YOUNG’S LATEST CALL NO SURPRISE TO FRIENDS

SHARE YOUNG’S LATEST CALL NO SURPRISE TO FRIENDS

East Coast women had John F. Kennedy Jr. to pine for until he tied the knot in September.

Now, West Coast women have something to mourn: 35-year-old San Francisco 49ers quarterback Steve Young, the most eligible bachelor around, is getting married.The bride-to-be is 25-year-old Aimee Baglietto, an alumna of Brigham Young University and like Young, a Mormon. She is to exchange vows with the great-great-great-great grandson of Brigham Young on March 8.

Word of the upcoming nuptials had cynics wondering whether the star quarterback had proposed while suffering from one of his concussions. However, Young said he made the decision "well before" the mishaps; the couple became engaged last month.

"We were kind of just keeping it to ourselves," Young told reporters Monday at the 49ers training camp in Santa Clara. "I think a lot of guys in the building knew for a while and our friends obviously knew - not that we were trying to keep it from anyone - but people talk. So it's out now."

Some radio listeners may have gotten an inkling of Young's intentions last month, when he asked KFOG-FM to play "Amie," a light romantic pop song the the '70s group Pure Prairie League.
