Phoenix Mercury star Brittney Griner revealed on Instagram Friday morning that she was engaged to her girlfriend.

In the photo, Tulsa Shock forward Glory Johnson is seen covering her face with Griner kneeling, holding a ring box and diamond ring while wearing a pink bowtie.

Griner’s caption for the photo read:

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!

Johnson’s Instagram account showed more photos of the night, which was set apart as a celebration of the couple’s two-month anniversary.

The two served as teammates on the WNBA’s Western Conference All-Star team.
