Donald Driver now has a Mirror Ball trophy to go with his Super Bowl ring!

When asked whether his victory compared to winning the Super Bowl, Driver smiled and responded. "I think it does. It's truly something special. I reached the greatest milestone in my career, and that was winning the Super Bowl. I just made my partner reach her greatest milestone, and now she's Dancing With the Stars champion."

You can check out Donald Driver's reaction to his victory announcement in the video below (spoiler alert: he was pretty darned excited about it).

Were you happy to see Donald Driver take home the Mirror Ball trophy? Or do you think Katherine Jenkins or William Levy would have been more deserving?  Before the performance finale Zimbio readers overwhelmingly thought that Levy and his shirtless bronzed bod would take home the season's big prize, but it looks like Driver's show-stopping freestyle routine pushed him over the edge. So congrats to Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd!Donald Driver now has a Mirror Ball trophy to go with his Super Bowl ring!

The Green Bay Packers wide receiver was named the winner of the 14th season of Dancing With the Stars, beating out Welsh opera singer Katherine Jenkins and telenovela hottie William Levy. Driver became the third football player to nab the big win, following in the footsteps of Emmitt Smith and Hines Ward.

Following the victory announcement, Driver's wife of 12 years, Betina, rushed the stage with the couple's 7-month-old daughter Charity to hug her husband and his pro partner, Peta Murgatroyd. The DWTS victory is particularly sweet for Murgatroyd, who was the first pro dancer eliminated last season with partner Metta World Peace.
