Mani Te’o is a former American football linebacker. He was once a Notre Dame star and one of the rising sportspersons in the country. Then one day, something really unfortunate happened. It came to light that someone catfished Te’o and left him devastated after the ugly affair came to light. For a long time, he believed that his girlfriend of many years, a girl named Lennay Kekua, had recently died of leukemia. However, police later conducted an investigation and found out that nobody called Kekua ever existed. It was all a hoax.
However, Te’o has since moved on to find love, true love, in other pastures. We all need someone we trust wholeheartedly to confide in once we suffer a great tragedy. Someone who will understand us instead of judging us and help us come out of the morass. For the former professional footballer, that special somebody is fitness enthusiast Jovi Nicole Engbino.

The pair of lovebirds tied the knot in a ceremony in the beautiful, picturesque La Jolla, California in 2020. They exchanged wedding vows on the same day and shared pictures of their wedding on Instagram as well. The pictures turned out to be extremely beautiful according to us.
The couple looked very happy on their special day and kept positively beaming. Te’o wrote about how he could not give his wife anything precious, so he gave her the most precious thing in his possession, his last name. The couple had one picture where they are holding hands and strolling down the beach.
Nicole, on the other hand, wrote about how she got to marry her best friend and had the time for her life during the ceremony. Though this was not how she had envisioned, it was still the perfect event according to her. Furthermore, she added that she cannot wait to celebrate the wedding reception together once the temples and venues reopen for business.
Te’o once described his girlfriend as the most beautiful girl ever and could not stop himself from gushing over her. Not just her physical beauty, but he is in love with her intellect as well.
