Gentlemen, take note: That Jay Cutler is a real romantic. And just in case you needed a heartwarming tale to get you into the Valentine’s Day spirit, this is the true story of how he proposed to his fiancé, reality star Kristin Cavallari.

The Chicago Bears quarterback and former star of MTV’s “The Hills” were engaged back in 2011, but they broke off the engagement shortly after, definitely not because he’s kind of a jerk. But Cutler won her back thusly, as Cavallari explained to E! News:

“It was so silly,” she said. “I was in the airport, leaving Chicago. We had just spent however many days together and we were texting and somehow it came up, like ‘Oh, shall we get married?’ We’re like, ‘Yeah, okay.’”

“Then he sent my ring in the mail,” Cavallari continued. “So I actually had my ring sitting at home for a couple of weeks before I put it on.”

Who says romance is dead? What better way to show your eternal love for someone than slipping a diamond ring in a first-class envelope, sticking a stamp on it and shoving it in the mailbox.

The two are now proud parents to a six-month-old son, Camden, who will hopefully inherent his father’s chivalrous nature.
