Let’s start with the backstory.
Earlier this month, a video surfaced of a young fan crying because she couldn’t marry the Texans’ star defensive end, who, in the past, admitted to having trouble finding a girlfriend.
Adorably, she thought she could fill the void.
In 18 days, the video has received close to 60,000 hits. On Monday, it finally reached Watt, who set out to locate 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…

Two days later, through the magic of social media, Watt tracked down and paid 6-year-old Breanna a visit. If that wasn’t cool enough, he even “proposed” to her and documented the entire event.
Thanks to your help, we found 6-year-old Breanna and she said yes to being my pretend wife for the day… twitter.com/JJWatt/status/…

While the nuptials are only good for one day, the happiness he bestowed upon Breanna will last a lifetime.
