Brooke Hogan, 25, got engaged to Dallas Cowboy Phil Costa, 25, in Vegas

You guys, I have to defend Brooke Hogan. I know, I know. But I hate when people pick on her for her muscular/athletic build and I really hate it when people assume that “men aren’t attracted to that kind of body.” Brooke has had boyfriends… and now she has a fiancé! See, some men do like that kind of build. For real. There’s no punchline. Anyway, Brooke Instagram’d these photos over the weekend and she revealed that professional football player (for the Dallas Cowboys) Phil Costa had proposed to her. In Las Vegas. In front of the Bellagio.

Brooke knows best! Brooke Hogan, daughter of pro wrestler Hulk Hogan, got engaged to Dallas Cowboy player Phil Costa on Saturday, June 29 in Las Vegas, Nev.

The former VHI reality star, 25, posted a photo of the proposal on her Instagram page. In the pic, Costa, 25, is seen on one knee, presenting a ring to a shocked-looking Brooke, who has her hand covering her mouth. The Paris Hotel’s mock Eiffel Towel glows behind them, so it seems the engagement happened on a balcony at the Bellagio.

“Happiest moment of my LIFE,” the singer, actress, and model wrote. “I am marrying my best friend. I wouldn’t choose anyone else. I am so lucky and so grateful.”

While dad Hulk, 59, hasn’t tweeted anything yet, her brother Nick, 22, shared his excitement for the couple on June 29, writing, “MY SISTER IS GETTING MARRIED!!!!! CONGRATULATIONS BROOKEY!!!!!”

Mom Linda Hogan (who Brooke shared a sometimes hot-and-cold relationship with following her parents’ marital problems), tweeted, “My Brooke is getting married!! Phil proposed to her last night!” She later added a pic of the pair looking at the Vegas Eiffel Tower, writing, “The future Mr. and Mrs. Costa!”

Brooke appeared with her family on VHI’s Hogan Knows Best from 2005 to 2007, before getting her own spin-off show, Brooke Knows Best, which aired from 2008 to 2009. In November 2007, Linda filed for divorce from Hulk after 24 years of marriage.

Costa, a New Jersey native, is entering his fourth NFL season with the Dallas Cowboys. Brooke currently works for TNA wrestling.

You guys, Hulk Hogan is going to be super-sad. Maybe this engagement and (hopefully, eventual) marriage will go a long way towards creating some much-needed distance between Hulk and Brooke, though. And hopefully Phil knows what he’s doing. Cough. Godspeed, Phil. I get the feeling that he’s a meathead and she’s a ditz and maybe that will work out? Maybe for a couple of years. Good luck, y’all.

    I agree, there’s nothing wrong with her body, she worked hella hard for it. I’m glad to see her happy after the shenanigans her parents have pulled (and her mom being with a dude that’s what…the same age if not younger than her?!).

  2. QQ says:

    Nah, see, i can say Brooke has a creepy, gross, entitled family, and that they are trainwrecky, That she has a Bit (lot) of a Butterface by virtue of sharing all of her parentals most salient features down to stringy bleached hair But I’ll NEVER be here for clowning her Magnanimously banging ass Stallionette Body, NOPE Never ever She is tall, stacked, leggy,and there isnt anything to shade there

  3. Jackson says:

    I have no problem with her build or body type – it’s what she was born with and she’s got an athletic shape. She is, however, ridiculously orange, wears makeup like a bad drag queen and comes from a disgusting family. And does she really make a living as a “singer, actress, model” because as far as I can tell, she has no discernable talent. If her father wasn’t some D-list whatever, no one would even know her name.

    • Barhey says:

      +1 I can’t throw shade at her body type at all because she can’t change it. I have the same broad shoulders and no matter how thin I get I’ll always look bigger. But Brooks problem is the crazy hair/makeup/clothes that pull her into drag queen territory with that body type. Girl needs to tone is way, way down.

  4. neelyo says:

    She’s only 25? She’s always looked so hard. The hair doesn’t help.

  5. brin says:

    Poor Hulk. Whatcha gonna do, brotha?!

  6. marie says:

    aww, how sweet. while I think the rest of her family is crappy, I got no problem with her or her build/body. good for them.

  7. OriginallyBlue says:

    People have an issue with her body? I think her body is fab.

  8. Simply Red says:

    Congrats to her..

    That’s all I will say

  9. MonicaQ says:

    I used to see her all the time here in Clearwater. She’s a big girl (tall, broad) and she looks great. The Victoria Secret track suits matching with her mom with “PINK” across the ass she could’ve done without.

    That being said, good for her. And it’s not like the Cowboys are going to win the NFC East so no worries about distractions for Costa. /sports shaaaaade

    Nothing wrong with her body. The problem is she still looks like a worn out 40 year old stripper. I’d never guess she was 25.

  11. Joanna says:

    She has a great body. I think the too-blond hair and orange skin age her. I watched the reality show, she’s a nice girl.

  12. sauvage says:

    Yeah, ‘cos nothin’ says ‘Everlasting’ as brightly as Las Vegas (pun intended).

  13. Arock says:

    Can’t wait to see the class-tacular wedding dress she’ll wear. Please Jesus- let her mom be the designer and her father wear the hulk rag. Please.

  14. MrsBPitt says:

    What a surprise…and lucky they just happened to have a photographer standing by to take pics of this super surprise!!

  15. Nerd Alert says:

    LOVE her body. And yes, a lot of men do like that.

  16. Froggy says:

    She better keep him away from her mom.

  17. GeekLuva says:

    I wanted to see some ring pron! Anyone got links?

  18. Lucy2 says:

    She’s only 25??? I thought she was older.

    I don’t see anything wrong with her figure either- the problem is she subscribes to the Mariah Carey/Christina Aguilera school of fashion- wear everything 2 sizes too small.

  19. Alexandra says:

    No matter all the bad rap that her family weighs upon her. She seems to be a genuinely sweet girl
