Collins Tuohy — daughter of Leigh Anne Tuohy, whose story inspired The Blind Side and was portrayed by Sandra Bullock in the film — is saying “I do” to longtime boyfriend Cannon Smith, the brother of Demolition producer and Black Label Media co-founder Molly Smith, who first brought The Blind Side script to Alcon. (Collins was portrayed by Lily Collins in the Oscar-nominated movie.)
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Molly revealed, “My youngest brother is marrying Collins Tuohy in three weeks. [laughs] I know, really close families.”
Though Collins, 29, hasn’t shared the official wedding date on social media, she’s been documenting the process of prepping for her special day on Instagram.
“My sweet sweet friends came today to be with me the first time I tried my dress on!! Love them for making it so special for me!!!!” she captioned in a recent post, with one friend responding, “The most beautiful bride to be!!! Can’t wait for April!”
Cannon is just as excited about the nuptials as his soon-to-be wife.
“I can’t wait to see you walking down the aisle wearing it! I know you are going to look absolutely beautiful! Love you baby, and can’t wait to marry you!! #luckyman,” he commented on a photo that showed Collin’s aunt’s reaction to seeing her niece in the wedding gown.
Similar to Collins’ adoptive brother, Michael Oher, Cannon was a football star in the making. According to WSJ, Cannon played one season for the University of Miami before transferring to the University of Memphis as the team’s quarterback.
According to one of Collins’ Insta posts, the duo started dating when she “was asked out on a date at the ‘Cookie Party'” and a decade later, Cannon would “get down on a knee at the same party and ask me to marry him!” She also added: “The past year being engaged to @cannon5smith has been the best one of my life, and I can’t wait to celebrate many more cookie parties with you!”
