Andrew Luck is a married man. The Indianapolis Colts quarterback married Stanford sweetheart Nicole Pechanec this weekend in Prague, according to the IndyStar.

Luck and Pechanec both first met at Stanford University while majoring in architectural design. Like her new husband, Pechanec is also an athlete and a former competitive gymnast who was previously the captain of Stanford’s team. She is still working in the sports field as a producer for major networks.

Not much is otherwise known about Luck’s relatively low-key romance with Pechanec, except that she has been a steady source of support especially after a shoulder injury prevented him from playing in the 2017 season.

“Honestly, though, I wouldn’t have gotten through it if not for Nicole,” Luck remarked in the John Feinstein-authored book Quarterback. “It isn’t just that she was willing to do anything she could to help me. It’s that she’s tough. She knows what training is like, what it’s like to feel pain, and what it’s like to have to work really hard. There’s no way I get through those two months without her.”
