J.J. Watt's publicity-heavy trip to the Super Bowl has notched up another episode.

First, Axe flew him to New York to get a faux-hawk, because nothing says "Axe" like a faux-hawk.

Then he got on Deadspin with the touching story of a six-year-old girl who was all upset because she could not marry him.

We guess the girl could have moved to Alabama, but instead she cried on YouTube for her mother. Watt got wind of the video, which went semi-viral, and asked his Facebook buds to track down the girl.

They did, and Watt got down on one knee to Breanna, and she became his pretend wife for a day, which is what Britney Spears did a few years ago, we think.

Here's the girl's video:

And here are the results, from Watt's Facebook page, where he told fans "Thanks to your help, we found 6-year-old Breanna and she said yes to being my pretend wife for the day..."
