RG3 might not be playing pro football right now, but he's still winning in a different aspect of his life.

Robert Griffin III and his fiancée, Grete Sadeiko, are set to tie the knot this weekend according to the former NFL quarterback's Instagram page.

After a quick glance of both of their respective social media accounts, the pair appears to be inseparable, but the path to the altar wasn't always a smooth one.

Sadeiko is heptathlete from Estonian and competed for Florida State, setting a school record in the event in 2016. She graduated from FSU in 2017 with Griffin by her side.

Running is in the 24-year-old's blood. Her older sister, Grit, is also a heptathlete and captured the women's heptathlon event at the 2011 European Athletics U23 Championships.

The couple once got into an altercation after Griffin, a former track star himself, reportedly bumped into another man while running on FSU's track and had to be restrained by Sadeiko. It was Griffin's turn to Robert Griffin III Stands Up For His Girlfriend, Who Is Worried She’ll Be Deported

">come to the rescue when Sadeiko tweeted that she was concerned she might be deported after Donald Trump was elected president. A little foreshadowing, perhaps? Because while tweeting support is sweet, getting married certainly ensures she isn't going anywhere, anytime soon. The couple started dating while Griffin was in the process of divorcing his first wife and high school sweetheart, Rebecca Liddicoat after roughly three years of marriage. The quick turnaround apparently raised a few eyebrows and Griffin took to Twitter to defend his new relationship and dispute any accusations that there had been infidelity on his part. The couple was engaged in May of 2017 and has an eight-month baby girl, Gloria, who was born last July. Gloria is Griffin's second daughter. He has a daughter named Reese from his previous marriage. It's a given that Gloria is pretty adorable, but given her pedigree, we could be looking at a future track star...

Congrats to the happy couple.
