On December 31, 2011 the Miami Heat’s very own basketball star player LeBron James proposed to long-time girlfriend (and mother of his two children), Savannah Brinson. It’s not a surprise of course that she accepted the marriage proposal and the two are now happily engaged after many years of dating.
James’s proposal took place at a New Year’s Eve party in South Beach at the Shelborne Hotel, a classy place that’s used to hosting events for big name stars like James and the others on the guest list, like Queen Latifah, and fellow team mates Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. A rep for Remy Martin V, who hosted the dinner, says, ‘Everyone is extremely happy.’
The happy newly engaged couple’s two kids, LeBron Jr. and Bryce were on hand to witness the joyous occasion and share in their parents’ bliss. The dinner was originally a celebration for James’s 27th birthday, but seeing as he and Brinson had been dating since high school, he found the moment fit to finally pop the question.
