WNBA Star Brittany Griner Engaged to Girlfriend Glory Johnson

Comments

Wedding bells are set to ring for WNBA star Brittney Griner and her girlfriend, former Tennessee Vols star, Glory Johnson.

Griner took to Instagram to announce the big news writing, "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!"

The sweet caption was accompanied by a photo of Griner down on one knee proposing to a surprised Johnson. 

A true example of love and basketball, Griner is a two-time WNBA All-Star for the Phoenix Mercury while Johnson was picked number four overall in the 2012 WNBA draft by the Tulsa Shock. 

Griner who came out last year after penning a revealing memoir, In My Skin, has since embraced her role as a prominent gay figure in the female athlete community.

Congratulations to the happy couple.
