The Miami Heat star along with help from his NBA buddy Dwyane Wade who served as the ring holder dropped down on one knee and asked his girlfriend and mother of his two children to marry him. Wade said the moment was beautiful, Chris Bosh said it was “very nice” and Chris Paul and his wife Jada Crawley sent their congratulations via Twitter. But the man of the hour said his fiance who joined other engaged stars in at the close of 2011 was happy!
“My girl, she’s very excited. She was surprised. It was great that all the friends and family were there to bring in a new year. I feel good. I feel good. It’s a good point in my life right now.”
Back to the beautiful engagement ring. Jewelry designer Michael O’Conner told US Weekly,
“LeBron rules, on and off the courts! He scored a slam-dunk with this magnificent platinum and diamond engagement ring, featuring a 7-carat pear-shaped center diamond with classic tapered baguette sides. We haven’t really seen this style of ring with a large pear-shaped center diamond since another great love affair: Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor!”
