Congrats are in order for Terrell Owens! According to TMZ, the former NFL wide receiver is getting married to girlfriend Rachel Snider, a 33-year old postal worker from Texas. The site reports that the Alabama-born athlete has obtained a marriage license in Los Angeles. Sounds like there are wedding bells in the near future!

Upon further inspection of Rachel’s Twitter account, it sounds like this story is totally true, because she is responding to shade that’s been thrown in her general direction. “Whew a lot of stones being thrown my way today, good think I can catch! I hope you all have a blessed day,” she tweeted today, January 10.

As you know, T.O. has four babies by four different baby mamas, none of which are from Rachel. And while we don’t know exactly how these two lovebirds met, we do know that it wasn’t on the set of Terrell’s 2009 VH1 reality show, The T.O. Show. Aw, shucks!

TMZ reports that the marriage license expires on April 8, so Terrell and Rachel will have to exchange vows before then if they don’t want to apply for another one.

The couple has been relatively hush-hush about their relationship, though they have been pretty adorable on social media lately. When T.O. tweeted about New Year’s resolutions, Rachel responded, “@terrellowens to make sure you do not buy those batman shoes.” This one sounds like a keeper, Terrell.
