Brittney Griner Is Engaged to Fellow WNBA Star Glory Johnson

Posted on

WNBA star Brittney Griner is engaged.

The Phoenix Mercury player, who came out last year, documented her proposal to girlfriend and fellow WNBA player Glory Johnson on Thursday in a cute Instagram pic that captured the special moment.

“Last Night was a Night to Remember,” she wrote on Friday. “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!”

Just a day earlier, Johnson, 24, had posted a video of Griner, 23, opening a present for their two-month anniversary.

On Friday, the Tulsa Shock player shared a photo of her engagement ring resting on Griner’s back. “What I get to wake up to,” she captioned the image, along with the hashtag “#LoveMakesYouDoTheCraziestThings.”
