Tennis player Mark Philippoussis has scored love with actress Jennifer Esposito: The couple are planning to marry, PEOPLE has learned.
“They are happily engaged and enjoying their time together,” his rep says.
Esposito, 36, a New York native, and the Australian tennis star, 32, were engaged this summer.
Philippoussis previously starred on the NBC reality dating show The Age of Love, in which he was asked to choose between women in their 20s and women in their 40s competing for his attention – the “kittens” vs. the “cougars.” He ended up picking “kitten” Amanda Salinas. At the time, he described himself as “a simple guy who wants a simple girl.”
Esposito, who has appeared on Samantha Who?, Rescue Me and in the movie Crash, was previously married to actor Bradley Cooper. A rep for the actress had no comment on her engagement.
