CBS Sports star Tony Gonzalez and his wife October Gonzalez invited ET into their home where they chatted about their marriage.

"When he told me what he did, I was like, 'Cool. As a hobby that's nice,'" October said.

After that the couple dated for four years before Tony popped the question. The mood may have been slightly spoiled, as Tony's face was temporarily paralyzed at the time from Bell's palsy -- a disorder of the nerve that controls muscles in the face.

"He could only smile with one side of his face," said October.

Today, Tony and October are the proud parents to two children -- 6-year-old Malia and 4-year-old River. Despite Tony's busy schedule as a CBS Sports host, the keep in constant contact through Skype.
