James popped the question to Brinson Saturday night at a private dinner hosted by Remy Martin V at the Shelborne hotel in South Beach. The couple’s two children, LeBron Jr., 7, and Bryce, 4, looked on as James asked for Brinson’s hand in marriage just after midnight and presented his wife-to-be with a pear-shaped diamond ring. Other guests who witnessed the big moment at the intimate affair include Queen Latifah, Jessica White, Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade.

Shortly after Brinson said “Yes!” Twitter was all abuzz with excitement for the happy pair.
