George Kittle is the star tight end for the San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League. The 49ers picked George during the fifth round of the 2017 NFL draft after he’d played college football for the Iowa Hawkeyes. Since then, George has established himself as one of the best tight ends in the league.

In 2018, Kittle set the single-season record for receiving yards by a tight end. The 49ers made it to the 54th Super Bowl on 2nd February 2019, but they lost to the Kansas City Chiefs after being ahead for most of the game. Kittle is currently getting over the defeat by taking a holiday in Mexico with his lovely wife Claire Till.

Claire has supported George throughout his career as a football player. This article will look at Claire’s relationship with George, her marriage, and her business endeavors.

George and Claire became friends after that moment, and the friendship quickly blossomed into romance. George and Claire were a couple throughout college.

George wanted to surprise Claire with his proposal, and so he decided to invite her to a fake team photoshoot. He told her that the 49ers had planned a photoshoot for the players and their wives and girlfriends for the team’s brochure and website. George planned with the team’s head photographer and video editors to have a fake photoshoot.

Kittle stated on 95.7 The Game that he distracted Claire before popping the question;

“We were doing a whole photoshoot on the beach, cameras, we had a drone down there, lighting, everything that you possibly need. Got her a little bit distracted and then cut to pop the question. It was pretty awesome.”

Thankfully for the couple, Claire said yes and wedding preparations began.

George and Claire got engaged in August 2018, and they were planning for a big wedding in 2020. However, the couple opted for a smaller occasion with family on 10th April 2019. The wedding took place at an Iowa City jewelry store owned by family friends. George’s father is ordained, and he conducted the ceremony. Kittle’s mom was the photographer.

Claire shared the news and expressed her joy via a message posted on Instagram. She posted a picture of the couple, and attached the following caption;

“I love you I love you I love you! We pulled off a one of a kind wedding, thank you for gifting me this unexplainable love. I’m yours forever. Claire Kittle & I mean it. I got a HUSBAND y’all!!!”

It later emerged that George commemorated his wedding day by getting a tattoo of the Joker. He spent the day before the wedding getting the tattoo inked on his arm. Claire told ESPN that she was initially against the idea of the tattoo. She said;

“So at first, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, that’s the worst idea you’ve ever had. I hate that.’ But then after he had explained to me, all of the meaning behind it, and then seeing it in person, it’s actually really cool. So I do really like it now. That’s just George.”
