Wow, talk about a way to kick off the new year!!! In the midst of all these divorces left and right, we are happy to report that BronBron and his longtime boo are officially engaged!!
The new year is already off to a hot start for Miami Heat forward LeBron James, who rang in 2012 by proposing to longtime girlfriend Savannah Brinson at his 27th birthday party Saturday night in Miami.
Brinson and James are high-school sweethearts, dating back to James’ days as a standout at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in Akron, Ohio. Brinson is the mother of LeBron’s two kids, LeBron, Jr., 7, and Bryce, 4.
LeBron turned 27 on Friday, and in addition to the engagement, Saturday night’s bash also featured the kind of extravagant birthday cake that you’d expect at a party thrown by King James, a towering rum cake adorned with edible 18-carat lions and Swarovski crystals.
In photos from the event, LeBron can be seen wearing a black tuxedo with a bowtie and black glasses, and Brinson is wearing a black dress.
Shortly after 1 a.m. ET, Heat owner Micky Arison sent a tweet congratulating his star player on the engagement, writing, “Congrats to Lebron. @KingJames and Savannah so happy 4 u guys.”
Other NBA stars (and their wives) got in on the action too, as tweets of congratulations came in from L.A. Clippers point guard Chris Paul and LaLa Vazquez, the wife of New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, among others
James isn’t the first member of the Big Three to put a ring on it in 2011. Chris Bosh married Adrienne Williams in June at an extravagant wedding at Miami’s Fontainebleau Hotel — an event that required the NBA to make an exception allowing team executives and players to mingle during the lockout.
We are so happy for them and wish them the best!!! It’s about time BronBron!!!
