It’s not every day you get married, and it’s not every day you get to meet your favorite sports star. But for a newly wedded couple, these two dream occasions came true thanks to a big-hearted gesture by Texans star defensive player, JJ Watt.
The Poe’s, who celebrated their wedding at The Woodlands Resort, were enamored by their groom’s cake designed to look like JJ Watt’s number 99 Texans jersey, and with just one tweet, a photo of the specialty cake went viral. The photo caught the attention of Watt himself. Watt learned Nathan Poe worked on a rig in the Gulf so he decided to tape a message with Nathan’s wife to thank Poe for including him in their special day.
According to KTRK-TV, Watt’s message says, “I'm here with your new wife and I just want to say congratulations and thank you so much for including me. People sent me the pictures and I was very touched and I was happy I could be a part of your wedding. So I'm sorry I missed you. I hope all is well and I can't wait until you return home safely back to your new wife.”
