Phillies slugger Ryan Howard and former Eagles Cheerleader Krystle Campbell, his girlfriend of nearly two years, are now engaged, according to Bucks County Courier-Times Phillies writer Randy Miller.
Miller posted on his blog this afternoon that he had congratulated Howard on the engagement to Campbell, who works as a suburban elementary school teacher, and that the Big Piece told him he was planning for a small wedding.
Miller, who also wrote "Harry the K: The Remarkable Life of Harry Kalas," says the couple are planning to wed next year.
Emails to representatives for the Phillies and Eagles seeking additional details were not immediately returned this evening.
The Fightins blog, which no longer publishes, identified Campbell as Howard's mystery Super Bowl date in February 2010, and we reported days later that Campbell and Howard began dating the previous summer, shortly after she and Flyers center Jeff Carter had broken up after going out for several months.
