“I think it was just a perfect summary of 13 years,” she told NBC10 Philadelphia of his March 4 speech. “I always say he’s not from here, but he gets it. That was the perfect example.”

While sharing his decision to leave the sport during a press conference, Jason gave Kylie—whom he married in 2018—a special shoutout, even reflecting on the first time they met after matching on Tinder in 2014. And while Kylie noted the moment made her “emotional,” it also made her laugh.

“It cracks me up that he tries to talk about what he remembers from that night,” she said, referencing the first time they met. “Because he was, as I’ve said before, intoxicated.”

Still, she was moved by the speech and the kind words he had for her, adding, “It was very, very sweet. Very kind. It was far too much credit.”

The 31-year-old—who shares daughters Wyatt, 4, Elliotte, 2, and Bennett, 12 months, with Jason—explained that she’d heard multiple version of his retirement speech over the years, as he had been contemplating hanging up his helmet for a while now.

And while she expected an “outpouring of love and support” from fans, she said the level they’ve received in the past 24 hours is “still shocking.”

As for Jason, he had a tearful thank you for Kylie during his speech, saying it was “no coincidence I have enjoyed my best years of my career with Kylie by my side.”

“Every accolade I have ever received has come with her in my life,” the 36-year-old said. “She has brought the best out of me through love, devotion, support, honesty, intelligence, and, of course, a swift kick in the ass from time to time.”
