“The Catch Of My Dreams” Sterling Shepard Pops The Question To Model Chanel Iman
We’re right smack in the middle of cuffing season and New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard is taking full advantage of the opportunity. The 24-year-old recently asked his girlfriend of one year, former Victoria’s Secret model, Chanel Iman, to marry him and she shared the moment with all of her 1.4 million Instagram followers.
Shepard also shared the same pic on social media with the caption:
“The catch of my dreams…can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you!”
E! News reports the couple met at Victor Cruz’s birthday party last November. The model had worked with Cruz during several photo shoots and Shepard was a former teammate. In August, the two appeared in the campaign for New Era’s Official NFL Sideline Collection.
In 2014, it was rumored that the Victoria’s Secret Angel was engaged to rapper A$AP Rocky, the couple ultimately called it quits several months later, though their engagement was never confirmed.
An inside source tells E! that the player popped the question to Iman at the couple’s New Jersey home on Friday for her 27th birthday. According to the source, Shepard chose a rose gold ring with a round diamond. The whole proposal was also a “complete surprise” and apparently Shepard told his new fiancée that they were just going to go to dinner and then he surprised her yet again when he brought her to Spin Ping Pong NYC where all her friends and family were waiting. Guests included Iman’s model friends as well as Shepard’s teammates including Odell Beckham Jr.. In addition, the insider also says that the pair toasted their engagement with limited-edition Moet & Chandon Nectar Imperial Rose x Public School magnums of Champagne.
Is it me or do the kids move awfully fast these days? Either way, we wish the pair a beautiful engagement and happy wedding planning.
