When Are Clyde Edwards-Helaire and O’Conner Getting Married?

No official sources have confirmed their marriage date yet nor has there been news of them getting secretly married. Clyde and JoJo have been engaged for over a year but it doesn’t look like there will be wedding bells any time soon. Both of them are in their early 20s and are enjoying their life to the fullest.

Clyde Broke Up With His College Sweetheart, Desiree Jones

Before JoJo, Clyde was in a relationship with college sweetheart, Desiree Jones. The natives of Baton Rouge met each other when they were attending Louisiana State University. At the time, Clyde played football while Jones was studying Child and Family Studies there. They started going out on September 9, 2013.

Their relationship lasted for a few years before calling it quits. Ever since their split, the former couple has deleted their pictures from their social media and neither of them is following each other. Though the reason behind their breakup isn’t disclosed for public knowledge, both of them have certainly moved on from their past.

At present, Desiree is a licensed Esthetician.
