On a day when the Royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was taking place across the pond, Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston proposed marriage to his long-time girlfriend Breion Allen Saturday in New York City.
She said yes.
The proposal took place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The engagement was announced Sunday on Winston's Instagram account and Twitter. Allen is expecting the couple's first child, a boy, in early July.
Winston referenced the victory formation by taking a knee in front of Allen for the proposal. He posted the following message to Allen on Instagram:
Jaboowins3: One of the best plays in football just turned into one of the best plays of my life! You've been with me through everything you could ever imagine but never wavered! Your perseverance and love has taught me how to prioritize, empathize and focus on what truly matters. That's why I had to put your love on TOP! I love you Breezi Boo! #Highschoolsweetheart #MrsWinston #Breionce #boutdamntime
On her Instagram account, Allen wrote, "Well it's about damn time @jboowins3. #We'sGettinMarried.
Winston, 24, and Allen have been together since long before his Bucs days. They both went to Birmingham-area high schools, and she played basketball at Rice.
Winston, the first overall pick of the Bucs in 2015, is entering his fourth NFL season. The couple live in Odessa.
