Proud of her man. JoJo Fletcher cheered on her fiancé, Jordan Rodgers, on his first day of work as a college football analyst on ESPN’s SEC Network with a sweet Instagram message.
The 25-year-old Bachelorette season 12 star shared an adorable photo of herself and the former NFL player, 27, from their recent surprise engagement party.
“So proud of this boy right here — Not only is he the most loving, kindhearted and selfless man.. But also unbelievably hardworking and driven,” Fletcher captioned the shot on Monday, August 22. “Congrats on your first week w/ the SEC Network bubbi! You deserve it.”
Rodgers also took to Instagram on Monday night to share the exciting news, posting a pic of himself looking handsome in a dark blue suit with two of his fellow sports broadcasters behind the news desk.
“Fun day back in the SEC, much easier without 100k screaming fans and giant angry men trying to kill me… but only slightly,” the former athlete quipped. “Tune in to SEC NOW live tomorrow!”
Earlier this month, Rodgers opened up about his new ESPN gig — and his new life in Dallas with Fletcher — during a conference call with reporters. “My career doesn’t change,” he explained on August 2. “I own a company that does nutrition coaching [MetPro], and I’ll be doing that from Dallas as well. … And then I’ve been doing broadcasting for the past year — doing radio for ESPN and doing some TV stuff here and there — and I’ll be working with ESPN and SEC Network as a college football analyst.”
The hunky reality star also addressed his SEC job in an ESPN statement at the time, explaining, “I’ve devoted my life to football. I was never the most talented player on the field. I had to work hard of fit, and sharing those experiences and that knowledge is my new focus.”
As fans know, football is also a priority for Rodgers’ estranged older brother, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Us Weekly exclusively revealed earlier this month that Aaron’s girlfriend of two years, Olivia Munn, is at the center of his family feud. The 36-year-old actress and model “has a strong personality, and every meeting she has had with [the family] has gone badly,” a source told Us at the time.
