Carson Wentz is fully recovered after tearing his ACL and is back as the lead quarterback of the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles.
After his team earned that coveted title last season, Wentz married Madison “Maddie” Oberg. It is believed that the two started dating sometime in 2017, as Oberg made her debut appearance on Wentz’s Instagram account in December, just after he had surgery.
“Surgery [check]. The comeback officially begins now! The Lord truly blessed me with this beautiful young lady to walk by my side and support me through all of this,” Wentz captioned a photo of him and Oberg, taken from his hospital bed.
Just after the Eagles won Super Bowl LII, Wentz popped the question, and Oberg said “yes!” The two married five months later.
