CW actress engaged to New York Yankee

Here’s some news worthy of a "Gossip Girl" blast: Joanna Garcia – who starred in the CW’s “Privileged” and “Gossip Girl” after playing Cheyenne on "Reba" for years – is engaged to New York Yankee outfielder Nick Swisher, CNN confirmed.

The baseball player hasn’t been quiet about his relationship: The 29-year-old told Jimmy Fallon on his late-night talk show in September that Garcia is “amazing,” and was upfront with Sports Illustrated that same month that the two were dating, according to PEOPLE.

Swisher is certainly not the only Yankee player tied up with Hollywood. Derek Jeter is dating “Friday Night Lights” actress Minka Kelly, and Alex Rodriguez has been spotted with Cameron Diaz.

Garcia, 30, will be back on the small screen this fall in ABC’s “Better Together.”
