This is how their romance bloomed. It was social media that played a great role in building their relationship.
As per the second and third dates, Aly told the magazine that Colton drove ninety minutes back and forth just to see her.
Aly believes that their relationship was the play of fate. She says that it happened in the first place because of the chance favoring both of their lives.
“We happened to both be in Denver at the same time,” she said.
She further added,
“I was there for less than 12 hours; he was flying in for just a few days. It just ended up working perfectly.”

“I’m just looking forward to 2017,” Raisman told. “I think it’s going to be an exciting year for everyone.”
We hope nothing goes wrong with their relationship and hopefully Aly the current girlfriend becomes a wife soon in the coming future.#NFL #Raisman
