Samantha Steele and Christian Ponder have announced they’ll be getting married all over again in April.
The couple, who originally got hitched on December 17 in a private civil ceremony before a judge in Hudson, are planning a second wedding before friends and family.
Samantha Steele, ESPN‘s 24-year-old sideline reporter, will marry Vikings quarterback Ponder a second time in her hometown of Phoenix.
The loved-up pair revealed their second wedding plans during a Sports Illustrated podcast and took the oportunity to reminisce and josh about Ponder’s proposal method.
Recounting how he crafted his proposal from Christmas lights on his deck, 27-year-old Ponder joked:
“I used Christmas lights and I didn’t even use a question mark. It was a statement. She had no options.”
“I still don’t know if I technically accepted a proposal, because I don’t remember any question ever.”
Steele and Ponder’s wedding appears to be for the benefit of their family and friends; Steele was keen to point out she’s not currently pregnant.
Previously, Ponder has had to reassure fans that his relationship with Steele wasn’t a distraction from his duties as Vikings quarterback.
