Over the weekend, model Chanel Iman toasted to her 27th birthday and to her engagement to New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard. The professional football player got down on one knee and popped the question to the former Victoria's Secret model amongst a sea of candles with the beautiful New York skyline in the background. The couple captured the romantic moment and shared it on Instagram (above) to announce their engagement on Saturday night.
In somewhat of a whirlwind romance, Iman and Shepard first met last November at a mutual friend's party and according to People, this down-to-earth, rather good looking pair have had a shared love for the Cheesecake Factory and for one another ever since. From the looks of Iman's Instagram, she's become quite the sideline cheerleader for the Giants, giving the Gisele Bundchen Patriots clan a run for its money.
During the candle-lit proposal, Iman wore athleisure, which was made extra fabulous by a white fur coat. As of now, we can only fantasize about what the long-legged model will wear on her big day, but one things for sure: The pair's abundance of love for one another and sporty chic styles will be on full display. Congratulations to the happy couple!
