If Ben Roethlisberger is engaged to be married, he doesn't want to talk about it. But a lot of other people do.

The social media have been all a-Twitter with congratulations for the Steelers quarterback, who purportedly popped the question to a young woman from New Castle over the Christmas holidays.

Asked point blank today if he was engaged, Mr. Roethlisberger declined to answer, except to say he wouldn't talk about his private life.

The young woman is being named on blogs and Tweets, but Post-Gazette attempts to reach her have not yet succeeded.

Information developed by the newspaper shows her as a graduate of Laurel High School, where she was a softball star, and a 2008 graduate of St. Francis University in Loretto, Cambria County, with a bachelor's degree in health science, and, a year later, a master's of physicians assistant.

Ben Roethlisberger Won't Talk About Whether He's Engaged
by Charlie Wilmoth • Jan 4, 2011 3:04 PM EST

There have been rumors that Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger recently got engaged to Ashley Harlan. Roethlisberger has heard them, and he's not talking:

[KDKA's John] Shumway: Word has it you’re engaged. Is that true?

Roethlisberger: Oh geez. Listen, there’s always rumors out there about professional athletes, especially about me. You guys know that I am not going to talk about my own personal life, I don’t do that. My one singular focus right now is on the playoffs, on football and trying to get to the Super Bowl. So, that’s what my focus is right now.

Given Roethlisberger's very public problems with women, this could gain some tabloid attention, which is just gonna be awesome, because it will mean that, for a while at least, you'll have to hear about it all the time. Here's hoping that whatever happens, Roethlisberger is good to the women in his life, if he has any, and his issues with them fade into the background.

Anyway, reports that Roethlisberger got engaged Christmas Day have been on Twitter for a while.

Thanks to Steelers Depot.

Maybe Roethlisberger can ask her to sit in the front row in court at the trial on the Nevada allegations

Ben about to tie the knot? He's not saying

Last updated: 3:36 pm

Is Ben Roethlisberger engaged? (Uh ho, hearts are breaking all over Steeler Nation. That being said thought I really hope this is true but for his sake and for our off season sanity. - mesa)

The Steelers quarterback neither confirmed nor denied an Internet rumor that says he is when asked about it today after practice.

“There’s always, always rumors out there about professional athletes, especially about me,” Roethlisberger said. “You guys know that I’m not going to talk about my personal life. My own singular focus right now is on the playoffs and trying to get to the Super Bowl.”

When asked again if he could confirm or deny his rumored engagement, Roethlisberger said, “I’m not going to talk about my personal life.”

If this is true, then I'm happy for him. Ben has been in the negative limelight for a while now. I'm happy for him, but the timing sucks. I hope this don't distract him during playoffs. I got to say, When I first heard I was shocked, because I knew eventually he would get married, but didn't think it would happen already. Congratulations, Are in order to Ben and his fiance Ashley Harlan!!!:thumbsup:

Hey, if this news is true, it's good for at least two reasons:

1. Given that some holier-than-thou idiot fans and commentators seem to think that just because a QB is a married man, that instantly makes him a saint, then this can only bode well for Roethlisberger in the public eye. (I'm not calling Ben a bad guy... just pointing out that when his name was being dragged through the mud last summer I kept hearing people bring up names of other QBs who were married, acting as though that made them better people than Ben).

2. If he indeed popped the question on Christmas, then I don't think we have to worry about this being a distraction for him. Did you SEE the way he played on Sunday? This engagement, if true, might have motivated him to play one of the best games of his career. Did anyone watch Playbook today? They were literally gushing over his performance. Pretty awesome.

Yah I was expecting a smokin hot big breasted supermodel(tom Brady's wife), but I guess Ben has grown up a little bit. Until of course 4 months into the marriage he thinks why the hell did I do this! JK good for him though if it's true, hopefully he'll want to impress her with a 156.3 passer rating in Foxborough.

Big Ben's big secret gets out, but who is she?

If Ben Roethlisberger is engaged to be married, he doesn't want to talk about it. But a lot of other people do.

