As millions of aspiring gymnasts watched the U.S. women’s gymnastics team bring home the gold at the 2012 Summer Olympics, it probably did not go unnoticed by fans that the Fierce Five are also total cutie-pies.
Aly Raisman received quite the offer when she was signing autographs at an Office Depot in Los Angeles on Friday (Aug. 24). People reports that a young man asked for Aly’s hand in marriage — with a Ring Pop. She did not accept, but laughed and said she’ll “take the Ring Pop.”
It is most likely not the last marriage proposal the 18-year-old gymnast will receive in the wake of the Olympics.
Another young fan told Raisman that she had won a gold medal on her floor exercise during a competition and Raisman responded, “Me too! High five!”
After signing autographs, Raisman helped children from a local charity shop for back-to-school supplies. Then Saturday (Aug. 15), Aly jetted off to Boston to throw out the first pitch for the Boston Red Sox game against the Kansas City Royals (pictured above).
