Braxton Berrios and Alix Earle hard launched their relationship a while ago, but the internet has been in a frenzy about the power couple since they first sparked casual romance rumors in the spring.

The NFL wide receiver and TikTok star confirmed their relationship in November when they went on vacation together in the Bahamas for his birthday—a trip that she sweetly planned and went all out for, and the place where Berrios officially asked her to be his girlfriend. Prior to that week, Earle (and her internet fans, social media followers and podcast listeners) referred to the 28-year-old simply as “NFL man.”

The 22-year-old attends tons of Miami Dolphins games, and makes content out of her glam, outfits and pregame festivities. The couple do their best to spend valuable time together and step away from work in order to be fully in the moment on their date nights.

“She’s incredible,” Berrios gushed to People, adding that Coach Mike McDaniel loves to tease him about his girlfriend. “Anything that she can do to help me out, she does, and anything I can do to help her out, I do as well.”

While the North Carolina native isn’t new to the spotlight and being on camera, he is rather new to the world of social media, especially the idea of making a living off of it. Lucky for him, he gets to learn from the best. The New Jersey native and Hot Mess podcast host has amassed a following of 6.2 million on TikTok and 3.3 million on Instagram.

“She does a great job with doing her work and then putting the phone down and doing everything else. Then, when she picks up the phone, I completely understand its work,” Berrios continued. “It’s never been an issue. It doesn’t bother me. Honestly, to me, I met her, I understood, learned what she did and you understand that this is how she makes her money. This is her career. This is what she loves to do. And so, to me, it never gets old, and it never gets boring. Honestly it’s fun. I enjoy it.”
