An ESPN TV host lived up to her promise and attended senior prom with a Minnesota teen that was paralyzed during a hockey game.

Michelle Beadle posted a picture on Twitter Saturday night.

In March Beadle interviewed Jack Jablonski on the show "SportsNation" about his injury. That's when he boldly asked her to prom and Beadle immediately told him yes.

"He is just a cool human being, and to do what he's been through and to be able to do it and keep smiling and everyone loves him. It's just a no brainer to want to hang out," said Beadle.

The school made a special accommodation to let the 38-year-old attend the prom.
