Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is engaged to girlfriend Ashley Harlan.
Rumors are swirling that Ben Roethlisberger and Ashley Harlan are engaged. Their engagement rumors having been circulating on Twitter since Christmas.
While the two-time Super Bowl winner isn’t denying the rumors, he says his private life is just that – private. At the Steelers’ first practice of the week, he addressed the subject saying:
“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 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.”
The Steelers are the AFC’s No. 2 playoff seed, and Roethlisberger is trying to earn his third Super Bowl championship.
The quarterback’s season got off to a rocky start. Roethlisberger was suspended for the Steelers’ first four games for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy in an alleged incident with a college student on March 5, 2010, in Milledgeville, Ga.
Roethlisberger wasn’t charged, but he was disciplined by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
The Steelers (12-4) don’t play until they host a divisional playoff game Jan. 15.
