Here is more from the Daily News:

Nick Swisher told reporters Friday he’s been engaged to “Privileged” actress Joanna Garcia since┬áMay 19.

The news came just before Swisher hit a two-run homer in the opener of the Yankees’ four-game series against the Cleveland Indians in the Bronx. The Bombers┬ábeat the Indians, 8-2.

Swisher, 29, confirmed he was seeing Garcia to Sports Illustrated in September.

“Joanna is my lady,” he said.

This is the second engagement for Garcia, who was previously engaged to Justin Timberlake’s business partner Trace Ayala in 2008.

Garcia, 30, will star in ABC’s comedy “Better Together” next fall.

Congratulations to Nick and Joanna. She first came into the picture during the Yankees ticker tape parade last October when she was sharing a float down The Canyon of Heroes with Swisher.

Good luck to the both of them.
