ENGAGED! Giants Baller Osi Umenyiora & Miss Universe Leila Lopes!
Well that was quick! NY Giants champ Osi Umenyiora popped the question to his girlfriend of only 5 months, Miss Universe 2011 Leila Lopes. Deets and pics inside...
The Nigerian footballer Osi took his girlfriend Leila on a European vacation last week, along with his brother Okwi and his wife (pictured below as Osi & Leila get kissy in the shadows), jetting from NYC to Paris, Rome, Monaco and more.
And when the foursome were on a sight seeing excursion in Monaco, the 31-year-old Defensive End asked the 26-year-old Angolan beauty queen to marry him. And the twosome posted some cute pics...likely taken right before he popped the question...with Osi saying, "My beautiful fiancée Leila."
And the two have something in common: Osi was born in London, and Leila lived and studied in England and participated in Miss Angola UK back in 2010. Leila won the title, giving her the opportunity to represent the British Angolan community in Miss Angola 2011.
We confirmed the engagement with a source close to the couple who revealed Osi indeed proposed three days ago. The twosome met for the first time at NY Fashion Week this past September.
When a man knows, he knows.
Congrats to the couple!
P.S. The Newark Star Ledger reported last week that Osi Umenyiora's contract with the Giants voided on Thursday, Feb. 7th, ending his tenure there technically. But there's still a chance he could sign a new contract there, or he may have to move on elsewhere.
