Kate Hudson Sparks Romance Rumors With JJ Watt After Snapchatting Candlelit 'Date'
By John Boone
J.J. Watt may have been "heartbroken" when Jennifer Aniston got married, but it seems he found solace in Aniston's Mother's Day co-star, Kate Hudson.
The 36-year-old actress posted a Snapchat on Monday where she and the 27-year-old NFL star are playing with a starry filter over a candlelit dinner. When it doesn't appear to work on Watt, he quips, "Apparently the stars belong to the hottest person on the date. That's why Kate wins."
Since then, the Houston Texans player has simply tweeted, "lol."
Hudson confessed she's been "dating" since splitting from Muse frontman Matthew Bellamy in 2014 and has previously been linked to Nick Jonas, 23. Meanwhile, Watt was with tennis star Caroline Wozniacki until 2015, at which point he said he was "unsuccessful" in his dating life.
For what it's worth, his mom, Connie Watt, thinks he's a catch.
"I think J.J. would make such a great catch for anybody, because he is a true down-home person who has such a good heart. What you see is what you get with J.J." she told ET.
