirmation. We can now say with confidence that it looks like J.J. Watt has a new squeeze, none other than U.S. soccer star Sydney Leroux. The above photo was posted to Sydney’s Instagram page over the weekend and shows her at the Pro Bowl wearing an official AFC hat. If her mere attendance at the game wasn’t enough to sway you, the fact that she is wearing an AFC hat all but confirms our suspicions. The tatted up soccer sex-pot is dating J.J. The initial thing that caught our eye was a photo tweeted out by Watt’s brother prior to the Bengals-Texans playoff game on January 5. Yep, that’s Leroux. Why didn’t we tell you the news then? Well, plain and simple we didn’t have enough confidence that the two were an item. However, put an AFC hat on her in Hawaii and its all but locked up. Two comments on her Pro Bowl photo further our case that the two are an item. User ‘sylviavictoriaaa’ commented: Cheering on her guy :) #jjwatt Interesting. Then ‘courtlove98′ commented: Lol Tell JJ Watt good game STILL not convinced? One finale piece of evidence is this tweet from Watt’s teammate Connor Barwin, in which he tweeted Leroux directly and used a hashtag (#DBWH) which represents J.J. Watt’s charity. Looks like J.J. has someone to cuddle up with Sunday night to keep him chipper as he watches the Ravens represent the AFC in the Super Bowl instead of his Texans.
