After months of online flirting on the popular social media site Instagram, NBA baller Andre Drummond finally got his chance to meet his “woman crush” actress Jeanette McCurdy over the weekend.
Here’s how their relationship all started…
Earlier this summer, Drummond, 20, started participating in “#WCW”, which stands for “Women Crush Wednesday,” on Twitter and Instagram, posting a photo of McCurdy each week.
The 21-year-old McCurdy took notice a few weeks ago, followed him back on Twitter and began talking to him. When she told him, “I wanna watch you play!” earlier this month, Drummond responded: “ill let you know when I play in LA!” (That would be Nov. 17 against the Lakers and March 22 against the Clippers)
Since then, Drummond appears to have sent McCurdy gifts, including a teddy bear she named “Drummy.” She also received flowers and, while she didn’t say Drummond sent them to her, he submitted this comment: “glad you like them.”
McCurdy, mostly known for her role on Nickelodeon’s “iCarly,” also recently posted a photo of herself wearing a Pistons jacket.
Over this past weekend, the blossoming online friendship-romance between Jennette and the Detroit Pistons star Drummmond stayed on course as the two finally got a chance to meet for the first time in L.A.
On their first date, the two hung out with their friends, including Jennette’s “iCarly” cast mate, actor Nathan Kress.
Their weekend also included a trip to Disneyland, laser tag, going to the movies, hanging out by poolside and much more.
Check out the photos below of Jeanette and Andre’s first date.
Congrats to Andre And Jeanette on their new found love.
