Jeff Rohrer, the former Dallas Cowboys linebacker who came out publicly as gay last week, married his boyfriend, skin-care expert Joshua Ross, in a ceremony in Hollywood on Sunday.

“We’re the one for each other,” Rohrer told People. “It’s unexpected, but it’s undeniable. And people can see it when they’re around us. We’re in a good place now, and I’m thankful to not have to live in the shadows.”

The two had met at the popular West Hollywood restaurant and bar Tortilla Republic when Rohrer was still very much in the closet.

The wedding took place at Wattles Mansion, at the foot of the popular hiking area Runyon Canyon in Los Angeles.

As far as we know, Rohrer is the first publicly out gay former NFL player to be married to another man.

Congratulations to Rohrer and Ross, and we hope you have many years of happiness together. You can follow them on Instagram @joshuaandjeffrey.
