Congratulations are in order!

Brittany Favre, daughter of NFL quarterback Brett Favre, announced on Twitter today that she got married to Patrick Valkenburg, saying, "So I got married this morning. Today has been pretty dang good."

Rather than having a large wedding, the couple chose to keep things small and get married at the Forrest County Courthouse.

Last year, Brittany gave birth to her son, Parker Brett, on April 2nd. (By the way, that made Brett Favre a first time grandpa! Double congrats!)

So why did Brittany and Patrick get married today? Turns out, today has some important significance for the family.  It was January 26th in 1997 when the Green Bay Packers, led by Brett Favre, won Super Bowl XXXI against the New England Patriots.

Congratulations, Brittany and Patrick!
