Meet the gorgeous Naja Cowan; she is the girlfriend of NFL player Deion Jones. Actually, not only Ms. Cojan is his better half, but she is also the proud momma of Deion’s adorable daughter Kay. 6’1″ Jones is the talented linebacker for the Atlanta Falcons, who also played college football at Louisiana State University prior to being drafted by Atlanta in 2016.
No doubt you Falcons fans know plenty about Deion, therefore let us tell you what we know about his lovely lady.
24-year-old Naja was born Najaj Achee Joi Cowan on January 15, 1993, in New Jersey. She is the daughter of Alesia Barfield and former U.S Army Sergeant Anthony Cowan Sr. ages 51 and 50, respectively.
Naja graduated in 2011, from Rossview High School in Clarksville, Tennessee. She holds a biology major from Loyola University and is working on becoming a Resident Nurse.
Ms. Cowans is going to nursing school at Chamberlain College of Nursing in Atlanta. Ironically Naja a former track athlete had the option of studying at LSU, however later changed her mind.
Naja and Deion met at a Mardi Gras parade thru mutual friends, while he was a senior in high school and she was in college; while he was into her, Naja wasn’t at all.
They saw each other two years later, at that time he was already playing football, but that only made Naja deny him even more. But Jones wouldn’t take no for an answer, and after continuously asking her out, Naja finally said yes.
“Our first date was to get sushi and a week later, he confessed his love for me. He says it’s because I did not want him that made him pursue me even more.”
Naja gave birth to her and Deion’s first child together, their beautiful baby daughter Kali Rae on June 14, 2017.
