After winning her second WNBA championship with the Seattle Storm last season, star forward Breanna Stewart is adding another ring to her collection.
Stewart proposed to her girlfriend, Phoenix Mercury guard Marta Xargay, at Papago Park in Phoenix on Sunday afternoon.
Spoiler alert: she said yes!
Congratulations to the newly engaged couple!
Stewart, 26, has already accrued quite the WNBA resume since she was drafted No. 1 overall by the Storm back in 2016. The native of Syracuse, NY, has led Seattle to two championships, including this past season in the “Wubble”. She also was named league MVP in 2018.
