It’s been a roller coaster of an offseason for social media influencers Allison Kuch and her NFL husband, Isaac Rochell.
Kuch, who is expecting her first child with Rochell, explained in a recent TikTok video that the couple is experiencing “a lot of unknowns” as the NFL free agent continues to work out for teams.
“If you’re not in the NFL, you might be thinking to yourself, ‘Wow, it’s really unfortunate that he didn’t sign earlier this year,'” Kuch said in a recent video.
“Isaac not being signed was the biggest blessing for us because he would have missed me finding out I was pregnant, going to all my ultrasounds, all those memories and him being able to be there for him.”
Kuch then defended Rochell from online trolls who mocked him for not being signed to a team as training camps loom in late July.
“But then you have people in the comments like, ‘Omg, he’s not signed,'” Kuch said.
“There will be a day when my husband chooses to retire, but today is not that day, or this year for that matter — regardless of what a guy named Jerry in Kentucky thinks.”
Kuch did not mention the teams Rochell has coached with in his video.
“My husband has had a few workouts this offseason and I haven’t been the one that’s been training him, it’s been other people — you know, other companies in different states,” she said.
Rochell was with the Browns before signing with the Raiders in December 2022.
Kuch, who filmed the TikTok video while she and Rochelle enjoyed their babymoon in Mexico, also explained why she doesn’t feel comfortable giving updates on their future plans just yet.
“Because of the NFL, I have this one dilemma. I don’t know what state I’m giving birth in,” she said.
“… There have been a lot of updates, but I’m not going to say anything until there’s pen to paper, and even then I’m thinking, should I say anything?
“So I guess the update is I don’t really feel comfortable giving an update. You get one when you get one… There are a lot of unknowns right now and people like to think that just is the team – but the fact that I don’t know what state I’m going to give birth in, what doctor I’m going to see or where I’m going to live is a lot. We take it day by day and whatever happens, happens.”
Kuch did give something of an update in a separate TikTok videorevealing that the couple’s gender reveal party is set for July 15.
“We’ve already chosen the baby’s name and now I just need to know where I’m going to live and where I’m going to give birth,” she said.
Kuch also explained that the couple decided to have their baby moon earlier in her pregnancy since she is due in December, late in the NFL season.
The couple announced Kuch’s pregnancy in June, posting a video on social media showing the college sweethearts celebrating after a positive pregnancy test in April.
Kuch and Rochell ran away in December 2020 before tying the knot again at a destination wedding in April 2021.
Kuch gained attention on social media in late 2019, thanks in part to her videos detailing the NFL lifestyle.
“I started on social media just sharing my life about me and my husband and our journey together because so many people say, ‘He’s in the NFL, not you,’ but his lifestyle definitely affects mine,” Kuch told The Post in an exclusive interview in February.
“Being able to show people what’s actually happening, and I get so much feedback that people say to me, ‘Oh, I didn’t know he could just leave the team in the middle of the season,’ or, ‘I didn’t even think about how you get a six-month lease’ or ‘How do you break a lease if he gets a haircut’ and all that, so I’ve loved showing every bit of it.”
