Alex Ovechkin gets engaged to tennis star Maria Kirilenko
Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin is no longer one of Washington, D.C.'s, and Russia's most eligible bachelors. He is engaged to Maria Kirilenko.

The Capitals star announced on Monday that he and Russian tennis star girlfriend Maria Kirilenko are taking the next step in their relationship the only way Ovechkin knows how: with loads of exclamation points and smiley faces.
We are engaged !!!!!!! )))))))))— Alex Ovechkin (@ovi8) December 31, 2012
The two have been seen together a lot over the past year. Ovechkin was in Kirilenko's box in the tournaments that he could attend, including the Olympics and U.S. Open. She has been seen at many of his games for Dynamo Moscow during the lockout.
I wonder if this means Ovechkin will get his parents their own place back in Washington?
