Nationals slugger Bryce Harper is engaged once again to longtime girlfriend Kayla Varner, according to Varner’s social media accounts.
According to reports at the time, they were originally scheduled to be married in Jan. 2015. They both seemed to enjoy planning it; Harper was working with Nevada-based apparel company Stitched on designing his own sharkskin tuxedo; engagement photos surfaced of the two draped in an American flag in front of the Washington Monument, and of them kissing and generally appearing madly in love at Nationals Park.
Then, just as the reported wedding date drew near, they ceased all public affection on social media, removed each other’s names from their Twitter bios, and that reported wedding reportedly appeared in jeopardy of not happening. Until, reportedly, it didn’t.
But that’s all in the past, because, reportedly, they are now engaged again, and have been posting photos together for a while, dating at least back to last Halloween (note the short-lived blond hair).
I don’t know — remember all the way back to yesterday, when we were able to enjoy Harper for his godlike baseball talents, without feeling the need to pry further into his personal life? That was swell, wasn’t it? No? ….. No?
Anyway, the ring looks big.
