lebron james savannah brinson Savannah Brinson, LeBron James engagedLeBron James proposed to his high school sweetheart Savannah Brinson for New Year’s and she said yes. The two have been together for eight years and have two sons together – LeBron Jr., 8, and Bryce, 5.

The proposal came at a party held Friday night (Dec. 30) to celebrate both New Year’s and LeBron’s 27th birthday. LeBron tells the AP, “My girl, she’s very excited. She would love to answer more questions about it than me. But she’s happy, my family’s happy and that’s what it’s about.”

Miami Heat teammates Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade both chimed in that it was a beautiful moment.

Bosh says, “It was nice. It was real nice.” and Wade adds, “To me, it felt like he was on his knee for an hour. It was probably like 35 seconds. It was great. I feel so happy for them and their entire family.”

There is no wedding date set.
