Who’s the major hunk that Jewel was just spotted cozying up to? Say hello to Charlie Whitehurst, an NFL player who has won Jewel’s heart. Find out more about Jewel’s new man here!
A new year brought a new man for Jewel! While attending the NCAA Football Championship, the 41-year-old singer had no problem showing off her new boyfriend, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Charlie Whitehurst, 33, and for good reason — he’s a total hottie. But surely Jewel saw more in Charlie than just his good looks, so let’s get to know him a little better!
1. He has played for four different NFL teams in his career.
After playing QB for Clemson, Charlie was picked up by the San Diego Chargers in the third round of the 2006 NFL Draft. In his 10 pro seasons since, he has also played for the Seattle Seahawks, Tennessee Titans, and the Colts, which he joined midway through the 2015 season.
2. He’s nearly a foot taller than Jewel!
Considering Charlie plays football professionally, it’s not all that surprising that he is a big dude. Measuring at 6′ 5,” Charlie is 11 inches taller than 5′ 6″ Jewel. She must go on her tiptoes to give him a kiss! Stream Jewel’s music ad-free RIGHT HERE.
3. He has a lot of hair…but totally owns it.
Thanks to his thick shoulder-length hairdo, Charlie can rock quite the man bun. Other than his long locks, Charlie’s entire body is pretty hairy, but he’s not ashamed of it. Charlie has posted several Instagram posts showing off his hairy bod!
4. He’s a big outdoorsman.
Whether he is fishing or hunting birds, Charlie’s love for the outdoors comes from his backwoods Georgia roots. He even revealed his secret to shooting success: a Browning “Sweet Sixteen” shotgun!
5. He loves food and live music.
Many of Charlie’s Instagram pics are of what he’s eating (some of which doesn’t exactly look appealing) or what show he’s attending. He has posted a few pics of The Black Keys, but now that he’s dating Jewel, we’re thinking we’ll be seeing a show or two of hers will be popping up in the near future!
