A victory for his team in the Super Bowl was not enough for one Los Angeles Rams player on Sunday who surprised his girlfriend by getting down on one knee to propose.
As teammates passed around the Vince Lombardi Trophy, safety Taylor Rapp decided to pop the question to Dani Johnson with a box bearing an engagement ring.
The player, wearing a Super Bowl championship T-shirt and cap, asked, “Will you marry me?” before placing the ring on his shocked girlfriend’s finger and the pair hugged as onlookers cheered.
“MORE THAN ONE RING TONIGHT!!” the Rams’ Twitter post said.
Rapp earned a Super Bowl ring as the Rams defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20 at the SoFi Stadium outside of Los Angeles.
Another Rams player also had a second major reason to celebrate besides the American football victory.
The wife of wide receiver Van Jefferson went into labour during the game, ESPN reported. He skipped the postgame celebration and rushed to the hospital.
A few hours after the contest ended, Jefferson posted a picture on Instagram of himself smiling and holding a baby. The caption read “x2!!!!,” an apparent reference to his second child.
The Los Angeles Rams took on the Cincinnati Bengals for what was the 56th running of the NFL’s showpiece event.
The Rams claimed a late touchdown to win the contest 23-20.
The Super Bowl is one of the biggest cultural events in the US and as well as the huge half-time show, blockbuster film trailers and celebrity-filled adverts also air during the many commercial breaks.
