Jason Kelce insists his massive Irish Wolfhounds, Winnie and Baloo, are ‘very loving’ and ‘incredibly gentle’, despite towering over the 6-goot-3 NFL star… but warns they ‘hate being away from their owners’

Philadelphia Eagles star Jason Kelce gushed about his two massive dogs when asked for advice on whether to get one by a fan on social media. 

Jason and Kylie Kelce’s family of five expands beyond their three beautiful daughters with the couple, who tied the knot in 2018, are also proud owners to two Irish Wolfhounds, Winnie and Baloo. 

In a previous photo shared by the Eagles center, one of the wolfhounds can be seen reaching for a slice of pizza on its hind legs. The dog towers over Kelce, despite the NFL veteran’s 6-foot-3 frame.

Despite their massive size, Kelce insisted that the canine giants were actually ‘very loving’ pets. 

‘They are wonderful animals, absolutely adore mine,’ he posted on X, in response to a fan who asked for advice on whether to get one or not.

‘Very loving and connected with their humans. Not for everyone though. If you travel a lot, have limited amount of space, keep food on the counter, and have nice furniture, they may not be for you.’ 

He added: ‘Incredibly gentle, loyal, majestic lapdogs that hate being away from their owners.’

The two dogs even made it into the Kelce family photo last year with the pups wearing reindeer antlers for the occasion. 

In a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot with Minted, Kylie joked that it was hard to corral the ‘smelly’ dogs into the photo.

‘Person on the naughty list [of] Team Kelce is Baloo,’ Kylie joked, warning crew members about leaving snacks out for the dog to steal. ‘If we lose another loaf of bread to Baloo Kelce …’

Kelce chimed in, adding their dog will ‘eat anything in sight.’

‘The vets are like, “Hey, don’t give him chocolate.” We’re not givin’ him chocolate, he’s choosing chocolate,’ the Philadelphia Eagles center quipped, with Kylie concurring that it definitely earned Baloo the ‘naughty’ label.

However, while Kelce appears happy with his wolfhounds roaming around the house, he’s in no hurry to expand the family’s pets. 

During an episode of his New Heights podcast with his brother Travis in December, Kylie attempted to persuade her husband to become a cat lover. 

Kylie and Travis even reflected on how they could work together to convince Jason to add a feline to his Philly home.

‘No, here’s the deal, I told Jason that I want to get a cat. And he told me no. And I feel like you might like cats now,’ she said, referring to Travis’ relationship with Taylor Swift, who is known for her love of cats. The pop star is a proud owner of three little felines – Meredith Gray, Olivia Benson and Benjamin Button.

Following Jason’s drunken, shirtless antics at the Chiefs-Bills game in January, Kylie joked that she would get a cat without his permission under an Instagram post shared by New Heights. 

‘I’m not asking for permission, I’m doing this.’ – the exact quote I will say when I’m grabbing the keys to go get a cat,’ she wrote.

Jason responded by saying, ‘Ky tweeted this or Instagrammed this and immediately, I googled ”how to lose a cat.”

‘Nothing came up. The only thing that came up was like, ‘Oh, are you sad you just lost a cat?’ ‘ he added. ‘Like, no, I need to lose a cat. I’m not worried about losing it. I want to lose it, and I’m surprised that there was nowhere to research good ways to accidentally lose a cat.’
