NBA player Tony Parker confirmed that he is engaged during a live Twitter chat on Wednesday, two-and-a-half years after he was divorced from Eva Longoria.
Parker was asked during live Twitter chat on June 26, "Favorite thing to do to unwind after a game?"
The Frenchman responded, "@rennx3 @Tissot Spend time with my fiance #TissotTimeOut."
The San Antonio Spurs star was online as part of a promotion for Tissot, a watch manufacturer.
Axelle Francine, a French journalist, is reportedly engaged to Parker. The couple allegedly began dating in February 2012. They were photographed in a romantic embrace after the Spurs won the Western Conference trophy.
Actress Longoria, 38, and Parker, 31, filed for divorce separately in late 2010 with the actress citing "irreconcilable differences" as the cause. The divorce was finalized on Jan. 28. 2011.
The two were married in 2007. It was Parker's first marriage and Longoria's second. She was previously married to actor Tyler Christopher
The Desperate Housewives star decided to call it quits after she allegedly found text messages between Parker and Longoria's friend, Erin Berry. The written conversation between the two apparently alluded to the fact Parker and Berry were having an affair.
Parker was injured as an innocent bystander during a fight between Chris Brown and his bodyguards and Drake's entourage on June 14. Shards of glass flew into Parker's eye and caused damage to his cornea. The player recently filed a lawsuit against the nightclub where the fight took place, W.i.P. He is suing for $20 million.
Longoria is currently starring in the Lifetime series Devious Maids. It is the first show to feature an all-Latina cast, which includes Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sánchez, Edy Ganem, Judy Reyes, and Susan Lucci. Longoria developed with Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry.
She had a reality dating show that aired on NBC earlier this year entitled Ready for Love, but it was canceled after only a few episodes.
