Meet Jett Puckett, TikTok Star Pookie Campbell Puckett Husband
TikTok star Campbell Puckett and her husband Jett Puckett exchanged their wedding vows on 14 April 2018. The married couple are excited to celebrate their 6th wedding anniversary in April 2024. Pookie’s social media post suggests that they have known each other at least since 2018.
Pookie and Jett met when she was working as a flight attendant and he was a grad student. “I walked up to the prettiest girl at a wine bar in Philadelphia, just started talking to her,” Jett detailed in a Jan. 11 TikTok. “Two days later, we were inseparable.”
According to Campbell’s blog, the couple were engaged just 10 months after meeting. Around that time, she and Jett purchased a home in Atlanta.
Campbell too posted about their relationship in January 2023 where she started the post by writing “The best day of my life🤍 7 years ago.”
In the post, Jett shared that meeting “Campbell in March 2016 began the happiest time of my life. After six months, I knew she was the one. My original plan was to propose on her birthday in March during our planned trip to Spain. I went out of my way to make her think I hadn’t bought the ring yet. January rolled around, and we spontaneously decided to go to Hawaii to escape the Philadelphia snow. I realized Maui would be even better than Spain but had just 48 hours to plan the proposal.”
But most recently, Jett and Pookie went viral for a catchphrase “Pookie is looking absolutely fire tonight.” Though the Georgia-based pair has been creating videos about their marriage for years, videos of their date night outfits took off in recent weeks when Jett began consistently complimenting Campbell’s outfit of the day (OOTD) with Pookie, his endearing nickname for his lady love.
“Outfit is fire, Pookie,” Jett commented in one video, while he observed in another TikTok that Campbell was wearing a “quintessential Pookie outfit today.” “Little known fact,” he remarked in the Jan. 1 video, which showed the couple preparing for a day out in Paris. “I particularly love Pookie in a hat.”
However, the video that captivated TikTok users was posted on Jan. 14, when Campbell and Jett were on their way to a group date with pals, dressed in a racy black bustier top and matching trousers.
“Taking Pookie to a new spot tonight with three other couples and Pookie looks absolutely amazing,” Jett remarked in the video, which has been viewed over 6 million times. “Good lord, babe!”
Since then, saying “Pookie” as a compliment has become a meme. Dunkin’ Donuts even joined the Pookie mania, captioning a TikTok video with a stack of doughnuts, “Pookie is looking absolutely fire today.”
The Pucketts don’t share any children now but they are dog parents to a French Bulldog named Pierre.
