Hear that? That's hearts of men breaking all over the world. Why you ask? One of the most sought after women in sports, heck, in anything, is engaged.
L.A. Laker Sasha Vujacic put a ring on tennis star Maria Sharapova.
The Slovenian basketball player (age 26) popped the question to the 23-year-old Russian beauty at his Manhattan Beach, California home on Tuesday and apparently the ring is a looker.
They've been dating for about a year, having first been spotted at a U2 concert together. Since then, it's been a whirl of romantic bliss fit for two athletes -- vacations in Florida and Italy and cheering for each other at games/matches.
Most professional athletes tend to date Hollywood celebrities. Kim Kardashian has rounded out about half the NFL, Hilary Duff and Carrie Underwood are married to pro hockey players Mike Comrie and Mike Fisher, Jessica Simpson dated Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo ... want me to keep going here?
With them both being athletes, I feel that they'll understand what each other is going through, professionally speaking. There definitely won't be any, "Honey, it's just a game" soothing (which is probably the worst thing you can say to an athlete or sports fanatic).
I just hope they have kids. Could you imagine what Amazonian-type super children they'd make together?
Congratulations to the happy couple!
Think these two will last?
