LeBron James finally puts a ring on longtime girlfriend's finger. The basketball ace has proposed to Savannah Brinson, mother of his two children, on New Year's Eve during a party at the SL Nightclub in Miami. They were also celebrating his 27th birthday.
Congratulations have been pouring in on Twitter for the couple. Miami Heat owner Micky Arison, fellow basketball star Chris Paul and DJ LaLa Vasquez were among them. Brinson herself tweeted before the proposal, "Very excited for tonight's festivities :) I got a feeling this is going to be a New Years to remember!"
James and Brinson have been together since high school. LeBron James Jr. was born on October 6, 2004 and Bryce Maximus James was born on June 14 three years later.
Last week over Christmas weekend, another basketball player, Michael Jordan, popped the question to Yvette Prieto, his girlfriend who is 16 years younger than him.
