strahan_murphy.jpgFormer Giants defensive end Michael Strahan, who will make his debut as a small-screen actor this fall in the TV show "Brothers," is engaged to Nicole Murphy.

Perhaps the most notable aspect of this union is the making of nine step brothers and sisters. Strahan is the father of four, while Murphy, the ex-wife of sometime actor Eddie Murphy.

Strahan spoke to People Magazine about their relationship:

"I have a great relationship and she's a great girl," says Strahan, who is a father of four. "I don't like to talk much about my private life, but I'm really happy."

Murphy, who has five children with her ex, wouldn't comment about the plans for her future with Strahan. But he says that though they've talked about it, "There aren't any plans for kids... We've got nine between us already."

The couple, who met last year at a party thrown by Derek Jeter, has had at least one public tiff. In March, it was reported that Strahan put a tracking device in Murphy's car when he suspected her of cheating.

There's no wedding date yet, but Strahan's "Brothers" -- which producer Mitchell Hurwitz urged Sports Pros(e) to give a chance -- is set to debut in mid-September.
