Lebron James’ Fiance Savannah Brinson Shows Off Engagement Ring [Photos]

After being proposed to by her longtime boyfriend Lebron James, Savannah Brinson showed off her stunning engagement ring at her man’s basketball game.
Brinson was all smiles as she waved her hand around while she watched her soon-to-be-husband’s Miami Heat team play the Charlotte Bobcats on New Years Day. Photographers were able to take a few photos of the big sparling diamond ring that was planted on her left hand. Its a pretty impressive rock.
James got down on one knee in front of family and friends and proposed to his high school sweetheart at a New Year’s Eve party at Shelborne South Beach hotel in Miami Beach. She said yes. James waited all night long for the perfect moment to catch Brinson off guard and pop the question.
‘It was beautiful,’ Heat teammate Chris Bosh said. ‘I told him, “Good luck.” It was nice. It was real nice.’
Here’s a few quotes James and Wade told reporters after the game:
James on his engagement:
My girl, she’s really excited. She would love to answer more questions about it than me. But she’s happy, my family’s happy and that’s what it’s all about. . . It should be a surprise. For any woman, any time something like that happens, she was surprised.
It was great that all the friends and family were there to bring in a new year. Even my kids were happy about it, so that’s good. … I feel good. I feel good. It’s a good point in my life right now.
Dwayne Wade on Lebron and Savannah’s engagement:
They’ve been together for a while. I’m sure they had many discussions of marriage and the possibility. So I thought he did a good job of catching her when she least expected it even if she did expect it.
He kind of caught her in a moment right after New Year’s after we all did the countdown when everybody was (yelling), ‘Happy New Year.’ Then he got her. So it was good. To me, it felt like he was on his knee for an hour. It probably was like 35 seconds. It was great. I feel so happy for them and their entire family.
James and Brinson, who have been dating since they were 16, have two young sons, 7-year-old LeBron Jr. and 4-year-old Bryce.
