Robert Griffin III marries fiancée Rebecca Liddicoat! The couple tied the knot in a romantic ceremony in Denver, Colorado last Saturday. The Washington Redskins star tweeted everything pretty succinctly. "The easiest way to say It......BIG DAY!"
The couple has been dating since 2010 after meeting at Baylor University where they both attended college. "When I started dating him, I realized he was really good," Liddicoat said to NFL.com. "I wished he got more attention. It was like, 'He goes to Baylor, so he's not getting attention.' And then when he finally did a little bit in the season after, he got injured. Then this past year, it just went crazy and I was just so happy that he finally was getting the attention he deserved and so was Baylor. We went from thinking, 'Oh yeah, he could get drafted' to 'Wow, he's going to go really high.' It kinda still is just sinking in."
Griffin III (or RGIII) even proposed to Liddicoat at Baylor University. "[RGIII] told me he wanted a candlelight-type of ceremony," Griffin III's mom had said about his romantic proposal to Liddicoat. "He wrote a song. Yes, he sings and he writes music - he doesn't know how to write 'music' music but he writes lyrics and he can come up with a melody. He wrote a song for her. He had one of his teammates go up there [to a camera perch at the top of the indoor facility] and he played the guitar."
Baylor University tweeted their congratulations to Griffin III and Liddicoat. "Congratulations to you, @RGIII, and Rebecca! Have a wonderful and blessed wedding day!" While Griffin III's former Baylor teammate Ike Williams tweeted, "Congratulations To My Brother @RGIII On Tying The Knott It Was Truly An Honor To Be One Of Your Best Man I Love You Bro" Baylor's coach Art Briles also tweeted from the Griffin III wedding. "NFL Rookie of the Year - Heisman Trophy Winner - most importantly Baylor QB. RG3's wedding!"
Griffin III is taking a social media break to enjoy his new wife. The NFL star posted on his Facebook, "Well brohams and brohamettes, I'm out. Enjoy the music video posted to my Facebook page and talk to you guys in a week" Congrats to the happy couple!
