Two-time All-Star champion, Breanna Stewart, announced her engagement to girlfriend Marta Xargay on Sunday.
The pair were engaged in Arizona’s Papago Park on May 2 where 26-year-old Stewart got down on one knee and asked Xargay to marry her.
Stewart, a forward Seattle Storm player, has a strong record of wins with the team. The American pro basketball team has won four championship titles in total with Stewart contributing to the wins in 2018 and 2020.
Posting on social media, the basketball star shared a photo of herself proposing to Xargay.
“Did a thing. Another ring. She said YES. #wifey,” Stewart, 26, wrote.
The Spanish player confirmed the news with an Instagram post of her own: “Life isn’t just about the moments, it’s about who we share them with! I said YES.”
Both women were flooding with praise and congratulations from fellow teammates and pro athletes.
“So happy for you two! If y’all can make it through the bubble you goooooood!!!!” Megan Rapinoe commented under Xargay’s post.
Stewart’s Seattle Storm teammate Sue Bird also shared a supportive message online.
