Brad Penny, a veteran right-handed pitcher who played for the St. Louis Cardinals in 2010, is engaged to the stunning Karina Smirnoff, a professional dancer on Dancing With the Stars.
According to People Magazine, the two have been engaged since Oct. 4, the day after the end of baseball's regular season.
Smirnoff, 32, who has gained popularity on the hit ABC show, is a native of Ukraine. This season, she was paired with Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino of Jersey Shore fame, and the duo was recently eliminated from the competition.
Penny, also 32, went 3-4 with a 3.23 ERA for the Cardinals this past season—after also having spent time with the Marlins, Dodgers, Red Sox and Giants over the course of his 11 years in the bigs—and struggled with an injury to his back. He is a free agent this winter.
But given Smirnoff's beauty—not to mention her moves on the dance floor—Penny probably isn't minding spending a little extra time off the field.
In fact, Smirnoff is just one of the beauties the 6-foot-4, 230-pound Penny has been lucky enough to shack up with.
