Josh and Hailee were first seen spending time together on May 26, 2023. The two of them first sparked dating rumors when they were spotted on what appeared to be a date in New York City. The QB appeared to be affectionate with her, although it wasn’t clear at the time if the two were on a date. While Hailee mostly keeps her personal life out of the spotlight, a source close to her said that they were ” getting to know each other” to People in June 2023. Another insider had told the outlet that they were “having fun” in May. Two months after they were first seen together, Hailee was spotted making out with Josh while they vacationed in Mexico on a Fourth of July vacation.

Josh has been a Buffalo Bills player since 2018. After his first season, he was named team captain in 2019. He’s been a starting QB ever since, and he’s led the Bills to great seasons, and he’s made the Pro Bowl twice. He was also very supportive of his teammate Damar Hamlin after his terrifying on-field collapse at the beginning of 2023. Prior to being spotted with Hailee, he had dated former college cheerleader Brittany Williams from 2015 to 2023.
