Former Sopranos star Jamie-Lynn Sigler is involved in yet another eyebrow-raising romance: This time with 22-year-old Cutter Dysktra, the son of disgraced former Mets outfielder Lenny Dykstra.
The elder Dykstra is serving a three-year sentence for grand theft auto and falsifying financial statements. He was one of Major League Baseball's strongest hitters during his career, and is credited with turning around the 1986 World Series between the Red Sox and the Mets: When New York was down two games, Dykstra hit a walk-off home run in Game 3 that helped rally the Mets to series victory.
Cutter himself is a rising baseball star, currently playing infield for the Washington Nationals.
Sigler and Dykstra were reportedly introduced by mutual friends: Yankees outfielder and switch hitter Nick Swisher and his wife Joanna Garcia. Sigler -- who will be 31 in May -- was a bridesmaid at their 2010 wedding.
Sources told the New York Post the couple has been dating for a few months, and things are going really well, adding, I haven't seen [Sigler] this happy in a long time.
The new couple is open with their relationship on Twitter. Earlier this month, after spending the week together in Florida, they exchanged affectionate tweets (though Sigler's no longer appears on her Twitter timeline). They have each posted photos with the other.
In 2003, Sigler married her agent A. J. DiScala. The couple divorced in 2006. In 2008, she began dating her Entourage co-star Jerry Ferrara, who played Turtle on the show.
The next year, while Sigler was still dating Ferrera, ABC News reporter Dan Harris embarrassed both of them when he questioned Sigler about whether her on-screen relationship with Ferrera's character was realistic -- not realizing the two were dating in real life.
