Back in 2013, rumors ran wild about NFL safety Kerry Rhodes and his sexuality. Basically, people thought he was blacklisted from the league — despite being a pretty productive player — because no one knew if he was gay or not. BC Joe ran a story about Rhodes and his assistant, but he denied the allegations to TMZ.
Three years later, however, it looks like we can officially move past that because Rhodes popped the question to his girlfriend, actress Nicky Whelan.
“I walked into our lounge Friday evening and he was on his knee with a beautiful box in his hands,” the bride-to-be tells PEOPLE. “I saw the sparkle coming out of the box, so pure and perfect and simple. And very unexpected.”
He’s the one … #engaged @kerryrhodes
We are guessing most of you guys might remember Nicky as the smoking hot blonde in the movie Hall Pass.
