Swimsuit Model Katherine Webb Engaged To Quarterback AJ McCarron
College sweethearts Katherine and AJ have been together since 2012 and got engaged in Gulf Shores, Alabama — AJ even designed the huge sparkler himself! Jealous, ladies?
While Katherine Webb was crowned Miss Alabama in 2012, her claim to fame was during one of AJ’s football games in Jan. 2013 when ESPN cameras spotted her looking beautifully pensive as she watched AJ do his thing.
Her beauty scrambled the brain of ESPN announcer Brent Musberger, 73, who said, on live TV, “what a beautiful woman! Wow! Whoa!” Pretty innocuous as far as comments about a woman’s beauty go, and Katherine agreed that it wasn’t such a huge deal.
Katherine Webb: AJ Is ‘A Guy I Can See Myself Having A Real Future With’
Reports surfaced that AJ was jealous of his suddenly-famous girlfriend and was encouraging her to drop out of interviews — which is kind of insane. Later, Katherine told TMZ that her “decision to cancel the interviews was not made at A.J.’s request,” that she didn’t want their relationship to be about “celebrity status,” and that “he’s a guy [she] can see [herself] having a real future with.”
Well, she wasn’t wrong!
AJ has since graduated from the University of Alabama and with the upcoming NFL draft in June, fans are saying that he is likely to get into the coveted league. Meanwhile, Katherine has had a pretty fruitful career as a swimsuit model, her most notable recent appearance being in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2013. She was also a contestant on Splash, the celebrity diving show, but had to withdraw in its fifth week due to a back injury.
All the best to Katherine and AJ! Congratulations again to them both.
So, HollywoodLifers, are you happy Katherine and AJ? Or are you a teensy bit jealous that AJ has locked it down? Vote and comment!
