Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman and tight end Colton Underwood are officially an item.
The athletic duo revealed their status as they hit the red carpet for Sports Illustrated’s Sportsperson of the Year 2016 ceremony at the Barclays Center in New York on Monday.
The 24-year-old football player, who is currently a free agent, asked out the 22-year-old Olympian via social media five months ago. Raisman accepted the invitation and has been with Underwood since August, according to People.
“We happened to both be in Denver at the same time,” Raisman told the magazine. “I was there for less than 12 hours, he was flying in for just a few days. It just ended up working perfectly.”
See? There is hope! Don’t close your DMs just yet, folks social media could make 2017 a great year for your love life.
