Something to cheer about! Katherine Webb is engaged to longtime boyfriend AJ McCarron. The former Miss Alabama USA turned model announced the exciting news via Twitter on Friday, March 28.
“WE’RE ENGAGEDDD!!! @10AJMcCarron,” the 24-year-old wrote. The brunette stunner shared an adorable picture of the couple embracing. In a second snapshot, Webb showed off her gorgeous new diamond ring. “He designed it himself,” she gushed.
Webb first became a household name when ESPN commentator Brent Musburger spotted her in the crowd during the college football Allstate Sugar Bowl back in January 2013. At the time, Webb looked nervous while watching quarterback McCarron and his Crimson Tide team take on the Oklahoma Sooners. “You quarterbacks get all the good-looking women,” Musburger joked with his booth co-host, former quarterback Kirk Herbstreit.
Musberger later apologized, but the free publicity clearly has done wonders for Webb. The model made her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue debut the following month in a sexy bikini bottom photo shoot.
Webb and 23-year-old McCarron — who is headed to the NFL draft in May — began dating in 2012.
