Adrian Peterson might not be interested in proclaiming himself an off-the-market bachelor in media, but the former Ashley Brown apparently is.

There’s now a woman on Twitter by the name of Ashley Peterson with the handle @MrsAshPeterson.

Her Twitter profile describes her as “Wife. Mother. God 1st” kind of person who splits time between “Houston/Minn.” That sure looks like a confirmation of marriage.

Her Twitter account features photos of her with the Viking running back. When they appeared publicly over the weekend in St. Paul, she was wearing a sizable rock on her ring finger, and he sported a ring as well.

How long has she been on Twitter as Ashley Peterson? Honestly, I do not know. They could have gotten married in 2013, for all I know. It was over the weekend that I started hearing that the All Day had gotten married. He must be happy about it. He has been introducing Ashley as his wife, even to people known to me.

Expect Peterson to share the details with a national media source, as is his style for the big stuff.

Neither Peterson is a stranger to national media exposure. He appeared in one of ESPN’s “Body Issue” magazines, and she stripped down for Playboy.

Ashley has mostly kept a low profile in the Twin Cities. However, she made a high-profile appearance with Peterson in September 2013, when she accompanied him to London for the Vikings game against Steelers.

In July 2013, she took their son, Adrian Peterson Jr., then 2, to Winter Park where photos were taken of the tyke playing football with Daddy. As noted in my Tuesday column, there’s been no big announcement on Twitter from @adrianpeterson. The online version of the Vikings media guide has not been updated.

But a girl’s not going to want to sit on news like this!
