Every football players dream is to someday play in the Super Bowl and hopefully win the big game, but for Carson Wentz, that dream was cut short after he tore his ACL and needed surgery. Carson is the lead QB for the Philadelphia Eagles and he lead his team through an amazing season which helped them get to the Super Bowl. Unfortunately for the big game, he had to sit on the sidelines because he is still recovering from his surgery back in December.
This might be the biggest week of his life so far. Only a few days after his team won the Super Bowl Carson Wentz just made another shocking announcement.
According to Hollywood Life, Carson Wentz is engaged! The 25-year-old [currently] injured Philadelphia Eagles quarterback proposed to his girlfriend, Madison “Maddie” Oberg on February 6! “She said YES!” Wentz wrote on both Instagram and Twitter, accompanied by numerous engagement photos. “And now Maddie and I both got us a ring! Can’t wait to marry my best friend! God is doing some amazing things and I can’t thank him enough,” he continued.
Wentz proposed on what appears to be a rooftop venue with a castle structure. String lights hung above the couple, as Wentz was surrounded by candles, while down on one knee. He shared touching photos from the proposal, where Oberg showed off her stunning, circular diamond, as the pair celebrated their engagement. After “she said yes!” Wentz lifted Oberg in his arms as they shared a sweet hug together.
The NFL pro’s proposal came after he scored a ring of his own when the Philadelphia Eagles beat the reigning champs, the New England Patriots, in Super Bowl 52, [41-33]. Wentz was sidelined for the big game, after leading the Eagles through a star season, with a torn ACL in his left knee. Oberg was by his side during his December 2017, surgery.
It’s unclear when Wentz and Oberg began dating, although reports claim they were first linked in early 2017. Oberg makes frequent cameos on Wentz’s social media and appears to not have any social accounts of her own. Wentz made their relationship Instagram official in December 2017, when he posted a photo of Oberg spending the holidays with him.
Oberg reportedly studied elementary education at Missouri Southern State University. She also accompanied Wentz on a mission trip to Haiti in 2017, according to reports.
Congratulations to the happy couple! What an amazing and unforgettable week for these two!
