Halle Woodard is the girlfriend of the former Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott. He played college football at Ohio State University and was named one of the best players in 2015.

The Dallas Cowboys chose him as their fourth pick in the 2016 NFL draft. He played for the Cowboys for seven years, making it to the Pro Bowl three times and being named one of the best players twice. Halle, on the other hand, is a professional nurse and a personal trainer.

Woodard, who loves to stay below the media radar, came to attention after she started dating the NFL running back. They have been together for over five years and despite a couple of ups and downs, they seem to be perfect to each other.

Not only her boyfriend, but Halle also has a connection to sports as she was a part of the school’s track and field team at J.J Pearce High School in Richardson. In fact, Woodard remained a part of the team until her graduation.

She Grew Up in Stephenville, Texas

Woodard was born in Iowa and grew up in Stephenville, Texas. Much of Halle’s early life details are missing, however, we can tell that she was born on November 24, 1993. Many online tabloids have mentioned Halle was born in 1992, however, one post from her current beau Elliott’s mother, Dawn Elliott says she was born in 1993 indeed.

Back on 24th November 2018, Dawn wished her future daughter-in-law her 25th birthday writing, “Happy 25th Birthday to this beautiful young lady” in the caption. Have a look,

Ergo, we can safely say Woodard was born in ’93. Regarding her parents, there’s little to no information about this aspect either, however, some online portals have reported Halle’s mother is Patricia Simpson. But, her mother’s identity is yet to be verified.

Woodard Holds A Degree in Nursing

The Dallas native completed her nursing at Iowa State University in 2013. Before that, Woodard studied at J.J Pearce High School in Richardson, just outside Dallas. During high school, Halle was an athlete on the school’s track and field team where she remained until her graduation.

A couple of years after her graduation, Halle started working as a bartender at Concrete Cowboy. According to her Facebook profile, she started the job in 2016,  however, it’s not clear when she left the job as she has been away from Facebook for over five years now.

According to her Insta bio, Halle is an Aesthetic Nurse Injector at The Natural Nurse. Besides, Sports Keeda reports Woodard works as a personal trainer besides being an aesthetic nurse. The outlet further mentions Halle is experienced in botox injections, laser hair removal, and dermabrasion among others.

Is Dating Ezekiel Elliott Since 2017 – When Did They Meet?

Woodard met the NFL star back in 2017. The lovebirds crossed their path in Dallas a year after the Dallas Cowboys picked Elliott in the fourth draft. While they both remain quite reticent regarding their love life, it’s not a secret that the duo hit it off right away and started dating.

Even though the lovebirds don’t share their love life in public, Ezekiel’s mother, Dawn has shared a number of posts that featured her son’s girlfriend, Halle. In fact, one of the early posts that hinted at Halle and Ezekiel’s relationship was shared by Dawn on October 3, 2017. Though sporadic, Dawn has shared a number of snaps of her future daughter-in-law, Halle.

They Are Reportedly On And Off

Every relationship has ups and downs so did the relationship between Woodard and Elliott. The pair were reportedly broken up a couple of times in the past. As a matter of fact, they were once on a break for over four months during which they had even unfollowed one another.

As per some online sources, it was after the NFL running back was arrested over an altercation with security at the Electric Daisy Festival in Las Vegas.

Halle and Elliott, however, reconciled later and have gotten stronger ever since. Meanwhile, it was rumored that the footballer even proposed to his girlfriend after they rekindled their romance, however, their engagement rumor was never addressed.

Halle and Zeke Attended a Game Together

We have seen Woodard attending her boyfriend’s matches now and then, however, the duo rarely makes their public appearance. One of their rare public outings was back in May 2021, when Zeke and his girlfriend went to a Dallas Mavericks game.

Alongside them were Dallas Cowboys legends Dak Prescott and Michael Irvin.

Halle Gets Along With Her Future In-Laws

Woodard is pretty close to her boyfriend’s family. She gets along well with her future mother-in-law and her beau’s two sisters. She even spends her free time with them and has gone on vacations together.

In one photo Zeke’s mother, Dawn shared on her Instagram, we can see Halle with Dawn and her daughter enjoying their time together in Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur. Besides, Halle travels to several places with Zeke’s family members. Woodard is so close to Zeke’s mother that, Dawn calls her daughter-in-love.

Things You Should Know about Their Marriage and Children

People have been curious to know if Halle and her longtime boyfriend, Ezekiel are married. But, the straightforward answer to this question would be “No.” The boyfriend and girlfriend have already spent almost six years together, but are still young and might take some more time before tying the knot.

Besides, regarding their children, Halle and her bf Zeke don’t have any children as of yet. Both of them are occupied with their profession which might delay their parenthood for a couple of more years. Having said that, we have no clue about the NFL star’s opinion on having kids and starting a new family.
