Landry Fields is now dating buxom, blonde model Elaine Alden (Photos)

When he’s not doing nerdy secret handshakes with his BFF Jeremy Lin, Landry Fields evidently can spit some game. We say so because Fields is now dating dime piece and model Elaine Alden, whom you can get to know better here. The two were seen a few weeks ago partying in Vegas, including at the Electric Daisy Carnival. This is what happens when you’re a professional athlete. Your move, Lin.

Jerome Boateng spends night with Playboy model before leaving for Euro 2012

Euro 2012 kicks off this Friday. And, as is customary, national soccer teams have been descending upon host countries Poland and Ukraine a few days early to get settled. The German team left Frankfurt for Gdansk on Monday afternoon, but it appears German defender Jerome Boateng wanted to get in some last-minute action with a buxom nudie model in a cheap hotel much earlier in the morning.

According to Dirty Tackle, the Bayern Munich star was spotted early Monday morning in the Mercure Hotel, a €79-a-night (roughly $98) joint near the Berlin airport, with ex-Playboy model Gina-Lisa Lohfink (SFW picture here). Boateng, 23, was reportedly seen at 3 a.m. leaving the former “Germany’s Next Topmodel” contestant’s room. And yet, supposedly nothing happened.

“Jerome wanted to get to know me,” Lohfink said, according to The Sun (link NSFW). “We met in the bar at my hotel around 2 a.m. We went up to my room but we just chatted.”

So, to recap: A German soccer star may or may not have had a late-night romp with a blonde bombshell roughly 340 miles away from where his team was set to leave for the most important international soccer tournament Europe has to offer less than 12 hours later. Yeah, the German coaching staff’s not going to be high-fiving Boateng over this one.

But it’s a good thing Boateng is playing in a tournament where this sort of thing is in some way encouraged.

Amare Stoudemire got engaged to girlfriend Alexis Welch in Paris (Picture)

It’s turning out to be a big summer for Amare Stoudemire. Eager to change the conversation from his whole fire extinguisher mistake, the Knicks forward announced a few attention-grabbing items in the last month.

Three weeks ago he announced he was going to college, and over the weekend he revealed he’s engaged after proposing in Paris to the mother of his three children.

“I have been planning my proposal for a while, and [Paris] … seemed like a perfect place,” Stoudemire told the New York Post’s Page Six. “I am so happy she said yes, and now we can continue to build our life together as husband and wife.”

I can’t think of anything more genuine and romantic than having a photographer standing by to take a picture of your engagement and sending it around to all the gossip mags. The engagement clearly is a PR thing; you really think athletes willingly get into Page Six unless it’s planned?

Jimmer Fredette got married, and DeMarcus Cousins wished him an extra special night

The Jimmer Fredette moment we all were waiting for finally came over the weekend: He got married to Whitney Wonnacott. The happy couple got engaged last August, and finally tied the knot on Saturday.

Given that Jimmer’s Mormon faith frowns upon premarital sex, the virgin jokes were in full form, including this one from his Sacramento Kings teammate DeMarcus Cousins:

I’m guessing their honeymoon in Hawaii was, shall we say, eventful. At least he’ll be able to avoid the same jokes Tim Tebow receives in the Jets locker room.

Ryan Tannehill’s wife Lauren will be his real contribution to the Dolphins (Pictures)

The Miami Dolphins went ahead and reached for quarterback Ryan Tannehill with the eighth overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. About the only redeeming factor for the pick is that Tannehill has an attractive wife.

Lauren Tannehill attended the draft with her husband and even seemed to tip the pick via her Twitter account:

Lauren became well known among college football fans last year when ESPN showed her on TV during the Texas-Texas A&M game. Ryan was amused by all the attention she received.

“No, I think it’s funny. I think it’s great whenever people tweet her or say anything about it. It’s pretty funny,” Tannehill said. “She went into a restaurant a couple of days later and the waiter said, ‘I saw you on TV. You’re Ryan’s girlfriend.’ I thought the whole thing was great.”

According to Player Wives, the two met at Texas A&M in 2009, became engaged last May, and wed in January. Lauren graduated from Texas A&M in 2010 with a major in Communications and minor in Psychology. She’s also a model.

Here are more pictures of Lauren Tannehill:

Alex Morgan’s boyfriend says the two are ‘going to be together for a very long time’

Sorry if you were one of the thousands of eager males who sent marriage proposals to Alex Morgan during the World Cup — you don’t have a chance — if her boyfriend has anything to say about it, that is.

Servando Carrasco has been together with Morgan since the two played soccer at Cal together in college. Though the two were in opposite parts of the country playing professionally, they said Skype was the key to their relationship. And even though Morgan has exploded in popularity — she’s thrown out the first pitch at an MLB game and posed in Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit edition — the two are still together.

Carrasco helped organize a deal for Morgan to be traded to Seattle so they could play in the same city. He also told The Seattle Times he sees the two staying together regardless of how much attention Morgan gets.

“In my eyes, she’s the same girl that I met in college. Nothing’s changed in our relationship,” Carrasco said. “We’re going to be together for a very long time. She’s a very down-to-earth girl. She doesn’t let all of the attention get to her.

“She’s been so successful lately, but she still has that same work ethic. The sky’s the limit for her, and I think the Olympics coming up is going to be a great stage for her. I’m sure she’s going to do some amazing things this summer. There’s a lot of opportunities coming up for her and I’m extremely proud of her.”

Carrasco’s comments are not surprising. Last September, Morgan even said all the attention she was receiving was a little weird, so it’s no surprise to hear she hasn’t changed.

Kobe, Vanessa Bryant attend Kings playoff game with their daughters

Is a reconciliation between Kobe and Vanessa Bryant coming? It sure seems that may be the case.

For the second time in two months, Kobe and his wife, who filed for divorce in December, were photographed together. In February, Vanessa attended the Lakers-Hawks game on Valentine’s Day and the two were pictured kissing in a tunnel.

On Sunday, Kobe stuck around Staples Center after the Lakers beat the Mavericks earlier in the day to watch Game 3 of the Kings-Canucks playoff series. He and his family watched the game from seats a few rows above the glass. He and Vanessa sat apart from each other with their daughters in between.

I don’t know what’s going on between them, but they’re clearly getting along much better than most couples who are supposed to be in the middle of a divorce.
