Los Angeles Angels pitcher and car racing enthusiast C.J. Wilson is now engaged to Brazilian supermodel Lisalla Montenegro after proposing to her this Wednesday. Just in the last few weeks he’s brought his A-game with a new shampoo commercial, a ridiculously smooth cap-grab of a foul ball, and his first Grand-Am road race win with the team he owns back in Austin, TX. We hope it’s something in the water, and we hope he will share some with the rest of us soon.
And to add to his recent accomplishments he is now engaged to a supermodel. Lisalla Montenegro is a 25-year-old model from Goias, Brazil who was discovered after winning the Miss Goias title. She moved to the United States in 2010 after signing a contract with Maybelline New York. She quickly hit supermodel status and has walked the runway for Hermes, Michael Kors, Armani, and Kenzo.
It looks like Wilson went all out picking out the perfect engagement ring for his supermodel fiancé as well. After the proposal Montenegro happily tweeted a picture for all to see.
It is suspected that the couple has been dating for only a year, and Wilson could easily afford the ring after signing a five-year contract with the Angels just two years ago for $77.5 million bucks. That’s a lot of bucks. Before joining the Angels Wilson pitched for the Texas Rangers.
