"Love running in to my pal @Jewel on the field," O'Dell shared on Instagram. "Loved her from the 1st time I met her & now she's dating a Clemson fella, Charlie Whitehurst=awesome!"

Whitehurst was drafted by the NFL in 2006 after attending Clemson University. Today, he plays for the Indianapolis Colts.

Back in September, while promoting a new album and memoir, Jewel admitted to ET that she was "just starting to date" again after splitting from Ty Murray in 2014.

"I never thought I'd be dating, but here I am," she teased. "It's pretty fun!"

Together with her ex, Jewel is raising a 4-year-old son, Kase.

"Whatever makes Kase win is great for us," Jewel said of her current relationship with Murray. "We're very aware that having a divorce doesn't get you out of a relationship, so we're very dedicated to being great parents and doing what's best for him."

It's been more than 20 years since Jewel's debut, Pieces of You, was released and ET has been with her every step of the way. See her adorable first interview -- and her equally adorable reaction to watching it today -- in the player below.
