This is pretty cool.

Joanna Garcia and Nick Swisher, who got married in December, have finalized plans for their honeymoon... in Afghanistan. Explained the Yankees outfielder to The New York Post:

"Three military officers came to the locker room and asked if any of us would like to visit the troops. My hand went straight up, I said, 'I'm in.' I knew Joanna would want to go. It will be our first trip since we got married."

Added Swisher, who comes from a miltary family: "No matter what your views are, these men and women are out there risking everything for us. I realize how fortunate I have been, so I like to give back at every opportunity I can."

All of that and the guy practically has a .380 OBP! Not bad, Swish.

Engaged since last May, the pair is set to arrive in Palm Beach on Wednesday. "This relationship's been the easiest thing I've ever done," Garcia told Us back in July.

"I'm impressed and awed by him every day when I wake up. He's a really happy person and he's just really nice." That and he hit a career high .288 this year!

Sorry, Joanna Garcia. But pretty much every female in America hates you right about now.

Various sources report that the Privileged star is dating her hunky new co-star, former Lipstick Jungle actor Robert Buckley.

Robert Buckley and Joanna Garcia are Hollywood's cutest new couple.

"Joanna and Robert are dating," an insider told Life & Style, pointing to a night out in New York City on February 11, when the pair were seen heading into a club together.

Once inside, they reportedly didn't hide their affection for one another.

"It was pretty late at night, probably 1 a.m., and they were cuddling and kissing. It was very cute; they're pretty hot together," said a witness.

Considering the attractiveness of each star, we don't doubt it.
