Twitter users were shocked on Wednesday when Tony Parker revealed that he was engaged to girlfriend, Axelle Francine, and many fans are growing curious about the dark-haired beauty?

There isn't much information about the gorgeous woman, but many have indicated that she resembles Parker's ex-wife, Eva Longoria. Francine is a French journalist who goes by her first name. She has reportedly been dating Parker since Feb. 2012, or possibly longer. 

Francine, who has been spotted supporting Parker during the 2013 NBA playoffs, attended the San Antonio point guard's Western Conference finals games against the Memphis Grizzles in May and the couple were even seen kissing in the hallway. 

The Daily Mail reported that the two were recently shopping for engagement rings. 

During Parker's Twitter chat with Tissot Wednesday, he may have also hinted at possible honeymoon destinations, when he mentioned his three favorites places to visit. 

"The Maldives, Tahiti and a safari anywhere in Africa," Parker wrote.

A source described Francine and Parker's romance as true love.

"He's madly in love with her," the source said.

It seems as if Parker is moving on from his highly publicized divorce to Longoria in 2011. The former couple were married in 2007, separated in 2010 and officially divorced a year later. 

Longoria admitted, recently, that despite the divorce she is still a Spurs fan.

"I've been a Spurs fan my whole life! And an even bigger Pop fan," the actress tweeted on June 3. 

The former Desperate Housewives star revealed on the Dr. Oz Show that after the divorce she lost her appetite and lost a significant amount of weight.

"People kept saying, 'You look amazing. Divorce agrees with you. And I was like, 'I don't feel good. I have no energy,'" she said. "I didn't know I was depressed. I mean, I knew it was a sad moment in my life, but I wouldn't categorize myself as depressed." 

Meanwhile, Parker said his loss to the Miami Heat in Game 7 of the NBA Finals was one of the most difficult defeats in his career. He will take a month off from basketball before playing for the French national team in late July.
