Love is a healthy thing, no wonder it gets people excited every time. A former American footballer, Christopher Ogbonnaya, is engaged to his girlfriend, Jeanine Juliano.
The Nigerian-American sportsman made the engagement known on Instagram page as he shared photos of the private ceremony that shows him proposing and kissing his heartthrob.
He captioned the pictures with an emphatic YES. It should be noted that Ogbannaya’s father is Nigerian. The 33-year-old man once played for the University of Texas.
From there, he proceeded to play for Carolina Panthers, New York Giants, Cleveland Browns, and Houston Texans.
On June 19, 2015, however, he tendered his retirement from American football. While in school, he maintained a good GPA of 3.5. Little wonder he was awarded the Crusader of the Year, an honour that recognised his academic and athletic performances.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Amy and Justin Pounders met on a match-making site, and only realised they had known each other 30 years ago.
Unknown to both them, they were preschool sweetheart. Their realisation started when Justin told Amy how he came to have the scar above one of his eyes, mentioning the school he was in when he fell off monkey bars.
The name of the school set Amy recalling old memories when she too discovered she had attended the same school as a child at the time he did.
The two’s suspicion that they were childhood sweethearts was confirmed eight months later when Justin’s mother brought out the photo the two had taken together as kids.
“Our hearts found a connection at 3 years old very innocently, but it was enough to recognize it again 30 years later,” Amy said.
The two took a step further and got married in their hometown where 200 guests were present to witness the occasion.
