December 19, 2012 — 3:06pm
Christian Ponder and ESPN's Samantha Steele were married Monday in a civil ceremony in Hudson, Wis., according to a report posted late Tuesday night on the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram web site.
According to the Leader-Telegram: "Ponder, 24, and Steele, who turned 27 last week, were married by Court Commissioner Stephen Dunlap."
Ponder let news of the couple's engagement slip out last month, with the progression from girlfriend to fiancee to spouse coming rather quickly, as chronicled by CJ a couple of weeks back, including some details about the ring purchase in St. Louis Park.
Here's the full report from the Eau Claire website.
