Congratulations to Flyers owner Ed Snider and Lin Spivak, whom he began dating around March, who were recently engaged, Snider confirmed Thursday morning.

"We are very happy together," Snider said through Comcast-Spectacor spokesman Ike Richman. They declined to provide specifics but SportsInput.com reported recently that Snider proposed to Spivak at a "swanky restarant in Santa Barbara, CA,

The web site, which broke news of the engagement, says Comcast-Spectacor chairman Snider excused himself to the restroom at which point a group of singers came over and sang "Marry You" by Bruno Mars before Snider returned, getting down on one knee and proposing marriage.

Snider, 79, has been married three times, divorcing jewelry designer Christine Decroix in 2009. Spivak, 45, has been previously married as well.

No word yet on when or where the couple plan to wed.