The social media have been all a-Twitter with congratulations for the Steelers quarterback, who purportedly popped the question to a young woman from Lawrence County over the holidays.

Asked point blank if he was engaged, Mr. Roethlisberger declined to answer, except to say he wouldn't talk about his private life.

KDKA's John Shumway went to Mr. Roethlisberger Tuesday in the Steelers locker room and asked the quarterback if all the rumors were true.

Mr. Roethlisberger fended off the question like a blitzing linebacker.

"Oh geez. Listen, there's always rumors out there about professional athletes, especially about me. You guys know that I am not going to talk about my own personal life, I don't do that. My one singular focus right now is on the playoffs, on football and trying to get to the Super Bowl."

But while Mr. Roethlisberger sidestepped the question, social media sites rushed in with Tweets and blogs and postings, identifying his "fiancee" as a resident of Hickory Township, near New Castle.

Information developed by the newspaper showed her as a graduate of Laurel High School, where she was a softball star, and a 2008 graduate of St. Francis University in Loretto, Cambria County, with a bachelor's degree in health science, and, a year later, a master of physician assistant.

Armed with that information, the Post-Gazette went to Lawrence County, where the bride-to-be was said to reside.

They smiled congenially but, in the end, David and Gloria Harlan declined to comment on all the reports that their daughter, Ashley, was engaged to be married to the starting quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

"I'm sorry but I have no comment at this time," said Mrs. Harlan, whose family lives atop a rural knob that overlooks Devil's Elbow Road in Hickory Township, just outside the village of Eastbrook near New Castle.

Another pleasant smile and "no comment" followed minutes later from Mr. Harlan after he pulled his pickup into the driveway Tuesday evening.

A few neighbors confirmed that it was common knowledge that Ashley and Ben have been "an item" -- as Amy Kunselman put it. But, no one had first-hand information about any pending nuptials. At least no information they were willing to share.

"They're a wonderful family," Mrs. Kunselman said of the Harlans.

Word of the couple's relationship began circulating in the community following a summer outing by Mrs. Harlan and Mr. Roethlisberger's stepmother to a little shop in nearby Volant.

Mrs. Harlan is said to have introduced Mrs. Roethlisberger to an acquaintance as the mother of her daughter's boyfriend.

Two things.
A. some girls won't do the funky chicken with you unless you put a ring on their finger.
B. If I was Ben, I'd buy a bunch of cubic zirconia rings and make sure i got one on the finger before i got more than a kiss.

I was engaged from 1979 to 1993. Then i realized that i was in lust, not love.

coffeecup
01-05-2011, 12:26 PM
The New Castle News supposedly "confirmed" that the engagement took place. They show the name and pictures of the young lady but do not say who "confirmed" these rumors. So basically, they are still rumors. KDKA news mentioned her name yesterday.

http://www.ncnewsonline.com/current/x1522065260/It-s-Confirmed-Big-Ben-engaged-to-Laurel-grad-Ashley-Harlan

If this link doesn't work go to ncnewsonline.com

If it's true, I wish them both the best! This would be a good time to announce an engagement for them especially if you don't want people prying into your personal life (announce it and then kick back) and it seems the Steelers, especially under Tomlin, don't like to be praised in the media before big games so this will divert some of the stories away from the Steelers' strategy.. This way neither the Steelers or the engagement would get as much press as they would if the events didn't coincide. JMO

Duke's season took a turn when their great freshman point guard Kyrie Irving sustained a toe injury and every time Troy starts limping i hold my breath

Giselle Bundchen is NOT a "hot big breasted supermodel". She is a runway model, and is built like all runway models-- tall, lanky, no curves, no tits, flat ass, and legs like chopsticks. She IS beautiful, the way a really nice looking furniture or a beautiful flower or a snowflake would be, but not very sexy, IMHO.

