HOUSTON – Football fans fell in love with J.J. Watt because he’s a beast on the field who leaves quarterbacks quaking in their cleats.

Women of all ages fell in love with the Houston Texans defensive end because he’s tall, strong and gorgeous.

Six-year-old Breanna was so smitten by Watt, she broke down in tears when she realized she‘s too young to marry him.

Her sobbing YouTube video has been seen by more than 90,000 people, including Watt himself.

He was so touched by her tears, he posted a link to the video on his Facebook page and asked fans for help finding the lovesick little girl.

"Does anyone happen to know this cute little girl? We have to find her and turn those tears into a smile," Watt posted.

The fans came through and Watt surprised Breanna and got down on one knee for a pretend "proposal." Breanna said yes, of course, and received a Blow Pop wedding ring, flowers and her very own #99 jersey. She also got a hug.

Lucky girl.

"Thanks to your help, we found 6-year-old Breanna and she said yes to being my pretend wife for the day...," Watt posted on Facebook Thursday.

No wonder we love him.
