The second weekend in May was special for Chiefs quarterback Aaron Murray’s family, but that joy extended beyond the NFL Draft.
Sure, getting picked by the Chiefs in the fifth round was a big deal, but it’s also when Murray’s brother, Josh, got engaged.
Josh Murray was revealed Monday as the winner of ABC’s “The Bachelorette.”
Josh proposed to Andi Dorfman after accepting the last rose on the reality show’s 10th season finale, but the episode actually was taped in early May.

“I’ve known for like three months now,” Aaron said. “The finale happened the week of the draft, so we knew that Friday at the draft. We’re watching the (draft) and we get a call from them, like, ‘Hey, she picked me and I proposed and we’re engaged.’ That was definitely an exciting weekend. He gets engaged and then the next day I get drafted.
“There was a lot of excitement going on in the Murray household.”
Unfortunately, Aaron wasn’t among Monday’s 8 million viewers, which is a record low for “The Bachelorette” finale but still made it the night’s No. 1 primetime show.
“I missed the show Monday night, because we were in meetings, so I had to get it on iTunes or something and watch it,” said Aaron, who reported that his brother and Dorfman, who are both from Atlanta, remain smitten.
“Yes, they’re still engaged and everything’s going well so far,” Aaron said.
Obviously, Aaron is thrilled for Josh.
Of course, he’s probably equally thrilled that he won’t have to answer any more questions about “The Bachelorette,” even if it was fun while it lasted.
“He’s excited,” Murray said. “He’s very happy. It was fun watching him when I did get the opportunity to watch him on TV. Hey, I’ve got a new sister-in-law, so I’m happy.”
