American pop singer Willa Ford is engaged to her hockey player boyfriend MICHAEL MODANO. The Dancing With The Stars reality TV beauty, 25, accepted Dallas Stars player Modano's proposal earlier this week (ends01DEC06). Ford, who dated Nick Carter from 1998-2001, says, "We were out to dinner the other night, and I think he had it (the ring) with him the entire night. "He was really nervous. Then right before we went to sleep he asked me and I said, 'Yes.' Ford and Modano started dating in 2002, but split up several times.
