Former Gators tennis player Ryan Sweeting and his famous fiancée.

No word on how Leonard, her boyfriend on "Big Bang Theory," feels about the news, but Penny -- or Kaley Cuoco in real life -- is engaged to former Gators tennis player Ryan Sweeting.

You can get the Hollywood details here from

The couple has been dating only three months but that was apparently enough for love to blossom. If you are into celebrity news, you may have seen photos this week of Sweeting visiting Cuoco on the set her movie "The Wedding Ringer."

Seems an appropriate name for her next movie.

As for Sweeting, he played for the Gators in 2006. He wasn't around too long before embarking on a professional career.

Here is Sweeting's official bio from UF.

Sweeting was around long enough to hang out with The Gainesville Sun.

Sweeting continues to scratch out a career on the ATP World Tour, currently ranked 532nd in the world.

Needless to say, his ranking is much higher in Hollywood these days.

Congrats to Sweeting and Cuoco. More details to come after the wedding.
