Nearly three years after getting a divorce after a 13-year marriage with ex-wife Karen, Jason Varitek has officially moved on. Days before his 39th birthday (which was Monday), Varitek popped the question to girlfriend Catherine Panagiotopoulos at a suprise party this past weekend. She said yes.
Panagiotopoulos, who apparently used to run a modeling agency, previously dated Yankees outfielder Nick Swisher, so she’s familiar with ballplayers and their crazy schedules. With Varitek, who may only play a couple more years, Panagiotopoulos should get him all the time at home very soon.
Tim Wakefield and his wife Stacy, David Ortiz and his wife Tiffany, Jonathan Papelbon and his wife Ashley, Dustin Pedroia and his wife Kelli, and Clay Buchholz and his wife Lindsay were all in attendance at the party.
