Two of Boston's prominent sports figures will soon be related by marriage.
According to the Boston Herald's Inside Track, the Red Sox' Kevin Youkilis is engaged to Julie Brady, the sister of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady
. The Herald said the couple met in January 2011, on the night of the Patriots' playoff loss to the Jets, dated for the last year and became engaged "recently". They reportedly spent Super Bowl week together with Brady's family in Indianapolis, not far from Youkilis' home town of Cincinnati, and Youkilis was said to have watched the Pats' loss to the Giants from the Brady family suite at Lucas Oil Stadium.
The wedding allegedly will take place after the upcoming baseball season in Brady's home state of California. The Herald reports that Julie Brady and her 5-year-old daughter are moving from California to Florida to be with Youkilis during spring training.
This will be his second marriage and her first.
