NBA superstar LeBron James is engaged to marry long-time girlfriend Savannah Brinson, the mother of his two sons, seven-year-old LeBron Jnr and four-year-old Bryce.
James’ proposal was accepted by Brinson, at the lavish New Year’s Eve dinner party in Miami.
The party was hosted by Dwayne Wade, James’ Heat teammate. The bash was also a birthday party for James, who turned 27 on Friday.
As the clock struck midnight, Wade made a key off-court pass to James, handing over the engagement ring he had been holding until that moment.
James then knelt before Brinson and proposed. She accepted.
Heat owner Micky Arison tweeted: “Congrats to Lebron. KingJames and Savannah so happy 4 u guys.”
“Happy for my brother KingJames and sis SavannahRB on their engagement!!! Extremely happy for them and the good times to come,” Los Angeles Clippers guard Chris Paul posted on his Twitter account.
No wedding date was immediately set.
