Basketball star Brittney Griner and girlfriend Glory Johnson recently became engaged to be married.

The couple was celebrating their two-month anniversary last Thursday when Griner popped the question.

Griner posted this photo of the proposal to Instagram with the caption: “Last Night was a Night to Remember I became the happiest person on this earth! (almost pass out but when that one word came out I came back to life) Me and my baby @missvol25 are in it for Life!”

Griner, who plays for the Phoenix Mercury, is the first basketball player to ever propose to someone on a rival team.

Johnson is also a WNBA player, playing on the Tulsa Shock.

Johnson posted this photo of Griner and the engagement ring on Instagram with the caption: “What I get to wake up to @brittneygriner #LoveMakesYouDoTheCraziestThings.”

Griner came out as gay early into her WNBA career in April 2013.

Earlier this month, ESPN released a short documentary profiling Griner called “Lifesize: Brittney Griner.”
