Aly Raisman stuns the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year in Red, but also confirms reports she’s dating Colton Underwood.
The two walked the red carpet on Monday night at the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year Ceremony 2016 at Barclays Center of Brooklyn, New York.
“We happened to both be in Denver at the same time,” she says. “I was there for less than 12 hours, he was flying in for just a few days. it just ended up working perfectly.”
The couple looked “really happy together” inside the ceremony, a source tells PEOPLE. “He had his arm around her throughout the dinner and they laughed a lot.”
Raisman said that Underwood, a free agent, drove 90 minutes back and forth to meet her for their second and third dates. She has met Underwood’s family and will be seeing them again for the holidays.
The Olympian says she’s looking forward to the new year, hinting at future projects that she deems as “surreal.”
“I’m just looking forward to 2017,” she says. “I think it’s going to be an exciting year for everyone.”
