Big Stars, Big Love, Big News… Because of a Giant Teddy Bear?
(But you don’t have to be famous to be romantic!)
The recent social media courtship between Andre Drummond, the 6’ 10” center for the Detroit Pistons and Jennette McCurdy, star from shows like Disney’s “iCarly” has grabbed a lot of attention. But what may have grabbed her attention is the Giant Teddy bear he sent as part of his campaign to woo her.
Giant Teddy Bear Love!

Drummond started his pursuit with photos on Instagram, and some tweets. McCurdy finally responded, admitting she had no idea who he was but gave him a shout out anyway. One thing led to another, which led to him sending a Giant Teddy bear that she clearly loves – and has named “Drummy” after asking for input and ideas, although we know him as Shaggy Cuddles!

Things progressed from a virtual flirtation to real-life dating, and the young couple seem quite smitten with each other, continuing to share their relationship through the social media that started it all.
