Welcome to the CBS family, Gordon Beckham.
The Chicago White Sox second baseman took to Twitter on Thursday to announce he'd gotten engaged:
I'm engaged to my best friend @brittanyfletch . Happiest day of my life. Boom.— Gordon Beckham (@gordonbeckham) December 27, 2012
The connection to CBS? Future wife Brittany Fletcher was a contestant on this past season of The Amazing Race, teaming with best friend Caitlin King. Spoiler Alert: Fletcher and King were eliminated in the third episode, while Beckham hit just .234 in 2012. Regardless, it should go down as a good year for both (plus Beckham is arbitration-eligible for the first time, so he should get a raise in 2013). Congrats, kids.
