Adds the pro, with a laugh: "So, basically, smooth sailing."

Tim Tebow got on one knee in Indianapolis Saturday night – to "Tebow" with Maria Menounos in the VIP section of ESPN's Super Bowl party. It was a special treat for the Extra hostess, who Tebowed solo on the Golden Globes red carpet in January.

Nearby, Tom Cruise's son Connor and his posse held court at a table, while Spike Lee, bedecked in Giants gear, relaxed with his son; Shaquille O'Neal cuddled with pint-sized girlfriend Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander; and Drake warmed up for his set by handing out shots to women near the stage.

At the Audi Super Bowl cocktail party Saturday evening, Glee's Matthew Morrison and girlfriend Renee Puente celebrated with fellow Giants fan Aaron Paul and his new fiancée, Lauren Parsekian, before the spouses-to-be took in the view of Indianapolis's Lucas Oil Stadium from the balcony of the Conrad Hotel. Also enjoying the sight: Kellan Lutz, who gushed over the midwestern city's beauty.

Meanwhile, Neil Patrick Harris and partner David Burtka enjoyed a rare moment away from caring for their twins to talk football with partygoers, while Spike Lee couldn't hold back his excitement over bringing his son to his first Super Bowl to root for the hometown Giants. But by the time Patriots owner Robert Kraft popped in, he could claim to be in friendly territory, as Erin Andrews and Maria Menounos made it clear they were Pats gals. – Jessica Wedemeyer

"They were so into each other it didn't seem to matter where they were," according to the source (and the photos don't lie, either!).

The couple partied with a group of friends on the resort's beach and went for a swim in the ocean, the eyewitness said.

Also having fun in the sun were Maria Menounos and her boyfriend, Kevin Undergaro, spotted playing football on the beach.
