Astros’ right fielder Josh Reddick and girlfriend Jett Elkins Arklin became engaged in June this year, after he got down on one knee at the Space Center in Houston! He made sure the ring was as monumental as the location, and that Elkins could never say no. On that note, here are five facts you didn’t know about snowboarder Jett Elkins.
#1. Jett Elkins Graduated in California
Elkins is a proud alumna of Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. She is originally from Covina, California, and is 27 years old. She graduated with a degree in sports medicine and coaching from Pepperdine and then went on to receive a degree in clinical psychology from Australia.
Her love for snowboarding can be seen on her various social media platforms, and she has also won many competitions, like the USASA National Championships.
Elkins won Gold in 2015 at Copper Mountain, and she’s also snowboarded in many countries across the globe.
#2. Elkins Has a Godson Who Also Loves Snowboarding
Elkin’s godson, Sky Hughes, is 6 years old. He’s also an avid snowboard enthusiast, and is often seen accompanying his godmother on top of icy mountains. He has his very own Instagram page, too, where he claims he has been snowboarding since he was 11 months old.
The cutie receives personal training from Jett, who was also a snowboard instructor and supervisor at the Breckenridge Ski Resort in Colorado.
Apart from the extreme snow sporting, she’s also an “Adrenaline junkie, athlete, traveler, dirt biker, wakeboarder and skydiver,” as she explains on Facebook.
#3. She and Reddick Have Been Together Since 2007
Elkins seems to have been 17 when she began dating then-22-year-old Josh Reddick back in 2007. She posted a sweet nine-years-of-togetherness photo on Instagram, calling Reddick her best friend through “thick and thin.”
She also says on their wedding website, “Both Josh and I are as competitive as it gets so our date nights usually consist of competing against each other at something. He’ll never admit it but I beat him at a lot of things.”
The couple has been through a long journey together, and in June 2018, they set yet another milestone by getting engaged.
#4. Josh Reddick and Georgette Elkins Chose the Minute Maid Park for Official Photographs
After Reddick popped the question with a stunning double halo diamond ring from Diamond Mansion, the couple decided to take their official engagement photos at the Astros’ Minute Maid Park in downtown Houston. Elkins’ best friend Monique Nethercott, who is a photographer, snapped the happy couple and their five dogs.
