Actress Minka Kelly
and Yankees star Derek Jeter
are engaged! The couple have reportedly decided to say "I do" in November at the same Long Island castle where Kevin Jonas
and his lady Danielle Deleasa
recently tied the knot.

The folks at PopEater
did a little digging to find out how Kelly turned Jeter into a one-woman man. They talked to Bonnie Fuller, Editor-in-Chief of HollywoodLife.com, who said, "She is clearly devoted to him. She goes to probably every game of his that her schedule allows. Being a celebrity herself, she'll understand the pressures of fame."
She added, "It's helpful when you're as under the spotlight as Derek Jeter is, to have a girlfriend who does understand what that's like. [Minka] both understands what it's like to have to deal with the interest of fans and what it's like to have to cope with paparazzi and having a very public life as well as private life. Not everybody can cope with that and is also comfortable with the spotlight."
And on the flip side, how did Derek reel Minka in? "He's got a great reputation. There's no black splotches of concern about infidelities with former girlfriends ... he's got a spotless record."
Congrats to the happy couple!
