Katherine Webb and AJ McCarron EngagedBy: Daryl Nelson - March 29, 2014
Ever since her image was shown all across America during the 2013 B.C.S. National Championship Game, Katherine Webb became instantly famous, and quickly received tons of attention from male fans.
But today those male fans are probably a little disappointed, because Webb and her boyfriend AJ McCarron, the former quarterback for the University of Alabama, are now engaged. Webb shared the news via her Instagram account.
“WE’RE ENGAGEDDD,” wrote Webb, who won the 2012 Miss Alabama pageant. She also competed in several other pageants, including Miss USA 2012, where she finished in the top 10.
Webb also revealed that McCarron chose the ring on his own and had absolutely no help at all. “He designed it himself,” wrote the 5’11” beauty.
In a 2013 interview with Vanity Fair, Webb spoke a little bit about instantly becoming famous after her image was shown during the B.C.S. Championship Game. She says due to all the pageants in her life, it’s easy for her to deal with that kind of attention and it doesn’t bother her at all.
“Before all this happened, I spent a lot of time doing modeling as well as pageants and so I’ve been trained on how to handle that type of attention,” said Webb. “My first time being on national television was at the B.C.S. National Championship Game. I didn’t know they were going to show me on national television, so there I was wearing my No.10 jersey and my jeans.”
In addition, Webb–who was also a contestant on the reality competition Splash–said she had no idea that people would think she looked so good at the B.C.S. game, because she was dressed so casually.
Additionally, the former beauty contestant said being McCarron’s girlfriend has trained her to be in the spotlight a little bit, so it wasn’t a total adjustment when she became famous.
“Yeah, well, I figured if I was going to dress casual with jeans and a jersey, I could at least put makeup on and do my hair,” she said about being on TV for the first time. “Plus, I knew that people already knew who I was as far as me dating A.J. A lot of people asked to take pictures and things like that. I kind of already made it a point to look nice.”
