Brittney Griner & Glory Johnson: WNBA Players Engaged
A huge congratulations are in order for two of the WNBA’s biggest and brightest stars! Brittney and Glory will be getting married sometime in the near future!
Brittney proposed to the Tulsa Shock forward on Aug. 14 and let everyone in the world know about the special lady in her life.
“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!” Brittney wrote in a touching Instagram message on Aug. 15.
Glory shared a picture of her gorgeous ring one day after the sweet proposal. “What I get to wake up to @brittneygriner #LoveMakesYouDoTheCraziestThings” she wrote. Brittney and Glory were so overwhelmed with excitement about their impending nuptials that Brittney couldn’t resist posting a photo with “dinner with my fiancé” as the caption. So sweet!
Brittney is in her second season with the Phoenix Mercury. Glory is in her third with the Tulsa Shock.
In 2014, Brittney released her memoir In My Skin, which revealed how she came to embrace her role as a gay athlete. In an interview with SI.com she said that she has “always been open” about who she was and her sexuality.
“It really wasn’t too difficult, I wouldn’t say I was hiding or anything like that,” she said in the interview. “I’ve always been open about who I am and my sexuality. So, it wasn’t hard at all. If I can show that I’m out and I’m fine and everything’s OK, then hopefully the younger generation will definitely feel the same way.”
We wish Brittney and Glory all the best with their engagement. We can’t wait to hear about the wedding!
