With a mutual love for football binding them together, Washington Redskins defensive lineman Chris Baker and fiance, Jamila, chose FedExField as the spot for their engagement photos.

“My fiance is really a good planner and football is really a big part of our lives,” Baker said. “We kind of met through football and sports. She works for ESPN, and obviously I play in the NFL. So we thought that would be a good site to capture us together, and that’s where we living at now in DC, so it captured a lot.”

The two met in 2009 according to Essence.com:

“We met after the 2009 NFL season once Chris returned to Connecticut,” Jamila recalls. “On our first date, he constantly told me how beautiful I looked and he enjoyed the way we instantly connected. Later on during the date, he told me I would one day become his wife. He knew exactly what he wanted!”

While Baker’s usually pumping up the Redskins crowd at FedExField with his dance moves and strong play, on this particular day, he was alone with Jamila in an empty stadium.

It was “a fun and unique” moment for the third-year Hampton product.

“It was fun, just me and her there and being able to take whatever pictures we wanted,” Baker said. “We had the whole stadium to ourselves on the off day, so it was a fun and good experience.”
