Harrison Butker and his wife, Isabelle Butker, enjoyed a rare red carpet date night on Thursday.

The couple were all smiles attending the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl ring ceremony at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, one month after Harrison’s controversial commencement speech went viral.

The NFL player, 28, sported a gray suit with cream detailing to the event, completing his look with a white dress shirt and a black bow tie.

He accessorized, of course, with championship rings from his team’s 2020 and 2023 Super Bowl successes.

As for Isabella, she wore a green long-sleeve wrap dress, silver heels and dangling earrings, with her dark tresses down and curled.

The high school sweethearts have been married since February 2018 and share two children — son James and a daughter whose name they have yet to reveal.

Harrison referenced their family while speaking to Benedictine College graduates in his sexist, anti-LGBTQ+ address in May.

“My beautiful wife, Isabelle, would be the first to say her life truly started when she started living her vocation as a wife and as a mother,” the kicker said at the time.

“Some of you may go on to lead successful careers in the world, but I would venture to guess that the majority of you are most excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into this world,” Harrison, whose mother is an accomplished physicist, continued.

Despite rampant backlash, the athlete defended his remarks at a “Courage Under Fire” event in Nashville later that same month.

“If it wasn’t clear that the timeless Catholic values are hated by many, it is now,” he said, insisting that he did not “regret” what he said “at all.”

Harrison waited nearly one month to break his silence, with many of his teammates speaking out earlier that same week.

Patrick Mahomes called Harrison a “good person” in a post-practice press conference, remaining vague about the things they don’t “necessarily agree” on.

Travis Kelce, however, clarified on his and Jason Kelce’s “New Heights” podcast that he disagreed with “the majority” of Harrison’s views.

Jason poked fun at the speech during the episode, joking that he asked his “frustrated” wife, Kylie Kelce, to “go back into the kitchen and make [him] a sandwich” after listening to it.
