Here's what Mitts told the paper about Feeley's proposal:
"I was completely surprised," gushed Mitts, who indicated the couple have set a date (Feb. 13, 2010) and location (Cabo San Lucas, Mexico) for their wedding. "I was heading home to Cincinnati that day for the holidays and it was a great early Christmas present."
Unlike, say, Anna Kournikova, the WPS star is more than just a pretty face. Mitts has been a member of two gold medal-winning teams at the 2004 and 2008 Olympics. At the University of Florida, Mitts was an All-American and national champion in 1998.
Mitts and the Breakers make their WPS bow this Sunday against FC Gold Pride in Santa Clara, Calif.
Soccer star Heather Mitts, right, recently revealed that she's set to tie the knot with Philadelphia Eagles quarterback A.J. Feeley. "I was completely surprised," said Mitts of Feeley's Christmas Day proposal. Click through to see more photos of top couples from the sports world..
