Fans Dub the Kelces 'America's Royal Family' As Kylie Congratulates Jason on 13-Year NFL Career

Jason and Kylie Kelce

Kylie Kelce is publicly congratulating her husband Jason Kelce on his retirement.

The mom of three took to Instagram to share a throwback photo of the two together, alongside a sweet caption highlighting his football accomplishments.

In the snap, the former Philadelphia Eagles center threw his hands up in the air after a game while his wife stood by his side, flashing her pearly whites for the camera.

"Pulling this one out of the archives to congratulate this guy on his retirement," she opened the caption of the March 7 upload. "Your accolade studded 13 year 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! 💚"

Earlier in the week, on Monday, March 4, the pro athlete officially announced he would be hanging up his cleats, after it had been rumored months prior that he told his teammates in the locker room he'd played his last NFL game.

Three more echoed that sentiment, dropping "literally americas royal family," "Our Royal family 👑," and "king jason and queen ky."

"Incredible career. Incredible human. Beautiful family. ❤," yet another concurred.

And, of course, the 36-year-old's brother, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce chimed in with a loving comment of his own, after wiping away tears at the press conference and then becoming overwhelmed with emotion on the brothers' New Heights podcast. "The greatest to ever do it!! Love you guys!! 🦅💚," he wrote.
