Jason Kelce’s former Philadelphia Eagles teammate Beau Allen hilariously recalled his role on the center’s first date with now-wife Kylie Kelce.
Kelce and Kylie, who tied the knot in 2018, met on the dating app Tinder in 2015, however the NFL star didn’t make the best first impression.

“I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again,” Allen began when asked for his side of the story. ‘It was the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. “That was harder than climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.”

“What people don’t know is that Kylie and Jason met on Tinder, so for a week or two before they met, they were chatting online, Kelce was talking about this girl,” Allen added.

“It was like cobblestone streets, you were fighting with me,” he said. ‘And I’m like trying hard, I dropped you!’
