Watt a sweetheart!
Houston Texans defensive-end J.J. Watt showed that behind that tough exterior, he is a big softie after “proposing” to a young fan and she became his “pretend wife for the day.”
Earlier last month, a YouTube video showed a 6-year-old girl crying because she was too young to marry him.
“I wish I was 25,” the girl, identified as Breanna, sobs in the video. “I want to marry J.J. Watt!”
The clip quickly went viral.
On Monday, Watt asked his Twitter fans to help him find the little girl and promised to “turn those tears into a smile.”
And his mission was a success– the pair met up on Wednesday, with him getting on one knee with a bouquet of flowers and a lollipop ring and “proposing” to his young super-fan.
“Thanks to your help, we found 6-year-old Breanna and she said yes to being my pretend wife for the day…” Watt wrote.
More than 50,000 people “liked” the photos on Facebook.
