Congratulations to former University of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron and his former Miss Alabama USA girlfriend, now fiancée, Katherine Webb on their engagement! According to Katherine's tweet, AJ designed the ring himself.
If you don't know the story of Katherine and AJ, let me give you a brief rundown. AJ played football for the University of Alabama. Katherine graduated from Auburn University. Alabama and Auburn are long-time rivals (one of the best rivalries in sports history). Katherine gained notoriety during the 2013 BCS National Championship Game in which the cameras panned to Katherine and announcer Brent Musburger gushed about how beautiful she is. Katherine's Twitter followers jumped from 2,000 to over 175,000 overnight (including many celebrities). From those few minutes on camera during the game, Katherine went on to judge the Miss USA pageant, cover the Super Bowl for Inside Edition, appear as a contestant on the reality show Splash, and model in the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
Good luck to AJ McCarron in the upcoming NFL Draft and best wishes to the couple in their life together as husband and wife!
