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.”
