Jake Paul’s girlfriend, Olympic speed-skater Jutta Leerdam, is feeling inspired after the YouTuber-turned-pro boxer defeated Nate Diaz, via unanimous decision, Saturday night at a sold-out American Airlines Center.
Leerdam — the 24-year-old five-time world champion speed skater — shared a collage of photos and videos from the fight night, including a clip of the couple kissing after Paul’s victory over the UFC and MMA veteran.
“I’m so so proud of you,” Leerdam wrote. “You have only been doing this sport for 3.5 years and make the biggest fights happen.
“You inspire me so much with your work ethic, the way you think big, and your crazy determination. You are special @jakepaul. My champion. ❤️.”
Paul and Leerdam — who went public with the romance on Instagram in April — were seen holding hands in the back hallways of the arena prior to the bout.
The blonde beauty looked stunning in a white tube top and tight maxi skirt during the event, where she was seen sitting and cheering with Paul’s mom, Pam Stepnick.
Paul also shared the clip of the couple kissing to his Instagram Story.
After the fight, Paul and Leerdam boarded a private plane together in a separate photo she shared.
Paul reportedly met Leerdam through Instagram late last year, and the pair hit it off after spending time together in Miami.
“She’s like the purest soul I’ve ever met out of anyone,” he said at the time. “.Pretty f–kin’ incredible of a woman, and I’m very happy with her. I’m in love,” Paul told his brother.
“Deeply in love, it’s so cool, bro. it’s crazy how life works, man.”
Leerdam, who turned 24 in December, previously dated fellow speed skater Koen Verweij before calling it quits in August 2022.
The Dutch athlete won a gold medal in the 1000m race at the ISU Speed Skating World Cup in Calgary in December.
She took to Instagram in June 2022 to share her cover of “Elle” Netherlands.
As for what’s next for Paul?
“The Problem Child,” whose record is now 7-1, with 4 KO wins, challenged Diaz to an MMA fight afterward.
“I’ll fight anybody,” Diaz said. “I don’t give a f–k.”
Paul and the Professional Fighters League, a promotion he is a brand ambassador for, have a standing $10 million offer for Diaz, according to ESPN.
Diaz said it would have to be co-promoted by his Real Fight Inc.
Paul’s suffered his first career loss in February, via split decision to Tommy Fury.
