The 34-year-old spotted Kaitlin Cornell’s carefully crafted sign at Princeton University which read, “Just married, Stevie. Kiss me?”
And Gerrard, who retired from international duty last week, duly obliged as he first greeted husband Ryan O’Donnell before cheekily kissing his new wife.
“He was shaking everybody’s hands, so I shook his hand and then he kissed my cheek,” Kaitlin told Liverpool’s website. “I’d made the sign so he’d see it, so I couldn’t believe it when he came over – I was so excited.
“He shook hands with my husband first, so he had his blessing!
“We’re due to go on our honeymoon at the end of August, but I think we can say tonight was our honeymoon watching our heroes training live.”
Husband Ryan clearly held no grudges either, thanking Gerrard and Liverpool for the unforgettable moment.
“She had a better time tonight than she did at the wedding! Steven is a legend. I was honoured he gave my wife a peck on the cheek.”