Some people are so out of touch with reality. You think just because someone has a lot of money they need to be married to some superficial, stuck up, so-called beauty. This woman he is rumored to be engaged to is very nice looking and she is probably very smart unlike most of the supermodel types of the world. Most of the drop dead gorgeous women I have known I would not want anything to do with. They are so stuck on themselves and expect a man to wine and dine them to the point of emptying your bank account. Screw them and the bus they rode in on. I will take a smart woman any day over a supermodel.

For the record...Ben has dated some very good looking, well off/semi-famous women (Natalie Gublis, Missy Peregrym). Maybe that's just not the type of girl he's interested in now. His life is hectic enough. I imagine dating/marrying someone with the same hectic lifestyle would be tough. And I know that it seems like celebrities marrying celebrities is the normal thing to do, but keep in mind that it's extremely rare to hear about those relationships amounting to anything or working out in the long run.

Besides, who really gives a shit if he's dating/engaged to someone comparable to Gisele (in looks). I hope the rumors are true, and wish them the best of luck.

No, I know guys are interested in hot chicks (for reasons that are obvious), but sometimes maintaining a relationship with a person takes more than just being interested in their looks.

SCmom, I agree with you, and my life choices prove it. I would never
tolerate a bossy wife, telling me how to wear my hair etc. (unless it was
just friendly advice). I have dated hot women, but as soon as they got
bossy, they were done. NO LEVEL of hotness would make me put up
with a bitch. NONE. They don't make any woman that hot. I mean, if I was
single and we are talking about putting up with that for a few nights to get
my groove on, that is different. But we are talking about a wife, or even
a long term girlfriend.

gisele's not attractive, sorry.
Women like Selma Hayek, Jessica Simpson, etc with looks AND the right 'big' curves are WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYY more attractive than that toothpick, teenage-boy looking body of gisele's.

Ditto.

A beautiful woman should have no straight lines and I should not be able to see rib bones when their arms are at their sides.

Some people are so out of touch with reality. You think just because someone has a lot of money they need to be married to some superficial, stuck up, so-called beauty. This woman he is rumored to be engaged to is very nice looking and she is probably very smart unlike most of the supermodel types of the world. Most of the drop dead gorgeous women I have known I would not want anything to do with. They are so stuck on themselves and expect a man to wine and dine them to the point of emptying your bank account. Screw them and the bus they rode in on. I will take a smart woman any day over a supermodel.

Amen, brother.

Our society's everyday standards have been heavily influenced by show business, MTV, and blow-em-up, smash-em-up Hollywood movies. Unless something is completely obvious, blatant, and out in the open, kids today just can't understand it. Subtlety and discretion no longer exist.

By the sounds of it, Ben found himself, an intelligent, DOWN-TO-EARTH, educated, DISCREET, and ATTRACTIVE woman. No, she might not turn heads the way GIselle the Toothpick would in a public place, but some guys can appreciate the quieter, more subtle things in life-- a girl does not have to wear expensive, revealing clothes, have a reality show on MTV, and a $3000 hair-do to be beautiful......

She looks fine to me.

You guys crack me up! Gisele is paid much more than Brady and Ben combined and she doesn't get slammed on the ground by a 250lbs linebacker. LOL

Yeah...Missy Peregrym. The only thing I remember her from is Heroes (3rd or 4th season I think).

From browsing the article the New Castle News posted, I found a couple of quotes interesting. She seems like a really nice girl though. Wish them the best of luck.

Sources said Roethlisberger was advised by his agent to remain mum on the engagement until the Steelersí playoff run ends. Harlan was a volleyball, basketball and softball star at Laurel prior to her graduation. She went on to play softball at St. Francis University of Loretto, graduating in 2008 with a bachelorís degree in health science and, a year later, a masterís in physician assistant science. She went on to accept a position in the cardiac surgery department of Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh.


Sources confirm that Harlan and Roethlisberger had an off-and-on relationship that began while she was still attending school at St. Francis and recently picked back up.

Sources said Harlan and Roethlisberger were honored at an engagement party Friday night. They are said to be planning a July wedding.
