Brittany Favre Married Patrick Valkenburg (PHOTOS)

Brittany Favre announced on Twitter today that she got married.  The nearly 22-year-old daughter of veteran NFL quarterback Brett Favre made news last year when she made him a grandfather by giving birth to a son Parker Brett on April 2, 2010.

The small family affair reportedly took place at Forrest County Courthouse.

Brittany tweeted: "So I got married this morning.  Today has been pretty dang good."  She and her fiance Patrick Alan Valkenburg recently moved into a new home and she joked on January 23rd: "Number of times Patrick and I have accidentally set off our alarm in the new house: 4."

In the past few weeks she has also made references about starting new classes, and thoughts that the new home that she and Patrick have been sharing might be haunted.

So why did the girl from Kiln, Mississippi choose to get married on a Wednesday?  The date January 26th has significance for the young woman.  It was that day in 1997 that the Green Bay Packers, led by Brett Favre, won Super Bowl XXXI against the New England Patriots by a score of 35 -21.

Seems like a good enough reason to us.  Congrats to Brittany and Patrick!
