In 2019, DK Metcalf made his debut for the Seattle Seahawks and enjoyed a sensational rookie season. Away from his football achievements, Metcalf is all about his family and regularly dotes on them.

DK Metcalf was born on December 14, 1997, in Oxford, Mississippi to parents Terrence and Tonya Metcalf. Like his son, Terrence also played college football for Ole Miss before enjoying seven years in the NFL.

The NFL rising star was raised alongside his four siblings by both parents. Metcalf has a deep attachment to his family and chose to play for Ole Miss to be close to them.

The player has a profound respect for his father, and this was highlighted during the recent Father's Day celebrations. The 22-year-old wide receiver took to his Instagram page to post a heartfelt tribute to his dad.

While sharing a montage of pictures featuring his dad, Metcalf revealed how significant an influence the former NFL guard has been on his life and career. He

wrote in the caption

:

"...For 22 years, you've had my back and raised me to be who I am today and I couldn't have been blessed with a greater Role Model!"

Even though Metcalf comes from a family with a strong NFL pedigree, the rookie has had to pave the way for himself with some eye-catching performances during the 2019 season. 

Metcalf has undoubtedly put in the hard work to get to where he is right now, but he has also had the unwavering support of his family, especially his parents.

 However, things took a different turn when he was spotted with IG model Cirena Wilson.

Tonya and Terrence could not hold back their excitement when he got selected in the second round of the 2019 NFL draft. In a special message to their son, the couple revealed how proud they are of his achievements.

Since making his NFL debut in September 2019, Metcalf has been very vocal about the vital role his parents have played in his life.

In October 2019, the footballer surprised his mom with an early birthday gift. While sharing the special moment on his Instagram, he wrote:

"I love you Momma, you have been my rock since the beginning, that's why I'm here. Happy Early Birthday and thank you for Everything..."

In the video, Tonya could be seen crying as she thanked her son for the birthday gift, a Chevrolet Suburban truck. The post drew several reactions from his fans, with many of them commending him for the sweet gesture.

Metcalf never shies away from flaunting his family on social media, but when it comes to his romantic life, the young NFL star has kept things away from the public's prying eyes. 

However, things took a different turn when he was spotted with IG model Cirena Wilson. Not much is known about Wilson or the nature of their relationship, but the two had a great time together throughout Super Bowl weekend.

While there is no certainty regarding his current relationship status, one thing that cannot be disputed is Metcalf's commitment to his family. A close second is his love for football.
