MLB Star Trades in NFL Cheerleader for Victoria's Secret Model

June 7, 2010

Former MLB MVP Ryan Howard recently signed a $125 million contract extension with the Philadelphia Phillies. Coincidentally, shortly after doing so, he began dating one of the most attractive women on the planet. Isn’t fate a truly unpredictable creature?

Page Six of The New York Post reports that the 2008 home run king has recently started a relationship with Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks.

Several months ago various gossip web sites claimed that Howard was dating a Philadelphia Eagles cheerleader.

It’s unclear whether or not he dumped the pom-pom girl for a lingerie model or is now juggling two (or 27) different women at the same time. What we do now, however, is that Howard is doing his best to show Major League Baseball that - despite the recent negative publicity of steroids - chicks still dig the long ball. (And dudes with massive amounts of money.)
