Jamie-Lynn Sigler is settling down once again, this time with Washington Nationals-affiliated infielder Cutter Dykstra, son of former MLB star Lenny Dykstra,
The couple announced the news as most do nowadays: on Twitter. First, the actress who is most famous for her role in The Sopranos sent out this tweet with an Instagram link to a picture featuring the ecstatic pair.

My question is whether Cutter just up and asked her right there in the car. I will assume it was far more romantic than that.
The 23-year-old Nationals player tweeted out in kind right after.

CBS News reminds us that Sigler was married once to former manager A.J. DiScala, but split from him back in 2005.
Since that time, she has been in rumored relationships with Entourage's Jerry Ferrara, as well as New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez.
I am sure there is a joke there about him not locking things down, but it escapes me.
Cutter is the son of embattled former Major Leaguer Lenny Dykstra. For his part, he is trying to carve out his own path in the big leagues.
Last season he played for the Class A Hagerstown Suns, a Washington Nationals affiliate. There he hit .291 with 7 home runs and 32 stolen bases.
The obvious thing to note is that the two are moving much like celebrity couples are known to do: very quickly. They have been dating for about a year, but are now ready for the commitment to last a lifetime.
US Weekly has word from a source who believes the two are ready for the plunge.
The actress' rep confirms the engagement news to Us Weekly and a source tells Us that Sigler is "over the moon."
"Jamie couldn't be happier. Cutter is the perfect guy for her," the source adds. "Although they have only been together for a year, they both know that this is it for both of them. They are both on cloud nine as are their families and friends."
Sigler currently stars on the NBC series "Guys with Kids," which should give the couple a very nice comfort zone as Dykstra continues to work his way up the minor league ladder.
