New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora has collected a lot of trophies throughout his career, including but not limited to two Super Bowl championships in the past five seasons. However, winning the Vince Lombardi trophy may not be the 31-year-old’s most impressive achievement. According to the NY Post, Umenyiora proposed to his girlfriend Leila Lopes last week over dinner in Atlanta. It appears that she said yes, as Osi later shared some photos on Twitter of the couple’s trip to Europe and referred to her as his “fiancee” on several occasions.

The couple reportedly met last year during Fashion Week. She may not be the most famous beauty pageant winner in the country at the moment (thanks to this young lady), but Umenyiora should certainly be proud to call Lopes his future wife.
