Team USA gymnast and gold medalist Aly Raisman confirmed she’s dating Oakland Raiders tight end Colton Underwood.

They’ve kept it under wraps for five months, but Underwood made his red carpet debut with Raisman as they attended the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year Ceremony 2016, which was held at Barclays Center.

“(We) kept it quiet for a while,” Raisman told People.

“We happened to both be in Denver at the same time,” Raisman told the magazine. “I was there for less than 12 hours, he was flying in for just a few days. It just ended up working perfectly.”

Here’s a video of how it all started. They first met on social media when Raisman agreed to go on a double date with Underwood and his teammate Andrew East, who is married to fellow Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson.
