Hulk Hogan has got engaged.

The legendary wrestler - real name Terry Bollea - and his girlfriend of nearly two years, Jennifer McDaniel, will tie the knot after he popped the question.

A source said: "He is engaged and very happy."

The date for the wedding is not yet known.

The news comes just fives months after Hulk finalised his divorce from ex-wife Linda Bollea, after 25 years together.

Speaking afterwards, Linda admitted she would always love the former WWE grappler - with who she has two children, Nick, 19, and Brooke, 21 - and pledged to stay in contact with him.

She said: "The war is over. I still love him. He's the father of my children. My husband took the big step of stopping this escalating war by making the decision to put this behind us. I am grateful to him for realising that our family can be happier and stronger by working together. He and I both love our family dearly and look forward to working together to make it stronger than it has ever been. My family means the world to me."

Although the pair are now on speaking terms, the initial stages of their divorce were bitterly fought and Hulk, 56, revealed he had contemplated suicide.

In his autobiography, 'My Life Outside the Ring', Hulk wrote: "There were times when I thought that a whole bottle of pills would go down easy.

"Then I noticed the gun in my hand. I was careless with it... I kept my finger pressed right to that trigger... and if I moved that finger an inch in the right direction I would have blown my brains out."

Hulk shot to fame in the 80s as the World Wrestling Federation champion and with appearances in a string of films, including 'Rocky III' in which he fought the title character.

His most famous match against Andre the Giant - real name Andre Rene Roussimoff - at Wrestlemania III in 1987 drew a crowd of around 93,000 and several million TV viewers.
