Texans' J.J. Watt surprises newlyweds whose wedding cake was tribute to him

A Houston couple created a wedding cake that would sack anyone's heart, including one of the Texans biggest stars.

Nathan Poe's groom's cake last year was a tribute to his favorite Texans player, number 99 J.J. Watt. Thanks to a recent Twitter post, news of the unique cake went viral.

Watt recently saw the cake and decided to pay The Poes a visit. Unfortunately, Nathan Poe works on a rig in the Gulf so Watt created a video message so Poe's wife Stephanie could deliver it to him.

In the video, Watt says "I'm here with your new wife and I just want to say congratulations and thank you so much for including me. People sent me the pictures and I was very touched and I was happy I could be a part of your wedding. So I'm sorry I missed you. I hope all is well and I can't wait until you return home safely back to your new wife."

Watt, the 2012 AP Defensive Player of the Year, also dropped off autographed Texans gear for the couple.
