On August 15, WNBA Phoenix Mercury center Brittney Griner shared a photo on Instagram of herself bending on one knee, with a ring proposing to her girlfriend, Tulsa Shock forward Glory Johnson. The 6 foot 8 dunk enthusiast looked elated while she waited for her answer. Griner stated that her night was unforgettable. “Last Night was a Night to Remember. I became the happiest person on this earth! (almost [sic] pass out but when that one word came out I came back to life) Me and my baby @missvol25 are in it for Life,” she wrote as the caption of her picture.

Johnson also shared the exciting news on Instagram via a photograph of Griner sleeping with Johnson’s engagement ring on her back. She wrote, “What I get to wake up to  @brittneygriner #LoveMakesYouDoTheCraziestThings.”


The two basketball players recently celebrated their two-month anniversary and have been sharing their bliss on Instagram. Check out a few photos below.
