George Kittle and his wife, Claire Kittle, have dated since their freshmen college years. Kittle and Claire Colette married in April 2019.
Claire attended the University of Iowa and was an athlete like George. She played for the Iowa Hawkeyes women's basketball team and averaged 1.5 points per match. She has also been active in the fitness industry, as she was a fitness model and still runs Claire Till Fitness.
Today, Claire supports her 29-year-old husband in his NFL games. She also works as a blogger with her own blog site 'Letter Set Go.'
George and his wife's relationship has undoubtedly been engaging. Let's see their relationship timeline and fun moments starting from their romantic beginning at college.
George Kittle And Claire Colette Met In College
The couple first met on chance when Claire was going to her basketball training session in 2012.
A particular moment bound them together: George stopped by to say 'Nice Helmet' for the pink helmet that she wore while riding her moped. This compliment eventually sparked a conversational aura around them. Sometimes you have to wonder how a small chance meeting can change people's lives!
Both were athletes, and Claire liked American football due to her family's love for it, so they shared many commonalities. After their first meeting, they eventually started talking more and became fast friends.
Their friendship then converted into developing feelings for each other, and they started dating soon after.
George's Prank Turned Into A Proposal
In 2018, the 49ers kickback developed an excellent idea for the proposal by pranking his eventual wife on a fake photoshoot. The 49ers' tight end shared his amusing tale in an interview with 97.5 The Game. He told how he persuaded Claire about a fake photoshoot the 49ers were doing for all the player couples to place them on the team's website.
When both of them reached the prank location, i.e., the Santa Cruz beach, along with the photographers and videographers of the 49ers.
Claire was surprised when they were posing for the photos one moment, and the next moment, he was asking her hand for marriage.
George talked about how he felt good after capturing his proposal on cameras, and it was a sight to behold. The moment turned even more joyous when Claire accepted.

His wife posted various beautiful wedding photos in her Instagram post on April 13, 2019, and shared her love and happiness on getting married to George. She also mentioned that she wasn't pregnant, so we can safely say they don't have a child yet.
George wore grey checkered pants, black dress shoes, and a white dress shirt as his wedding attire. His wife wore all white: a stunning jumpsuit, heels, and a perfectly tailored blazer. George also shared these photos on his Instagram and talked about his joy of finally marrying his best friend.
