    This is just the cutest. 

    After (a very) short time dating, ESPN reporter Samantha Steele and Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder have decided to make it official, E! News has learned.

    Hey, when you know, you know.

    Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans is married!

    "Spoke to ESPN's @Samantha_Steele today. She confirms she is engaged to @VikingsFootball quarterback Christian Ponder," Sports Illustrated reporter Richard Deitsch tweeted.

    According to Total Frat Move, who broke the engagement news, the Vikings QB reportedly popped the question with Christmas lights that read "Marry Me" and one giant sparkler.

    Ponder confirmed that he and the beautiful blonde were dating in October (yeah, we said it was a short time!), when a fan asked if the rumors were true, "Is @cponder7 & @Samantha_Steele dating? If not, they should. #Noles." The NFL star responded, "actually yes they are."

    And the rest was history.

    Congratulations!
