Jason Kelce's wife fires back at dad-shamers over viral video


Jason Kelce’s wife, Kylie, was not happy with negative comments about the couple’s kids on social media.


After the NFL and Philadelphia Eagles shared a joint video on Instagram of the veteran center playing with two of his daughters, Wyatt, 3, and Elliotte, 2, during training camp, Kylie fired back at those claiming in the comments that Kelce, 35, was “playing fetch” with his kids.

Kylie recently reposted the video, according to SheKnows.com, and wrote: “People in these comments saying ‘He’s playing fetch with his kids like they are dogs!’

“Just say you don’t have toddlers. If you listen, you can hear him counting. So technically, they are racing.”

Kylie also added a “silly goose” GIF.

Kelce always stays late after practice to play with his daughters, according to the video’s caption.

“Best. Dad. Ever,” was written over the clip, which showed the Super Bowl champion center laying on the field while he tossed footballs to his daughters to run after.

The couple, who has been married for five years, welcomed their third daughter, Bennett Llewellyn Kelce, on Feb. 23.

“Yesterday little lady #3 joined us,” the proud parents captioned a photo of their newborn daughter on Instagram.

Kylie shared a tribute to Kelce last Tuesday as the veteran enters his 13th NFL season.

“This off-season proved yet again how your drive and work ethic are absolutely remarkable,” Kylie wrote on Instagram, including a family photo at the beach. “We can’t wait to see the results of that this season. As always, your ladies will be cheering you on every step of the way!”

Kelce announced his decision to return for another season in March following speculation that he was contemplating retirement.

“I have put much thought into whether it makes sense to play another season,” Kelce wrote on Twitter. “After talking it over with my wife and many other friends and family, I have decided to return for another year. Thank you to all my supporters and detractors for fueling me, I ain’t f—— done yet!”

Kelce also shared a video on the “New Heights” Twitter account — the podcast he co-hosts with his brother, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce — of the moment he informed Eagles general manager Howie Roseman of the decision at the NFL combine in Indianapolis.

Kelce and Travis, 33, became the first siblings to face off in the Super Bowl, when the Chiefs defeated the Eagles, 38-35, in February.

Kelce, who turns 36 in November, earned his sixth Pro Bowl selection last season.

He has spent his entire career in Philadelphia after being drafted by the Eagles in 2011 and earned five first-team All-Pro nods.
