Here's What Former DCC Kelcey Has Been Up To Since 'America's Sweethearts'

Netflix's newest docuseries America's Sweethearts: Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders dives deep into the lives of the most famous NFL cheerleading squad. One of those women is fifth-year veteran Kelcey Wetterberg, who retired after the 2023-24 season.

Despite her passion for leading the team, Kelcey shared at the beginning of America's Sweethearts that this was going to be her last season as a DCC. Throughout the docuseries, the group leader's skills and personal life were put into the spotlight, and she instantly became a fan favorite.

So, who is Kelcey, and what has she been up to since hanging up her pom-poms and white boots? Ahead, here's everything to know about what the retired cheerleader.

She's a Nebraska native and a pediatric nurse.

Kelcey is a pediatric nurse from the Cornhusker State, according to her Instagram bio. In the Netflix docuseries, viewers got a glimpse into her jam-packed schedule and how she balances her work as a nurse and as a DCC.

"You learn to expedite your meals when you're busy, like me, 18 hours a day," she said, per Netflix. "DCC is more of a part-time job—as a nurse, I work 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., then go to practice and get home at midnight, sometimes 1:00 a.m."

Kelcey said that working two jobs is "exhausting," but she "cherishes" those special moments with her team.

She's been dancing since she was three years old.

Kelcey started taking dance classes at Nebraska Dance Company at age 3, according to her DCC bio. The star began to dance competitively when she was 8 years old with Millard West Dance Team.

Her dancing career continued as she got older and she joined Arizona State's Dance Team from 2015-2017. In 2017, she became a gold medalist with the United States National Jazz Team. From 2017-2019, Kelcey was the choreography captain for the Nebraska Scarlets Dance Team before joining the DCC.

"DCC was always my dream dance team!" she says in her bio. "The thing that makes this organization special to me is how much it challenges you and allows you to grow as a woman. I knew that I would do anything to be one of those girls and be able to experience the environment that has built so many great women before me."

On June 25, Kelcey posted a clip from America's Sweethearts on Instagram, writing about how she wanted to soak up every moment of her last season of being a DCC.

"Leading this team has been one of the most rewarding, yet challenging, positions I’ve held," she wrote. "Thank goodness I got to do it with the best team @chandidayle @clairewolford @mckenziehughston!"

Where is Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader Kelcey now?

While she's no longer a DCC, Kelcey is still a pediatric nurse, per her IG bio. She's also in the midst of getting ready for her wedding. In the docuseries, viewers watched as she got engaged to her longtime boyfriend, Nate Crnkovich. The former cheerleader shared a series of pictures from the moment she said "yes" on Instagram.

"What a surprise!!! Nate, you are the man of my dreams! You make life so bright and full of love," she wrote. "Our love story has brought so much happiness and growth to my life, & now we get to write a new chapter! I’ll love you forever, I can’t wait to be your wife!!!!!"

Nate replied, saying, "I love you future Mrs. Crnkovich 😉"

Kelcey's teammates shared their excitement, too. "Ahhhhh this is the most precious!!!!! So excited for y’all🥹🤍," Reece Allman wrote. "ahhh!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!! this makes me so happy!!! ❤️❤️❤️," Charly Barby, another star from the series, commented.

On Monday, Kelcey shared on her Instagram that she said "yes" to a wedding dress. "Found my dream dress 🤩," she said.

Kelcey also remains close with a ton of DCCs. The former cheerleader posted this sweet picture with her fellow teammates Chandi Dayle, Claire Wolford, and McKenzie Hughston after closing out the 2023-24 season. "Closing a special chapter…but taking my girls with me 💛," she wrote.

"BFFS FOREVER! I love you more than you know❤️," Chandi wrote in the comments."

"I’m welling up 😢😢😢😢 wouldn’t want to close a chapter like this with anyone else. I love youuuuu!!!!❤," Claire added. Meanwhile, McKenzie wrote, "Bestie for the restie!!! Watching you shine has been the biggest honor🩵 always proud of you!"
