MJ Acosta's Intriguing Love Life That Began Unexpectedly!

NFL Network analyst MJ Acosta had never thought she would receive one of the most beautiful presents on Christmas Day around 2013. 

Her love story with her husband is similar to some romantic movies filled with ups and downs but full of incredible bonds, happiness, and alluring first meet. 

How Did MJ Meet Her Love?

While MJ was enjoying a basketball game near her hometown on Christmas of 2013, she encountered her future husband for the first time. Little did she know her beau would be popping a wedding ring in the same venue seven years later.

MJ's super romantic partner swept her off her feet with his surprise proposal. While her love life was blossoming, her career was also at its peak.

Covering NFL Super Bowl week for a sports-lover like MJ was a dream career for her as she always wanted to be a part of the NFL. So regarding her career and love life, MJ stated, as reported by The Knot

"It also marked a pivotal career marker since the Super Bowl was hosted in Miami (my hometown and the place where we met). David proposed the night before the Super Bowl in front of the place where we first met. It was the epitome of a full-circle moment in so many ways."

After the proposal began the couple's big wedding planning. Following the plan, the couple decided to tie a knot in 2020.

But the wedding was one of the most challenging phases because of the COVID-19. The couple, however, managed to get married on 27 August 2020.

Beautiful bride in a long white gown and the charming groom in the navy blue coat, their appearance in the wedding was all about love, love, and love! Then later, the pair exchanged their vows and committed to the togetherness of a lifetime.

The happy couple chose Le Blanc Spa Resort in Los Cabos, Mexico. As seen in MJ's wedding picture, the beautiful outdoor ceremony seemed magical as the serene evening sky made for their wedding backdrop as they shared their love-filled vows.

Since her surreal wedding post, her followers are seemingly more intrigued to learn about the NFL analyst's husband.
