Who says you can’t find love online? One of this year‘s Olympic medal winners, Aly Raisman had a lot of speculation surrounding her dating life. Her celebrity star rose when it was announced that she would be part of Team USA’s gymnastics team, and since her stint on Dancing With the Stars, there has been so much gossip surrounding the gymnast’s dating life, especially when Raiders player Colton Underwood used social media in August to ask his not-so-secret crush out on a date.
Just after the closing ceremonies, Sports Illustrated put together the above mentioned video called “How to date Aly Raisman.” In it, the Olympian was asked a series of questions and paired, hypothetically, with various athletes. Toward the end of the video, a short pop-up appeared and surprised Raisman. It’s Oakland Raiders footballer Colton Underwood, asking Raisman out on a date. The question was adorable, and it left Raisman speechless.
Fast forward to last night’s Sports Illustrated’s Sportsperson of the Year awards, and who happens to show up arm in arm? You guessed it, Aly Raisman and her new boyfriend Colton Underwood. The couple looks adorable together and are all smiles announcing their official relationship.
Raisman confirmed that the couple have been dating since the VMA’s way back in August (when he made his video!), and that she’ll be spending the holidays with his family. We are loving how adorable this couple is — they give us major hope that online dating isn’t just a waste of our time.
