Sometimes it's surprising to see which celebrities are big sports fans. (Seriously, Justin Bieber?) But it should come as a shock to no one that singer Jordin Sparks loves football. Her father, Phillippi, played nine NFL seasons with the Giants and Cowboys. Her Twitter bio reads, "Singer/Songwriter/Actress/Host/NFL Fanatic."

Even less fanatical fans recognize that Steelers running back Le'Veon had a monster game on Monday night against the Titans (204 yards and a touchdown on 33 carries). Sparks was one of many fans gushing about Bell's performance on Twitter.

Bell took notice, even though Sparks didn't tag him in her tweets. Looks like someone might have a little crush.

Much like his performance on the field, Bell's emoji game is strong.
