J.P. Arencibia is engaged to Kimberly Perry. The Blue Jays’ catcher proposed to The Band Perry lead singer on Monday. The couple has been together for a year and a half. Arencibia arrived to Tennessee early and gave Perry the proposal she had dreamed of under a tree at her family’s Greeneville home. From the Tennessean:
Perry thought her family was meeting to go to dinner, but when they called her to come outside, Arencibia was standing under the oak tree.
“I saw that and I thought, ‘This is really happening,’ ” she said.
Her mother sent her back in the house to put on her favorite pink dress — one that Perry had previously said that if she were to get engaged, that was what she wanted to wear. When Perry got to the room she found her dress, a letter from her family and a bracelet that her grandfather and given her grandmother “way back in the day” when they started dating.
Arencibia first saw Perry in her band’s video for the song, “If I Die Young,” and “had this moment where he felt like that was going to be a part of his future.”
