Aly Raisman has said yes to going on a date with Oakland Raiders tight end Colton Underwood!
The 24-year-old NFL player asked the 22-year-old U.S. Olympic gymnast if she would like to double date with him and his teammate Andrew East, who married retired U.S. Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson back in April.
Colton‘s proposal came in form of a video (via Yahoo Sports) telling Aly that if she is “ever in San Jose and want to go on a double date with me and Andrew and Shawn, let me know.”
Aly then remarked, “They’ve actually told me about him before – he’s very cute. Yeah, I would go on a date with him.”
Following Colton‘s proposal, Aly took to Twitter to reach out to Colton personally, writing, “@Colt3FIVE thanks for the sweet video…. Looking forward to meeting you :).”
Colton then responded by tweeting back, “”Anytime! Looking forward to meeting you too. Safe travels back, see you soon!”
Aly added (in the video), “I’ve never done a long-distance relationship before, so I can’t really say, but obviously it’s more convenient if they’re closer to you.”
DO YOU THINK Aly and Colton would make a cute couple?
@Colt3FIVE thanks for the sweet video…. looking forward to meeting you :)
