Who Dat Ringing Wedding Bells? 📯💍🏉⚜️ Saints Head Coach Sean Payton and girlfriend Skylene Montgomery are engaged! 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.
“Skylene, I love you!” Payton said as a jam-packed crowd surrounded the couple. He then asked the former Miss West Virginia USA to marry him.
