Jaime Edmondson's announcement as it appears on twitter.

Tampa Bay Rays third baseman Evan Longoria and longtime girlfriend Jaime Edmondson shared the news today that they are engaged to be married.

Edmondson was seen — by eagle-eyed observers — sporting an engagement ring in Tampa Friday night at the VIP opening of Ducky's sports lounge, which Longoria co-owns.

Then she made it official on Twitter on Tuesday, posted a photo greeting card of their soon to be 1-year-old daughter, Elle, holding a sign that says "My Mom & Dad Are Getting Married."

They are planning a January 2016 wedding, and are talking about first expanding their family.

Longoria, the Rays franchise player, and Edmondson, a model, sports blogger, former NFL cheerleader and Playboy Playmate of January 2010, have been dating since February 2011. He proposed about a week before Thanksgiving.
