JoAnna Garcia has hit a home run—in her personal life!
The Better With You star—and proud Cubana—is reportedly heading to her homestate of Florida this weekend to tie the knot with her fiancé, New York Yankees outfielder, Nick Swisher.
Garcia, 31, who got engaged to Swisher in May after dating for a year, will reportedly be walking down the aisle this Saturday at the Breakers Hotel & Resort in Palm Beach, Florida. JoAnna will be wearing a Monique Lhuillier gown.
Celebs expected to attend the wedding include, JoAnna's former Reba co-star Reba McEntire, her besties Jamie-Lynn Sigler, and Lance Bass (both of whom are part of her bridal party), and Yankee pitcher CC Sabathia.
Swisher recently told People he can’t wait to marry JoAnna. “I know she's going to look like an angel," he said, "and I can't wait to see her." He added that he and JoAnna have a close bond. "My old man told me a long time ago you need to marry your best friend, and I think that's exactly what I'm doing," he said.
In july, Garcia told Latina.com that getting engaged to Swisher was a no-brainer. “Having this relationship is the easiest thing I’ve ever done," she said. "This is the most exciting time in our lives and we’re savoring every minute of it!”
Garcia added that she had finally found Mr. Right. “You have to be with the right person. It's so much more important to meet the right person, whether you’re married or not, then it is to get married and get a divorce," she said.
Latina.com emailed Garcia’s rep to confirm the news of JoAnna’s wedding this weekend, but the rep declined to comment, saying, “No Confirmation.”
AccessHollywood.com is now reporting that Swisher's teammate, Alex Rodriguez will also be attending the beachside wedding, and as his date he'll be bringing his on-again/off-again girlfriend, Cameron Diaz, who happens to be a friend of the bride.
