Brittney Griner is engaged to the woman of her dreams! The WNBA superstar proposed to girlfriend and fellow WNBA member Glory Johnson, and captured the moment for the rest of us in a series of adorable Instagram post.
The primary concern, of course, was the proposal. She captioned this picture: “Last Night was a Night to Remember. I became the happiest person on this earth! (almost pass out but when that one word came out I came back to life) Me and my baby @missvol25 are in it for Life!”
Johnson returned the favor, posting a morning after pic with her new fiancé. “What I get to wake up to . #LoveMakesYouDoTheCraziestThings”
The 6’8″ Griner was selected as the Number 1 pick in the 2013 WNBA Draft by the Phoenix Mercury, the team she still plays for. Griner officially came out in April, 2013, telling Sports Illustrated “If I can show that I’m out and I’m fine and everything’s OK, then hopefully the younger generation will definitely feel the same way.”
Congratulations Brittney and Glory! We couldn’t be happier for this beautiful couple.
