Phil Costa is now a full-fledged Hulkamaniac – or at least a Hulka-daughter-maniac.

Costa, a center who is entering his fourth NFL season with the Dallas Cowboys, pledged to take on the most famous wrestler in the world as his father in law when he dropped to one knee at the Bellagio in Las Vegas (nice touch, Phil) and proposed to Brooke Hogan, the daughter of Hulk Hogan.

No word on whether Hulkster will rip off his tuxedo shirt after walking Brooke down the aisle.

Here's a photo of the big moment, posted to Brooke Hogan's Instagram account:

We shouldn't use up all the snarky jokes at Hulk's expense (also considered: "Will Hulk drop the big leg on Costa if he doesn't treat Brooke right?" "Will Brooke walk down the aisle to 'Real American?'" "Does Costa have to survive a cage match with Hulk and King Kong Bundy to get Hulk's blessing?" and "What does the Iron Sheik think about all this?" ... BONUS JOKE: "Will someone intercept the wedding rings from Tony Romo?") because Brooke is famous on her own right. She was part of the reality series "Hogan Knows Best," and parlayed that into some singing success and minor acting roles.

We're glad for the couple, as Brooke proclaimed it the happiest moment of her life. Just more proof that if you train, say your prayers and eat your vitamins, it'll all turn out with a storybook ending. Brother.
