The injured quarterback for the Super Bowl-winning Philadelphia Eagles recently got engaged at a famous Kentucky spot.

Carson Wentz proposed to his girlfriend, Maddie Oberg, at CastlePost, also known as Kentucky Castle. Oberg said yes, continuing a week to remember for the 25-year-old Eagles quarterback.

Oberg is from the Lexington area.

“She said YES! And now Maddie and I both got us a ring,” Wentz said in a tweet, posted early Tuesday afternoon. “Can’t wait to marry my best friend! God is doing some amazing things and I can’t thank him enough.”

Although the photos were posted just after the team won the Super Bowl, it's unclear if the engagement occurred shortly before or after the game.

In a Facebook post, CastlePost said it was proud to be a part of their story.

CastlePost owner Matt Dawson said he cannot talk about hotel guests, but congratulated the happy couple.

“He’s an incredible person and we are excited for Carson and Maddie and their new life together,” he said.

Wentz was among the favorites to win the NFL MVP last season until he tore his ACL against the Rams late in the season. His backup, Nick Foles, led the Eagles to their first ever Super Bowl victory on Sunday.

Thousands of Philadelphia Eagles fans took to the streets of Philadelphia to celebrate their Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday, February 4, 2018. There was a lot of climbing going on: some scaled the gates of Philadelphia
