KANSAS CITY, Mo. — As the Chiefs wrapped up their selections in the 2021 NFL Draft, a fan who announced Kansas City's sixth-round pick also put a ring on it.
The Chiefs tweeted a video of Toby Kostner proposing to his girlfriend, Briana McAllister, with a ring pop shortly after announcing the selection of offensive lineman Trey Smith from Tennessee.
The ring pop is a nod to the Marvel movie "Deadpool" in which the titular actor played by Ryan Reynolds proposes to his girlfriend with a candy ring. The Chiefs fan referenced the proposal scene from "Deadpool."
McAllister, of course, said yes. She and Kostner live in the Cleveland area, according to a Chiefs spokesperson.
Reynolds responded to the video, making a joke that he though Kansas City was partial to Ant-Man. Paul Rudd, who is a Kansas City native, portrays Ant-Man in the Marvel movies.
I thought everyone in KC was an Ant-Man fan. Congrats to the happy couple!— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) May 1, 2021
"I thought everyone in KC was an Ant-Man fan. Congrats to the happy couple!" Reynolds said.
