Olympic bronze medalist Warren Weir has engaged his long time girlfriend Alexan.
On Sunday the 200-metre athlete took to Instagram to share the news of his engagement to his longtime girlfriend Alexan with fans in a post saying “I pray that god somehow turns you back into one of my ribs so I won’t have to spend an entire day without you.”
The Jamaican sprinter popped the big question to his partner while vacationing in the Bahamas just 2 days before hurricane Dorian battered the islands.
The two had been dating seriously for years, with their relationship almost hitting the rocks at one point following a cheating scandal involving the Jamaican sprinter.
Since the announcement many fans took to social media to congratulate the couple, while others offered some harsh criticism towards the move.
“Breed a next girl while he was you and you still gonna marry him ? Must be nice,” one fan questioned, while another added “People don’t take marriages serious anymore, it’s all for show.”
