Congratulations are in order for Saints Head Coach Sean Payton and girlfriend Skylene Montgomery.  Payton surprised Montgomery in a French Quarter restaurant, the Longway Tavern, inside of the New Orleans French Quarter District. WDSU reported the proposal on Friday night.  Montgomery accompanied Payton to the private event to celebrate Saints' owner Gayle Benson and late husband Tom Benson’s 15th wedding anniversary. However, Payton “popped the question” to Montgomery during a toast and she accepted.

Local Saints Beat Reporter Amie Just of the Advocate/ wrote in a tweet:

This will be Payton's second marriage.  He was previously married to Beth Shuey from 1992–2014.   The former couple had two children, Meghan and Connor Payton.  

Montgomery is the former 2008 Miss West Virginia and was in the 2008 Miss USA Pageant
