Miami Dolphins receiver Braxton Berrios finds himself in uncharted emotional territory as he reflects on his unique connection with his girlfriend, Alix Earle. During a recent getaway to the Bahamas, Berrios expressed the unprecedented nature of his feelings for the social media influencer on Earle’s “Hot Mess” podcast.
In a fan Q&A session, Berrios shared, “The way that I feel when I’m with her is different, and I’ve never felt that way before.” He emphasized that the source of his happiness lies in simply being with Earle, highlighting that it’s not about her actions or words but the genuine joy she brings into his life.
This romantic revelation comes in the wake of Berrios’ previous relationship with model Sophia Culpo, which ended amid accusations of betrayal and infidelity. Despite the controversies surrounding his past, Berrios and Earle’s connection flourished, with the two first linked in February.
Referred to as “NFL man” by Earle, Berrios opened up about what he values most in their relationship, noting, “One of the main things that I love and appreciate about us is that we have fun doing nothing or doing anything.” He elaborated on their carefree approach to daily activities, even turning a routine trip to the grocery store into an enjoyable event.
The couple, who initially began hanging out in March, took their time before officially labeling their relationship. Earle, citing the importance of trust and understanding, revealed the gradual progression of their connection.
The confirmation of their relationship took a public turn during Alex Cooper’s “Call Her Daddy” live show in Chicago. In a surprise appearance, Earle asked Berrios to be her boyfriend, concluding the episode with a heartfelt video montage capturing the special moments of their journey together.
Earle also fondly recounted a significant moment when she expressed her love for Berrios on the sidelines before the Dolphins’ dominant victory over the Broncos on September 24. As they continue to cherish the simple joys of everyday life, the couple finds solace in each other’s company, seated side by side at dinner and embracing the uniqueness of their bond.
