Hulk Confirms Ex-Wife, 50, Is Engaged to 21-Year-Old

 Barry Brecheisen/

Hulk Hogan has confirmed tabloid reports that his 50-year-old ex-wife Linda is engaged to 21-year-old Charlie Hill.

“I'm ecstatic for her, I'm very happy for them," he said in a statement to RadarOnline. "I think they're perfect for each other. I wish them the best."

Hogan (real name: Terry Bollea), 56, hasn't always felt that way.

Hill is one year younger than Hulk and Linda's daughter Brooke and was pals with their son Nick. Charlie started dating Linda when he was 19 — around the same time she split from the famed wrestler in 2007 (a newspaper reporter broke the news to Hogan that his wife was divorcing him).

"You live half a mile from the 20,000-square-foot home you can't go to anymore, you're driving through downtown Clearwater [Fla.] and see a 19-year-old boy driving your Escalade, and you know that a 19-year-old boy is sleeping in your bed, with your wife…" Hogan famously seethed to Rolling Stone last year.

But Hulk's attorney David Houston said the wrestler — who is also engaged (to girlfriend Jennifer McDaniel) — was just upset after the split and has since moved on.

"Obviously, when you go through a divorce, there is a great deal of emotion and you go through your ups and downs," Houston told Radar. "He was married to her for 23 years so there is a certain degree of affection and he does wish her the best."
