SO cute! Aly Raisman could be off the market! Colton Underwood, a tight end for the Oakland Raiders, surprised her with a congratulatory video after her Olympic success! But, he slipped in an EPIC date request and it’s absolutely ADORABLE! See her reaction here!
Aly Raisman, 22, may have to fit in some romance time in her already busy schedule. After the Olympic champion walked away with gold and silver medals in Rio, she was asked out by NFL player, Colton Underwood, 24, in a new video recorded by Yahoo Sports! He congratulated the U.S. women’s gymnastics team captain and slipped in a DOUBLE DATE request with the biggest smile on his face, and it was actually the cutest thing we’ve EVER seen!
“You know, if you’re ever in San Jose and want to go on a double date with me and Andrew and Shawn, let me know,” he said. Colton is referring to his friend and teammate, Andrew East, 24, who also happens to be married to Aly’s friend and retired Olympic gymnast, Shawn Johnson, 24. We have to point out that Aly’s gymnastics tour makes a stop in San Jose this September, so you know we will be keeping a close eye on these two, as a date could be in the very near future!
Aly looked like she was blushing and admitted, “They’ve actually told me about him before,” — We’re assuming she means Shawn and her hubby. Then she said, “He’s very cute.” Aly was asked if she knew who Colton was, where she replied, “Yeah,” and added, “Yeah, I would go out on a date with him.” AH! How cute?! The flirty chatter didn’t end there though. She took to Twitter to publicly thank Colton for his message! Aly pretty much sealed the deal, confirming that the date would indeed happen by revealing she was “looking forward” to “meeting” him!
@Colt3FIVE thanks for the sweet video…. looking forward to meeting you :)

We’re hoping to see some epic double date pics and a potential new couple here! This is SO exciting, because Aly definitely deserves to be gushed over on a romantic date since she’s worked so hard at the Olympic games! This would be a match made in heaven, especially since the both of them have their passion for their athletic careers in common, and probably so much more to chat about. Here’s to hoping these two really end up together!
