George also shared a series of photos from the engagement and subsequent celebration, including a picture of a shot glass with the words “She said yes” and a video of a band playing for the couple and their group of friends.

Rajic documented the party with videos of her new fiancé dancing and a close-up picture of her massive diamond ring. “It doesn’t fit lmao but you get it ❤️️❤️️❤️️❤️️,” she wrote atop the photo.

The couple began dating in 2013 and share two children together. In May, George shared a tribute to Rajic on Mother’s Day, sharing several photos of the pair together and with their daughters, 3-year-old Natasha and 6-year-old Olivia.

“Happy Mother’s Day baby @danielarajic thank you for putting up with my s— and being on top of yours!” he captioned the post. “You’re amazing and incredible at your number 1 job... being mommy! Love you woobie ❤️”

In August, George spoke out about the mental health struggles he faced while living inside the NBA "bubble" during the basketball season, including not being able to see Rajic and his kids.

In an interview with TNT, the athlete revealed he was "in a dark place" after being away from his family and other activities as the "bubble" constantly kept basketball on his mind.

"I underestimated mental health, honestly. I had anxiety. A little bit of depression. Just being locked in here. I wasn't there. I checked out," George explained to reporters.
