UPDATE: All the on again, off again rumors can be put to bed, as Matt Forte married his girlfriend Danielle Daniels during August of 2011. The couple exchanged vows in a quiet ceremony attended mainly by friends and close family.
The two began dating in 2008. They got engaged in May, 2010 when Matt proposed at the Trump International Hotel in New York City during a promotional appearance. In September, 2010, rumors surfaced that Matt revealed to Danielle that he had cheated on her with an ex girlfriend, who also happened to be 7 months pregnant with his child. Danielle called off the engagement.
Danielle is a full-time student at Columbia University, while also holding down a job at the Public Relations firm of Daniels Entertainment Group.
This is one family man that isn’t looking to shy away from the public eye. After learning of the breakup, Danielle’s father said the following:
“My wife and I feel very bad for our daughter and for Matt, but by the same token, what is most important for me now is to help my daughter and wife heal. And these athletes have to be held accountable for their actions whether it is a Tiger Woods or a Matt Forte.”
