It's good to be Osi Umenyiora.

One year ago, the New York Giants defensive end was celebrating his second Super Bowl ring when he was introduced to Leila Lopes, aka Miss Universe 2011, during New York City's Fashion Week. The two started dating shortly afterward and it was reported by the New York Post on Tuesday that Umenyiora recently popped the question. Lopes said "yes" to the franchise-tag request and they're planning for a wedding sometime in 2014.

The 26-year-old Lopes hails from Angola while the 31-year-old Umenyiora was born in London before moving to Nigeria and then the United States. It's not too much of a stretch to say these two are in line to produce some pretty good-looking Super Bowl winners and/or beauty queens whenever they get around to having children.

Here's a picture of the happy couple that Umenyiora recently tweeted from Europe:
