A fourth-round pick of the 2016 NFL Draft, Bush spent his first six seasons with the Chicago Bears. He was signed as a free agent by the Chiefs in 2022, and last year, the Chiefs tied him down to a one-year contract. 

Recently, against the Baltimore Ravens, the Chiefs’ safety, Deon, put on a spectacular performance in the second half of the game. He came up with the game-sealing interception in the endzone in the fourth quarter, helping the Chiefs return to the Super Bowl.

Deon Bush And Amina Smith Relationship Timeline 

The football couple, Deon Bush and Amina Smith, began dating when they were in Miami. When Amina transferred to the University of Miami, Deon was in his freshman year. 

Bush played four years of collegiate football at Miami, where he was one of the top defensive players. It was on March 16, 2014, that Amina shared the first photo of her with her lover. 

She captioned the post, “Church on Sunday,” and a few of her friends joked in the comment section asking when she started visiting the church. After a few months, Deon was seen beside Amina at her graduation ceremony, and a year later year, Amina was seen doing the same. 

After Deon was drafted by the Bears in 2014, Amina shared a photo of Deon with his Bears gear and hugging her. She captioned the post, “Blessings on blessings on blessings.”

In 2018, after four years of dating, the Bush went down on one knee as he proposed to Amina during their trip to San Jose, Costa Rica. Amina shared a gallery of images from the trip and that of her big rock. 

A few months after the proposal, the couple organized a party in Chicago, Illinois, and later had their engagement photoshoots. The couple had planned to tie the knot on June 20, 2020, but postponed the ceremony due to the global pandemic. 

Then, on February 20, 2021, the couple finally walked down the aisle in the presence of their closest family and friends. Amina shared a few gorgeous images from the ceremony, but the footballer has preferred not to share too much about his personal life on Instagram. 

Deon And Amina Are Parents 

On September 11, 2022, the couple announced they were expecting a baby boy. Amina shared images of her and Deon holding the sonography photos as they wore color-coordinated outfits.

Amina captioned the post, “This word has been on my heart since the start of the year, and now I feel like I know exactly why. We couldn’t be more excited for this new chapter of life. Can’t wait to meet you, baby boy.”

Last year in January, the couple had their maternity photoshoot. In the shoot video, it is revealed that they had chosen to name their child Deuce. A month later, Amina shared the first photo of their child. 

Amina couldn’t be present at the University of Phoenix Stadium to watch her hubby win his first Super Bowl ring. But maybe this year, we can see Amina and Bush Jr rooting for Deon in Las Vegas.
