Lisalla Montenegro engaged to Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson
C.J. Wilson, a pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels, has quite a bit to celebrate. He popped the big question to his girlfriend, Brazilian supermodel Lisalla Montenegro, on May 8 and she said yes. Montenegro tweeted a photo of the giant rock on her finger, writing, "I literally can't have imagined a more perfect proposal."
Wilson can certainly afford the big diamond he presented to his fiancee, as he's in the middle of a $77.5 million contract with the Angels. When asked by Sports Illustrated to list the best and worst reasons to be dating a supermodel, Wilson had some fun with his ideas. Among the best reasons he says is "She looks way better in any baseball-related clothing than I do." As for the worst reasons, Wilson cites "Your teammates asking you if your supermodel girlfriend has any supermodel friends who would date them."
No word on a possible wedding date, but congratulations to the pair on their engagement. To celebrate, check out the video below of Wilson making one of the greatest foul ball catches of all time.
