Congratulations are in order for Kevin Durant! Just weeks after signing a deal with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports, he proposed to his basketball player girlfriend Monica Wright, and of course, she said “Yes.”
Over the weekend, the rumor mill was buzzing with reports that Kevin Durant had put a ring on it, after a photo emerged of the WNBA star wearing a huge rock on her finger, and the reports were confirmed last night.
After the Lynx game, Star Tribune writer Kent Youngblood posted to Twitter:
Post-game Monica Wright confirmed reports that she and Kevin Durant are engaged. So there’s that.
Seattle Storm forward Tina Thompson also spilled the beans beforehand when she tweeted:
Super CONGRATS to @monnie22 and @KDTrey5 two of my #faves so so so happy for you all! I love, love!
What’s super cute about this story is that back in 2011, Kevin Durant tweeted that he needed a basketball player girlfriend, while referencing the movie “Love & Basketball.” He not only snagged his basketball player girlfriend, but she ironically has the same name as the lead character in the movie.
They say “ask and you will receive…”
Here’s to ya’ll….
