Earlier this month, a hilarious video surfaced of a 6-year-old girl crying because she wants to marry Houston Texans defensive end JJ Watt. As you can understand after watching the video, fans didn’t know whether to laugh or cry while watching the young fan pout.
On Monday, Watt was made aware of the video and asked his Twitter followers for help in finding the little girl.
Does anyone happen to know this cute little girl? We have to find her and turn those tears into a smile.m.youtube.com/watch?v=938Scd…

Since the defensive star has over 200,000 followers, it didn’t take long to locate her. On Wednesday, Watt tweeted some photos of him proposing to the 6-year-old. He said she “said yes to being my pretend wife for the day.”
Awesome gesture from Watt, who gave the young fan a memory she’ll cherish for the rest of her life. NFL players have the ability to bring that kind of happiness to young kids with very little effort, but not all of them choose to do so. And as this Jets fan reminded us, it ain’t easy being a toddler and a sports fan.
