JoAnna Garcia, who has starred on such TV series as ‘Privileged‘ and ‘Reba,’ is engaged to New York Yankees outfielder Nick Swisher.

“I am so thrilled!” the actress shares with Fancast.

Garcia began dating Swisher last summer, and even rode a parade float with him after the Yankees won the 2009 World Series.

Interestingly, both Garcia and Swisher guest-starred on ‘How I Met Your Mother‘ this past season, though in separate episodes.

Garcia next can be seen on (the auspiciously titled?) ‘Better Together,’ a new ABC comedy that’s poised to join the successful ranks of ‘Modern Family,’ ‘Cougar Town’ and ‘The Middle.’

‘Better Together,’ in which Garcia and Jennifer Finnigan (‘Close to Home’) play sisters, will air Wednesdays at 8:30/7:30c, after ‘The Middle.’
